If you give a bit of background it may make it easier for someone to help. I am going to turn it off. For win 7 I would recommend Microsoft security essentials, else Panda Cloud Antivirus Protection. Don't ask us to compare or recommend products. How do I get it to work? The monitor should flicker or light up. I took out the hard driver, put it on my other laptop, installed a new windows 8 on it, and put it back. I have the same problem and anything works!!! If it will not produce any display disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the built in display to the motherboard then try it again.
Can you still open Windows normally? Well, it worked for a couple of days then it started to have this balck screen problem at startup. Its not dead it just looks it. Use the right arrow key to increase the brightness. I imagine clearing or reflashing the bios would solve this but both have risks for users, maybe best to take it to a shop. If you shone the torch on it you could see the desk top vaguely in the background.
If you are using any antivirus program, I would suggest to switch to a cloud based since it users minimal resources of your laptop. Then I upgraded to Windows 8. Ensure that it is not turned all the way down. Can you please help me? Hi all- I have had the 'Black Screen' problem for weeks- got Vaio at start-up, but then went to Black Screen. I upgraded my ultrabook today from windows 8. If your monitor still is not showing display you should at least see lights on the computer to show that it is awake. Some users say that the Assist button does not work and a black screenappears even when the laptop is on.

I've done this before but totally forgot that it needs to be pressed from off I was pressing Assist at the splash screen instead. Am I royally screwed, or is there a way to salvage this situation? Its a bios issue, sending initial boot to an external screen is a configurable option on some laptops but not in the Sony bios however it appears to bug itself in there.
I didn't have something to save it on, so I waited 2 days while I ordered an external hard drive Today it only turns on and gets stuck in a failed automatic repair loop. But it came back as soon as we followed the same routine. Turn off the Microsoft Search Indexer service that grabs most of the processing. Keep all communication public, on the subreddit.

I had fixed mine on my own, please go through it to check if that helps on your model too according to win 8. Cant turn laptop off by holding power button, only by unplugging battery. Hi, Thanks for your response. If the Edit Boot Options window is displayed, press the Enter key. However after boot if you open the app, the service will start automatically 2. I have read many articles around the black screen problem in order to fix my black screen.
It worked for me at least the laptop booted and I am now backing up my files. Presumably you have an Assist Button and it does nothing. I turn it off and on again, and i still get the same thing.

When I Installed Windows 8 Pro. The thing is from the external screen the default option was start up repair so the computer would just sit there for 30 minutes and user got frustrated thinking nothing was happening and switched it off and restarted the cycle. Funnily enough I saw something similar today on a Vaio V series. Thanks in advance, Best regards pull the battery from the unit. I believe the problem was because of the 'fast boot option' feature in windows 8 which is on by default. The subreddit is only for support with tech issues.
