Hi guys, i will need ur help. My vaio suddenly don't startup win vista and my screen display is weird. First of all vaio logo has some differences, like my analyses display has low down. Next I have the same symbol all over the screen. It's like that " | ". In the end when windows are loading, I have green dots at the background and before shows up the login, my pc stuck and i can see only this annoying green dots. I can startup only in safe mode. I have thought a lot of cause, but i can't be sure. That's why i need ur help. What can i do? It's my graphic card problem, is my HDD , my BIOS or my OS?

Laptop?

Try attaching an external monitor

That will tell you if its screen problem or graphics chip problem

If it starts in safe mode could it be a driver problem.Maybe check device manager for any yellow exclamation marks.

Try boot in safe mode then use system restore to go back a few days to when it was working correctly
