We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

This is the message i get with my PCV-RZ46G SONY VAIO, I have read simular problems pertaining to the above statement and mine is no exception, I have all the same problems, I was just wondering if someone could give me the step by step solution for this problem with my Sony?

I have the recovery disks that i was prompeted to make upon start-up of the computer at time of purchase.

If I do get my operating system to come back online, will i have lost all info not backed up or will it still be available?
Thanks, meritks

While starting your computer tap the F8 key once every second during the memory count up, or during the system spash screen where you see the system maker's name (HP, COMPAQ, DELL....etc.)

This will result in a text based menu. Use the curors/arrorw keys to navigate to SAFE MODE and hit enter.

Does the problem recur in safe mode?
