If your computer has the older ps2 keyboard connection as well as the usbbuy or borrow a ps2 keyboard (small round plug goes into back of computer) and reboot.. some computers do not provide usb support for the keyboard until the machine has loaded windows so a usb keyboard wont work when you need it to on boot-up.. you will be able to use the ps2 keyboard to select the options your machine is offering you (probably after a bad windows crash?)

Vaio VCG-LT38CE on boot goes directly to black screen with 3 beeps on the boot?


Keyboard is not connected properly


Verify that the keyboard is connected properly to the computer by turning off your computer and then disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to the computer.

Stuck key


Ensure that there are no stuck keys on the keyboard.

If all keys appear to be ok and you have a standard desktop computer with keyboard, turn the keyboard over and gently hit the back of the keyboard to loosen any dirt or hair that may be stuck in the keyboard.


Bad keyboard


Try another keyboard on the computer to verify that the keyboard has not gone bad.

Bad PS/2 or AT port


If all of the above solutions are not able to resolve your issue it is likely that the port on the back of the computer may be bad and the motherboard or I/O board may need to be replaced.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated

on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in


Test all power and data leads that attach from motherboard to your hard drive IDE SATA

make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

if its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail


check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it


restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function.


hope this helps

If i leave computer on without anyone using it . computer goes to black/dark screen , can't perform any functions. also computer crashes at times during use.


You need to check your power settings. It is being set to go to turn of the drivers after a certain amount of time.

Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options Then change the power options so it does not shut off the hard drive.

My pc screen is half blue and half black, how can i fix it?


Hello. This blue screen in Windows the people call the dead blue screen. The bad news is if you dont have a backup of data, you need to pud out the Hard disk in other pc to save your data. After this you need to recovery windows to the original first day state. If your pc dont come with disks you need to check if after pc come up press f10 or f9 to enter to recovery mode. You need to re install the poerating system and all programs. :(
this is my experience in this cases.

Can't access desktop, windows won't load so pc won't shut down


Hold th epower button down on your tower for about 5-10 seconds and it should shut off. Then you can turn it back on. If that doesnt shut it down you can always pull the power cord.
