Question about Sony VAIO VPCF134FX/B F Series Notebook

1 Answer

Sony vaio vpcf1 does not boot up and keeps restarting

I let the laptop sit for mutiple weeks and tried starting it up again today. it completely booted up for 15 minutes today and worked perfectly, then shut down in the same fashion. when it restarts it makes a single beep or whistle and the green light in the power button stays on. when i turn it on now it pulls up the first vaio screen where you can hit f12 then shuts off. sorry for the scattered thoughts, trying to be thorough. i originally thought it was the motherboard but idk how it would be if it started up today. the motherboard was replaced by sony a year ago for unknown damages.

    Can you do a system restore or a system recovery? Sounds like a hardware issue.

  • joshua miller Oct 31, 2012

    no the disk will not read. i would agree that it is a hardware issue, but it has me puzzled that it did start up for a short time.

    A bad PSU maybe. I replaced a PSU in a desktop that had the same symptoms, it would get to pre-boot and die over and over. good luck

    Jay, What would say PSU? I had a similar issue on a Desktop PC, Boot to Pre- boot screen and quit , repeat same result. I replaced the PSU and solved the problem. That's a good starting point wouldn't you say?

Take the battery and power supply out and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset your hardware settings. Your backup battery isnt your problem. Does your battery light turn on when charging? Does your keyboard lights light up when it runs for a second (try pressing caps lock)?

Whean windows open,they was stock,freaze,i try reinstal windows and when deleting files stop responding on 7% about,i did restart,after restart screan going totaly black,.Any body help please: lap top Sony...


Hi,
I think your laptop is now really messed up and you will need to restore to factoy settings.
I hope you created the Recovery CD/DVD set with the Recovery Wizard when you
first set up your computer, you can restore to factory default settings by
setting up your BIOS (press F2 at the VAIO logo when you first start up) to
boot to the CD-ROM/DVD drive first. Then boot with the Recovery Startup CD.
Choose the option to perform a complete recovery

Follow the prompts to insert the various Recovery CDs/DVDs as needed.
As this action will format the drives again, I hope you have made a backup of your data.

If you failed to create the Recovery CD/DVD set you need to
purchase a proper recovery set from Sony.

My Sony Vaio laptop wouldn't start - it will not boot. it's stuck on restart again, not logo. nothing - I had the hard and soft drive checked and the memeroy boards, all sony parts. but it will not display...


Your operating system may be corrupt. Please try the following:

Try hitting the F8 key repetedly at boot to see if it goes into the preboot menu. If so, choose last known good config and try booting again. If not, you may want to grab your restore disk and perform a windows repair. Insert the CD in your drive and boot to it. Choose the option to repair your windows installation. This will fix windows without destroying your data

As you boot up press the F8 function key, you will then be able to select Last Known Good Configuration, if you are lucky Windows wil start up OK.
If not shutdown and restart again and press F8 again, this time select Safe Mode, this time if Windows starts up the screen resolution will be standard VGA mode. You will then be able to work out what is wrong.
If this doesn't work you will need to boot up with the Windows CD and do a system repair.
If this dosn't work you will need to do a complete reinstall of Windows plus the device drivers and all your software programs. Note - you will lose your data in this process.
