I have had this Viao for about 2 years but never had a problem. The operating system is Windows 7.
The laptop was working fine apart from louder noises coming from the fan recently, I thought it could be down to over heating as I work with it on my lap most of the time.
This afternoon I switched on the laptop and displayed the Windows Error recovery prompt. I didn't think that was unusual as sometimes I put the laptop on sleep mode with the battery running.
I tried to start windows as normal but after about 5 minutes Windows wouldn't start. I switched off the laptop and tried to start again. Windows Error recovery prompt appeared again, this time I selected, Launch Startup repair, the screen was blank for a few moments and then returned to Windows Error Recovery Prompt, it keeps doing a loop and wont start or complete the error recovery. I tried to run the laptop in Safe Mode and again windows will not open. I was not provided with a recovery disk nor a windows 7 disk when I purchased this laptop. I received an update just before this happened but I have a horrible feeling this may be a virus.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I love this little laptop

Moved from Vista to Win 7.
