Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RS530G PC Desktop

1 Answer

Lost Recovery disc

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.

    Need a recovery disk for PCVRS530G

  • G536 Jan 12, 2009

    I have the same problem, I do not have my recovery discs for my PCV-RS530G. I was informed by Sony that I have two options since it does not distribute this disc any longer. 1. Send computer to Sony, 2. Buy a new version of Windows XP.



    There has to be other options.... Where can I get these discs?



    I have tried reformatting my computer from safe mode as it would not boot to the fully operating windows. Since formatting, I am now unable to complete the complete restore of C:, due to the inability of the computer to boot not in safe mode. The message I receive now is that there is a windows/system/system32 file corrupt.

Hi,
Generally, once a file is corrupt, it's gone. So what I'd do, is just recreate the changes using one of your slightly older versions of the file. This time taking care to make sure you know exactly which one you're editing. Maybe saving a copy to a USB flash drive in addition to uploading a copy somewhere.
Use PowerPoint Repair Toolbox. The PowerPoint repair tool reads and analyzes the damaged files and exports data the restored data to Microsoft PowerPoint. For more:

Hi usually data do not be recover from dead flash drive but please try this option:
  • Be prepared beforehand

    Installing any software after data loss will increase the risk of the lost data being overwritten. A recovery program installed now is good insurance for your data.

    Free recovery software. There are many good free recovery programs out there. Installing one now may be the difference in keeping and loosing valuable data.

    Commercial recovery software

    Commercial recovery software will increase the chances of recovering important data. It's not free but can be well worth the price.
  • Step 2What to do

    Use your system as little as possible until you recover all of your lost files.

    The more activity taking place on your hard diskmag-glass_10x10.gif, the greater chance that some of your lost data will be over written. If you are trying to recover files from a media card, stop using that card immediately.
