I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Has the warranty run out ?

It seems to be overheating so try blowing out any dust at the fan outlet using a can of air, or use a straw or similar and blow through that.

Also try using it on a flat table or desk if you aren't already doing so.

my computer freezes up during start-up. to solve the problem, i reformatted my pc, but it still freezes. i removed the dedicated VGA to see if it's the one causing the problem, but to no avail. PC still freezes and sometimes, when it loads, it freezes and screen turns green,black, and sometimes blue. IS this a hardware problem? how can i fix this?

HDD: 300Gb
Processor: Athlon phenom II 965
OS : winxp pro

actions taken but didn't solve the problem:

1. installed and run CCcleaner and Registry Easy
2. removed dedicated VGA (geforce 9500)
3. reinstalled OS
4. updated graphics drivers.

can anyone help??

I'm working on a Sony Vaio vgc-v617g which has worked fine until just recently. It's one of those desktops with all the hardware built into the screen, like a mac. Now, when i boot it up it shows the vaio symbol for about 1 second, and then the screen goes blank. It does this once more with the windows welcome screen. Its visible for about one second, and goes blank. The computer is still doing work, even though the screen is blank. Is it the backlight? I dont know if its possible that a backlight will work for a second even though it's dead. Is it repairable?

A friend of mine discovered that it is the keyboard itself that is the problem. He got past the black screen by holding down various keys. He then plugged in in an external keyboard. This helped initially, but the problems are still reoccurring. I rememeber now that I used an anti static cleaner on the keys a while ago. Stupidly, I sprayed directly onto the keys instead of onto a cloth first. This must have caused a short circuit of some kind.

Hi all.
Earlier tonight I was sat on my sony vaio laptop when the cat jumped up and ran over the keyboard. This managed to turn the screen black. I have tried to restart the computer butwhen I do the vaio logo appears but then the screen turns black. I connected it to my tv via hdmi and it does the same on the tv. Logo appears and then black.
Everywhere else I have read says they had a blinking cursor. I have no cursor. I'm wandering if the cat had pressed a shortcut or something. I have also tried to launch safe mode but to no avail.

Any help welcome

I am not a professional but took 2 years in tech school. I have a sony vaio laptop model # SVE1512JCXW. Every time I turn it on I get the VAIO then a black screen with the mouse that I can move around the black screen. That's it. I've tried with the battery out and power cord in and vise versa. I've tried removing thr memory sticks and replacing them with the original sticks and some extras I have, all to no avail. I have a feeling the hard drive is fried because when I put in a blank extra hard drive I got all the information you would expect from installing a new hard drive that's been swept. So I could really use some expert advice and would really appreciate it. Thanks

Hello, I have a Sony vaio PCG-71312L for around 2 years. After trying to install a program it freezed and didn't answer any commands, so i shutdown it by pressing the power button. When i tried to boot it, it went past "start" window to black screen only with mouse on it. I can turn on caps lock and num lock. I've tried loading default settings in BIOS, I've tried removing battery, removing and replacing RAMs, I've tried recovering after pressing F8 button, restoring it to last successful boot. After all this it's still black screen with mouse on it, did anyone have this problem, could you help me ?

Hello all,

My laptop was working really well until Friday night, when I turned it on and logged on. Then when I launched up google chrome, the system froze, after a few minutes it was still frozen so I did a dirty shutdown and held down the power button.

Since then, it's been a nightmare. I've twice done a system repair which both times took about 7 hours.

Now I'm stuck with this situation, whether I start windows normally or in safe mode, I cannot get past the logon screen as it just freezes almost within a couple of seconds.

Can anyone suggest what to do? I'm not that good with the technical aspect so you may need to explain things in a bit more detail.

Many thanks

Hello memoman and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "system repair". There's System Restore that can (hopefully) restore your computer to an earlier date/time before the problem began.

System Restore

There's Startup Repair that may fix certain problems, such as a missing or damaged MBR boot file that might prevent Windows from starting correctly.

Startup Repair

Then there are diagnostic/repair scans that can sometimes fix startup issues.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

And then there's something called a Repair Install where you try to rebuild the entire Windows 7 operating system without affecting your user accounts, personal data, programs, system drivers, etc.

Repair Install

Did you try using one or more of these tools and if so, which one(s)?

Sounds like your LCD is bad.

Sounds like you have one of two things going on: either a bad inverter board, or the flourescent tube in the LCD is dead.

