Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RB42G PC Desktop

1 Answer

Windows starts to set up then screen goes black and

Windows stars to set up then screen goes black and -nothing. Have tried to start normally and to restore last good setting but same thing happens. Help!!! :( I have the same problem with my Sony Vaio PC VGC LA2. If I press the screen on/off button a couple of times, sometimes it will come up and stay on, would this be a power problem to the screen or a driver problem. Could you please advise. Thanks Mike

Sounds like you have a heating problem I need More information to help you, try pulling the side off the pc and blow off the cpu fan with compressed air for a computer store also blow out the monitor as best you can, next start up the computer but go into safe mode by pressing F8 before windows loads load without networking if it works there and does not turn off you have a driver problem after performing the first two suggestions if it stays on reboot hit F8 again before windows loads and click load in safe mode with networking then go to Microsoft's help page it's http://www.microsoft.safety.clean and run their cleaner if it detects a bug remove them then go to microsoft support and download the latest drivers next defrag the computer in safe mode then go to www.drivers.com and run scan for driver updates there it will give you a list of out of date drivers for your entire computer save the screen in word by using the ctrl V and ctrl p and then reboot normally and if windows stays on go to the driver site and down load all the latest drivers, next go to male-ware bytes and download their free trial software and run a scan on your computer. The latest virus has did ansi bombs with Delaware and worms and has killed your monitor drivers once you run the male-ware and remove the virus's and worms reboot to safe mode do disk cleanup and then do disk defrag in safe mode. good luck.

Place your windows cd/dvd in the tray and boot to the cd. When asked if you want to install windows, there will be a repair option further down towards teh bottom, or you will be asked to click R like before. The repair only works if the cd is in the tray.

Hello I wonder if you can help. When we switch


Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.

Black screen nothing loading


One of your driver is acting up. start in safe mode, disable one of the drivers (DVD or whatever) then close and try to start normally. If the PC starts then reinstall the driver.

My PC will only start and stay on in safe mode. When I start windows normally, it stays on for 5-10 mins then goes to a Black screen....WHY????


It may be going into sleep mode. When the screen goes black, try pressing the space bar on the keyboard to wake it up. If the computer wakes back up again, then you may need to adjust your power settings. Try it and let me know what happens.
