The originla state hides in a hidden partition on the OEM Hard drive. Reboot and keep tapping the F10 key continuously while it comes up. If you have the original HD drive installed (or reformatted a new one with the original help disk) you can re format and return to the out of the box state.

Remember this is a REFORMAT.. all your files will be lost and you will need to reinstall all your after market software and all the upgrades to XP etc.

Hi,

Holding zero is the method for restoring Toshiba computers. Sony Vaio should use F10. From there you can do a full system restore to factory defaults.

Hope that helps :)

    I just took a look at the sony we have on display (the perks of working at a tech store :-P ).

    As the computer is powering up just tap F10 (i usually tap about once per second), like you would with F8 to get into safemode. You should get the "Loading Windows Files" bar right away.

Start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically


If Startup repair is not working then use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix windows registry errors or restore windows to an earlier state:
Restore computer/ windows 7:
Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.Click on the System Restore program icon.
Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.Choose the restore point that you want to use.

Note: Check the Show more restore points checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows 7 created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows 7 changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
Click Next >.
Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.
Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.
Click Yes to the Once started, System Restore cannot be interrupted. Do you want to continue? dialog box.
System Restore will now restore Windows 7 to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose earlier.
Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
Immediately after logging in to Windows 7 after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.
Click Close.
Check to see if whatever Windows 7 problem you were troubleshooting has been corrected by this System Restore.
If the problem still persists, you can repeat the steps above and choose another restore point if one is available.
If this restoration caused a problem, you can always undo this particular System Restore.

Follow these instructions for reverting important Windows Vista files back to a previous state using System Restore:
Difficulty: EasyTime Required: Using System Restore to reverse system changes in Windows Vista usually takes several minutesHere's How:
Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
Click on the System Restore program icon.
Choose the Choose a different restore point radio button and then click Next >.
Note: The default choice is Recommended restore. This restore point is probably the most recent automatically created one and is likely the best choice. However, for purposes of demonstrating the entire System Restore process in Windows Vista, I'll be continuing with the longer process of choosing a restore point manually.
Choose the restore point that you want to use.
Note: Check the Show restore points older than 5 days checkbox to see more than the most recent restore points.
Note: Any restore points that you created, scheduled restore points that Windows Vista created, and those created automatically during the installation of certain programs will be listed here. You can not use System Restore to undo Windows Vista changes to a date that a restore point does not exist.
Click Next >.
Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
Note: Windows Vista will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before proceeding.
Important: System Restore will not revert any of your non-system files like documents, email, music, etc. to a previous state. These types files are completely unaffected by System Restore. If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.Click Yes to the Are you sure you want to continue? dialog box.
System Restore will now restore Windows Vista to the state that was recorded in the restore point you chose in Step 4.
Note: The System Restore process could take several minutes as you see the "Please wait while your Windows files and settings are being restored" message. Your computer will then reboot as normal when complete.
Immediately after logging in after the reboot, you should see a message that System Restore completed successfully.

i have reviewed your issue and read several articals in regards to this issue and it looks like it is common. I found one site that seemed to have the most details options and step by step instructions for different possibilities follow this link: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/63567-power-options-sleep-mode-problems.html
But prior to going into anything to technical, to me it sounds like it might be a software glitch with the operating system. In which case I would start by trying a system restore to a prior date when you know this issue was not happening.
System restore instructions are below:
Here's How:
  1. Navigate to the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  2. Click on the System Restore program icon.
  3. Click Next > on the Restore system files and settings window.
  4. Choose the restore point that you want to use.

  5. Click Next >.
  6. Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window to begin the System Restore.
    Note: Windows 7 will shut down to complete the System Restore so be sure to save any work you might have open in other programs before continuing.

If your intention with this tool was to recover a deleted non-system file, try using a file recovery program instead of System Restore.

You might try system restore option and restore it to a date you know it worked well
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.

System restore on a toshiba a105-2001


Tammie,

Do you have the Restore CD's? I think this is the only way to do a restore to "out of box state". You will need to put it in the cd drive and reboot the computer. Once it boots to the cd, follow the prompts to do a complete system restore. Please follow up with me should you require more help or if the steps above do not work.
