How to do full system recovery for my sony vaio PCG-4JBP? thk u


Not sure what you mean when you say "full system recovery" but the operating system will have system restore points that you can access from the control panels system protection option. If you want to perform a factory default reset, start up the laptop and then look out for options that can be accessed by pressing one of the number function (Fn) keys. I believe the Vaio range comes with an option to restore the laptop back to it's shipped factory defaults, the interface is reliable and did a great job when I restored a Vaio VGN-NW20EF, came out like new!

Hi,

Unfortunately, there is no reset button in this model. If you want to restore the factory settings in the computer, please perform a system recovery using the recovery partition or the recovery discs.

Thanks!!!!

  • Restart your Sony Vaio computer.

  • Press the "F2" key to enter the BIOS.

  • Use the arrow keys to highlight the "Load BIOS Defaults" menu option. Select it by pressing "Enter."
  • Highlight "Load BIOS Defaults" again and hit "Enter." This will reset all of the settings of your Vaio's BIOS back to their original factory defaults. You can now select "Save Changes and Exit" to exit the BIOS.

    I have a hp notebook and need to reset it to its factory settings, i dont have an external disc drive so cannot use recovery discs, how do i reset it or what button do i need to press


    Most of the HP laptops have inbuilt recovery partition. We need to create recovery discs using this partition. We can even restore the notebook to factory settings using recovery manager.
    Even the sony laptops have inbuilt recovery partitions.

    not too sure what you mean here.you can reset bios to default or can set bios to factory reset.to set default ...when you turn on pc ,message at bottom left hand screen indicates which key to press to enter setup(bios setup) note...its very brief;mines f 10 for instance.at startup press this key and select load default then select save settings and exit;then ur pc restarts with default settings.
    To reset bios to factory requires disassembly.
    you locate rtc and remove battery(looks like large watch battery)for 5 minutes then replace,reassemble and restart pc.you dont need to know what rtc means(real time clock)or what it looks like cos the battery is right next to it.
