Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook

1 Answer

Computer Crashed!!! Last night my computer crashed. As I attempted to restart it, I was able to get to the screen with the "Windows XP" logo but then it just restarted again. I don't know what happened. I can never get passed that screen. Everytime it gets there it, it just shuts down and attempts to restart again. My operating system is Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

Format it and start again,
hope you saved your important stuff ,
if not take your drive out and plug into another machine ,
now using the other machine to sort out your stuff for saving,
Save and then format the drive thru device manager .
Select the Drive from your computer while your in Device Manager.
Right click on your Drive (drop down appears)
A Quick format seems to take a short period off time.approx 10min(depends on hard drives size)and its ready for use straight away.
Plug it back into your original computer and it should be happy as again.lol
Hope this helps, let me know out come thanks

I have a Toshiba G15 laptop that crashed during system recovey ghosting. Now it will do nothing but black screen and flashing hyphen. Any clues on how to get this up and running So I can do system...


Hello, go into your BIOS, make sure the hard drive is selected to boot from. Then, look for a setting for factory reset, make sure it is also enabled. Then shut the computer off for 2 minutes. Now hold the zero button down and press Start, windows should load and then you should see the factory restore/reset window warning you that all data will be lost. Click YES, select Recovery of Factory Default, then follow the prompts to get windows installed. Hope this helps.

Second solution:

Restart windows if the Factory reset does not work. Before you see the BIOS or windows logo, press several times on F8 till you see a black screen with a few lines of information. Click Last Known Good Config and then Enter.

Last Solution:

Restart Windows, press F8 several times before you see any writing or logos, once you see the black screen with a few white lines of information, press Repair my windows. If you get the windows could not fix this problem, select try another method, it should take you to another screen, select US, then user name, put in password if you have one, then select Restore.

Good luck

My computer had some problems so i rebooted it but when the windows xp logo came in it suddenly stops and starts making weird noises. It also happened before i rebooted when i watch some videos online.


Sounds like your hard drive is crashing or has crashed. You will most likely need to get a new hard drive and reinstall Windows on it. I hope you have your important files backed-up.

Restarted computer and it will not start successfully. Error message provides options for restarting in 3 safe modes, last know configuration, or normally. Tried all options and each time, Windows screen...


If you have a recovery cd, use that. Set your bios to boot from cd.

Sounds like the hard drive has crashed and you may have to reformat it and reinstall the OS...or change it.

Dropped the laptop, now windows wont start, stays on windows logo screen.


Try running in safe mode.
If the computer was turned on while you were working then it is highly possible that hard disk might have crashed.

Tried to install update and computer crashed


A few ways to try and eliminate.
Upon startup F8 for safe mode: Last Know Configuraton

Hit F8 for safe mode. Go into accessories>system tools>system restore
Doesn't work then: need Windows CD setup. Let it run and hit R for Recovery Console. At the DOS prompt type FIXMBR or FIXBOOT.

My Compaq Presario V2000 will not start.


Ok, this makes sense. If this was a legit dvd, then it most likely had extra content on it (like wallpaper, sounds, etc) that installed something that crashed a driver.  If it wasn't legit, then the "player" that was used to play the movie installed something that crashed a driver.
If you can. I would reinstall some drivers to start.  Have you tried the "Last known good configuration" option?
Then if reinstalling drivers doesn't work, I would just restore the Windows OS.  But remember to BACKUP YOUR FILES.....once you restore it will be erased.
That compaq is a good machine unless you really want another PC this is fixable.

MY HP pavilion zt 1000 series just crashed


When reinstalling XP, install in a directory other than WINDOWS. Your My Documents will be safe, unless you have already overwritten it. Other data should be safe.DO NOT FORMAT THE DISK as the installation suggests.

Laptop crashed


Try this:
  1. Turn on the laptop
  2. Wait for the first page to go blank.
  3. Start to press the F8 key repeadly
  4. You should get a Windows Start" page pop up that gives options on how you want to start Windows.
  5. If you see the Windows Logo (the screen you normally see when Windows starts) screen then just restart the laptop again.
  6. Choose "Last known Good Configuration" and press Enter.
If that fails then please post back and we can try some other things.
