Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RX540 PC Desktop

1 Answer

When attempting to start my desktop computer (sony vaio pcv-rx540), I got the 'we apoligize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully...' error message. From doing a little research I'm told that I can fix this error, but first I need to produce the xp setup disc, which I do not have. What I do have are the 3 sony system recovery discs (cds). I would like to know if this is the correct course of action, and more information on restoring windows.

Try starting it in safe mode(f8 while starting up and restore from there), if not you might have to boot from the recovery cd, and last but not least reinstall windows

You can try restarting your laptop and then hitting F8 repeatedly and then choose LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.If this doesn't fix the issue then you will have to go for a recovery.This is the only way to fix the issue.
