Sony vaio not loading windows


Question
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

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 help?

Reinstall the OS ! Just overrite it over the previouse xp so u won;t lose data ...

..most probably u are missing some files ... .. or u have virusez issues. Ofecourse there is the posibility of hardware mallfunction, but considering microsofts reputation ... probably thats not the issue ...

I can not turn on my Sony Vaio laptop. when I press the on botton it shows vaio and windows xp as if its starting then it keeps on doing same procedure without turning on to windows xp for use! Thanx.


use a windows setup disc and check for problems on your installation, it sounds as if a driver update is causing the laptop to crash , hence why windows is not starting. Have you tried entering safe mode? Are you able to start windows this way?

Sony vaio not loading windos


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.

Sony Vaio sound...


Adam,

The sony VAIO Pcv-j200 only runs with Windows 2000, windows Me and windows xp. The current operating system Vista on your computer right now will work but some of the features of it may not. The link below shows all the drivers for your unit for diffent operating systems (not vista). What you can try to do is to download the audio driver for windows xp
