Question about Sony Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Desktop Computer won't start up.

I have an 8 year old Sony Vaio desktop operating Windows XP. I usually leave it running but shut it down yesterday morning after running AdAware. Now when I turn it on it seems to be going through the start up process until it comes to a screen which says it had problems and asks me to select whether to start up in ''Safe Mode'' or to start normally. No matter what I select, it reboots itself and starts all over again. I can't get Windows to start. Any suggestions?

Mine has crashed. So has yours. It has crashed. You must try to boot it with a boot disc made for the operating system. As its 8 years old the manufacturer wont sell you a boot disk but you can buy a boot disk for the correct version ofwindows

Download the SP3 installation ISO. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

Sony Vaio desktop will not load windows


what your describing is a hard disk failure the computer cant or wont read the hard disk to boot the machine, so it shuts down. Sounds like the hard disk died from a bad virus. and the computer wont run. Best I can do for you is either format the Hard disk and reinstall the operating system or buy a new hard disk. Cheers

Adam,

The sony VAIO Pcv-j200 only runs with Windows 2000, windows Me and windows xp. The current operating system Vista on your computer right now will work but some of the features of it may not. The link below shows all the drivers for your unit for diffent operating systems (not vista). What you can try to do is to download the audio driver for windows xp

An infection could cause the issues your having. I recommend letting a professional help you clean your system. Removing infections is very dangerous and risky. They can cause data loss and you risk making the system worse. I recommend NickLockard.com
