Sony Vaio VPCYB14KX problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When the laptop is powered on, all it displays is a black screen with a flashing white icon at the very top left of the screen. It does not show any boot screen, goes straight to black with flashing icon at top left. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks

Okay going to need a few more details before I can give you a diagnosis.
Can you access the bios?
You said its a blinking cursor and nothing else, does that mean it does not boot at all?
Will it boot to safe mode?
How long have you had it?
What OS are you running?
When did you last use it and was it behaving normally?

Its a friends laptop, was told about 3 months old. She said it was working fine until yesterday when she first turned it on for the day to find a black screen with a flashing _ at the top left corner. When turned on, it shows the Vaio splash screen for about 3 seconds and then straight to black. No bios options, no boot screen, nothing. I cannot type anything and after waiting an hour it had not changed and the disk light is not flashing. Windows 7 is loaded on it.
