Sony PC won't boot, it will only display a black screen with a flashing cursor
Posted on 2010-09-24
I have a Sony VGC RC102 desktop PC and it won’t boot. When I start it the Sony splash displays and then all I get is a black screen with a white blinking cursor in the top left of the screen, there is no other boot information such as the memory count or BIOS version displayed. I have tried to do a repair of the Operating system using an XP disk, but after waiting a very long time for the CD to get to the ‘To setup Windows XP now’ screen, it finally tells me that no disks are present. This all sounds terminal to me, does anyone agree, or have any diagnostic procedures they feel I should try before I bin it?
