After system recovery of my sony Vaio PCV-RS510, I did a Vaio updates and now computer will not boot. None of the buttons or keys working. Displaying "Sony" only.


If you have an install disc boot to it, restart your PC hold down F12 and select the CD/DVD Drive. If it boots to disc, go to the command prompt then run SFC /scannow. This will run the system file checker and repair your files as well.
