    Now it says that System32\Drivers\ntfs.sys is missing or corrupt. Its asking for original Windows setup CD. Not only do I not have the CD but I know my friend (the owner of PC) does not have it either. What do you suggest?

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.

I have a Sony Vaio VGC-LS25E All-in-one PC. When I power it on, nothing happens, the display is blank and there are no normal boot up sounds. Yesterday, it beeped 3-4 times when turned on, but it is not...


Amazing. I have the same computer and the same thing just happened to me. The computer works and if I press the sleep button I can see the screen for about 4 seconds.