The inverter board is fairly easy to replace, and costs around $100. The flourescent tube is a much more troubling issue - generally the only option is to replace the entire LCD, and they do get expensive. Some repair shops claim to be able to replace just the flourescent tube - this can be a little less expensive. But it's hard to find a repair shop that can do that.

I had problems with the screen going strange colours , flickering really bad and the text was not being displayed correctly so thought the screen had failed,even though after a few hours it would display correctly for a while ,replaced it and it was even worse the images were really bad so had it replaced again as i thought it was faulty,installed new screen and its the same.Does not flicker now or change to strange colours but text and images are not right.Plugged in to external monitor it is OK heres a pic taken with camera ment to be my cat lol

A:Sony Vaio Screen Display

I might be misunderstanding something so I apologize in advance. The cat image is being displayed in Windows Photo Viewer and obviously the image isn't displaying correctly. The screen behind the cat is (I'm guessing) your Pictures library. It seems to be displaying OK. So in this one particular instance it's possible that Windows Photo Viewer might be damaged or corrupted in some way. Since Photo Viewer is a part of the Windows operating system, a System File Checker scan may be able to fix damaged or corrupt files. If SFC finds any problems, run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Another possibility might be a damaged or corrupt driver. You could open Device Manager to see if there are any problems listed, particularly for the Vaio monitor, display adapters, and system devices.

Open Device Manager

I noticed two nites ago that there was a black spot in the lower left corner of my screen, where the "start" is. I touched it, and the thing was blazing hot in the whole lower left hand corner area!

My hubby took it down to my shop and blew it out with the air compresser.

It still got hot and had the black spot.

After one full day of that, I turned it on this morning and it has been okay.

The fan didn't seem to be running yesterday, but is this morning.

I don't really see how the fan would cool the outside of the screen, though, one way or the other.

I have a Sony Vaio all-in-one desktop model LS25E. It used to crash occasionally, but has been working great for a year or more now. Until yesterday. A driver message came up and then the computer shut down. I rebooted and after a short period of time it shut down again. It did this about 5 times and then it just wouldn't boot back up. I did a hardware check, and it said the hardware was fine. I did a system restore and it said it completed the restore and would restart, but it only restarted to the point of showing me a blank screen. Now, if I turn off the computer and restart it, it shows the opening Vaio logo, then the microsoft bar scrolling on the bottom, then a blank screen and that's it.

A:Sony Vaio Pcgfr28-5m Screen Problems

Exactly what does it do, when you boot up?
Do you get the POST beep (Single beep,) indicating that the motherboard and processor pass the built in test?
Do all the fans come on, and the drive lights flash?
Does it just sit there , or does it continue like it is loading windows, with drives flashing etc, just no video?

If no lights at all, probably power supply.
If lights flash and fans spin, but no beep and then it just clicks off, or sits there with no drive activity, then probably processor, or maybe motherboard.
If lights flash, fans spin, single beep, and then the hard drive keeps flashing, probably dead video.

A:Sony vaio VGN-NR31Z screen problem


the RAM isn't the problem if your pc is booting normally and you hear Windows sound.. If you tried all, the possibilities are 2:

- laptop's screen is broken
- laptop's GPU is broken

to test what is broken, try to connect your laptop to an external display. If it works, your GPU is fine and your laptop's screen should be the problem...

I looked to the C drive and found my previously set files for the desktop, but they did not come up? How do I get back to my original desktop????? Possibly some update occurred at bootup and changed everything back to default???

A:Sony Vaio Stuck on welcoming screen, with no way to help?

It is normal that a laptop won't use an external monitor in pre-OS environment. You won't lose files because of this. However, you should be backing up your user/data files when everything is running normal, because it may not be so tomorrow!

See Notebook screen busted, display refuses to work pre-OS : techsupport

Edit: Some laptops do have such a feature but it is normally a premium one.

I have a Sony Laptop Model PCG-993L. When I go to the control panel in Win
XP and click on Display. Then click and drag the finger from 1024 x 768 to 800 x 600, the display only takes up to 2/3 of the full screen. If I click on the
Max button on the programs display screen it doen't increase it but maybe an eighth of an inch. How can I get this thing to use the full screen in the 800 x 600 mode?


A:screen resolutions on a Sony Vaio Laptop

There are useally two ways:
One is a visit to the BIOS screen an look for something like "stretch" or "expand" in the video section.
The other is that there should be a <Fn> key on the keyboard that if used in combination with the correct funtion key will do it dynamically,

By the way, it wil look awefull.

