Question about Computers & Internet

Windows Vista won't load on my Sony Vaio. When starting up, it brings me to a black screen that says there is software either missing or requires an update, and won't let me go past that screen. When pressing "enter" or "esc" it just takes me right back to the black screen.

Boot from the Vista CD and run a windows repair (non-destructive so you keep your files).

Try Safe Mode. Press F8 key during bootup and you will be presented with a black screen with multiple choices. Select "Safe Mode". This will load Windows with minimal drivers and with admin login option. If you can log in as administrator then create a new account in the Control Panel. Restart the computer and shut down. If it shuts down correctly then you are half way there, windows OS is not to badly corrupted. Boot up and if it comes up normally select the new profile you created.

If this does not work, then you will have to repair the system files, for which you will need a OS CD or restore disk.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V3M and I have just

If you can see the windows logo and get into the bios then it is not the graphics card.

Most likely cause is the os itself, just after post press F8 repeatetly until you have the boot mode page open and choose safe mode, in safe mode do a system restore, goto start bar, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore, and start from a resent restore point. This can can take a while, so be patient and let the computer restore itself until you have the windows screen up.

If the restore dosent work, goto safe mode again, right click on my computer goto properties and enter device manager, in there under display adapters click on the plus sign and uninstall the graphics card, reboot. hope this helps post back if need farther help.

Sony vaio lcd screen turns black after start up


graphics card software fault. start the pc and get it to bring up the start menu where you see options such as safe mode,usually holding down f8 when you boot. (If all else fails whilst windows is loading hold down your power button to power it off then it should automatically ask you what to do.)
select restore to known good configuration.
If that does cure it boot to safe mode and do a system roll back (restore) to an earlier time when it did work
If that doesn't work, also in safe mode you can try removing the graphics card drivers and forcing it to load windows default drivers. then update from the website.
If nothing works, not even safe mode then you'll need to use your windows disks or recovery discs. If you fear losing everything then try downloading and burning a ubuntu live disc on another PC and use that to load your laptop then copy and back up your files to another drive or usb stick using the ubuntu operating system.

I have a sony vaio vgn-sz491n. i have loaded windows 7 professional, 64bit onto it. in the device manager, it shows that a driver for a mass storage controller is missing. where can i find this...


Most likely missing a driver for SD/MC card reader
The problem is that Sony doesnt offer drivers for 64-bit windows so the other 32-bit drivers will not be compatible.
You have the options to install the windows versions supported by sony from esupport.sony.com (Vista or XP)
Or try installing windows 7 32-bit and installing the missing drivers from esupport (Vista section) as usually they are compatible.
If the driver is still missing you will need to update the driver from device manager (previously installed from esupport) and then select to browse or select a location, which will be %temp% or what is the same the temp folder for your account C\users\your_user_name\appdata\temp. This folder is usually hidden but it will work if you just type %temp%

Power on brings the first screen "Vaio" up but then the screen goes black/blank and the "Windows XP Home Edition" page never comes up..any ideas. PS I am experienced with desktops primarily....


Before Vaio comes up, start pushing F1 or F8 or F11. If it lets you in to restore your comp, do it. That's the only way to fix this. You will lose all your files and info on your laptop though.

Windows loads then screen goes blank


Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete then when task manager comes up, look under processes, if "explorer.exe" is running end the task.

Next, go to File>run and run "explorer.exe". This should bring up your desktop and icons.
