    I can't even access where to start windows in "Safe Mode" Is their certain bottons to hold down to get access since this just continues to boot up and shuts down all with a black screen. A blue screen pops up but onlyfor 2 secs.

    I held the delete key through the boot up process and nothing happened. I did press the F8 buttom and that told me that I had some missing files. I will go home tonight and look for the recovery/boot disk. Thanks for all the help. I'll let you know if I find my disk

    Have you tried holding down the " F8 " key in the top row on your keyboard, while it is trying to restart? If that won't work, try holding down the " Delete " key while it reboots, this should give you some boot options.

    Just in case your not sure how to start in safe mode, there are slight differences between operating systems but all require pressing the F8 key.

If non of these things are working for you, there is another option, your computer should have come with a recovery/boot disk. Get that disk into your cd rom drive and force the computer to boot from the cd. Just hold down the " C " key while rebooting to force boot from cd.

I just had to do this this morning. And now i am talking to you on my vaio. Start windows in safe mode and open the "run" box from the start menu. In the run box type msconfig. When the window pops up click on the startup tab and un-check any of the programs you do not need to start with windows. Let me know if this works for you or just if you need more help

    if you are running xp try pressing the F10 button. That is what it requires on my computer. Reguardless you will need to boot into safe mode to fix this problem if the boot disk does not work

    Today When i got into the office my laptop started doing the same thing again. When i finally got to look at the Blue Screen Of Death it came up as a cpu error or a cpu controller error. I know for mine the only thing i can do is replace the computer. Unless i want to install windows every couple of days.(No thanks)

My sony vaio CR VGN-CR35G/R has reboot problem it gets hanged every time while rebooting.


Hi,

If your laptop has a Microsoft Windows operating system you can do the following.
  1. Boot up the computer
  2. Press the F8 key evey few seconds until you see a screen with options.
  3. Once you see the screen select the option which says "Last Known Good Configuration"
This will start up your laptop as it was the last time you manages to log in ok or your laptop started ok.

Please note that any drivers/software etc that you may have installed before the problem began may not work.

I hope this helps,
John

Hi. Restart you pc then when it booting up on the dark screen before windows it will tell on on the bottom of the screen either F10 or F11 will take you to the full restore of the computer. Try rebooting and you see the message but one for about 2-3 seconds.

No use of sony reboot disk in your problem.

Your RAM has gone faulty now thats why its rebooting again & again.

Hi,

Holding zero is the method for restoring Toshiba computers. Sony Vaio should use F10. From there you can do a full system restore to factory defaults.

Hope that helps :)

Hi try taking the drive out of the laptop,you may have to unscrew some screws under the drive first .Make sure you have the laptop turned off when doing this.When you have the drive out put it back in firmly then put the screws back in.This may sound stupid but sometimes this is all it takes.

PowerPoint and Projector (InFocus LP640) Incompatability


I am unsure of this from your post, but don't try to hook the projector up to the laptop while either one of them is on. Power both the laptop and the projector off, hook up the projector to the laptop, then power on the projector first then the laptop. If you are already doing this, I apologize for stating the obvious.
