Question about Sony VAIO VGN-NR498E/S Notebook PC
I tried to reformat my laptop and I am getting error 320 and 350 when 95%finished.
Sounds to me that the software you are using is corrupt and if that is the case the only solution is to rebuild the OS by using a CD. This isn't uncommon, if their is a bad sector on the Hard Drive this can cause the software to error and become corrupt. A full reformat and installation is the only solution if the software is corrupt.
Hope that helps,

Did anyone come up with a solution? I'm getting the same error and I AM using the recovery disks from Sony.
It will reformat the hard drive, reinstall the software and get almost done... then error 320 or 330.
I thought I read somewhere that it was a optical drive issue so I used a USB optical drive with the same results.

Tips for a great answer:
A persistent operating system error on your Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop requires more than just a system restore as there is a problem with a driver that a system restore cannot correct.
A full factory reset of the laptop wipes the hard drive clear of all data including existing driver settings and programs and installs the original operating system back to the hard drive.
Once cleared, previous computer files and programs are non-recoverable.
Press "Power" on the Inspiron 1525, and continuously press "F8" on the keyboard when the Dell logo appears on the laptop's screen.
Press the down arrow to highlight "Repair Your Computer," and press "Enter" to select the highlighted onscreen option.
Click your preferred keyboard layout, and click "Next" to continue with the laptop's restoration process.
Type "administrator" in the username field, click "OK" and click "Dell Factory Tools."
Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and click "Next." Click the checkbox next to the hard drive reformat confirmation, and click "Next."
Click "Finish" to reboot the OS after the restore process finishes, which can take up to 10 minutes.
Hope this helps.
