Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGC-V517G PC Desktop ?

Sony Vaio PCV-RX540

\015 One day my desktop simply would not boot up. It would freeze during the start up. It won't even start in safe mode-it also freezes. Any hope besides using recovery disks and losing data?\015

Answers :

You mentioned that you could not login in the safe mode so try this remove the hard drive\015\012and using it as en external drive for another computer.Then open\015\012notepad and copy and paste below.

\015\012[boot loader]
\015\012timeout=30
\015\012default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\\WINDOW S
\015\012[operating systems]
\015\012multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /noexecute=optin

\015\012Then save this to the external drive as boot.ini , It should as if you\015\012want to replace you answer yes..then all you have to do is replace the\015\012drive back in original PC .
You will be able to login after performing the above operation .

This works for xp
