hello i am wondering if anyone can help me ?

My Sony Vaio Laptop (Windows Vista)
It will turn on fine and get to the windows page where the green bar moves from left to right after that is just goes blank (with the laptop still on and it seems to slow down with nothing happening ??
Also I cannot use the recovery option with the F button because this doesnt work either ?

I have contacted Sony and they havent told me why it is doing this but only I will have to send it into repair at my cost?!

Anyone please help ?

Regards

Hi,
Try this:

Boot PC,
As it is booting tap F8
When you get he menu which starts with "Safe Mode"
Look for the entry "Enable VGA mode" (Or words to that effect)
Select it using the arrow keys and t he enter key.
The PC will reboot and you should get to the desktop.
You will have to reset the destop reselution afterwards but that should be no proble.

Could be a corrupt/faulty hard drive.

Try downloading/burning a Linux Live CD and running your computer off that. If it works it is the hard drive that is broken/corrupted, else it could be memory/motherboard.

Where did you buy the computer from?
