Hi,

My Sony VAIO laptop has black screen while start up. It only shows cursor and arrow. Nothing works.
When it starts it does show "VAIO" logo that disappears into a black screen.

I have tried taking battery out and pressing power button for 60 seconds - doesn't work.

Hey,

I pulled out battery, again placed it and pressed Shift + F8 buttons simultaneously along with power button and then I started hitting the F8 key. It worked for me!

Say "Thank you" 317

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?
Thank you thank you so so much I thought I had to go repair it about a year ago and I followed this and wow it works very very well thanks again
It worked. Thx
God bless you thanks a lot lots of love

Thank you
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.
Thank youuuu. It works for me as well !

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