You can try running the installation/recovery disc that came with the computer or the built-in recovery system (if it has one) to try and repair the windows installation. The problem is if the computer is saying that the operating system is not found then critical files got deleted from something like a virus or the hard disc drive has stopped working. You may have to do a format and re-install of the windows OS.

Recovery partition cannot be found


If your Sony VAIO computer has been infected with a virus, its system files may be deleted or corrupted, which will cause system instability.


Depending on the type of virus or the specific files lost, you may not be able to manually fix the problem.


You can restore all of the system files back to their original condition and recover the operating system to its factory settings by using a hidden recovery partition on the VAIO


Click start control panel scroll to folder options view place a tick in show hidden files folders and drives.
This may vary depending on your operating system.



Close any programs that are currently open.

Transfer any files you want to keep from the Sony VAIO's hard drive to another source, such as a USB memory stick.


Disconnect any peripheral devices that are hooked up to the VAIO, such as a printer or network cable.

Open the "Start" menu and choose "Help and Support."


Click "Back Up & Recovery" and then navigate to "VAIO Recovery Center." Select "Launch VAIO Recovery Center."


Click "Restore Complete system" underneath the "Choose a Program" heading.

Click "OK" and follow the prompts to restore your Sony VAIO's system files back to their original condition.


hope this helps

Computer crashed


This is an operating system failure. You can try a system repair or reload with your recovery or operating system disc. Start with the repair, then the reload, if necessary. However, I've found that about 7 out of 10 times in a case like this, the hard drive has crashed and needs replaced. If you have any issues during or after the repiar/reload then it's the hard drive.
