Question about Sony VAIO VGC-V617G PC Desktop

3 Answers

Black Screen Hi, I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V617G and my computer won't seem to get out of the black-screen mode. I turned off and then turned on the computer and everything seems to be functioning ( I can hear it running), but it never exits the black screen mode. What is unusual is that when it is starting up the normal sign VAIO flashes (white) on the screen and then returns back to the black screen. Please help!

    My computer is built into my monitor LCD

    Yes, I have the same problem with my Sony VAIO VGC-VA10G desktop. These computers DO NOT accept an external monitor. See picture at the top of this page. . .the Monitor IS all there is except for a very small box containing the operating system located just below the monitor.

    My computer is definitely running inside there. . .but without being able to access it via the Monitor, I may as well be trying to access the computer next door.

DISPLAY HAS POBABLY WENT BAD.

BUT THE WAY TO MAKE SURE IS TO CONNECT YOUR COMPUTER TO A DIFFERENT MONITOR TO SEE IF YOU GET THE SAME RESULT

Whoa. I'm not sure why, but this just worked. As soon as I hit F2 repeatedly, the machine restarted without a problem. Woooohooooo!

Actually, I called sony and I'm so glad they helped me out. Here's the procedure.

1. When the computer restarts, press f2 repeatedly.
2. On the bios setup, select exit
3. On exit screen, select Load default values
4. Hit enter
5. Save and Exit.

    I tried the above and I either get a three step scan of my hard drive and then a black screen or I get a resuming windows message but it just goes back to black screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do you remove a hard drive on a Sony Vaio VGC-V617G? Thank you


The hard drive is located in the rear of the base. Remove the black plastic cover. Just look for the black screws holding it in then pull it back and up. The hard drive is held in place by four screws on the back side. Some components in this PC are for laptops however the hard drive is a standard PC size and connections.

My logo comes up then the intel logo and a small white line then the screen goes black and nothing else will load. Is there something I can try?


Try loading in "SafeMode" when you cut on computer, tap F8, a screen will pop up with a bunch of ways to start the computer, arrow to "Safe Mode" and press enter, If it boots now you probably have a virus. If you have a antivirus program run it.

My sony vaio makes a beeping sound one long and to short beeps and it wont turn on


One long beep and two short beeps usually means a video problem. If you have an add-on video card, try replacing it with a new one. If you are using an on-board video, go into the bios and turn it off. then shut down & install an add-on card.

Look in the back of the Gateway where you currently have the video cable connected. If there are two connectors, (Side by Side) there than disconnect & re-connect to the other. Your display should come up. Don't be fooled. Most Pc's that have no display on their monitor is not a monitor problem but a computer problem.
