When you say the computer won't boot--what do you mean? Does it actually start and then you get a black or blue or white screen? Does it do nothing at all? Can you boot from a CD? Do you have a restore CD?
1) If you have a factory boot CD, put it in and boot from that.
2) If your computer won't boot into Windows, boot into safe mode
3) If you just can't start Windows at all, try #1--and maybe you can choose "repair" and run chkdsk.
4) If all of the above fail, click on my profile and choose "ask me" and we'll look at other options

Go to the manufacturer's website and download the driver for the monitor and it should restore the functionality. Also go to the Sony website and download any video drivers for your PC.

I am not familiar with that particular laptop but generally when any computer is booting up, before Windows starts, you can press a key (usually F2 or F12 or ESC or DEL) and go into the BIOS (built in operating system) and there usually is a setting there to restore defaults.
