Hi,

Looks like an issue with either display or system is overheating. Please try the below steps.

1. Shut down the computer
2. Keep on tapping F8 key as us press the Power button to turn on the computer.
3. Choose safe mode using the arrow keys on the keyboard and hit Enter Key
4. Stay on the safe mode to see if the screen is going blank, if not
5. A system restore should help to fix the issue. Let me know!

Thanks!

Remove printer drivers


You can check your laptop further by booting it from Safe Mode. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, try to tap continuously F8 function key on your keyboard immediately when you start your computer. It will lead you to an Advanced Menu from where you can choose the option "Safe Mode" and hit enter to boot your computer to safe mode. Now try to check the display driver in the device manager (Control Panel >System > Hardware >Device Manager) If it is not there, try to reduce the screen resolution and reboot your computer to the normal mode. If you are still getting the blank screen in Normal mode, try to boot computer back in Safe Mode and try to restore your computer to earlier time when it was working fine for you. To do so click on Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the "On this list, click a restore point" list, and then click Next. Now confirm the restoration and click on Next to complete the restoration and follow the wizard.
Cheers!

You boot files could be damaged. Try booting up in Safe mode. To boot in to Safe Mode. Press the F8 key while booting up and you will get a list of booting options. Choose the Safe mode. If you are able to boot up in Safe mode, then the next normal boot should solve the issue.

Sony vaio ns. my desktop is blank, im unable to use my laptop as i cannot see or open anything.


On the Windows Operating System you can boot up to safe mode by pressing f8 continuesly while booting until you get a menu that lets you go into safe mode. Go into Safe mode then it will give you the option to do a SYSTEM RESTORE. It will bring up a calendar and let you pick a earlier restore point where you didn't have that problem. It will not delete any programs so don't worry about that.

I hope this helps,

Safe mode boots okay but not in normal boot - no error either


Do you have the original recovery disk? I recommend inserting the recover disk, restart the computer while continually pressing F12. Select boot from CD, press any key when asked, and you would want to do a "repair". That should fix your problem.

Boots but to a blank screen just the pointer remains


Have you tried safe mode? You can access it by hitting F8 while the computer is booting up (I tend to press it at 1 second intervals, much faster and the computer gets annoyed :P) You'll get a menu that will let you pick safe mode.

If you can get at the desktop in safe mode then i would suggest shutting off all your start up programs (the list can be accessed by going to the start menu, selecting run, typing in "msconfig" and pressing enter). After those are shut off try rebooting back into normal mode and see if that works. If it does, then you know that a program starting up with the computer is causing the problem and just need to be singled out and removed.

Good luck :)

Its on but just has a blank screen ??


First see if it will boot in the Safe Mode, pressing F8 when the computer starts up. Choose Safe Mode in the boot option. If it will boot in the safe mode. Restart the computer and press F8 again and select Start in the last known configuration. Hopefully
this will fix the problem. If not and you are running XP Pro, boot in the safe mode and do a restore. you get there by clicking Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore, choose a date that the computer was working and click Restore.

Try "Safe Mode " by pressing F5 or F8 while booting, if you dont have hardware problem on hard disk or somewhere safe mode with take you to system without loading many drivers and startup programs.
