Question about Computers & Internet
I PURCHASED A USED VAIO DESKTOP ABOUT A YEAR AGO, MODEL # PCV-RX951. I WAS TOLD THAT THE DISK HAD BEEN THROWN AWAY BUT THE RECOVERY PARTITION WAS STILL IN TACT. WELL, THE PARTITION HAD BEEN FORMATTED AND WINDOWS REINSTALLED AND THE RECOVERY DISK WERE NEVER USED IN THE REINSTALL PROCESS SO AS ANY SONY PC OWNER KNOWS IT NEVER WORKED PROPERLY FROM THAT TIME ON. I AM WONDERING IF SOMEONE OUT THERE COULD PLEASE LEND ME A HAND IN FINDING A COPY OF THE DISKS. SONY NO LONGER HAS THEM AVAILABLE. AND I HAVE ORDERED FROM TWO DIFFERENT COMPANIES WHO CLAIMED TO BE PROVIDING WHAT I NEEDED, BUT ONE SOLD ME THE WRONG DISK SET AND THE OTHER SOLD ME A COPY OF WINDOWS XP WITH THE DRIVERS YOU CAN DOWNLOAD FROM SONY'S WEBSITE FOR MY PARTICULAR MODEL. GUESS THEY DONT KNOW ABOUT ALL THE PROPRIATARY SOFTWARE THAT SONY PUTS ON THE MACHINES BESIDES WINDOWS AND THE HARDWARE DRIVERS. ARGH!! ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS
You can load the Windows XP on your computer, and then download the drivers from Sony's site. As far as additional software is concerned you may want to try this site:
I hope this helps,
