My Sony vaio vgc-rb42g when I turn on it says boot manger is compressed it says hit crl alt del to continu but goes back to same screen. Kids messed with it don't know wat happend


You will need a windows recovery disc, you can make one on any Windows Vista/7 computer

Windows Button > Control Panel > Backup and Restore > Create a system repair disc.

Boot to the recovery disc and type the following commands
compact /U C:\bootmgr
compact /U C:\ntldr

That should uncompress them.

Won't start says windows did not shut down normally tries to start but comes back to same screen


Could be dozens of things. This usually happens when there is a crash (blue screen) during boot up. Did you recently do any upgrades? Is this Windows XP or Vista? Try starting in Safe Mode if you can. The possible fixes include doing a CHKDSK (check disk), rolling back to older drivers, or a repair install of the OS.

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V3M and I have just a black screen after starting it. I can hear windows loading, and I get the vaio logo, then the Windows XP logo but then blackness. I can get the Bios...


If you can see the windows logo and get into the bios then it is not the graphics card.

Most likely cause is the os itself, just after post press F8 repeatetly until you have the boot mode page open and choose safe mode, in safe mode do a system restore, goto start bar, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore, and start from a resent restore point. This can can take a while, so be patient and let the computer restore itself until you have the windows screen up.

If the restore dosent work, goto safe mode again, right click on my computer goto properties and enter device manager, in there under display adapters click on the plus sign and uninstall the graphics card, reboot. hope this helps post back if need farther help.

COMPUTER SHUTS DOWN AFTER 4/5 HOURS-- SOMETIMES HAVE TO RESTORE TO EARLIER DATE-- THERE IS CLICKING IN THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE SHUT DOWN


The PSU has a thermal heat related problem, try replacing the PSU with a new one, they are quite cheap. I think this will sort ya problem.
Are you sure the clicking isn't comming from the hard Drive? & they are both on way out as bad PSU can "Hurt" other bits.

My computer has frozen during shutdown it has never happend before.Please help !!!


this sometimes happens with operating systems.nothing to worry just press and hold down the power button of the pc for 5-6 seconds and you will see that the system will shut down completely.then just turn it on the normal way you do and it should work fine.if it is vista then it may give you a prompt to start windows normally.just hit enter on that option.

Can't open DVD writer and Dvd Rom drive Sony Vaio VGC-RB 34G


There should be a very small hole on the front of the dvd plate. Push a small paper clip straight in. This should release the drive.

I cannot boot my vgc-rc310g after removing trogan horse (2ea)


Your laptop still has a virus. From your description, you seem computer savy. What u need to do is you need to boot your system with UBCD ( can be downloaded at www.UBCD4win.com) and search for files with the extension as .exe and delete the ones that look like folders.

then you reboot and try and log into your system. Next, download a software called Combofix. You google it out and get a download. run that to remove the remaining viruses and fix your regsitry.

Sony Vaio VGC-RB576 motherboard fried


if you have problems with outages and surges, then the only way to protect electrical goods is by purchasing a surge protection socket extension. But you should check that your power options in control panel are set that on the shutdown drop down list the pc lists shut down and does not say restart. Also go into bios F2 or Del on boot up and look and see if time and date are correct, if not then the cmos battery needs changing (Cr2032 disc chaped on motheroard) then in advanced cmos settings, then look for 'ACPI', make sure this is enabled so as to support windows shutdown settings, then save settings and exit for a reboot.
