Can you provide me with some simple troubleshooting steps on how I can fix my laptop? My laptop is a Sony Vaio with Vista OS. Whenever I turn my laptop on, and get to the black screen with "start windows automatically", it will take a long long time for me to get to the "Welcome" screen. Worst, it will take a day for me to go to the Welcome screen where I get to key in my user name and password but after doing so, another long wait time again to get to the desktop. Recently, I don't even get to see the desktop. There is another option when I turn the laptop on that says: "Start Launch Repair". When I click this, there's a loooong wait (like a day again) but it won't get to the "Welcome" screen. What do you think is wrong with my laptop? Please advise. Thanks.
