Hi there...new here...Broken Sony Vaio on loan from work and need help as soon as possible!!!
Yesterday...I was just on the internet...not dowloading anything...just pottering around when suddenly the laptop shut itself off...no warning.
I thought oh thats not good...and attempted to restart it...but when I did...
1.Starts with the VAIO logo thing, and the noise (which i might add gets really irritating if you hear it more than a hundred times, which i now have! )
2. Immediatly goes to black screen, white writing, saying...
'We apoligise for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
Safe Mode With Networking
Safe Mode With Command Prompt
Start Windows with Last Known Goog Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Start Windows Normally
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
Seconds until Windows Starts: 30 (Counts down to zero)
Thats the screen. I have now tried every option to restart the laptop with no luck, I press an option, It starts up with the VAIO screen again, then the Windows flag screen and then goes back to the screen above.
I have also tried using the F8 key... but every option leads to this blue warning screen telling me to restart.
Any ideas?? I need to give it back to my boss asap :S
