My computer screen turns blue and restarts window vista


Hi jjlishus,

I see you mentioned that you are having issues with you computer going into a blue screen then it restarts.

You can try to boot into safe mode to see if Windows Vista will Load without having the bluescreen and if it will not shut down or restart, from Safe Mode, try and do a system restore to a data where the problem has not happened yet.

From there-on see if the issue will still happen or no

Getting into Safemode:
restart PC keep on tapping F8 on your Keyboard this will prompt you options, Look for Safemode then press enter this should bring up the safemode screen.

If during the loading of safemode and still happens are any error show up or it goes to a blue screen, you can try going into safemode with command prompt.
to get to safemode in command prompt just do the same as ging into safemode and select safemode in command prompt.

once in the command prompt
Type CHKDSK , then press enter it should check the system for 5 mins or so depending on your PC/Laptops speed.

if still the issue is the same reformatting or restoring your windows back to defaults may fix the issue.

I hope that this will help,

Windows will not load stuck on welcom screen any help with this? Please and thank you


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
If you are having this kind of problem, follow the steps below:
1)Turn off the computer completely.
2)Unplug the charger from the laptop and remove the battery.
3)Press and hold down the power button for 5-10secs. (this will drain the remaining static charges inside the computer)
4)put in back the battery and plug the charger back.
5)Try now to turn on the computer and see if you will be able to pass the Windows Welcome screen.
6)If still no go, turn off the computer again.
7)Try to boot into safemode. (Turn on computer and once you press the power button, keep on tapping on F8.. You should see a screen that has Windows Advanced Boot Options. It has different options like safemode, safemode with networking, etc.)
8)Using the arrow keys, select Safemode. You should be able to login into Windows in Safemode. You might notice that the resolution is different. Don't panic, that's normal.
9)Once you are in safemode, access the System Configuration Utility tool. Open the link to know how to access it. http://vlaurie.com/computers2/Articles/msconfig.htm
10)Once you have accessed msconfig, click on the startup tab>then click on Disable all>click on apply.
11)Click on the Services tab>put a check on the box that says, Hide Microsoft services>Click disable all>click on apply and OK.
12)it will now prompt you with a restart. Restart the computer. and it will now boot back to normal mode.
13)You should be able now to access Windows. If it is successful, there are just some startup items or services that are having conflicts while Windows is trying to load up.
If you are not able to access safemode either, pretty much you have a bad hard drive or Windows could be corrupted. Try first reinstalling Windows on you computer.
Hope this could be a big help.

Need to know what key is for safemode. computer is not coming on and is stuck in set up is starting services.


Tapping F8 during the initial boot will get you to the menu to choose Safemode, Last know good Config., etc. All Windows OSes are the same in this respect.

If you are stuck in a setup loop, this probably will not work for you. Windows generally would have to have been completely installed before this would work...

Sony vaio tr3a screen is black, but safemode lettering shows when I reboot with f 8 held down so I know the monitor is working but when I choose safemode and the computer tries to get into windows...


Hi ponotoc2,
On my acer I have some F buttons with little symbols on, I know that if I press FN + F6 it will switch my laptop screen on and off, I also can use FN + F5 to swap between monitors.
These could be different on a sony though and I can't remember what F numbers you need to press, I've seen some people say FN + F4 but im not 100% sure on this..
The symbol you should be looking for could look like 2 boxes one dark one and one coloured to simulate brightness.
I hope this helps

Chrome mouse on laptop freezes, get stuck...advice


Ok..now that I have more information about your pointer problem,yes,there could be a trojan virus causing it.Best thing to do first is,using your other mouse,boot your computer up into safemade by tapping the F8 key untill you reach a black diagnostics screen.At the top of the list you will see "safemode",using the arrow keys on your keypad,move up to "safemode" and press Enter,then wait for the boot to finish.This procedure allows you to get inot windows with services and drivers only needed to help fix many problems.Sometimes there are trojans that will use certain windows services or programs you installed to run.Using safemode allows you to "get in" your computer without those programs and services running.After you get into safemode and your all booted up,see if you can use your synaptics pointing device normally,if so,then yes,there is a very good chance you have a trojan or trojans infecting your computer.If so,best thing to do,is open your virus scanner while you are in safemode and do a complete scan,to see if any virus or trojans are present and remove them,then reboot your computer and let it boot back up normally.We will see if any trojans or viruses are in your computer with this methode.Good luck.Please let me know what happens:)
