Do you pull the battery and then press the keys or do you put the battery in first and then hit the keys??

how I got my vaio working was while laptop is turned off, press assist button, keep pressed for a few seconds, next to power, and a recovery mode is there, just restart windows mine is windows 8.1 though

The exact same thing happened on my Sony Vaio. I managed to resolve it by taking out the battery and then continuously holding down the "SHIFT" and "F8" keys then pressing Start. I have no idea why it worked, but it did!

I've gone through all the steps but when I turn my laptop on, the screen still goes between Vaio loading and a black, blank page. Can someone help?

well, worked this temporarily, but did not solve the problem permanently. after weeks or two, it again showing the same black out screen on my sony vaio. I dont know this happen because I disabled the upgradation of both sony vaio and windows, but I am facing this problem again....
Sony Officials must look into this problem very seriously, lest I am thinking of scraping this machine

The problem is frequent with all laptops. Yours is accumulating to much "Flea" power which must be drained. Upgrades have nothing to do with the issue.

what does Flea mean here if up-gradation is nothing to do with sony vaio machines?

Not flea but flea power. It is the residual power accumulated in the circuits. It frequently happens in all laptops. When you take out the battery and cable, press and hold the power button, this drains the flea power.
