Another option may be to insert a Password and allow the system to run for a short amount of time once you reach the password entry screen. I've found on a lot of XP machines that they need a break on loading to properly install all the files.

It seems as if the loading is working faster than the HDD can be read and you get all sorts of error messages on different computers at the opening of Windows so if you allow them a short break of around 30 seconds the problem has always rectified itself from previous experience.

But as I've never actually used a Sony VAIO you may need to tinker with the delay to see if things load properly a good idea is to wait for the HDD LED activity to go out and then press enter after typing in the password.

The easiest way to eliminate the problem would be to reinstall the newest final version of yahoo messenger and not any BETA.
