if it has a recovery partition ..just press f11 on start and start to reinstall from it (completely ) ..if it is not working try from boot menu ..(press f12 on start 0 ..and in the menu choose recovery partition . In case you do not have such partition .try from a recovery disk if you have ..or if this is not available too ..try to use a boot-able disk with a operation system image on it ..and reinstall it .. To do so ..you need to download an image of the OS , after that burn it on the disk using a image burner ..and end up with a boot-able disk .. Insert the disk and restart ...press f12 to bring up the boot menu ..select CD /DVD drive and enter ..it will boot from the disk and ask you to press any key to confirm ..After that will start loading files and go on with the process of installing windows. Good luck !
I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.
After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.
Remove the disk-drive from the laptop, and connect it to another computer.
Copy all the files from the recovery-media onto the disk-drive.
Reinstall the disk-drive into your laptop.
Run the recovery software from where you copied the files onto the disk-drive.
Unless you're familiar with Microsoft diagnostics and XP Recovery Console, I think that the quickest way to solve the problem is to use the XP CD and perform a "repair installation". Beware that the supplied CD disk is indeed an installation CD and not a "wipeout and reinstall" disk (many recovery disks are programmed like this, and using them will make you LOSE any personal data in the laptop!). If it is, you'll have to boot using a backup LiveCD (e.g. UBCD, http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/, or XP Rescue), backup the data on an external USB unit, and then do the recovery. On the plus side, this procedure is much more thorough than Windows' repair install. On the minus side, you'll have to reinstall any programs and customizations.
Try, however, to boot with UBCD and check the disk is intact first thing. It might also be a more easily solvable problem, after all.
You windows installation got corupted . The only solution for this is to reinstall the operating system. U can do it from Sony recovery disk or from Independent disks of your own( in this case customized sony softwares will be lost). If u are pointing towards a memory dump which is a common problem in Vista then u can log in once and right click my computer and then go to advanced tab then from there go to start up and recovery at there u can deactivate the memory dump
Hi, The hard drive has failed. You can try to boot from the installation
disk and do an OS repair. This will not lose you data. If you do an OS
reinstall, you will lose everything.
Even if you get a new drive (is it still under warranty?), you may
not be able to recover the data using an external drive enclosure. If
it's under warranty, you will be able to get a replacement drive
containing the OS. If not, you will need to buy a drive and install the
OS from the install disk. Then buy the external drive enclosure (not
expensive), install the old drive and try to recover your files. If it
won't cooperate, some people have been successful by freezing the drive
for a while, thawing and trying to recover. Using a commercial data
recovery company to get your info off the drive will cost as much as a
you have to fix error on harddisk. If you have winrecovery disk you can boot your computer with winxp recovery disk then boot computer with recovery disk then type in recovery console prompt "chkdsk /r" then pres "y" then it fix error on harddisk.
