Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-A150 Notebook ?

Constant Restarting Reformatted computer When I'm trying to fill in the name of the computer and all that stuff I get a blue screen with a bunch of writing on it, but I cannot read what it says because it splits in an instant.

Answers :

If the restore partition was corrupted during the computers operation then it will not allow you to configure the Windows XP setup correctly. The blue screen is what we call the blue screen of death. Most of the time you have to start completely over from step one until you get past it. It can be anything from a memory problem to a bad sector in the hard-drive to a bad install file for one of the drivers. They hide the service partition from the average user on the computer so they will not mess with it. It is some times used to help restore the OS if it gets a glitch in it, from a backup file located else where on the hard-drive. This partition usually contains the drivers needed for the particular computer that it is installed in. If you replace the hard drive then you will need to create this partition from a backup CD, if you received one with the computer. If you didn't you can setup a new drive without the partition by doing a Windows XP new install and then install the individule drivers for the computer so it will operate correctly. The drivers can usually be downloaded from the manufacturers site and then burned to a CD rom for use. I came across a forum that had some information on the recovery partition that may be helpful to you, and there seemed to be a lot of frustration with the recovery utilities of the Vaio. Spinrite is another utility that can be helpful in recovering a crashed hard-drive. http://www.chat11.com/Problems_With_Sony_Vaio_Recovery_Wizard
