Hi, I have the above note book and recently installed Kaspersky Antivirus. The system worked fine before that. Now it wont boot up into windowsXP. It continuously does a reboot. Have tried changing the the boot-up device but have had no success. I do not have a portable CD drive. Is there any way I can boot up from a usb flash disk? HELP PLEASE!!
It is actually a sony pcg-u3??? if you press F8 and go into safe mode and then do a disk repair this will solve the problem for you, also if you have got a cd drive then mount the winxp image to a memory stick duo and use disk repair from that...

Re: Continuous Boot up - sony vaio PCG-1C1N
If it won't boot that is a problem, meaning you might not be able to go on your computer and unistall the antivirus, or XP altogether.If it does boot, dont reboot it and do what i said and uninstall the antivirus and install a more relieble one, or just go with windows defender.

Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.
First, try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).
If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.
If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.
If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.
