Turn it on, and keep tapping the F8 key.

Should bring up a boot menu, from there, try Last Known Good Configuration.

I must say its a nice change being called a computer genius instead of a computer geek
Agreed with Conorrr (vista repair disk could be the original install disk, but if its a vaio you possibly don't have one).

OK, do the F8 thing again, and start using Safe Mode.

When in Windows, hit Start>All Programs>Accessories>System and select System Restore.

Try restoring back to a date prior to your issues.
