Sony Vaio laptop will not load

  suburban train 17:56 28 Nov 10


I have a sony laptop that is running on Windows 7 which will not load.

The problem appears to be when you swtich on you get a black blank screen with the cursor flasing in the top left corner.

I have tried using Sony's recovery centre which just appears to format the c drive but when it does a restart it goes back to the blank screen.

I have been intouch with Sony and they have sent 5 recovery disks which still do not work.

Any ideas?

Remove refit hard drive to remake connections

try booting with one stick of RAM at a time (to check for bad memory modules
