Do you have the OEM Windows CD with Key Code numbers? If yes and there is nothing on the hard drive you want to save you could try a clean install. Go to set-up and make CD-ROM drive the first boot device and install a new OS. Sometimes with Windows this is the easiest thing to do. I see this recovery/restore stuff leaves a lot to be desired. In other words, it doesn't seem to work half the time.

Her machine may have a hidden partition on the hard drive that will restore the system to factory condition, without wiping out her data. Read the following carefully (PDF document).

Starts on page 16 of the PDF.

Look at "Standard Recovery" and "Recovery Image" (page 17)

Page 20 has "Starting PC Recovery if the PC is not responding".

Restart your Sony Vaio if it is already on. If it's off, turn it on
  • Press the F12 key on your Sony Vaio keyboard. This will enter the computer into the built-in restore mode. Note that depending on the model of Sony Vaio, you may have to press either the F11 key or the ESC key to enter this restore mode. This must be done before your operating system begins to load. If you see the Windows logo appear on screen, you'll have to restart and try again.

  • Choose the option on screen that is most appropriate to your needs. You will be presented with three options: you can either create a set of recovery discs, attempt to repair your operating system's installation, or restore your operating system. Repairing your operating system will attempt to fix your computer without deleting any of your personal files. Restoring your operating system will delete everything on your hard drive and return your computer to its original factory settings.

  • Wait for the restore process to complete. Depending on the type of restore you've tried, you may have to wait as little as a few minutes and as much as an hour or more. When the process is finished, the computer will automatically restart itselff

    It went to welcome screen and after i typed in my password, got a black screen that says insert disk and press F1 or press F2 and something about setup.


    This happens whenever one closes any installation prematurely. Insert the disk then properly cancel or complete the setup and restart the computer you wont get this message.

    Compaq presario system recovery


    Hi,

    When the initial blue HP screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a recovery menu appears. The progress indicator that first appears does not indicate that a recovery is taking place. The progress indicator represents the time before the recovery process is started.

    When the Recovery screen appears, click Next, and then click Yes to perform a normal, non-destructive recovery.

    To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced, and then click Yes.



    CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.

    After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.


    NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over an hour, depending on the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (Like My Documents and the Desktop.

    Note:Dont foregt to backup your important files/documents.
    Hope this helps !
    Thanks..
