Question about Computers & Internet
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 your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
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 the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
