Not sure if you want to format or reinstall, if you insert your cd and reboot you will have the option to reinstall it will save old windows but you will loose all your old files any pictures and stuff. You will also have the option to format and loose everything, even your old windows settings

Sony desktop vaio computer keeps saying missing operating system


Your operating system is currupted. You will need to repair it or restore it, if your sony desktop came with a recovery/repair cd. If it did, insert the disc, turn on the computer, set boot priority either in your bios (boot options) or the startup screen to dvd/cd rom, and follow instruction. If it didn't come with a recovery/restore disc, you are in trouble, and will need a full windows installation via a windows operating disc.

I want to formate my system how can i do it instruct me...and will my genune copy of windows be tutelly removed


First of all, no your windows operating system key would not be removed because your hardware is already register to your computer. Yes by formatting your computer, you will loose everything and every single files, including the o.s. If you want to format and You want to restore your computer to factory setting, you will need to make a restore/recovery disk provide in the acer management program. You will see a option for making a backup disk in the acer management software in the start menua via all programs. After making this disc, save all the files that you want like pic,music,video,doc to an external harddrive. Insert disc or simply leave disc, Turn of you computer, setup your bios to boot from cd/dvd-disc in the bios boot menu. (should see this option when starting up the first few second, maybe a F key or DEl key to get you into the bios menu or A key saying boot option) Set your boot prority to cd/dvd. The Acer recovery program will come on and follow direction. If you just want to format everything and not making a recovery/restore disk (which I would not recommend unless you bought another windows operating system disc). Then just click my computer and locate your harddrive, Right click, format, you should be good to go. You will loose everything.

How do i format my laptop sony ns-series completely because it got spyware virus in it and i want to format it completely. thanks


Hi,

The computer is supplied with a recovery partition in the hard drive. You can use the same to restore the computer back to factory settings. Please restart the computer and then press and hold F10 key to access the recovery partition. Once you access the same, please select "Restore C Drive" to perform a System Recovery.

As you have mentioned that the computer is infected by virus, there is a possibility that System Recover using the above method may not eradicate all the virus. In that situation a "Complete System Recovery" will be required. To perform a Complete System Recovery, you need the recovery discs. If you have created the recovery discs before, then you can use the same to perform a complete system recovery.

Else you can purchase the recovery discs from the below link:

https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/shoppingCart.do?operation=addToCart&itemId=679907&searchOperation=partSearch&searchText=Y8318687A

It is required to purchase the recovery discs only if the first step didn't resolve the issue. I'm providing the second options as additional information.

Hope this helps.

Thanks!!!!

I need to find a recovery disk so that I can reformat my laptop. There are just too many problems to deal with one issue at a time. Where can I find or order a recovery disk?


you cannot find recovery disk for your computer any where in internet.... if you need a recovery disc, you need to create one....
in order to format your computer i recommend you to format your computer using the operating system cd that came along with the computer.... if you dont have that cd you can use any of your friends disc....
just entirely format your computer, and re install a fresh copy of operating system....all your OS problems will get solved.... once you are done, you might be required to install the drivers for the devices like audio,card reader,wifi,bluetooth etc...seperately... then after those devices will work....

Looks like your recovery cd is corrupted. You must obtain a copy of Ms Windows cd and install it using the license from the back of your laptop.If that doesn't work either its a hardware related (hdd) problem.

To reformat toshiba p300-1cn without recovery discs??


If you do not have a recovery partition, you will need to have some sort of bootable disc with an operating system on it. The reasoning behind this is that your computer cannot format a hard-drive it is currently running off of unless the hard-drive is partitioned and your OS is running on a partition that is not being formatted. I would recommend either getting windows recovery disks, or a copy of Ubuntu or such free Linux distributions for this action. After your Laptop is formatted it will have no Operating system and will not work until one is installed on it.

I'd like to format my dimension 9200 desktop and want to know If there is an installed utility to do this? All I found was the driver reset tool.


In order to format a computer you need a operating system disc, like Windows XP, Vista, Linux, etc. Pop the disc in, restart, and boot from the disc. Enless you have a recovery partition then you just hit the key when the bios comes up, or the boot loader for recovery.
