Sony laptop won't boot up after VAIO screen

Specs: Windows XP

My laptop (Sony VAIO VGN-S5VP/B) will not
boot up after the VAIO screen. The screen
display is fine for the VAIO screen but it'll stay
blank and not loading up XP.

I have tried letting the battery run out and boot
again and just connecting the AC power,
neither worked.

I also tried to boot the recovery CD, but not
working.

Several days ago, a problem started
developing with the sound. I did have blue
screen a few times within the last couple of
months saying some hard drive problem.

Many help is much appreciated!!!

Sounds like your drive could be toast. If that's the case you
should by a new one and run your recovery. If the recovery didn't
run before it could be a boot order issue in BIOS. When you first
turn it on if should say something like "F10 Setup" "F12 Boot
device". I'm not certain what it is on a Sony but start there.
