Question about Sony VAIO VGN-CR220E/P Notebook
My laptop is running windows 7 and since the last windows updates it's been booting really slowly, and sits on a black screen with a flashing _ for a while before finally loading. Checking problems brings up a message saying the Flash Loader Utility is not compatible with this version of windows and to contact my computer manufacturer. Contacting Sony is useless, as they never get back to me, and google is no help for this issue. Plz help D:
If FLU is referring to USB drives, then try adjusting the boot menu order in BIOS and make the hard drive 1st boot.

SOURCE: Sony Vaio aftermarket battery
i have the same problem with the aftermarket battery. my sony is VGN-S48GP which i have for 3 years.
there are a few posting about this on the web on how to solve them. some people are successful and some are not.
there is a .exe file call ISBmgr.exe which is contained in the start up sequence of windows XP, when the XP is installed with factory disk from sony. this programs checks the battery and does not allow non-sony battery to work with the notebook. i ask XP not to load this program and now i can use the battery.
THIS IS HOW:-
go to Run
look for startup tap
i like this method because the action is reversable. there are other posts on the web which ask you to delete the ISBmgr file. i did not choose that way.

Try to boot in Safe Mode, If you are able to move, try to Uninstall Video driver and software. Also find this adapter in Registry and delete values very carefully, better you backup your registry.
If you are unable, a fresh copy of windows will resolve this issue.
Best of Luck,

It is not a driver failure but it is a hardware failure. I have my own fz340e and have the same problem as yours. Now, my fz340e works fine.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
Also check your memory. It could be your memory chips or one of the memory slots.
Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
