I'm at wit's end. I have a Sony VAIO rx-860, and have XP as the O/S.
Here's the issue. I tried to start up my computer this morning with no luck. It goes straight to a black screen that says that a software or hardware glitch may be the problem why windows was unable to successfully start. I can choose from:
safe mode, safe mode w/ network...the whole list.
No matter what I choose, the Window's XP screen comes on as if it's going to boot and then right back to the black screen with the message to choose a setup mode. No matter what, I get this.
I tried to do a system recovery but it won't work. I did exactly as I'm supposed to but all I get is that black screen...even with the recovery disks in place.
