Startup and shut down problems on Sony VGN-AR51SU laptop with Vista Ultimate

I have a Sony VGN-AR51SU laptop which has Vista Ultimate preloaded when it was purchased. The windows product key is noted on the underside of the computer.

The computer is configured to close, either by closing the lid or will the icon start then shut down. I don't remember which option I used to shut down the computer.
However when I press the power button the computer immediately emits three short beeps. The hard disk icon flashes as if it is starting, but the LCD display remains black and never even a blue screen comes. Devices powered by the computer the light upward.
Eventuallu the hard drive icon will stop blinking.
When I put the cover towards the bottom of the computer behaves as if it ends and all devices close but the power of the computer remains on, regardless whether I am with the main power or battery.
Obviously I can not use the starting/closing track that I have a black screen.
I tried all the options to remove lead AC and battery close and all devices, then re-boot just on AC power or battery or any combination of these options, etc etc etc and nothing makes a little difference.
I keep my system and software updated and this problem was one of sudden nature IE. OK one day then the problem the next time I turned on the computer.
Make three short beeps on start uo and the fact that the screen remains black gives a clue as to the problem?

  • Windows 10 sleep and shut down problem bootcamp

    Hi can you please help me

    I am running windows 10 pro 64-bit os, generation 10586.71 on my I mac end 2012 27 inches

    When I stopped my connected USB device which has a led indicator remains steady. I think it means that it is not turned off properly. To stop it completely, I have to hold the power button after.

    Also when I put my mac to sleep, when I move the mouse or press any key on the keyboard, the screen comes on. Do I have to do is press the power button. Also when I do this, I hear the fans turn on, but I'm not sure if this is normal or not.

    However, when I click on restart, which normally occurs

    There is also another concern

    When I turn on my mac, when it is activated at startup of windows by default, until I see the windows logo, I see a black screen and at the top left a flashing dashboard white, similar to when your terminal on windows. It then goes on the windows logo.

    After that, he goes on the screen to login as usual, but even here, I have to wait for my mouse to connect, if I have no idea if this is a common problem

    so once I have connected until I see the Office for a PIN second I see an orange please wait screen, I don't think color matters as it used to be blue when my windows theme was blue until I customized it to orange

    even when I see the windows logo after the black screen with the dashboard, here the scroll wheel has lagged.

    and when I turn on my computer it sometimes takes quite a long time to go in the logon menu. and a few days ago I received an error message saying that I had to restart.

    I had windows 10 on boot camp on Monday, January 18, 2016, so about two weeks ago.

    Windows Fresh 8 upgrade from fresh Windows 7

    Hello

    I've been using Boot Camp for several months, running Windows 7 on my Mac. I need extend partition, so I decided to uninstall the Windows 7 partition (using Boot Camp on a Mac), then reinstall Windows 7 on a freshly prepared partition. Who had finished I immediately upgraded to Windows 8.

    I installed the Boot Camp of support software, and as far as I can tell all my drivers are up to date.

    However, every time I restart or shut down the computer, I get a BSOD with Kernel_security_check_failure. I tried to study it using WinDbg, but all this can point to what is NTKRNLMP.exe which shows that it is caused by something else, and it is not clear what.

    I tried to go through this process twice, so I'm on my second fresh install in Windows 8 now.

    There is no other problems at all on Mac or Windows, it is not never failed except when it restarts.

    I ran a memtest with no problems found.

    I have about this problem over the past months, I have been using Windows 7

    The only time I saw it crash not was when it was connected to an external monitor which leads me to believe it's a problem with the display driver. I tried all the drivers from the Boot Camp, Windows update software and update the Intel utility display and none of them solve the problem.

    Any help or this point troubleshooting tips would be MUCH appreciated and I would be interested to hear if someone has the same problems.

    Thank you!

    I appreciated all the help,

    Hello

    Error code 10 is issued when the operating system knows exactly what went wrong. The result of this error is a hardware failure. Sometimes, it might be due to viruses, to which you can scan your system and take off from these infections. But the most likely reason would be some registry errors. You can use the registry scanning software to run a test on the box and they can automatically correct the error.

