Sony vaio freezes at welcome screen

My sony vaio laptop can turn on and load up till it gets to the welcome screen. but then it freezes at that point. so i cant log onto my profile account or the guests. the mouse will still move on the screen though. a couple of days ago it has been a little slow at loading too.

    thanks for the prompt response. ill try it out today. i just hope nothing gets deleted off my hard drive...so many important documents. i was thinking if it could also be overheating. or maybe that a norton antivirus renewal software was automatically updated to my comp. ??????

Boot to safe mode by hitting the F8 key on boot. When in safe mode, go to a dos prompt and type MSCONFIG and hit the enter key.

In there, select DISABLE ALL near the bottom right and click on OK. You will receive a message that the system must be restarted. Restart it. If the system comes up, you will have a prompt that the system is using a modified boot. Just check off the check mark area and continue. You can then enter MSCONFIG and start enabling things until it locks up again and then you will know that, that is the program causing all the problems.

If that doesn't solve the problem, you may need to reload the OS.

Don't worry, hit Alt+Ctrl+Delete all three at the same time to bring up the Task Manager Windows. Then click File->rn-> type in explorer and click OK, the destop will come up. If it happes again for the next time, try to run some registry software to fix some dll, or registry file. VAIO sony is ****. I never buy Sony laptop any more.
Thanks,

This is a little off-topic, but I would advice you to regularly backup the important documents to an external hard-disk for example.
Also, this approach shouldn't normally do any damage to your computer...

Why does laptop cursor freeze and screen turn white?


Have you ever had the inside of the laptop cleaned out?

If not this needs to be done. If it has been a longtime, this needs to be done also.

What is the model number of the Sony VAIO?
Bottom of laptop.

PERHAPS I can find a Service Manual, and/or pictorial disassembly information. Then we will see if you wish to perform this procedure.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist. (Sorry Gort!)

After password wlecome then blue screen,need to hole power to do anything


Dear, you system's start up files are infected or disturbed. There is one way that can help.

1. start the system.
2. constantly press and release the F8 button to get system options and select the safe mode for start up.
3. if it starts up properly into the window, just restart your system.

if not then you need to re-install the operating system on your system, becuase such problems often occur due to the worms and virsus, and it may harm you further.

Best regards.

SONY VAIO notebook freezes on xp splash screen every 2-4 mos.


first, ensure your system restore is turned on and make a restore point right now!...assuming you have run a thorough disk check and de-frag. then, trust the system restore. I have used it with success 100% of the 20 or so times I have used it. Next, start using the "Hibernate" power down mode. I have found this to work wonders with third-party driver problems. It seems that once a good startup happens, then freeze it (and continue to get a good startup) with hibernate from then on. Last, check about every month for the quantity of restore points that have taken place automatically by Windows. Sometimes, depending on the size of the hard drive, too many points can begin to encroach on your free space that you want for virtual memory or data. So for example, I see 15 restore points in the last month, I will dlete them all by cancelling system restore. Then I use "clean disk" scandisk and defrag. Then I turn restore back on.
