Most likely a hard drive problem but could be a number of things. Try pressing tab or escape when it freezes and see if the screen switches and gives more information. If you are able, remove the hard drive and try booting again. (the cd/dvd drive could also cause this so try removing that if possible)

Hi, i have a Sony vaio and it was working fine until I shut it down overnight, the next morning I tried to turn it on which started out fine but as soon as the windows emblem started loading, it didn't...


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
Also you might try
Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
hope this helps
