I lost my recovery disk or restore disk for my sony vaio VGN-FE660G. If anyone could direct me in the right direction to get them.


There are no System Recovery CDs included with the computer. The recovery data required to return the computer to the original, factory-installed condition is included on a special partition of the hard drive. Follow this procedure to create the Recovery Media Kit (a set of Recovery Discs), which can be used to restore the recovery partition and return the computer to the original, factory-installed condition.
  1. Ensure all open programs are closed.
  2. Ensure all network connections are disconnected.
  3. Ensure all peripheral devices are disconnected.
  4. From within the VAIO Recovery Wizard application, in the Create Recovery Discs window, click Next.
  5. Under Create Recovery Discs (Step 1 of 3), click to select the option to use either DVD or CD media.
  6. Click the Next button.
  7. At the Insert a blank... dialog box, insert the appropriate disc.
  8. Click the OK button.
  9. Insert a new disc when necessary as instructed.
  10. When all the disks have been created, click the Finish button.

Recovery dvd


Sony does not offer the recovery dvd for download. You can actually burn yourself a repair disc, which you then can use to reinstall the OS.
Just follow the instructions here http://www.istartedsomething.com/20070929/vista-sp1-recovery-disc/ for your project.
But don't forget to back up your personal data first, otherwise it will be lost for good.

Windows xp backup discs for sony VGN-FE770G notebook


call sony and tell them to send you *their* disks. they have them, and may charge you a small fee for the cd's and shipping. HP had a similar problem, but cd-s through snail mail should fix the problem.
