Question about Sony Vaio FZ31M Notebook

1 Answer

I have a sony vgn-fz31m. The laptop switches on but says windows failed to start. I have tried rebooting it with discs and opening in safe mode and all that happens is it completely freezes then a blue screen flashes up and the computer restarts. Tried this numerous times but nothing works. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

Black screen says multi(0) disk(0) rdisk(0) partition(2)\WINDOWS\system32


So far I see no problem. For some reason. you chose to boot Windows in safe mode. During that boot mode, the screen goes black and starts displaying lines of text detailling all the drivers it is loading. At the end of the process Windows will run in safe mode.
Try rebooting normally or rebooting to the last good configuration that worked.
If there are problems please be more specific.

When you first power on, is the text visible? Hit the F2 or F3 key to get into bios to see if the text is readable. If so, then you possibly have corrupted video drivers. If it's nothing is visible, check your video cables and video card. If you are able, try a different video card. If everything is visible, then boot into low res safe mode and reinstall your video drivers.

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.

Are you able to start the computer in safe mode?
Try starting the computer into safe mode by following the instructions found here.
If the computer loads in safe mode, then you can try disabling some startup programs by reading the instructions found here and restarting your computer. If this fails to fix it, you'll probably need to reinstall windows.
