Sony's VAIO laptops run the Windows operating system, which has a special boot mode called Safe Mode. Safe Mode boots the Windows operating system in a limited state, disabling all unnecessary and non-critical drivers, services and programs. This is helpful in troubleshooting operating system issues like virus infections, fixing program incompatibilities or restoring the computer back to a working state.
