Problem with Sony Computer restarting itself before actually opening to any page

My computer is able to turn on, however, it leads me to a black screen with options of how to get into the computer, such as safety mode. However, when i choose something, such as the safety mode, it tries, but ends up failing and restarting itself, only to redo the whole process by restarting the computer and asking me the same question. Could it be a problem with the memory or video stick/ cards?

More then likely not a hardware problem at all ( not that it couldn't be ). Most likely the computer's operating system has crashed for any # of reasons lying between virus all the way to simple glitch of the hard drive that corrupted the hard drive boot up process.
very early and just after you turn on the computer, you should be able to click on the F11 button to access the Sony Recovery Console that will allow you to perform a # of functions of Hard drive and memory diagnostics to a Full recovery of Factory default installations. It is my educated guess that this is what you will have to do, but be aware, the recovery process is long and seemingly slow and many of the programs that are installed are shareware products like the Norton Antivirus, etc. so be prepared for a long period of time devoted to watching for any prompts from the computer during this phase.
Coffee and Tea with crumpets might be advisable.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,

if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.

To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.


hope this helps

My hp pavillion is up and running but the screen is black and the caps lock light is blinking. i have tried shutting it down several times butnothing happens.


Restart the computer. If you are already in Windows, you can do this from the Windows Start menu, go to Turn off computer and click Restart. As the computer restarts, watch for a progress bar at the bottom of the screen. press F8 about once every second. (repeatedly) Immediately press F8 before the progress bar reaches the right side of the screen. From the Windows Start-up menu, highlight Safe Mode and press Enter. Wait for your desktop to appear, and then make the necessary repairs (for example, uninstall programs or devices).
