    Hi guys, i use a sony vaio laptop, model VGN-NR11S/S, with windows vista home premium installed. I noticed that when booting with a CD in it, it stops at the loading bar screen (black screen) and does not continue booting except i remove the CD.

    The problem now is that it does not boot beyond the loading bar screen anymore with or without a CD in the system. I cant use the system again, i need suggestions to get the system functioning. Thanks.

    follow this order.

    1. Run a chkdsk from the recovery enviroment command prompt, when you get to the command prompt, type in the following and let it run to completion, do not interupt the process. when done restart the PC after removing the Vista DVD, see if it will boot now.

    chkdsk /r C:

    2. Do a start up repair.

    3. if no luck with 1 or 2, try a restore

    Is it 32bit or 64bit Vista?

    Mumbodog,unfotunately your url's go nowhere...are you a registered member maybe?
    Checkdisk as you describe cannot be run in Vista however booting to the Vista Dvd if you boot in to Dvd and then scroll to bottom of the screen, there are repairs there and amongst them "hard drive repair" which is really the same thing. Of course there is startup repair also but the real question is do they have a Vista Dvd as Sony doesn't give those out any more than most other makers do. There should however be a way to boot to the repair page which gives all the same options.

    They work for me, no complaints since I started using them a year ago, no I am not a member of that site.

    If they need a Vista recovery environment bootable CD, then they can download one of these ISO files and burn it to CD or DVD as an image.

    I didn't mean they dead end, I meant they all 3 go to the same page that offers no solution to the issues unless I am missing something.
