First of all you do need to format your PC to improve system speed.system speed degrades because of viruses or temp files in your pc.so we will delete all those

1.Click on start->run and type %temp% and delete all the files

2.scan your pc with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

This will remove all the malware on your pc

if you still want to format,you need to back up all the files in drive c: where you windows is installed

How to factory restore sony vpceb42fx


Try this:
http://www.withsteps.com/275/restore-a-sony-vaio-pc-to-its-factory-settings.html

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to restore your Vaio PC to it's factory settings. In other words how to restore your computer to it's original settings (in the exact state you bought it).
For that you have to:
1. Back-up all your data. Restoring to factory setting means to erase all data and reinstall Windows, drivers and preinstalled applications. If you have a single drive (C:) you have to backup your data to external drive or disks.
2. Start VAIO Recovery Center. Click on Start button and then click on All Programs. From the program list select "VAIO Recovery Center".

5. Select "Restore C: drive" and hit Next.

6. Read the information on this new window, select "I understand" and hit Start.

7. "Are you sure?" If you made backup for all your data and really want to restore your Vaio as it was when you bought it you have to make sure that have it plugged in to a stable source of energy and press YES.

8. So ... next you should sit back and relax. Your computer will start showing the next messages
Shuting Down
Windows is loading files ...

Please wait a moment while Windows prepares to start for the first time...
Windows Vista setup: The initial setup may take up to 15 minutes. Do not turn off the computer. Click OK to continue the setup process and wait until the "Set up Windows screen appears". Select OK

Tried to install nortan on sony vaio laptop next day i tried to start laptop it shows the system menu but then image error pops up with a black screen. cannot use laptop i think i may have lost data....


There might be a problem during the installation of norton. What you can try to do is to perform a system restore and bring back the computer to an earlier date before you install norton or befor you get the problem. Here are the steps on how to do it:

  1. restart the computer
  2. press F8 key repeatedly when you see the VAIO logo until you get the screen that says Advanced boot option
  3. use the arrow keys on the keyboard to highlight safemode then press enter
  4. when it loads to safemode, go to start menu
  5. go to all programs
  6. click accessories
  7. click system tools the select system restore
  8. on the system restore window, click next
  9. in choose a different restore point, you will see list of dates or calendar where you can pick a date that you want to use in restoring back the computer settings.
  10. click on the next button again
  11. click finish
the computer will start restoring the settings back to the selected date which may take for a few mins(2mins to 10mins usually). system restore does not delete any personal files/documents. It only undo software applications, updates and settings.
