I would first check your battery, too make sure you are powering the laptop, and then AC adapter.
You could also be looking at RAM or a failing harddrive.
If all 4 are verified and working then you could be looking at a failing motherboard.
I would also try just loading into bios with minimal components. intil it crashes on you, then you know what component is failing.

Reinstall window 7 for sony vaio VGN-NR430E


Instead of trying to reinstall try a Repair. When windows boots up hit the F8 key and select the option you want.
Sometimes just going into SAFE mode and doing repair options (like anti virus and Malware scanning) can help.
Suggest Malwarebytes be installed on EVERY computer and do monthly scans.

My 8 year-old Sony Vaio PCV-V200G is very slow; I've heard of Registry & script problems. Also, My Norton AntiVirus protection constantly does background scanning. Could these be the reasons for slow...


Most likely yes. You should uninstall any software that comes by default with the manufacturer. Even better, reinstall your windows so you get all your setting clean.
Then just install window anti virus and you should be fine.

Only strts up with the power cord connected, but takes me to a window that makes me pick safe mode, go to the prior set up, o normal estart up tried all but gets me back to that window


It sounds like your battery has died on you. If you start it up and when you can see anything pull the power cord out. if it just dies on you then that is your problem. A replacement battery is $70-$150 depending on where you get it from. It pays to shop around online and even around town.

The rest of your errors should just be caused by windows not shutting down properlly. When you get your battery fixed it should go back into safe mode once more and then reboot properlly into normal windows.
It is possible that windows has become corrupted but not shutting down which means it would need to be reinstalled.

VGN-Tx750p does not start up


The Operating System may have got corrupted. In this case, you may reinstall Windows using the VAIO Recovery Wizard, provided you've not changed the factory installed Windows Operating System.

The VAIO Computer is shipped with the VAIO Recovery Wizard housed in a 5 GB of hidden partition on the pre-installed Hard Drive.

Restart the Computer and keep tapping the F10 key until the VAIO logo appears to access the VAIO Recovery Wizard.

Follow the steps given in the link below to use the VAIO Recovery Wizard to reinstall Windows, Drivers and all the pre-installed applications.

My sony vaio keeps turning off after boot.. thought at first a virus,, but i reinstall the xp sp2 and still the problem is again turning off by itself... sometimes windows would open and after a minute or...


The fan may be OK, but have you checked the Power supply it may be going out or weak. Also if the computer is heating up way to much that could also cause it.
