Reinstall factory software on a new hdd

I have had to replace the hdd in my sony vaio notebook model# vgn-fz15g. I now want to reinstall my software from the system recovery disks I created previously, but when I start the recovery system it is looking for an existing installation to repair, which being a new drive obviously doesn't exist. Can you give me any suggestions to overcome my problem? I have tried the sony website but cannont get any information about my problem. regards Tony

    Don't have another windows vista operating system, don't think I should have to buy another one when the notebook came with an operating system.

    Have tried with xp but still doesn't work

Try installing a fresh installation of the OS and then run system recovery.

    not what i meant. Install a fresh operating system. Don't use rescue disks that you created. use a windows cd to install the os. if you don't have one, try buying from amazon, tigerdirect or staples.

Hi, own a Sony Vaio VGN P530H with hardisk Toshiba MK6028GAL damaged. as forced to replace unit, wonder could install a higher capacity? Brand & model if available please!!! thanks to all of you!!!


The VAIO VGN-T350 is a notebook computer designed and distributed by Sony.
The hard drive on your Sony VAIO VGN-T350, which is the unit that stores data, consists of many clusters of data that can be rewritten with new data.
If you are looking for a memory capacity upgrade, or if your old hard drive is having errors, it's time for an upgrade.
Upgrading the hard drive on your Sony VAIO will require the use of a screwdriver and will take you about 30 minutes to complete.

Turn off your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and remove the power cord and any other peripheral components.
Turn over your Sony VAIO VGN-T350 and locate the hard drive chamber on the bottom of your laptop. It will be clearly labeled.

Use the screwdriver to remove the screw holding the lid in place.
Gently lift the hard drive and its cage away from your laptop and disconnect the data cord.
Remove the four screws located at the corners, and then remove your old hard drive from its cage.
Place your new internal laptop hard drive into the cage and replace the screws.
Connect the data cord to your new hard drive and place your new hard drive into its chamber.
Close the lid and replace the screw to complete the operation.

I have Sony Vaio VGN-FZ15G motherboard working but have no display


First step is to hook it to an external monitor. If the monitor has signal, then you should be able to re-seat the video cable on the system board. If not, then something internal, like the motherboard, is defective.

Save Data if possible.

Use Restore System; Restore Computer to Factory "New" Condition.. Sont Vaios have a Key Prompt which you hold down while booting and the Replacement Software already on a Sector of the Hard Drive. Check THe Manuel for this OR CALL SONY CUSTOMER SERVICE AND JUST GIVE THEM THE MODEL NUMBER AND ASK THEM WHICH BUTTON YOU PUSH ETC TO RESTORE THE COMPUTER TO "FACTORY CONDITION"

Restoring my Sony Notebook to factory settings


Make new disks from the 60G HD before replacing it. If there is no restore partition then you will need to clone your old drive.
You need a HDD cloning software like Norton Ghost, a usb 2.5" drive enclosure.
