You have to put the windows disk in, and then shut down computer. Make sure the laptop is set to boot from cd. Then follow the on screen instructions.
PS BACK UP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT FILES BEFORE INSTALLING / REFORMATTING WINDOWS!
HOPE THIS HELPS

I lost all data from my sony vaio vgn-nr498e even original windows(home premium) and recovery partition.how can i recover it if i am using another windows at present


You will need a good disk recovery software. These utilities do come at a price. Email disk recovery experts such as Recover Data or Sony Vaio data recovery if they can help you.
Please share your feedback to help others.

I need VAIO® VGN-FJ170/B Restore Disks


You can create your own disc from the Vaio recovery center.

If the computer is no longer booting up and the Vaio Recovery center is no longer accessible, you can call sony parts center to check if you can buy a recovery disc for your unit

Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 laptop recovery disks


Check your user manuals and see if there is a recovery partition mentioned in there. If there isn't then you will need to buy an operating system cd and reinstall from fresh.

Disk read error


Hey,

If you receive this error in start up and your computer doesn't load windows. It was unable to read the disk.

Please use your recovery discs (or windows installation cd/dbd) to restore the computer. If the recovery discs don't solve the problem and you still receive the same error, the hard drive is possibly damaged. I would suggest to take the laptop to a professional for testing and fixing.


Thanks and good luck.
