My Sony vaio laptop has black screen on start up.
It shows cursor arrow only . Nothing works.
When it starts it does show "vaio" logo that disappears into a black screen.
Somebody help please!!!!
I have tried taking battery out and pressing power button for 60 seconds - doesn't work
Crtl+Alt delete doesn't work
It happened when I added a new account to windows 8 and I deleted the former one.

Hello Klajalali,

What is your operating system ?

Is it the same in "safe mode" ?
--> To start in "safe mode", you can see here :

If you can start in safe mode, try to "Restore the system to a previous date"
--> To "Restore the system to a previous date", see here :

Have you the installation CD ?

Hi, Thanks for your response. nothing was working. I couldn't get in safe mode. just black screen .non of F keys were working. anyway I fixed it. this is how...

I took out the hard driver, put it on my other laptop, installed a new windows 8 on it, and put it back. so I just saved money, time and my new laptop. I believe the problem was because of the 'fast boot option' feature in windows 8 which is on by default. I am going to turn it off. Thanks again for your help

I managed to start the computer by press Window + R during start up. The screen prompted that 'Fast Boot option' was temporary disable. Then I turn off the 'fast boot option' feature in windows 8.1. Every thing back to normal without reinstallation.
