Sony N21E laptop hangs on startup issue

  alpeshxp 11:20 03 Feb 2008

Have a sony n21ew running Vista, its developed a problem whereby on start up it hangs and freezes upon which I have to depress the off button to reboot. When I do this it then goes into "Computer didnt shutdown do you want to repair..." and when I chose this option it sometimes goes through repair procedure ok and boots up into vista w/o any problem. Other time it gives me a blue screen with differing messages each time. Ive tried troubleshooting the messages through google (I changed memory modules to new ones, plus no new hardware software changes have been made & no errors show under device manager) but problem still exists. Once it boots into Vista it runs fine and doesnt give any probs, however the above procedure to startup machine takes five mins each time and is very frustrating. Anyone have any idea what the source of problem could be.
