    You need the Sony restore disks for your model laptop.

    I do not believe they include them by default with their laptops, but they normally include software to create the restore disks yourself. Unfortunately this requires your current hard drive to be working.

    If you have not already performed the disk creation, you're only other option is to contact sony for a system restore disk. There is normally a small charge. I think their number is: 1-800-488-SONY

    Unfortunately it requires itsme

My sony vaio freezes at the sony screen during boot

Most likely a hard drive problem but could be a number of things. Try pressing tab or escape when it freezes and see if the screen switches and gives more information. If you are able, remove the hard drive and try booting again. (the cd/dvd drive could also cause this so try removing that if possible)
