Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RS530G PC Desktop
Lost my recovery disc (which I used to restore my h drive once every 6 mos, to eliminate all bad, corrupt or temp files). In Sony documentation, it say you can access the Vaio recovery wizard and it will do the same thing from a program on the hard drive. When I go through Windows start and click on the rec wizard, a dialogue box comes up and says it cannot find the recovery partion and restart your comp. That didn't work. It also says I can press F10 on startup to access it and that doesn't work either. Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance.
I have a sony vaio, and there's another way to do this..let me know if that chat doesn't work out for you.

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
