I got a new sony Vaio (Sony Vaio FS515H Pentium M 740) today and set about installing wondows xp professional. Everything was fine. Then I tried to instal a tv tuner but had to keep restarting.
Next I know the laptop loads up but freezes on the xp welcome screen. A grey box pops up saying an I/O operation has tried with the registry to flush out something but it cant get rid of it.
Basically the laptop loads up but i cant get past the welcome screen onto my desktop. Also sometimes it loads up with a check for consistency in the d drive.
Can anyone help please??? I've tried looking for the reset button but I cant find it anywhere and I didn't get a user manual either.
Please please help!!
