Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K23 Notebook
I left my computer in standby mode and when I returned, the screen was black. I had to turn it off and turn it back on. Upon restarting, it said Windows did not shut down properly and gave me options on how to start (regularly, safe mode). I tried regularly and it took me to a black screen. I had to turm off the computer and turn itt back on again. This time I tried safe mode. It ran through a list of files in what looked like a dos mode, and then it went to a black screen that just said safe mode in all 4 corners and in the top middle said "Microsoft Windows (Build 6001:Service Pack 1). I tried this several times with the same result each time. I tried rebooting and holding down the Windows Key and R key: nothing different happened. I tried rebooting and holding down the F2, F12, F8 keys (separately) and nothing happened. Have I lost everything on my computer? These VAIO's do not come with any type of recovery disks. Please help.
During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.
If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.
If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".
