Re: xp wont start on sony vaio v94vq

Try booting into safe mode completely. Then shut down completely. Unplug for a couple minutes and plug back in and see if it will boot normally. If not, then go back to safe mode and use a restore point in XP. If that does not work then either XP is corrupted or the hard drive is going bad. You can try restoring your system with the restore discs. NOTE: This will erase all data, pictures, letters, financial info, etc. you have saved.
If that does not work then you can try replacing the hard drive.
Hope this helps!

I cannot get Ubuntu to load onto my Vaio PCV-RZ10. I have already partitioned the HDD with 30 Gig, loaded the OS (Ubuntu) I get a (Not Support) error message. Any ideas?

The problem is your computer is not compatable to run the Ubuntu operational system, it comes up not supported. But you can go online to forums that deal with these types of problems, because there are a lot of people out there that swear by this system.

The computer isn't giving you that message; it's coming from the monitor. It means the monitor is working properly but is not getting any signal from the computer. Your computer is not starting up for some reason. You'll need to find out what is keeping the computer from starting properly.

Sony Vaio PCV-RS710G wont start up

one of the files in the system32 directory in the windows folder is corrupt, the files in the system32 folder contains vital files for the boot procedure, try to start the machine in "safe mode" by pressing F8 after the sony boot screen, if it allows you into the operating system you will need to choose "system Restore" take the time back to at least a week before your problems started DO NOT CREATE A RESTORE POINT
