Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-UX280P Notebook ?

I can not get my laptop to turn on.

\015 My sony vgn-ux280p tells me upon trying to start that my windows startup is corrupt or the file is missing. I removed the battery march 31 to avoid the conflicker worm and the next day when I put the battery back in my computer would not start?\015

Answers :

The Conflicker worm will execute at start-up and a predetermined date/time regardless of battery removal. If you did have the virus (very possible), and you started your system, you will have destroyed the boot sector of the hard disk necessary for Windows to operate properly.

Your solution is to use your factory restore disk to wipe the drive and re-install Windows.

Use a robust anti-virus program like NOD32/ESET after you restore your system. They have a 30 day free trial, and it's well worth the price of 50 dollars a year to protect yourself from further attack.
