It should have said o/s not found or 
operating system not found . 

most likely cause is you hardrive has died , check you bios to see if it is picking up your hard drive if it is then it may be a case of your operating systems files being corrupted , but for this to happen you would have had to be using it at some point in your travels .if this is the case the you would need to re install your o/s .

and if the bios is not picking up your hard drive then you need to get a new one fit it and then re install your o/s on the harddrive

Sony vaio laptop half screen black on the right


Sony Vaio is one of the most prominent brands of laptops on the market, and also one of the most expensive. The laptops, created by Sony, are known for their efficient processor functionality and sleek designs. While the Sony Vaio line of laptops are considered high-end, they are also prone to display problems.

Symptoms
Among the problems facing Sony Vaio laptop screens are blackouts. When these blackouts occur, the monitor turns solid black, and upon rebooting the laptop, light will briefly flash on only to blackout again. Additionally, there have been reports of an issue which causes the screen to flicker intermittently until it goes out all together. b> Troubleshooting b> Blackout displays and the continuous flickering of Sony Vaio screens can be caused by various issues taking place inside the laptop. It is not necessarily true that the problem lies within the LCD screen itself, with display issues often occurring as a result of problems with other parts of the laptop. You can test whether or not the screen is defective by connecting the laptop to an external monitor. If the display comes up normally, then the problem lies within the laptop's LCD screen. b> Parts b> If your Sony Vaio is connected to an external monitor and suddenly goes black, then the problem may have to do with the laptop's sleep button. The sleep button latch located inside the device may be jammed or broken, thus putting the screen in a permanent sleep mode until the latch is fixed. Encountering hissing sounds when the laptop is running indicates a faulty circuit board, usually damaged due to overheating. Display issues can also occur when certain parts of the laptop, such as the hard drive, have been replaced. b> Design b> Some owners have made complaints about Sony Vaio design flaws, specifically mentioning defects in the laptop's boards. Among the problems discovered after opening the laptop include burnt LCD fuses, as well as worn out circuits and internal latches. Some of these events may occur even in newly purchased units. Sony has not yet responded to various consumer complaints and has not yet issued any recalls in response to reported problems. b> Repair b> When repairing a defective Sony Vaio laptop screen, it is important that owners remain aware of the nine screws which hold the laptop cover and the board together. Not doing so can easily lead to further damage to the Vaio due to static electricity, and may even lead to a short circuit. For owners who are experienced in the area of laptop repair, parts are readily available for purchase, allowing for cost efficient repair. b> Extended desktop You will need to connect to another monitor or your television to your computer with the vga lead monitor connection. Click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system You should see a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes. or Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to monitors right click select scan for hardware changes if you can get an extended desktop your monitor is faulty if you cant get an exended desktop Hope this helps.

SCREEN DISPLAY VAIO ONLY


Press Fn+F7 to switch displays You can do it 2 times to see if it activates.
Use Fn+F5 to activate to see if u need to turn the brightness up. Then Right key.
if that didnt work turn your computer off and disconnect every thing turn it back on and tap your F8 to get in safe mode.
You can go here to see if you need updates...which maybe u already have done.

I have windows 7 and a pretty stock sony vaio VPCEH12FXB laptop and for some reason my webcam wont work. whenever i try to open it or use oovoo it just tells me that my webcam is either not connected or in...


If your webcam worked before this problem then you probably have a hardware issue. The webcam is installed on your LCD display panel. This is connected to the system board via a cable. It's possible the cable became dislodged from the webcam or the system board due to opening the LCD display to use the laptop.
Go to device manager to see if the webcam appears in list of devices. If not then
you will need to have the laptop repaired by Sony or competent repair shop.
