You will need a windows recovery disc, you can make one on any Windows Vista/7 computer

Windows Button > Control Panel > Backup and Restore > Create a system repair disc.

Boot to the recovery disc and type the following commands
compact /U C:\bootmgr
compact /U C:\ntldr

That should uncompress them.

SOURCE: What type of hard drive goes in a VGC-RB42G.....SATA or PATA

Hi JG78 - If you bought the stock model of your PC it originally came with a SATA 250GB drive. SATA drives have a faster transfer rate so if your PC can handle it ( and it can ) then you definitely want to get a SATA drive. Make sure you back up any info,documents,pictures,etc on cd's or dvd's. Or when you install the new drive you can just make your old drive a secondary drive and transfer the info you need to save before you remove it. Also be sure you have all software and drivers you need before you install the new drive so you won't have the hassle of having to locate them later. If you need to download them you can put them on a cd so they'll be ready to go. If this answered your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help or assistance with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to give you a hand. Thanks.

Jeff

SOURCE: need tv and dvd decoder for sony vaio vgc-rb42g

After I opened the case to clean all the dust out and closed it up again when I tried to start it up again I had a blinking green light on the power supply and the computer would not start up. I found an exact power supply online and after installing the green light was on steady and the computer fired right up so this time the blinking light indicated a bad power supply. My computer GURU told me it was just a coincidence that the failure happened at the time that I decided to clean up the tower.

SOURCE: I need the recovery software to fix my PC Sony

Unless you know someone that has it, the only way you can get it is through Sony. You can't get it as a download. The good news is they only charge US $17.95 so it is affordable. Here is a link to the recovery DVD ordering site for the RB42G...

I am trying to find the manual for this Board. D915GRO/d915PRO/D915gvro


The D915GRO is an Intel motherboard.
It is a bit unusual because it seems they were specifically made for Sony.
However, most of the information that applies to other Intel D915 motherboards applies to this one.
