Please backup the data by logging in to Safe Mode, please restart and start pressing F8 key to select Safe Mode then re-install the Windows 7 Operating System using the Recovery Disc or recovery Partition of the Hard Drive. The Recovery Partition can be accessed by restarting the computer and try pressing F10 Key. The Windows XP Operating System is displaying an error because it does not have SATA Driver to detect the Hard Drive. As Windows 7 has it, you can re-install it from recovery partition.

Try these 1) Shut down the system 2) Remove the battery 3) Hold down the power button for say 2 minutes 4)Put the battery back 5) Boot the system
If you still hit the black screen with a cursor: 1) Wait for 2 mins at the black screen 2) Just type in your windows password (if you don't have one hit enter) and press enter 3) Wait for another 2-3 mins 4) Hit Alt Ctrl Delete and go to task manager (this time it should take you to the task manager) - fingers crossed LOL 5) Now do new task - explorer.exe
Hopefully you should be back in action.
Note, this is a work around and for a permanent fix either try and clean your system (check for viruses) or reinstall the system. Hope this helps.

My mouse pointer keeps making my page zoom in and out and then goes and sticks so i cant move it


This appears to be caused by a malfunction of the mouse (device or connection), or a stuck key(s) on your keyboard. First try to replace the mouse (device) with another one to see if this still happens, and/or the keyboard (by using an external keyboard), to find out what component is causing the problem.

Trouble when typing on the keyboard on my sony vaio


Keep the palms of your hands away from the "touchpad" -- you're accidentally moving the mouse-pointer as your fingers press on the keys.

Wireless mouse locks up


I would suggest investing in a USB mouse. They never have this problem and are very cheap to buy. I have found that wireless mice are prone to problems. I would say there is a problem in the connection between your mouse and the laptop but this sort of problem is quite hard to find. As I said, you are better off with USB mouse.

When im working sometime my system is hanged. even mouse pointer cannot move. is there anything hardware pblm or software pblm


I think you have opened many applications at once. by doing this, each application you opened uses memory. if you have opened many applications at once, you consume more memory. To solve this, you either open one application at a time or buy and add memory card for your pc.
