|Had big problems with Sony Vaio and decided to do clean install of XP. During the procedure - after everything had been wiped - at the point where it was trying to copy the installation files to the newly formatted partition, something went horribly wrong! It couldn't read a lot of the files from the disc and to cut a long story short I ended up having to abort the installation.|
Now when I turn the laptop on I just get a black screen with a flashing white line in the top left hand corner. If I put a disc in it does nothing so I suppose it just doesn't have anything in it to tell it what to do.
I have a XP disc, Sony Application Recovery CD and Sony System recovery CD - nothing works.
This is an old machine and I was only trying to clean it up for a friend for occasional use. Can anyone help me to get it working? I'm not an expert and I just hope I haven't done something that can't be fixed.
ps I dont even know how I can get to the BIOS settings because before the screen flashed SONY but doesn´t now
