    Thanks guys, I fixed it.. got it up 'n' running

    I don't exactly what I did but it seemed to work... I removed the hard drive and put it in a box and used it with my other computer and uninstalled the newest programs and then I put it back, it ran a disk check and voila it works

    I am having problems with keeping my comuter on as well and I think I am having the same problem. When I turn it on it seems to boot correctly, but after selecting my user name from the first screen it shuts off after 5-10 seconds. When I am in safe mode it stays on. I did a system restore (wiping everything) but it did not fix the problem. Also, my "O" key doesnt work unless I press very hard. Any suggestions?

    Thanks so much

Your OS is corrupted then if you cant get into safe mode. Your going to need to wipe out the hard drive and get your computer back to factory defaults. If you need help with that I'll be more then willing to help you.

Windows is set to restart on system failure by default, and the blue screen you see is known as BSOD (Blue screen of death), and it appears when any of numerous problems occur. Therefore if you're seeing the BSOD, you probably won't be able to boot to safe mode to try and recover either, but worth a try (tap the F8 key on boot and you'll get the "Safe Mode" boot option).
So, I would recommend booting to a Windows installation disk (you may have to edit BIOS settings to get your PC to boot to CD/DVD) and format the partition that your OS currently resides on and doing a clean installation of Windows. This is an almost sure fix, but not the only one. If you have data on your hard drive that you can't afford to lose then you could try a "Repair install", this can be attempted by pressing the "R" key when prompted by the installation to attempt a repair install.
If you don't have a OS installation disk, there is probably a recovery partition on the hard drive that you can restore your PC to it's original configuration. Let us know?

One of the function keys should get you into the boot menu, F9-F12, to manually select the CD/DVD drive. Pressing Esc or Tab on VAIO logo may display the right information to show which key to press.

Have you tried booting a standard Windows setup disc and checked if the hard disk is working ok?

My computer is dead?


With the old drive in the computer you should be able to do a recovery with the disks furnished with the computer when you got it.

What you have to do with the new disk installed is go into the BIOS and set the disk to AUTO, then srrow net to Boot and set the boot priority to CD as first boot. Then hit F10 or go toe EXIT and say YES. Then with your Windows disk in the ROM drive start the computer and when the window asks whether to BOOT from disk or CD ROM, hit any key and follow the instructions. Including format the disk when it asks.
Hope this helps. Bud
