Your laptop may need defragmenting. It is possible for everything to lock up if the hard drive is too badly fragmented.

Try starting up in safe mode. Press F8 shortly after switching on then select start in safe mode.

The defragmenter is in the START MENU / PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / SYSTEM TOOLS.

Select defragment.

It may take a few minutes to a few hours.

It is necessary to regularly defragment (two or three times a week), many people aren't aware that the operating system will definately slow down or crash if you dont.

Hope this helps.

I have a problem with BOTH my Windows 7 laptops that I have never had with any previous OS. Whenever I move the pointer the screen scrolls uncontrollably (usually downwards) the arrows will not move it...


this is normal and that is why XP is so more popular than ever before
If you look at XP Home edition selling on Ebay they are still selling for $100 and they outsell Winfdows 7 10 to 1

Try start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

Sony Vaio Laptop boots but no display except mouse pointer


It could be the hard drive going bad but it also could be a virus. I would formatt & do a clean OS install.

Screen blank. only pointer shows


It sounds like damaged OS or registry. You need to restore the operating system. Try F8 at reboot and select "Safe Mode".

Cant see anything on my sony vaio pcg-72dl screen its just blank


Your backlighting may be out.

Try shining a flashlight onto the screen with the lights off in the room.

If you can vaguely see your desktop on the screen, then your backlighting is out.

Let me know if this works,
Simon.

Screen draging


here's my guess =)

maybe you have the mouse pointer option set to Display pointer trails? if this is the case... this is the solution.
  • go to control panel: START > SETTINGS > CONTROL PANEL
  • select mouse
  • go to Pointer Options
  • look for Visibility section
  • uncheck Display pointer trails
