Choose start windows in Safe mode, if it starts then everything will look big, don't worry about that for now. Then go to Start>accessories>system Tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that everything was working normally, when it has finished restoring the computer will restart. If asked choose start windows normally.

I hope this helps

    Does the computer make any beeping sounds when it starts, and if it does how many beeps do you hear?

    I was thinking that it could be dirty ram but that normally beeps three times on boot. It could be a windows fault and the windows may need repairing. Boot your computer press F2 to enter the bios settings and make sure that CDrom is selected as priorty boot insert your windows disk, restart the comptuer and select repair instead of install.

    If this is the first time that you have used it since your move and it was working fine before then, then it is possible that something has come loose inside the computer. Unplug the computer from the outlet and check to see if you have loose ram, graphics, or loose cables that are not connected properly to the hard drive etc....

Sony vaio wrong serial number


If you are trying to recover a key of an already installed program on your computer there are freeware keyfinders on the internet


http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/keyfinder-thing/3000-2094_4-10491989.html


Finding lost application install keys is quick and simple with this handy executable, a complete rewrite of a well-received earlier version.

Keyfinder Thing's simple, easy-to-understand interface has Wizard-like efficiency.


This application quickly scans your system registry for 90 supported software titles and displays product names and icons in the result window. Single-button clicks copy all keys to either a text or HTML file.


http://download.cnet.com/product-key-finder/3000-2094_4-10694022.html


Product Key Finder is a single function utility that executes in a GUI, but displays a Command window result. You merely double-click it to display the 25 character Microsoft Windows Product Key.

then store it away for safe keeping not on your computer


Hope this helps.

Power cable at rear of sony vaio pcv desktop sparking and not starting up


Stop using it. Bring it to a repair shop ASAP. You need your PSU replaced and if you keep using it you'll need your motherboard replaced as well. In fact if you keep using it you could burn all of your internal components out.

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!

Using the 2nd hard drive


Not without you saying what OS you're using, how you want to use it in applications, and how you wanted to attach it to the machine if it's not already installed.

  I mean, offhand I'd say if you have 2 free bays in there, to either use those or mount that drive (along with a generally identical one) in Zalman drive coolers in the case, connect them so you can use SCA RAID 0 on them, set that RAID up, format to XFS or another choice filesystem, and start using it then.
