Easiest way is to use the disk that came with it. Or you can get any windows disk and boot from the disk then reformat. A windows XP disk will allow you to format the drive without an install if that is what your interested in doing.

You can also get a disk from here: which will completely wipe all data from your hard drive and make it unrecoverable.

My Sony VAIO has shutdown problem. when i do

i think you need to reformat and reinstall the OS on the machine to fix the problem. Some internal data is corrupt and does contribute to the failure of turning off and turning on.

Can't reformat laptop off of partition

You don't format using BIOS. You need a boot disk with the option.

BIOS allows a "dry" system (with no OS) to boot from CD to install an OS if you should want.
