sony vaio laptop boot problems

By psycho_penguin_uk ·
I have a sony vaio laptop pcg-f305 runnig windows 98SE. I have fdisked it. Created 2 partitions and formated them both. I ran the restore disk. Windows started ok during the setup on the first boot. It will then just power down and appear to be off but the power light is still on. i have tried using a normal windows 98 and 98se CD. the same thing happens.

Any help will be great. thanx

Sony seems to be very problematic with their restore. Try removing all partitions and then try the restore. Supposedly the restore will create the necessary partitions if none are found.

Enjoy,

Disable all power management, such as standby, hibernate. With power light on you might want to connect an external monitor to make sure your not just losing your display on your LCD.
