Question about Sony VAIO PCV-V210P PC Desktop
I've been running Windows XP on a Sony Vaio laptop for months without any difficulty whatsoever. Today I turned on my computer as normal and immediately got the following message: We apologize for inconvenience but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might cause this problem.
Your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders.
Choose last known configuration to reverse to the most recent setting that worked.
If a previous start-up attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset Button was pressed, or if you are not sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING
SAFE MODE WITH COMMAND PROMPT
LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION (YOUR MOST RECENT SETTING THAT WORKED)
START WINDOWS NORMALLY
Use up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice." Nothing works and my PC just restarts every time. I can not even get into safe mode. Can you tell me how to fix this?
Try booting XP with the installation CD & use the recovery console to boot the laptop.
From the Setup CD-ROM
Insert the Setup compact disc (CD) and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD.
When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. When prompted, type the Administrator password. At the system prompt, type Recovery Console commands; type help for a list of commands, or help commandname for help on a specific command.
To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit.
