    Yes, I know I need to rebuild the HDD. My question is where can I get a set of recovery disks? The model is not even listed under Sony anymore and it's only a few years old??

    You must have received them at the time of purchase of Desktop. Is not it?

If you have replaced HDD of your machine, then there is no otherway to get your things back rather than installing them. If you have CDs from Sony, then you are safe.

Adding more hard space


If you are running out of hard disk space you need to do disk maintenance to recover lost disk space.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

If you still need more disk space you can add another hard disk to your computer as a slave hard drive. You can move your data to this new hard drive and free up disk space on your C Drive.

Help, I have an Sony PCV-RX360DC running Windows ME. It is not booting up. It is giving me "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key when ready". This computer has been in storage...


It's possible the hard drive may of died. Try loading the recovery CD and see what happens. Also, check your bios to make sure it's seeing your hard drive. If it's not seeing your hard drive then it definitely died.

Sony Vaio desktop will not load windows


what your describing is a hard disk failure the computer cant or wont read the hard disk to boot the machine, so it shuts down. Sounds like the hard disk died from a bad virus. and the computer wont run. Best I can do for you is either format the Hard disk and reinstall the operating system or buy a new hard disk. Cheers
