Re: Sony Vaio SVT131A11L will not boot up

Boot up in it does not boot into Windows?  Or you don't even see the VAIO splash screen?


If the latter is the case, there is something wrong with your hardware, and a repair, is possilbe, is the only thing you can do.


If you see the splash screen but get a clear error message such as the system was unable to start Windows, or something like that, then you could 1. try repairing Windows form a Windows installation disc (the MBR may be corrupted), 2. reinstall Windows from scratch, or 3. restore Windows to factory settings using your recovery disc or from the recovery partition on your installed hard drive if you still have it.
