    No it does the same thing in safe mode. I thought it may be a video card driver problem. but I am not an expert.

    Are you using an onboard video or do you have a video card installed?

    Is it starting in "Safe Mode"? In the four corners you will see "Safe Mode". MM85

Baught a sony Vaio online but seller gave me the wrong personal password. I want to know if there is a way to bypass that? It is a Sony Vaio VGN-NR285E. Any Help will be greatly appreciated.

If it is a hard disk password, you will need to take it to a Sony repair shop or send it to Sony. If it is just a boot password, clearing the NVRAM should fix it.

I have sony note book model pcg 505x but i can not install windows through a usb port

first you must go in the bios page and enable booting from another devices (in your case usb port) if this type of computer have it enabled in bios page . second after you make this save changes to the bios exit and asure that you do not have any booting operating system in your peripherials (like hdd or cd-rom) till is coming usb port turn to boot, and vooila you are able to boot from usb port (if you have usb bootin driver or pen or else like this)
if your pc model bios dont have booting from another devices (or usb writen directly) sorry you are not able to boot from usb port. try to make a cd or dvd version and booting from cd or dvd device.
