The issue may appear due to several reasons such as Windows Update or any recent hardware or software changes in the computer.

1. Please reset the BIOS to default values.

2. Try booting the computer to Windows in safe mode by pressing the F8 key at startup.
3. If the issue persists, please check if the hard drive is listed with its volume (size) eg: 500GB in the BIOS main menu. Press F2 key at startup to enter BIOS.
4. If the hard drive is listed, perform a system recovery using the recovery console/partition by pressing the F10 key at startup.
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1013184
5. If issue persists, please use the recovery discs or contact the sony service team to get the computer repaired.
The issue may be related to the operating system files. Getting the recovery partition re-imaged will be the best possible resolution.

When I boot my Dell D600 it get a blue screen and i am not able to log into my computer


In this case, we need to reset the computer back to factory settings.
here we go...this process will cause data loss.
1. Remove non-essential peripherals
like
a) Scanner
b) Printer
c) Modem or Network cables
d) Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)
e) USB flash drive or other external Hard Drive
f) Any other external devices (e.g., USB-attached devices)
g) Remove the computer from the docking station, if you are using one.
2. Turn on the computer.
3. When the Dell splash screen appears during the computer startup process, press and hold <Ctrl> and then press <F11>. Then, release both keys at the same time.
NOTE: Some systems like Inspiron Mini 9 (910) do not support System Restore as they do not have <F11> nor any substitute.
4. In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>.
5. When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, click Confirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.
The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.
When the restore process is complete, the following message will appear:
The system recovery process was successful.
6. Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