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio VGN-Z56GG laptop and the screen is very faint.

It still displays stuff on the screen like post screen,bios and desktop, but it's so faint I cant make out the detail.

I tried setting the brightness to max.

If I plug another monitor in to the laptop i can see it on the other monitor fine.

Any ideas?


A:Sony Vaio VGN-Z56GG screen problem.

Either your inverter or backlight has gone, you can refer to the manual as to how to open up the laptop and change this if you're comfortable with that, or you can take it to a shop to have it replaced.

My sony vaio was on and I had AIM up, also with an away message. I had been away from my laptop for about an hour. When I came back my laptop was frozen. I tried task manager with no success. I ended up having to hold down the power button until it turned off. I waited a few minutes and tried powering it back on. It powers on fine, goes to the vaio screen and then gets stuck on the black windows xp screen with the loading bar right underneath, still moving. I tired turning it off and letting it sit for awhile. I tired taking the battery out and powering it with just the power cord. It does go into safe mode with no problems but I'm not too familiar with using safe mode. I'll take and try any suggestions. I'm pretty much lost without it right now. Thanks!

My Wife's Sony Vaio notebook running Win 8.1,
now hangs at the login screen.  
Screen slow to appear from boot,
finally paints the login screen correctly, with her personalized photo, her name, and a rotating cursor.
but IO is not functional, mouse pad won't make the cursor move around the screen
rotating "circle" will rotate about 10 seconds, 
then quickly flash the input bar and we think it says "password hints", but disappears after 1/2 second, 
back to rotating cursor circle.  This repeats over and over.
Can only hard shut down.
This is first time it has ever done this. 
Last night, she was complaining of slow internet, but the rest of our laptops were normal speed.
You guys have saved me on other computers, including my own.
Any suggestions?

When I click View Problem Details, I get event: APPCRASH and Application Name: DWM.exe.

I did some searching and found a suggestion to run a SFC scan to check for any corrupted files. I did and it found no difficulties.

Today I also had two Blue-Screens come up. The messages stay up maybe 15 seconds, so I couldn't copy much. First one suggested running Memory Check, which I would do if I could find it. I searched my computer and found no Memory Check. I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and found no memory errors.

The second one said System Service Exception.

Not sure what to try next...........

I have a 4 year old Sony Vaio. Recently I installed an Adobe Acrobat Update which automatically downloaded McAfee Anti Virus. I de-installed that and the laptop wouldn't turn off subsequently so I did a successful start-up repair.

Since the start-up repair the keyboard cursor is intermittently jumping all over the place. It is not confined to any particularly key on the keyboard:- it will jump back a sentence; it will highlight a sentence; it will delete something by jumping to the undo button.

I have not had this problem before. I really do not want to use a mouse as I prefer the touchpad

A:Sony Vaio - Keyboard cursor moving all over screen after repair

Do a System Restore to a point before the problem began, if necessary from System Recovery Options on the Win7 disk or System Repair Disk

If this is the original factory install then I'd seriously consider doing a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 since the factory install is the worst possible install of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilities which interfere with better versions built into Win7.

At the minimum I'd Clean Up Factory Bloatware especially turning off all Startup items in msconfig except your AV which ideally should be one of the free lightweight ones like MSE or free Panda.

I am sure someone will be along with more ideas but to start you off,May one ask ; what antivirus program was on it and was it fully updated? Did you have Service Pack 2 installed??What kind of 'death did it apparently die?Did it suddenly play up or gradually and how?For what had the computer been used? When you press the F2 key what, if any, choices do you see and what happens if you attempt to select any of them?I guess you cannot even disable your Antivirus program?One wonders if it is infected or a hardware/software problem ( ps; Congratulations on your 'new arrival' I hope not too many sleepless nights for mum ? )

This procedure assumes you have a system restore point to before you were infected.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode with Command Prompt by doing the following: Restart your computer.
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start pressing the F8 key.
In some systems, this may be the F5 key.
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear.
Use the up arrow key to highlight Safe Mode with Command Prompt and press 'Enter'.
Login on your usual account that has administrative credentials.

At the command prompt cursor, type the following bolded command and press 'Enter':


Follow the prompts to restore to a point before you started having trouble.

Your machine should do a System Restore and will reboot.

