    I have the same problem on model VGC-LS25E. Only a little over a year old ... just after the warranty ran out :(

    Any new advice?

    I have the same problem. Each time I boot the PC it goes through its normal process but the screen is all white, with the exception of a couple flashes to all black for brief periods during the boot up process.

Plug in an external monitor and use the F key with the FN to toggle between lcd and external monitor. On my laptops It is the FN and F5. If the external monitor works the problem is the the inverter board, the flex ribbon cable or the LCD. If the external monitor is also messed up then the problem is probably the video card/ motherboard.

Sony Vaio VGC-RC024 will not boot up

Try when system is booting up, press F8 to come into boot choices.
Select last known good configuration.
select OS
if it still hangs try F8 again on boot and go into safe mode,

If neither way works the master boot record may be corrupt or viruses may be preventing boot up.
