I lost my recovery disk or restore disk for my sony vaio VGN-FE660G. If anyone could direct me in the right direction to get them.


There are no System Recovery CDs included with the computer. The recovery data required to return the computer to the original, factory-installed condition is included on a special partition of the hard drive. Follow this procedure to create the Recovery Media Kit (a set of Recovery Discs), which can be used to restore the recovery partition and return the computer to the original, factory-installed condition.
  1. Ensure all open programs are closed.
  2. Ensure all network connections are disconnected.
  3. Ensure all peripheral devices are disconnected.
  4. From within the VAIO Recovery Wizard application, in the Create Recovery Discs window, click Next.
  5. Under Create Recovery Discs (Step 1 of 3), click to select the option to use either DVD or CD media.
  6. Click the Next button.
  7. At the Insert a blank... dialog box, insert the appropriate disc.
  8. Click the OK button.
  9. Insert a new disc when necessary as instructed.
  10. When all the disks have been created, click the Finish button.

Fujitsu Laptop to Factory Settings
Restoring the factory settings on your Fujitsu laptop is a great way to get rid of files associated with programs that have been removed from your computer that are taking up space and get rid of pesky viruses that you can't remove from your machine by any other means.
Restoring the factory settings on your laptop can also help resolve problems with an unstable laptop.
You should also restore the factory settings on your laptop if you plan on selling it or giving it to a family member or friend.

Restart or turn on your Fujitsu laptop. Press "F12" repeatedly when the Fujitsu logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the Boot Menu.
Highlight "Recovery and Utility" using the arrow keys on the keyboard, then press "Enter."
A progress bar will appear at the bottom of the screen while the computer is loading the recovery files.
When the files have been loaded, the System Recovery Options window will be displayed.


Select a keyboard layout, then click "Next." The Operating System dialog box appears.
Choose "Use recovery tools...," then click "Next." If prompted, type your administrator password, then press "OK." The System Recovery Options window will appear again.


Select the "Recovery" tab, then click "Restoring the Factory Image (only C:\drive)."
The restoration process will begin, and the laptop will be restored to its original factory settings.
When the process is complete, the computer will automatically restart and boot up to the Windows Setup screen.
Begin personalizing your copy of Windows.

Using Boot Disc

Restart or turn on your Fujitsu laptop. Press "F12" repeatedly when the Fujitsu logo appears on the screen to be redirected to the Boot Menu.


Highlight "CD/DVD" using the arrow keys, then press "Enter."
Place the boot disc that came with your Fujitsu laptop in the optical drive, then click "OK."
A progress bar will appear at the bottom of the screen while the computer is loading the recovery files. When the files have been loaded, the System Recovery Options window will be displayed.


Select a keyboard layout, then click "Next."
Click "Next" when the Operating System dialog box appears.
If prompted, type your administrator password, then select "OK."
The System Recovery Options window will appear again.


Click "Recovery and Utility" when the System Recovery Options window opens, then select the "Recovery" tab.
Click "Restoring the Factory Image (only C: drive)."
The restoration process will begin, and the laptop will be restored to its original factory settings.

I need to know how to restore my Compaq Presario 2700 to factory setting because it has crashed.


If you have the original recovery disc for the laptop, then I would re-install your operational system to bring it back to factory setting. If you do not have the disc go to www.compaq.com for customer support to see if they have the disc available.

Computer crash. Have No recovery disk.


Hi jgar2141,

If you are trying to restore the Computer to the factory settings, it is not required to have the Recovery Discs as you can use the Recovery Partition which is present in the hidden partition of the Hard Drive. To access the Recovery Partition, restart the Computer, press and hold the F10 Key for 7 to 10 seconds. This will boot the Computer to the Edit Boot Options screen. There, please press the Enter Key.This will launch the VAIO Recovery Center. In the VAIO Recovery Center window, you can select the "Restore C: Drive" option to restore the Computer to the factory settings. (Selecting the "Restore C: Drive" option will erase all the Data in the Computer and restore to the factory defaults)

After selecting the Restore C: Drive, please follow the simple onscreen instructions to proceed with the System Recovery. The System Recovery process using the VAIO Recovery Center should fix all the Software issues in the Computer and restore the Computer to the factory defaults.

Good Luck!

Please post back if you have any questions or require any further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My daughters computer is a dell latitude D610 notebook running Windows XP.....when powering up XP starts to load and then goes to a blank blue screen....Is there a restore disc or something i can download...


Hi. I provided you a link where to download the restore disk. Once you have downloaded the restore disk, here's the instruction on how to use the disk.

Instruction:

  • Backup all the data you want to keep on an external hard drive, flash drive, or rewritable CD. Resetting your Dell to factory defaults will erase all data currently on your computer.

  • 2

    Insert the Recovery CD into your CD-ROM.

  • 3

    Reboot your computer.

  • 4

    Watch the text in DOS carefully. When prompted to boot from your CD, do so.

  • 5

    Choose System Restore and then follow the instructions presented. Once system recovery beings, it may take a few minutes. Once it's done, your system will reboot again.

  • 6

    Remove the Recovery CD from your CD-ROM and store it carefully. Your system has been reset to the factory default.

    Going to reset my computer. Where can I find the reset button?


    If you're trying to restore the Computer to factory settings, then you can use the VAIO Recovery Center that is shipped with the Computer.

    NOTES:
    1. Click the Start button, then click Help and Support . NOTE: If the Help and Support link is not available on the Start menu, re-enable the link in the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window.
    2. In the Windows Help and Support window, click Backup & Recovery .
    3. Under Backup & Recovery , under VAIO Recovery Center , click Launch VAIO Recovery Center .
    4. In the VAIO Recovery Center window, under Choose a program , click to select the desired option: NOTES:
      • It is strongly recommended that recovery discs be created to help restore files if the operating system will not start. Recovery discs are bootable and can be used to perform a recovery on a properly functioning hard drive.
      • The Windows Backup and Restore option opens the Backup and Restore Center provided with the Windows Vista® operating system. This provides the ability to save information from the hard drive, such as personal data files, and restore previously backed up data.
      • Computer problems related to hardware can be diagnosed using the VAIO Hardware Diagnostics option.
      • One or more drivers or factory-installed applications may be reinstalled with the Reinstall Programs or Drivers option.
      • The entire (C:) drive can be restored to its original, factory-installed condition by selecting Restore C: Drive .
      • Choosing Restore Complete System will restore the entire (C:) drive, while removing or restoring the Recovery Drive partition. Modifying the size of the hard drive partitions is also an option with this type of recovery. This option requires you to insert Recovery DVDs created using the Create Recovery Discs option.
      • To remove all data from the hard drive, including the operating system, all programs and personal data, choose the Wipe and Erase Data option. This option is provided for the convenience of advanced users who want to install a different operating system, and who want to ensure all data has been removed from the hard drive first. All other users are strongly urged to avoid selecting this option.

    After you restore your computer, you must also reinstall the drivers for things like your wireless receiver. This is found on the Drivers disk, also gotten with your computer. Follow directions to recover all drivers are found on the disk.
