Sony Vaio PCG-7A2L cursor in top left hand co

April 18, 2011 at 08:29:48
Specs: Windows XP
When power up, the Vaio screen will appear but then goes to cursor in top left corner of screen. I have tried recovery disc but an message of "Cannot determine partition settings." appears. That as far I as I can get. Is there online software I can download to solve this problem?

Check your hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostics.
See the latter part of response 1 in this:

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can get a CD image diagnostic utility from most hard drive manufacturer's web sites, but obviously you would need to make a burned CD, preferably a CD-R for best compatibility, on another computer if you need to.


Seagate's Seatools will test any brand of hard drive.
Do the long test.

The bootable Dos versions of SeaTools can be used even if Windows is not working properly.

If the hard drive itself tests okay, any data problems found can be fixed, one way or another.
