Whatever do you mean by 'Reboot' ? You could try simply holding in the Power button for some seconds you know

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop wit windows vista ultimate, does anybody knows how to recovery this laptop?

Most Sony Vaio systems will have a VAIO recovery wizard. Create a Recovery Media Kit using this wizard and you’ll be able to create a set of CDs that will enable you to do a system recovery on your Sony VAIO machine.
If your PC does not have this feature, you can always call Sony at 1-800-488-SONY to have them send you the disks.

Once you have either created or ordered and received the CDs necessary to restore your Sony VAIO computer, you’ll need to place the first CD in the drive and reboot the machine. The recovery process will immediately begin when the system boots. If it does not begin, you may have to enter the BIOS of the computer to change the boot sequence to the CD ROM instead of the hard drive. To enter the BIOS, tap the F2 key numerous times when booting.

REMEMBER... when you use the recoery system, it will restore your computer to it's ORIGINAL configuration from the factory. All data and programs you have installed will be GONE!

How to reboot my sony vaio vgn-cs26t to original factory setting

insert the first recovery disk and simply reboot your computer. instead of loading windows you will be brought to a screen where you can set up your computer to be reformatted. if the computer boots windows instead you will need to change the boot order in the bios and set the cd rom drive first. this can be done by pressing a button or button combination while the computer is booting. pay attention because you onle have a few seconds. if all else fails call sony tech support and ask them how to change your boot order

Continus Rebooting

I just had to do this this morning. And now i am talking to you on my vaio. Start windows in safe mode and open the "run" box from the start menu. In the run box type msconfig. When the window pops up click on the startup tab and un-check any of the programs you do not need to start with windows. Let me know if this works for you or just if you need more help

I have a sony fx 210 i want to reboot there a disk? and if so where can i buy it

SONY might still sell original CD's for it, or see the VAIO parts

If this does not help, find a Windows CD and install, then go to the SONY website and download the drivers for your model to complete the installation with all features SONY offers.
