You will need to re-install with the \script folder on a SD card that has been freshly formatted to FAT32.

It is possible to wipe out the OS by trying to install from a USB stick but it will not finish the install because the Sylvania NB has been hard coded to look at the SD card once there is no OS.

Sony vaio lcd screen turns black after start up

graphics card software fault. start the pc and get it to bring up the start menu where you see options such as safe mode,usually holding down f8 when you boot. (If all else fails whilst windows is loading hold down your power button to power it off then it should automatically ask you what to do.)
select restore to known good configuration.
If that does cure it boot to safe mode and do a system roll back (restore) to an earlier time when it did work
If that doesn't work, also in safe mode you can try removing the graphics card drivers and forcing it to load windows default drivers. then update from the website.
If nothing works, not even safe mode then you'll need to use your windows disks or recovery discs. If you fear losing everything then try downloading and burning a ubuntu live disc on another PC and use that to load your laptop then copy and back up your files to another drive or usb stick using the ubuntu operating system.

I have an Acer Aspire One netbook (model AOA-110) and when i try to boot it up it goes to the boot up screen and brings up a black screen and asks if i want to choose safe mode, safe mode with networking,...

Frequently ACER ASPIRE ONE A110 and A150 hang and give a black screen of death. Most probably this is due to the BIOS problems and if you want to boot them again, a BIOS updating is required.
First, download the required BIOS from the Acer site: and unzip it by another computer. (Your netbook is already dead!)

Among the extracted files and folders, there is a folder namely Dos_Flash. Open it and there are four file items there like "3310, 3310.fd, FLASHIT, and readme.
Now rename 3310.fd as ZG5IA32.fd and FLASHIT as FLASHIT.EXE and keep the rest as they are.
Copy all these four files to a fully formated and blank USB stick. In this USB stick there should be no other files or folders than what you copied now ( 3310, ZG5IA32.fd, FLASHIT.EXE, readme )

Keeping this USB stick in hand go to the dead netbook. Switch off the device if it is already on. Insert the USB stick. Having the AC power and the battery connected to the device press and hold FN+Esc and simulatneously press the power button to turn on the netbook.
Release the FN and Esc buttons after a few seconds and now the power button will be blinking. In this stage press once the power button alone.
Now the device will start updating the BIOS, we can see the process as the LED of the USB stick flashes. In a few minutes-say less than 10 minutes-the system will restart and come to life again.
Don't disturb it during this process and wait until it comes to full level of operational condition to remove the USB stick.

Best of luck,

Write Protection on any portable USB Device can be applied by the physical lock provided on the card adjuster or some times provided on the pen drives, so make sure to make your drive not write protected by moving the lock in right direction.

But even after moving the physical lock for write protection the problem can happen due to some virus action. This happens when some virus or script which applies the registry hack to make any drive write protect when connected to the computer, In that case follow the procedure below to remove write protection from your pen drive.

1. Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.

2. Navigate to the following path:


Note: If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies key does not exist, you will need to create it

Download this batch file called add.bat from here, and double click after download the key will be automatically added to registry.


3. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button


4. Exit Registry, restart your computer and then again re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer. That is it, done.
