Unfortunately there is no way that you'll be able to test those recovery CD's without having to use them. Keep in mind that those discs only cover software and do not backup your documents. I recommend an external hard drive to do so. However in terms of Microsoft Office, if you have Vista you may a problem getting it reinstalled because Microsoft has introduced new DRM technologies to prevent theft. Have you used all 3 of your licenses?
The great thing is that in the worst case scenario you merely have to be on the phone with Microsoft for 10-15 minutes getting a new activation code.

I just got a new power supply for my old SONY VAIO VGC ra710g box. Need help removing old one and installing new one


Power supplies are pretty easy to replace.

I would recommend taking a picture of the inside of the computer case so you have a reference. The connectors are all oriented so you cannot misplug.

I assume you have the right PS for your unit.

HELP! No video on Sony Vaio VGC-RA710G desktop


Since the power supply wasn't secured properly it actually contacted the motherboard while it was still carrying a charge. For next time, I use zap straps for all of my wires and to secure components. Try removing the motherboard and doing the power supply self test, most likely you will have to replace both the motherboard and CPU though.
