Question about Sony VAIO VGC-V517G PC Desktop
Hard drive started making a clicking noise a week ago and now it will not boot into windows. I have tried going into safe mode but "blue screen" flashes and the machine restarts. Ours started clicking too. Once it was clicking, all we got was a black screen. For a year or so, we manually turned off the computer, waited a few hours and it eventually resolved itself and booted normally. This last time, it didn't. We took it to geek squad and they referred us to a nearby repair shop. Now the repair shop is stumped. They evidently tried replacing the video card to no avail. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong?
Do you see anything when you press the on button?
if not, it might be the motherboard, which means the most important part of the computer is broken and it has to be replaced (the motherboard that is, but i warn you, OEM versions of windows might not work anymore) if you see something until windows should start just replace the harddrive
