  2. Make sure only the AC adapter is connected and turn on the computer.
  3. Click the Start button, click All Programs , click Accessories , and then click Run .
  4. In the Run window, type MSCONFIG and then press the Enter key.

    Laptop: Sony Vaio Serial Tag: C3LRMD7Q Model: PCG7133L Need information for recovery disks for the foremention laptop. The OS is Windows VISTA Home Premiun.


    The VAIO Model VGN-NR498E/S is shipped with Recovery partition in the hard drive. It is required to create the recovery discs as soon as you get the notebook. Using either recovery discs or the recovery center you can reinstall the preinstalled OS in the computer. But, it depends if you has changed the preinstalled OS, the recovery partition will be erased and no longer be accessible.

    However, in your case, if you not made any changes to the preinstalled OS, restart the computer and press and hold the F10 key. this will launch the recovery tools. On the next screen, press Enter key. Then you will be able to view options such as "Restore C Drive", "System Restore" etc. There select "Restore C Drive" to reinstall the preinstalled Vista OS in the Computer.

    If you have changed the preinstalled OS in the computer, then it is requires to purchase the recovery discs from Sony's parts center:

    The above part is no longer available with them However, you can use the part #Y8318272A to search for the recovery discs with online retailers and others.

    My Sony Vaio VGN-NR498E laptop with Windows Vista recently had some issues. The light in the screen seems to have went out. If you hold a lamp up to the screen you can make out the background of the screen...

    A dim laptop lcd screen is either the result of 1) a faulty inverter which is a separate piece from the lcd screen or 2) a burned out backlight which is part of the lcd screen. In the majority of instances, the inverter is the cause of the problem and not the backlight as most people tend to assume and therefore does not require the purchase of a lcd screen.
    I have done some research and it seems you can fetch a new inverter for around $59.00

    My laptop left mouse button has stopped working

    Common hardware problem. The correct solution is a replacement tracker pad and mouse, however you may be able to get the problem fixed by cleaning under the pad. Either way it requires taking the laptop apart.
