Sony Vaio flashing yellow light

I have a Sony Vaio which has a problem in which the laptop will often not show a display when it is turned on. There is a flashing yellow light below the cylindtical symbol next to the battery light. Any idea what the cylindrical symbol means and why it caused my laptop to show a display?

Look in your owners manual for what it does.

Unfortunately I'm not sure where it is and I haven't been able to find anything on Google which helps

cylindrical symbol is hard drive flashes as it is being accessed as machine is booting up.

Okay cheers. Does this mean I need to repair/replace my hard drive?

If the terminology displayed in your question is a indication of your knowledge of the operational parts of a Computer, I would take it to trusted repairer, if it is not booting sucessfully
