I have a Sony Vaio Laptop vgnnr498e. When i start it up it gets to the screen where it has the slider scrolling across the bar. It just gets stuck here and slides forever. I also tried going booting to safe mode. It takes me to the screen where it shows loading windows files and freezes there.Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to BC.

Did you get recovery disks with your Vaio?

Read Cannot start the VAIO Recovery Center because the computer will not start to the operating system.

You want to try the Start Up Repair first.

If you have Vista DVD...


If you don't have Vista DVD...

1. Create Vista Recovery Disc.

Option 1:

Option 2:
Download Vista Recovery Disc iso image: http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vist...-disc-download/
Burn it to CD, or DVD: http://neosmart.net/wiki/display/G/Burning...+to+a+CD+or+DVD

2. Boot from created disk.
At first screen click on Repair your computer:

This will bring you to a new screen where the repair process will look for all Windows Vista installations on your computer. When done you will be presented with the System Recovery Options dialog box:

After this, it will present you with a list of options including startup repair, system restore and command prompt:

Try System Restore, first.
If that doesn't work, try Startup Repair.
