I turned on my Sony Vaio PCG-V505 and it brought up the Sony screen and says F12 for network boot, but will not go any farther. i have left it there for about four hours and it never changed. If I hit Esc it goes to a blank screen with a blinking cursor at the top and will not go any farther. Any ideas as to what is going on?

Sound like the laptop is trying to detect a device that is faulty.

This is common with bad hard drives. If you can, remove the hard drive from the unit and power it back on and see if it goes past the sony logo screen.

Had a similar problem with an Emachine T3256 and I tried removing the hard drive and it worked. I was searching with google and after many false leads I found this forum and you took care of the issueThanks for the information.
