How do i reboot my laptop


Restore to factory settings

Restoring your Sony VAIO computer to its original factory settings is a great way to remove old programs and files that are buried within your computer that you no longer need, or to get rid of a virus that you just can't seem to shake.


This process will allow you to start anew with your computer, and can potentially save you from simply throwing the computer away because you don't think it can handle the workload anymore and spending money on a new machine.


Unplug any cables connected to your Sony VAIO machine with the exception of the power cord and monitor.


Click "Start" in the lower left corner of your screen.

Click "Control Panel."


Click "Performance and Maintenance."


Scroll down to the bottom of the Performance and Maintenance screen and click "VAIO" recovery wizard. The VAIO Recovery Wizard dialogue box will appear.


Click "Next."


Select "Proceed with System Recovery" and click "Next."


Select "C Drive Recovery" and click "Next."


Click "Next" to confirm that you want to proceed with the C Drive Recovery.


Click "Finish" to restart your Sony VAIO machine and initiate the recovery procedure.

Upon restarting your computer, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will prepare your hard drive for recovery and then restart your computer again.


The necessary files will be copied to your computer and your hard drive will be recovered.


Click "Finish" when a screen appears telling you that your recovery process is complete.

Your computer will restart.


Click "Next" when you arrive at the Windows setup screen.

Follow the on-screen instructions to setup your version of Windows.


When you have finished setting up Windows, click "Finish."

Your computer will restart.

Upon restart, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will install necessary files on your computer.


Your computer will restart automatically when these files are installed and your Sony VAIO will be restored to its original factory settings.


Hope this helps

Screen is white with black vertical lines upon booting up. I can't get beyond this screen.


The video card (built-in on the motherboard) maybe faulty or the LCD screen is faulty.
Connect an external monitor to the video port of your laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up your laptop. If the video card id OK then the laptop will automatically divert the video to the external monitor. Then the problem is a faulty LCD screen.
If the external monitor also displays black vertical lines then you have a faulty video card and since it is part of the motherboard it is impossible to fix.

My sony vaio always loads up an application called hidden form I see in windows task manager. various help lines say it comes from vaio marketing tools but I cannot find that on my program list. I am...


Hi,
Any application loaded into the memory takes its toll depending upon its size and nature. You can use CCLEANER software/utility. Its FREE, small size, easy to use and completely safe. Click here to download CCleaner. Install CCleaner, Click 'TOOLS' and 'STARTUP' and look for the application and if found here, disable it. As you have not mentioned the name of the application I can not say much about it. Before deleting/ disabling the application, search the internet to check if the application is safe to remove, its function may be required.
Make a backup of the registry before proceed. However, you may proceed without registry back up, if you like.


Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Sounds like the HAL.DLL problem that I have with my Aspire One.
Try booting off a genuine Windows XP disc and choosing the 'recovery console' option. At the command line, type 'CHKDSK C:' and press Enter. If you're lucky, that will do the trick.

I was playing online games on my sony vaio. Suddenly I got blue lines on the screen and the laptop stopped responding. So I tried restarting the laptop but I get blue thin vertical lines before the laptop...


Blue thin lines before it boots will rule out an operating system or driver fault. So it would appear something in the machine has failed.
Do you have a VGA monitor you can connect to it and see whether it shows the fault? This will show that if the fault also shows on the external monitor, it is likely an electronic fault on the main board, whereas if it works on the external monitor but not on the built-in monitor, my guess would be the cable that goes from the main board up through the hinge of the screen into it, or a connector, or an actual fault with the LCD display.
Windows booting normally once the display drivers were disabled indicates to me that Windows is no longer detecting the faulty display and therefore boots normally - possibly pointing to failed electronics in some way. It could even be corrupt BIOS that controls the video or something along these lines, though that's unlikely.
Good luck, either way it sounds like it's off to a computer repair shop. Is it under warranty?
