Unless you know someone that has it, the only way you can get it is through Sony. You can't get it as a download. The good news is they only charge US $17.95 so it is affordable. Here is a link to the recovery DVD ordering site for the RB42G...

Hi,

You can try to check if there is a partition on your hard drive where you can restore the original default software installed in the computer. And if your computer doesn't have that partition you can contact Sony and request for a copy of the recovery disc. If you have registered that computer the first time that you got it, you can request it and just pay the cost of shipping.

My Sony vaio vgc-rb42g when I turn on it says boot manger is compressed it says hit crl alt del to continu but goes back to same screen. Kids messed with it don't know wat happend


You will need a windows recovery disc, you can make one on any Windows Vista/7 computer

Windows Button > Control Panel > Backup and Restore > Create a system repair disc.

Boot to the recovery disc and type the following commands
compact /U C:\bootmgr
compact /U C:\ntldr

That should uncompress them.

I am trying to find the manual for this Board. D915GRO/d915PRO/D915gvro


The D915GRO is an Intel motherboard.
It is a bit unusual because it seems they were specifically made for Sony.
However, most of the information that applies to other Intel D915 motherboards applies to this one.

What type of hard drive goes in a VGC-RB42G.....SATA or PATA


Hi JG78 - If you bought the stock model of your PC it originally came with a SATA 250GB drive. SATA drives have a faster transfer rate so if your PC can handle it ( and it can ) then you definitely want to get a SATA drive. Make sure you back up any info,documents,pictures,etc on cd's or dvd's. Or when you install the new drive you can just make your old drive a secondary drive and transfer the info you need to save before you remove it. Also be sure you have all software and drivers you need before you install the new drive so you won't have the hassle of having to locate them later. If you need to download them you can put them on a cd so they'll be ready to go. If this answered your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help or assistance with this just add a comment and I'll be glad to give you a hand. Thanks.
