Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Sony Viao issues
\015 I am thinking about buying this sony viao from a lady for $200, she told me what was going on with it and she said '' It starts up and when windows starts to load it blue screens and shuts down. It will do this continually until you manually shut it down.'' What might be the problem and is it worth buying and fixing. I'm not lookin to put in 300-400 dollars into it. I can handle 50-100 dollars. Someone told me its probably the hard drive needing replacing, then i was told it was a great deal and once i get it home do a constructive recovery on it..\015\012Being tech's..what do you think the problem may be and is it worth buying and fixing? Thank you so much\015
If ur getting the blue screen and it shuts off then definately the hard drvie but onething u can do is that u can restore the computer to the factory setting by reinstalling the operating system,without buying a new hard drive where u dont have to buy a new hard drive,u can reinstall the operating sytem with the help of the operating system disk or by going into the choices menu by pressing the f12 on the keyboard and then select the pc restore to the manufacturer's setting.and then hit enter and it will take near about 30-45 minutes and then u rcomputer will be like the first day u have received the computer u dont have to buy a new hard drive before replacing the hard drive pls try these steps.hope it will solve ur problem.thanks
