When powering up from a cold start press F8 as if tapping on a piano. You may get a boot from what screen first, in this case press Escape and then F8 immediately thereafter. You should then see a Safe Mode Selection boot screen. Options include, Last Known good configuration. Often this is a good choice. Sometimes you are presented with a selection of Restore Points to choose from as well. These all depend on the Bios you have and what version of that bios is installed.

Do the F8 tap tap until you get the Safe Mode boot screen. When you do choose Safe Mode, you are then asked what OS to boot, usually this is only the version of XP or Vista you have onboard. In any case take that and press Enter again.

Don't dismay should you not get the F8 key press right the first time, there is a certain knack to it.

Turn it off
Turn it on. As soon as you hit the power button, press the F8 key about once every second until you see the boot options menu. Use the arrow keys to select safe mode and then press the Enter key.

Try this solution to your problem.

Start your computer
1. Keep pressing "F1,F2 or F8" as the laptop computer starts.(Depending on your computer)
This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

We cannot even suspect that it is a hardware issue beacuse you can get it into safe mode however you are not able to enter the BIOS.

Please provide me with all the above details.

Sony Vaio VGN-A417M. Could someone please tell me how to siort out my laptop. Whenevr i turn it on it comes up with balck screen with'Error Loading Operating system'? thanks in advance.


Hello snowdonian,

You may need to reformat your Vaio. Some important components of your operating system may be corrupted.

If you're using Windows XP, check this link out,
http://helpdesk.its.uiowa.edu/windows/instructions/reformat.htm

But before you reformat, you might want to give it a shot & go to safe mode. If you're able to go to safe mode, you can save important files like pictures, documents, etc.

To go to safe mode, keep pressing the F2 button when you turn your laptop on.

Just choose safe mode & you should be all set.

If it won't go to safe mode, then you can proceed & reformat your laptop.

Hope this helps & best of luck!
