laptop will not boot

Post by adjuster1951 on 21st September 2009, 2:12 am

I have a Sony Vaio running windows XP home version 2002. When I turn it on the Vaio screen starts then instead of windows booting I get a black screen with a little white line that blinks on the top left of the screen. I read thru the forum and the thread I found to be closest to my problem stated that he unpluged the HDD and the Memory then reatached them and it booted fine. I tried that with no luck. Also I tried F5, F8, F12 trying to get into safe mode. F8 first then someone said vaio was F5 so I tried, the F12 which I don't remember why. The computer was working fine before. No installs that I can recall The last download was an XLS viewer. Thanks in advance for anyone who can help me.

Hi

Seems like a video card issue. I recommend to take the computer to a local repair shop, and have the card tested.