  • Fingerprint reader HP HDX16 and two other drivers not detected after an upgrade to Vista Ultimate.

    Hello.

    Recently, I upgraded my HP Windows Vista Home Edition of Windows Vista Ultimate Edition HDX16 model (quite a 'new installation' upgrade.) Since then I've been doing a handful of drivers went unnoticed in the Device Manager. Keep in mind that the unpacking, all devices in the computer worked as it should.

    I downloaded all the drivers on the site of HP drivers, and these drivers are not detected. This led me to the relization that I might have to do a destructive reinstall of my OS, back to Vista Home edition. This would make Vista Ultimate completely a waste. Very restless indeed. I contacted a representitve HP, and he identified my problem: drivers preinstalled on the computer are adapted to the Windows Vista Home delivered pre-installed on my computer. However, he could not help me solve the problem.

    As a last resort, I tried a program called Driver Genius for backing up the computer a friend (who purched the same exact model, with Vista Ultimate pre installed,) drivers. This corrected a lot of the unknown devices, but I'm still left with three unknowns. I'm quite positive that one is the fingerprint reader. He refuses to be detected on start-up, and what is installing digital persona personal.

    Here is the run down on the three unknowns:

    1.

    Manufacturer: unknown

    Location: On bridge PCI standard ISA

    2.

    Manufacturer: unknown

    Location: On the Microsoft ACPI-complaints system

    3.

    Manufacturer: unknown

    Location: Port_ #0001.Hub_ #0005

    I tried to install DigitalPersona.

    I tried to reinstall Digital Persona.

    I tried to repair Digital Persona.

    I tried to perform a clean installation of Digital Persona (uninstall, reboot, reinstall).

    I tried to reinstall Windows Vista Ultimate.

    I tried to get the drivers from the same model of computer (with pre-ultimate isntalled.)

    Identifying them all help to detect / detection / providing information about where to install the drivers would be a great help.

    Thanks in advance if you think you can save me from downgrading back to home.

  • I have a laptop with Vista Home Premium installed. My plan is to install Win 7 and then move on to Win 10.

    Original title: Vista to Win 7 to win 10

    I have a laptop with Vista Home Premium installed.  My plan is to install Win 7 and then move on to Win 10.  I have a new full version of Windows 7 Pro SP1 with an activation key.  I have experience update to Win 10 of Win 7, but worry about the installation of Win 7 over Vista.  I guess I have to do a clean install.  There is no problem to meet the minimum requirements of 10.  Can someone give me some advice on the start-up of the conversion of Win 7?  Just insert the disk?  Everything has been backed up and it's ready to go!  Thank you.

    Since the family migration to Windows Vista Premium to Windows 7 Professional it will install a clean place, why not simply use your Windows 7 Professional product key to perform a custom Windows 10 Pro install from the go?

  • Hello I have a SanDisk micro SDHC 8 GB card and an adapter. I have an Acer laptop with a SD card slot.

    Hello I have a SanDisk micro SDHC 8 GB card and an adapter. I have an Acer laptop with a SD card slot.
    My problem is when I put the micro SDHC into the adapter and then put the card into the slot on the laptop, nothing does appear in 'My computer', so the electronics card has not been read.
     
    Anyone know how to make a SDHC card appear in Windows 7
     
    Thanks a lot for your help

    The problem is not Windows 7, this is the card reader in your Acer laptop.  It must be able to read SDHC cards.  This is different from an SD card. Ancient readers SD do not read SDHC cards - they are incompatible with older players.

  • Fan and shut down

    Hello guys,.

    When I play video games, the fan is very loud, and when I leave the game, the Mac is running more slowly than usual for about the first five minutes. If I want to stop immediately after leaving the game, I let my Mac cool before shutting down, or can I simply arrested him while the fan still work very hard?

    The reason for my question is that I am curious to know if it is "unhealthy" for the Mac to go from 100 to 0 just like that instead of let go from 100 to 0 and then stopping.

    Thank you in advance!

    Kind regards

    There is the thermal shutdown circuits in the MBP that prevents the MBP to destroy oneself against excessive heat.  It makes no significant difference when you turn it off.
