Try backing up your data on a flash drive and then restore your laptop back to factory defaults.

Sony vaio lcd screen turns black after start up


graphics card software fault. start the pc and get it to bring up the start menu where you see options such as safe mode,usually holding down f8 when you boot. (If all else fails whilst windows is loading hold down your power button to power it off then it should automatically ask you what to do.)
select restore to known good configuration.
If that does cure it boot to safe mode and do a system roll back (restore) to an earlier time when it did work
If that doesn't work, also in safe mode you can try removing the graphics card drivers and forcing it to load windows default drivers. then update from the website.
If nothing works, not even safe mode then you'll need to use your windows disks or recovery discs. If you fear losing everything then try downloading and burning a ubuntu live disc on another PC and use that to load your laptop then copy and back up your files to another drive or usb stick using the ubuntu operating system.

My sony vaio VGN-CS22GH laptop shuts doen by itself randomly. Please help


The issue may be due to any recent hardwrae or software changes and also due to any virus.
1. Remove any recently added hardware/software.
2. Try to boot the computer in safe mode. Press F8 button soon after restarting the computer to enter the advance boot option and select safe mode to boot computer in safe mode.
3. If issue persists even in safe mode, perform a system restore to an earlier time or date when the computer was working as expected. Performing system restore will not delete any data from the computer.
4. Reset BIOS to default values. (Press the F2 key after restarting the computer to enter and access BIOS).
5. Press F3 and F4 keys to reset the BIOS. or press the right arrow key until you reach the exit menu, then select the load BIOS default option.
6. Then, select the Yes option when promted, save the settings and select yes option. restart computer and check.
7. If still persists, perform a system recovery using the VAIO Care Software or the F10 recovery partition.
Note: ensure to backup any important data before perfoming system recovery. System recovery will erase all the data presnt in the computer.

Won't boot up,black screen says operating system not found.


well its tough to say, could be a harsh virus, or damaged registry. Try starting it up and as soon as it starts press f8 repeatedly until the safe mode menu is prompted, then from there pick a the option that best suits you, either safe mode or safe mode with networking. In just regular safe mode you can go in and remove harmful data from your hard drive. Maybe running under last know configuration might help. Let me know what happens.

I have sony vaio VGN-AX580G-when I turn it on, it says it failed load windows. Im then given the otion to choose safe mode, safe mode with networking, or safe mode with command prompt. All three take me...


If you have the recovery disk(s) shut the computer off and boot from the cd. Try repairing the installation first. You may need to re-install Windows, meaning any data on the machine will be lost. Good luck.

Can't restore factory intallations and settings: Vaio VGN-FE880E


Are you doing DESTRUCTIVE recoveries or are you doing NONDESTRUCTIVE recoveries? Try another hard drive in the machine and recover to that. Nondestructive recoveries replace the operating system without destroying the personal data. Its possible the original problem is propagating over to the recovered systems. Do a destructive recovery. Understand any data not backed up will be destroyed. Possible the original problem was a trojan virus.

Xp wont start on sony vaio v94vq


Try booting into safe mode completely. Then shut down completely. Unplug for a couple minutes and plug back in and see if it will boot normally. If not, then go back to safe mode and use a restore point in XP. If that does not work then either XP is corrupted or the hard drive is going bad. You can try restoring your system with the restore discs. NOTE: This will erase all data, pictures, letters, financial info, etc. you have saved.
If that does not work then you can try replacing the hard drive.
Hope this helps!
