How do i reboot my laptop


Restore to factory settings

Restoring your Sony VAIO computer to its original factory settings is a great way to remove old programs and files that are buried within your computer that you no longer need, or to get rid of a virus that you just can't seem to shake.


This process will allow you to start anew with your computer, and can potentially save you from simply throwing the computer away because you don't think it can handle the workload anymore and spending money on a new machine.


Unplug any cables connected to your Sony VAIO machine with the exception of the power cord and monitor.


Click "Start" in the lower left corner of your screen.

Click "Control Panel."


Click "Performance and Maintenance."


Scroll down to the bottom of the Performance and Maintenance screen and click "VAIO" recovery wizard. The VAIO Recovery Wizard dialogue box will appear.


Click "Next."


Select "Proceed with System Recovery" and click "Next."


Select "C Drive Recovery" and click "Next."


Click "Next" to confirm that you want to proceed with the C Drive Recovery.


Click "Finish" to restart your Sony VAIO machine and initiate the recovery procedure.

Upon restarting your computer, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will prepare your hard drive for recovery and then restart your computer again.


The necessary files will be copied to your computer and your hard drive will be recovered.


Click "Finish" when a screen appears telling you that your recovery process is complete.

Your computer will restart.


Click "Next" when you arrive at the Windows setup screen.

Follow the on-screen instructions to setup your version of Windows.


When you have finished setting up Windows, click "Finish."

Your computer will restart.

Upon restart, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will install necessary files on your computer.


Your computer will restart automatically when these files are installed and your Sony VAIO will be restored to its original factory settings.


Hope this helps

It really sounds like SP3 installing was coincidental.You're not getting to the point that Windows even starts,so it becomes a hardware issue.
Sometimes laptop batteries are hidden under panels and boards you remove to get at things below.
Since you've already taken the machine apart,try it again looking under everything you remove.Remember that laptops don't necessarily use the standard size desktop battery,they're usually smaller.
Make sure Everything is plugged back in when you put it back together.
Other than that,you could very well have a bad Ram stick,try using them one at a time in the bottom slot.
A CPU failure usually allows the POST screen.

Hi i have a sony vaio, if i restart it or switch it off on the power switch when it comes back on the screen is either black or dark, if i can catch the f8 to restart it again then hibernate it, when i...


unfortunately, when this happens on a sony vaio it is not fixable economically. there is a part inside that makes the screen backlit, and it is powered by another part that sits deep inside of the laptop and technicians like to steer away from this one.

I had a friend with a sony vaio and it was a nice older model from 1995 or so, and it had the same problem, but worse.

sorry.
