Question about Computers & Internet
My Sony Vaio Laptop just shows a black screen with a small flashing cursor in the top right corner whenever I switch on and try to boot up. It doesn't do anything else even if I leave it on for several minutes. I was recently defragmenting the hard disk and it locked up for hours after which I had to switch it off and it's been like this since. I believe that I need to get hold of a Sony recovery disk but I can't seem to find one on the Internet. Can anyone tell me where I might be able to either download one or buy one please? Thanks - Johnny
If your BIOS loads properly you have some display in your screen like text. But when you turn on and nothing readable on the display then you have problem in the BIOS. Try to flush updated bios in sony website. Recovery disk is only applicable if the system will display "Cannot find boot disk" or bios is properly loaded before you can boot from CD. If you wish you can boot it with Norton Ghost 12 Recovery Disk.
