Question about Sony VAIO Computers & Internet
My computer was frozen, so I force closed it and turned it back on. The computer won't finish booting. It is stuck in a loop. It gets to the Big Windows icon, you can hear it starting to boot, then it stops and goes to the beginning again where it asks you if you want to start in safe mode, normal, etc. I have tried starting it in all the different modes, and no luck. Any chance of ever getting that thing turned on so I can get a more recent back up of the files? I think I can reformat it like it came from factory, but then I would lose everything. Have not done that yet in hopes that I can recover files first. If I did set it to factory settings, and lost all the files, would I be able to use a data recovery program to retrieve them, or would that process wipe them out completely?
In extreme conditions you can use live widows which will be loaded in RAM not hard disk and on a few seconds U can backup your files. but before trying that choose the safe mode from the list you faced if it works, go to start menu- all programs-accessories- system tools- restore in order to restore to previous healthy condition. the other option is to booting the windows cd and follow the same pattern of new installation but when you face the screen containing windows which are already installed on your computer, choose repair.

SOURCE: Continuous start up loop
I fixed mine. I took the hard drive out and hooked it to my friend's computer with the intention of copying the files to his portable drive. I just attached one of the power harness plugs to the drive and plugged the blue harness to his computer's board. We started the computer. Before I could copy anything, the computer started scanning my drive. It deleted tons of corrupt files, did some other stuff, and then started recovering the files that were corrupt. The computer then started and I could see all of my files on the K: drive. The computer recognized my drive as K: and L:. I copied the files to the portable drive and then reinstalled my drive into my computer. I turned it on and it fired right up just like it used to. I was pretty amazed that my friend's computer fixed mine.

When your computer is rebooting, push the F8 key. It will change your start up options and you will see disable automatic reboot on system failure. You can they see the error and continue research on the problem.

This problem would arise only when the motherboard doesn't work properly. Check with your nearest gateway service center to get your CPU work again. That would be the only thing to be done.