Upon reboot, you should get the message 'Restoration Complete'. Let me know.

So if anybody has any ideas, it would be greatly appreciated, if i just need to run chkdsk, is there a way i can do it with a usb stick? or anything else?

Plug in an external monitor if possible. If the red lines are visible on that too, it rules out your laptop screen being faulty and is therefore likely to be a faulty GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) inside the laptop.

They said that all hardwares are looking fine, no physical damage, but laptop still crashes even when it's cold.Did malware and virus scan-clean, did triple ramtest check-clean, graphic overcloac test- no crashes. I went in safemode and opened 10 youtube videos and 3 games at once-works fine.

I have a sony Vaio laptop that hangs on shutdown occasionally, and will occasionally totally freeze. Funny thing is I can use alt-Tab but I can't change programs.

I also had a couple of total reboots the other day, which I attribute to bad update with a .NET Framework update. Once I stopped running a program that was using my USB/Serial adapter, the laptop stopped rebooting itself.

I am running Win XP Media

A:Sony Vaio - Hangs and freezes

.Net Framework would not be causing freezes and reboots. But your USB adapter might. Remove it and see if the problems still persist. Be sure to blow out all fans with compressed air and make sure laptop is well ventilated from the bottom. Just to eliminate overheating.

How do I clean my Sony Vaio X-Black display? It has a lot of dust and smudges on it so I want to make sure that I do not scratch it.

Whats the best product to buy and how do I apply it?


A:cleaning sony vaio x-black monitor

Use an old soft cotton T-shirt slightly repeat slightly dampened with plain water. do not use anything like Windex or glass plus on it. If the smudges are stubborn, you can mak a mixture of about 5 parts water to 1 part vinegar to dampen the cloth slightly.

I have a Vaio desktop, and when I leave it for a period of time and come back, it freezes up when i open a program and then does the microsoft error report thing and won't do anything. anyone have this problem or no what the heck is going on , its kind of annoying.

A:Sony Vaio Freezes up after not being used for awile .. anyone have this problem

I would try configuring the settings under power management in the control panel. Don't allow it to go into hibernation or shut down in any way on it's own. configure for never, never, never, never. uncheck the box that allows for hibernation and the box that prompts for a password upon wakening.

Also, check out blackviper website. Configure your Pc better by shutting off unessessary programs like the microsoft error reporting. Start-->run-->type in services.msc.

The blackviper website explains it all..............

My knowledge of computers is, at best, rudimentary, so please pardon any omissions. I have a Sony VAIO VPC EE2E1E which uses Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit). Its ram is 3 GB; its HDD (SATA), 320 GB; its CPU, AMD Athlon II P320 (2.10 Ghz).

As of yesterday, it has been freezing randomly. The HDD light turns off and the keyboard, along with the touchpad, stops responding. If I'm listening to music, it repeats the same millisecond over and over. (It sounds like someone getting stangled with Auto-Tune). The screen stays on--as do the power and caps-lock lights.

Anyone have any idea what I should do?

I get the blue circle when my computer freezes. Then I get the black screen. The only way to shut down is to turn off power strip and then turn back on again. This happens multiple times.
Any suggestions?

I am running XP Pro, IE8 with SP3. This is a new install into a custom built computer. I was having a blue screen problem, and this disappeared, now after I've been using the computer for maybe 1 hr. or 5 hrs., no real pattern, it will freeze and within seconds, the screen goes black. The fans continue to run and I can push the small thin button on top of the handle (not the main power button) and it will reboot and run perfectly. I know this problem has been seen many times, and can be caused by a number of items, one being heat. I've run a heat test, and it appears everything is fine. Anyone who has seen this problem, and can possibly help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi freribeiro,

Sounds like a malfunctioning graphics card, but we'll explore other possibilities.

Please can you go to: Start > Type: Event Viewer > Windows Logs > System - Then scroll down to the 'event time' when the freeze occured then screenshot the events before and after it.

System only freezes up after playing either WOW or Warhammer for about 5 minutes. Sometimes you hear sound continuing while screen is black. Sometimes the sound will make a repetitious stuttering type of duh-duh-duh-duh sound. The only way to continue is to do a hard reboot (push the button).

If this is RAID then WIn7 doesn't much like RAID. Since before it was released we've seen nothing but RAID problems here. RAID also confers no advantages and in most cases isn't even redundant. So I'd reconsider RAID.
