Hello admin,

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.

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

 

Start tapping the F8 key immediately after pressing the power button.  This will open the Advanced Boot Options, use the up or down arrow to navigate to Safe Mode, then press Enter.

 

If you can boot into Safe Mode is the computer still slow?
