Is your HDD LED flashing? -Try pressing F8 on startup to show the boot menu option of your OS if it is Windows. If it does appear use Safe Mode first. If not successful try re-installing your OS.

When starting up laptop all i get is the vaio logo then a blank screen with a blinking underscore in the top left corner

Try rebooting and pressing F8 when it starts until after the Vaio logo - this should allow you to attempt to boot into safe mode (without networking for now).

When in safe mode - open a command prompt by pressing the windows key on your keyboard and R.
Now type - cmd - (not the - )

A black box comes up so type - chkdsk /f - then answer Y - press enter and close the window.

Restart the system and see if it boots into Windows.

Hope this helps - good luck.

Blank screen nothing left

ok...do you have the install CD around? Slip that into the cd/dvd reader, and restart. The system should read that, and ask to reinstall your o/s. Hopefully, your data is still good on your hard drive.

Black screen

Some USB devices seem to cause this problem. I've had it myself. USB devices when hooked up cause the computer to freeze as it hard for USB drivers to be loaded outside of windows. Try updating you windows thru windows update though even updated I still run into the problem sometimes. If updating dosen't work you need to keep the drive unhooked while booting then hook up in windows.
