Didn't find anyone else who seemed to have what I was having happen happen so here goes a new post.
I have a 3-year-old sony vaio that windows won't load on correctly. It just decided one morning that in normal or any Safe Mode services.exe and lsass won't initialize (that's a pretty good show-stopper, huh?).
Then I just sit staring at a black screen -- oddly enough I can still move the pointer, though...with the touchpad thingy and even if I plug in my USB mouse.
Ctrl Alt Del won't do a thing and I can't find my repair disk that I'm pretty sure should have come with my laptop when I bought it... I was under the impression all laptops within the last few years have a small partition that's reserved for the windows back-to-factory whatsit, I just haven't a clue how to make it do it's thing and I think I need that repair disk. I refuse to pay some jerk from the UK 35$ for one that should be free, too, especially not knowing if it will work or not... (I was looking for a free download... I figured sony would offer them, actually... I assume that you wouldn't be able to make it work without your windows activation code which is on a sticker... why do they have to make things so complicated?).
I know a thing or two, but I hate computers so I seem to have a hard time keeping it fresh.
