Hi j5rak,

You can use the VAIO Care Software to access the Recovery Partition within the Operating System.

To open the VAIO Care Software, click Start, All Programs, VAIO Care folder and then click VAIO Care. Then, in the VAIO Care window, in the left pane, click Recovery & Restore . Then you can select the required option in the Recovery & Restore window.


You can also access the Recovery Partition by pressing and holding the F10 Key while restarting the Computer. At the Edit Boot options screen, please press the Enter Key to launch the VAIO Recovery Center.

How do i access the recovery partition on a sony vaio vgn-nr220e laptop


If the recovery software was put on a second partician, you would access it by turning on the pc and watching the lower right side of the screen during start up to read what keys are necessary to start the recovery process. You didn't mention what operating system you are using and each one has a different key to enter the bios and second partician area. It is usually F2, or delete. Some use F8. It will tell you what key to enter the area during the start up before the windows screen is displayed.

If the recovery software is not on a second partician of your hard drive, then go into system recovery using windows (start, programs, accessories, system tools and then slide over to system recovery) and just follow the prompts.

if you have the system recover disks, put one in the drive and restart the pc until it launches using it and then follow the prompts.

How can I get a recovery disc for a vaio vgn-ar320e laptop


For a factory reset there are two installation options:
C:\ drive recovery
System recovery

System recovery will rebuild the partition. C drive recovery will simply re install the C drive on the active partition. When you do full system recovery we create a hidden partition that is read only. this gives you the F10 boot-able recovery partition tools.hit f-10 on boot up

The VAIO model is shipped with recovery partition called VAIO Recovery Wizard, You can use the same to get back the factory installed settings in the computer.

Please restart the computer and press and hold the F10 key to access the Recovery Wizard, if you have not changed preinstalled OS, you must be able to access the Recovery partition. Once you access the partition, please select "Restore C Drive" to perform a system recovery to set the computer back to factory settings.

You can also purchase the recovery discs for the computer by contact the Sony parts center at:

I am having VGN 23G and it came with Vista Home Premium. Right now im using window 7. The os's is working properly. Due to 1GB of RAM using vista is a bit frustrating . All the drivers for VAIO VGN 23G...


All the VAIO Computers will be shipped with the Recovery partition in the Hard Drive. If the Hard Drive is not completely formatted, you can access the Recovery partition by pressing the F10 key for 5 to 10 seconds when the VAIO logo appears.

If you're able to access the Recovery partition, then select Restore C Drive option to restore the Computer back to the factory settings.
Let me inform you how to check the if Recovery partition is available.

Press windows+R key and type diskmgmt.msc and check if you're able to view EISA partition. If EISA partition is there, then the Recovery partition is available and you can access by pressing the F10 key at start-up.
If the EISA partition is not there, then the partition is deleted, then you can purchase the Recovery Discs for your Computer which may cost $15 to $35.
