What System Restore not working. Gives a volume shadow copy timed out error when trying 2 create a restore point. if i try 2 update windows or create a system image it goes days not going anywhere.??

If system restore not working you can always try to do a repair operation with the disks that came with your machine. If you have no disks you are out of luck and will have to reload the machine with new software.

If concerned about losing data/files you can remove the hard drive and install it as secondary on another working machine, download the files you want to a usb stick and reload the hard drive and re install the files you previously saved. Good luck

Setup did not find any hard disk drives

The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore or Reload on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

You are in deep doo doo. Since most ladies are neat, I am sure that your restore disks are in prime condition and replacing them with a new set from Sony will be expensive and not do the trick. Either something is terribly corrupt with the software on the drive or there could possibly be something wrong with the hard drive that prevents it to restore or reload. If you have a spare, known working, hard drive kicking around try using the restore disks with that and see if it works. I caution you that many restore softwares are designed to only work with the original, same size hard drive (that sucks for obvious reasons). If it works you definitely have a HD issue. If it does not, you might still have a hard drive issue because the software was not designed to restore a different hard drive. So then you have to do a diagnostics test on your drive to check it out. If the drive proves to be bogus you can replace it with the exact same model and hope that the software does the trick. If not you will have to do a clean install of the OS and all of your programs.

My hard drive crashed, i replaced it reloaded windows , but i dont have the drivers disk, so i cant get my internet to work! who can i purchase a drivers disk from please help??

You should not have to purchase a drivers disk. If you have access to another computer with internet access (maybe at the library) and a good sized flash drive (4GB or better) you can download the drivers for free. Make sure you know what items you have on your computer (i.e. what kind of sound card, chipset, ethernet connection, video chipset, etc.)

There are lots of good places to get free drivers. Manufacturers websites are the best place to start. Just look for the support and/or downloads section.

Nothing working when on main screen, running crazy slow, some updates will not download, xp will not download sp3 or internet explorer 8.

Most likely cause is malware. You can try to remove the malware with a program like malwarebytes. I would probably back up anything important to an external hard drive and then re-install the computer. There should be a restore image on this computer (if it has not been reloaded with a windows disk in the past). When you boot up, on the HP splash screen, look for what function key (I believe it is F11) starts the restore partition.
Once you have started the restore partition, do a full factory restore. This will wipe out any issues and restore the computer back to the way it was when you first opened the box. Any new software, updates, hardware, ect will need to be re-installed.

My system is not booting up I click on safemode it

put in your recovery disks or OS disks that came with the machine when you purchased it. There should be a repair option, if not you might need to recover the data on there and do a clean operating system install. That is of course if its a software issue.

Re-Loading Software

Since they installed a generic copy of xp, there are none of the sony installed add-ons present on the computer. go here to view the available downloads for your system provided by sony, you will have to select the "EVERYTHING" tab to see the giga downloads if it does not load there.
Otherwise you will have to contact sony for a recovery disk specific to your system.
