    Hi ,

    I have a Sony Vaio S Series VPCSA35GG laptop that was working fine until it shutdown itself and since then it is unable to boot. It just displays a blinking cursor and does not boot or does not display any error messages.

    I have also tried vaio care rescue option to copy my data and it also fails with mshta.exe error.

    I have tried resetting BIOS to default values but did not help. I also don't have windows 7 disks.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Is the hard drive detected by the BIOS or the "vaio care rescue option"?

    If so run the diagnostics on it, if the BIOS includes any.

    Thanks for your response.

    The Vaio care does detect the hard disk and starts the rescue process displaying 845 hours (for 300GB data) to back up the disk and after running for few minutes abort displaying the mshta.exe error.

    I am not sure how to run diagnostics via BIOS. I went to BIOS screen and reset to default as was suggested by someone vi Google search but that didnt help either.
