Hi kattas, do you know if any of your friends that may also use windows media center edition in their PC?
If one does have the Windows Media Center CD you can use their CD to reinstall that over your PC's corrupt system. Located on your case is a Microsoft sticker & on that sticker is your CD-key for installing Media Center. The CD-key is specific for your Sony. Any Media Center CD will function & install over your corrupted current version. (Your not going to run format, your just going to boot to the CD & reinstall Windows). Please post your Sony's model number here so I can post Sony's web site link for you to download your driver software.
As a last option you can contact Sony & order new CD's for your model. You can click this link (to call Sony).

Ran toshiba recovery media and didn't back up or save documents and picturses can i restore them


All documents, programmes and data on the disc cannot be easily restored as they have been deleted. There are several companies that offer a restore service but can be very expensive.

I have sony Vaio VGN-CS36GJ - Recently i was trying to restore it to factory settings via Vaio recovery due to virus attach but suddenly it didn't either recovered to factory setting but looks as operating...


I would have recomended Norton Antivirus or a full programme anti virus to clean your drive. However, it is almost too late for repairs.
You need to format your drive but as there seems to be a "Worm" type virus, I guess due to the problems you are having trying to re install OS, it will keep reinfecting the drive due to it being resident in the memory.
You really need an antivirus programme to clean your Sony Vaio before you can succesfully place an uninfected OS on your drive. I hope the recovery partion is not infected as well, a good anti virus programme will clean it though. When it is clean, boot with a system disk with the same OS on it and when you get to drive "C" hopefully drive "D" will be available, assuming "D" is the recovery drive partition.

When you get your anti virus disk, you will need it to be a bootable disk with the format command on it. When it has been cleaned you can then format the disk and put your recovery OS disk back on.
Hope this helps.

Do you know where I can find a recovery disc for an HP 873n Media Center PC? I called hp and they don't have one.


Hi,
You are correct HP do not provide the recovery disks for this Media Center anymore.

I've just about searched the net for anyone who may have recovery CD's for sale but no no avail.

If you can still get into the operating system use HP Backup and Recovery Manager, its quick and user-friendly. To run, simply go to All Programs > HP Backup & Recovery > HP Backup and Recovery Manager. With HP Backup & Recovery Manager, file restoration is easy. To recover a deleted file, simply use the Restore Wizard.

For a full system restoration, press the F11 key during boot up and then select "Recover PC" from the menu if there is a recovery partition available (sometimes you have to hold down Ctrl and hit the F11 key on boot up)

Other than that you may have to purchase a Windows XP or Windows XP Media Center installation CD from a reputable store like PC World for example.

Good luck.

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop wit windows vista ultimate, does anybody knows how to recovery this laptop?


Most Sony Vaio systems will have a VAIO recovery wizard. Create a Recovery Media Kit using this wizard and you’ll be able to create a set of CDs that will enable you to do a system recovery on your Sony VAIO machine.
If your PC does not have this feature, you can always call Sony at 1-800-488-SONY to have them send you the disks.

Once you have either created or ordered and received the CDs necessary to restore your Sony VAIO computer, you’ll need to place the first CD in the drive and reboot the machine. The recovery process will immediately begin when the system boots. If it does not begin, you may have to enter the BIOS of the computer to change the boot sequence to the CD ROM instead of the hard drive. To enter the BIOS, tap the F2 key numerous times when booting.

REMEMBER... when you use the recoery system, it will restore your computer to it's ORIGINAL configuration from the factory. All data and programs you have installed will be GONE!

Corrupt firmware


Reset the player by holding down the play/pause button and pressing the reset button with a paperclip at the same time. (the reset button looks like a little hole on the side.) This will put the player into recovery mode. Try rebooting the player. if this doesn't work, reinstall the firmware using that option in recovery mode. For more information go to the knowledge base at creative labs for your player.
