I have a SONY VAIO portable running Windows 10. When I shut down and then turn the power back on, I get a black screen and several minutes are required to launch the OS. I assumed this was a hardware problem and tried first changing the battery since the computer is not young. To no effect. Can anyone confirm the problem is hardware and perhaps suggest a solution? Thanks

Please post system specs as that can help to diagnose the problem.

Is fast start up enabled in windows?

If its enabled actually disable it, it may sound counter intuitive but it may be a good idea to disable it.

For some the "windows fast boot" option is a load of crap under some hardware

Aaaah! If only computer science were intuitive! Then maybe artificial intelligence would be less artificial. :)

Anyway, I found it and tried it. However, to test, I had to shut the computer down (I've had it sleeping only for some time now, rebooting regularly). Now it won't come back on. Power shows on and there is ventilation from time to time but no HD activity however many times I try. Before, I always got a result after several tries. So I'm going to give up and take out the hard disk. I have to work with my data. If there's anything I can do to save the machine without too much effort, I'll try but I've already bought a new computer. Too bad about the money wasted on batteries. Thanks anyway!

Well at least you may have another hard drive to play with now, you could make a laptop drive into a external drive with a enclosure if the hard drive is still viable.

Or use it as spare internal drive on either a laptop or a desktop, for the desktop there are plenty of adapters and brackets to make it compatible.

So its not a total loss, shame about the machine though.
