Sony Vaio turns off immediately after turning on.

My Vaio laptop will turn itself off instantly upon turning on. It starts up as if it will work correclty but then turns off after making a weird noise coming from the bottom right of the computer. Previous to this, It was continuously trying to do a system repair, but when it said it had finished and needed to restart, it would turn off and not restart. So I would turn it on and it would attempt a system repair again. This was a never ending cycle. So I clicked cancel to just try and do a factory reset and now it just wont turn on. What may be causing this problem?

Re: Sony Vaio turns off immediately after turning on.

if it is making a loud noise does it come from the fan or harddrive?

and when it shuts down does the computer feels hot?

Re: Sony Vaio turns off immediately after turning on.

it sounds like its the hard drive. And it's not hot. Currently, I am leaving it turned off for 30 minutes (another 10 to go) and will try again.

Re: Sony Vaio turns off immediately after turning on.

Okay, so I got it to start up again, finally. But now it is doing what it did prior to the start up problem. It will continuously try to repair itself then shut down and not restart like it is suppose to. So I will manually turn it on and it will go through the repair system again. Ive tried the F10 key at start up and will not work. Automatically goes to "Windows is loading Files" with grey load bar.

Re: Sony Vaio turns off immediately after turning on.

if you go to f10 it will really show you that it is loading files that is Sony's recovery option, you can then try to check of you can use the recovery function of the computer, inyour case you might have corrupted files in your system and will not load up windows.

you might want to do a full format and put it back to factory settings to resolve your issue

hope this helps

Well, I tried to do a restore and now its booting up telling me "operating system not found"
And I can't access any menu except the boot menu.

Well it brought up a screen that asked me to select a partition to use I chose one and it went through the recover process and then it shut down and when I started it back up it told me there was no Operating System found
