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

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.

Crashed hard drive on emachines T5026


Pardon me, but NO! The statement, "two things are responsible for booting up computer RAM and Hard Drive" is simply not true.

A hard drive crash COULD cause the symptoms you describe, but that is more indicative of a virus infection. When you say the XP reinstallation disk would not start it exactly how did you use that disk? Attempt to use the repair console? Boot directly from the disk? Attempt reinstallation of the whole operating system? If you attempted reinstallation, do you also have the specific drivers for all of the components E-Machines used when they built your computer (you will need at least some of them.)

Post again with some more details about how you used the reinstallation disk.

Emachine W6409 will no longer turn on


Your hard drive is probably crashing or has crashed. You need to start your computer with an XP CD and try to use the repair function. You'll be able to tell if the hard drive is still working or not once you run the repair function. Let me know what happens or if you run into any problems.

Windows XP Home Edition Crashed After Loading Service Pack 2


hey coco

nothing happens when you try to use the recovery console right by pressing "r".

try this again and again , sometimes it idles but its still running, if the error appears, restat again.

some corruptions maybe beyond our control and sometimes the only solution for this is to recover the inportant files you have on that HD and do a reformat...

Windows XP Home Edition on HP Pavilion a367c


Are you able to successfully enter Safe Mode? Are you getting a brief blue screen before the computer restarts?

A possible solution (if you can't get into Safe Mode to further diagnose the issue) is to repair the Windows installation with a Windows XP Home CD. If you know someone with such a disk you can use that with the product key that should be on a sticker on the back of your computer. Otherwise, HP should be able to send you an XP CD since you have an authorized copy of Windows on your computer.

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.

Compaq presario 2100 fan does not work...


Ok, first off i have a feeling that reinstalling xp had nothing to do with your fan. Locate the fan vents on the side or back of your notebook. Buy a can of compressed air and spray out the vents. My guess is you have plenty of dust. After that boot the computer and enter the bios menu. Look for where it displays your temperature. Leave it running like this overnight. If its still on, check the temperature. If its above 70 C you have a bad fan, the same holds true if it doesn't last the night.
