Hi I want to restore my computer to original factory settings. I can only find the F2 option into the BIOS menu and there is recovery centre. Plus it didn't come with a recovery disk. Do you have any...


Restart your Sony Vaio if it is already on. If it's off, turn it on
  • Press the F12 key on your Sony Vaio keyboard. This will enter the computer into the built-in restore mode. Note that depending on the model of Sony Vaio, you may have to press either the F11 key or the ESC key to enter this restore mode. This must be done before your operating system begins to load. If you see the Windows logo appear on screen, you'll have to restart and try again.

  • Choose the option on screen that is most appropriate to your needs. You will be presented with three options: you can either create a set of recovery discs, attempt to repair your operating system's installation, or restore your operating system. Repairing your operating system will attempt to fix your computer without deleting any of your personal files. Restoring your operating system will delete everything on your hard drive and return your computer to its original factory settings.

  • Wait for the restore process to complete. Depending on the type of restore you've tried, you may have to wait as little as a few minutes and as much as an hour or more. When the process is finished, the computer will automatically restart itselff

    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.

    Can you still get into the BIOS? Del or F2 in general.
    If so, check the boot devices and the boot device order. You can also try loading the default settings in the BIOS.

    And, have you waited long enough? It can take a while for the boot process to time out on a device problem and show the error.

    Want put additional hard drive in presario s6020wm is this possiable, also do the rpm speeds have to be the same I have a maxtor diamondmax plus 9 80g that spins at 7200, the one in the computer spins at...


    It’s very possible to do and no it doesn't matter that each drive runs at different Rpm speeds.
    The difference between a hard disk drive that runs at 5400Rpm and a 7200 Rpm is data transfer speed. The 7200 drive will run faster but the drives cache also plays a big part when transferring data. A drive that runs at 7200Rpm with a 16MB cache will run faster than a drive with 8MB cache. The 7200Rpm drive will run a little hotter than a 5400Rpm drive and use a little less power. Typically you’d want to use the 7200Rpm drive as the primary drive. (With windows installed on it).
    The 5400Rpm drive should be used as a storage drive and be connected on the same data cable as a slave drive. How to safely remove data from the 5400 drive. Before you shut down the system, open windows explorer. Click on the C:\ than delete the Boot.ini, AUTOEXEC.BAT, and IO.SYS files. (By doing this the drive will no longer be bootable but all the data will stay intact). Shut down the system. Remove the 5400Rpm drive from the system. Install the 7200Rpm drive. (The new drive is an IDE drive. Set its jumper so it is a Master.) Guide to setting-up an IDE drive; http://freepctech.com/pc/001/installing_ide_devices.shtml
    Set the jumper for the 7200 drive as a Master with a slave. (The 5400 drive will be added later).
    Once the drive is configured and installed boot the system and enter the bios/CMOS menu. Press the delete key to enter the bios or watch you're screen you may need to press the F1, F2 key or F10 key to enter the bios menu. Instruction on how to move about while in the bios is shown at the bottom of the bios screen. You should see the model numbers of you’re 7200 DiamondMax drive within the main bios menu.
    You will also need to set the boot menu / boot order.
    Open the Boot menu. A typical boot menu would list as follows:
    1st Boot device, Floppy disk drive
    2nd Boot device, CD-ROM drive
    3rd Boot device, Primary hard disk drive.
    4th Boot device, not needed
    Compaq does not provide bios settings within their user guide. Before you save and exit the bios, open the CD-ROM drive and load you're windows CD or the restore CD from Compaq. Save and exit the bios. When the system reboots it should start up the windows CD or the restore CD. Follow the on-screen instructions from the restore CD. Once windows is installed update windows. When finished it is now time to add the old 5400Rpm drive. Shut down the system. You will need to change the jumper on the on the 5400Rpm drive. Set the jumper to Slave and insert it into an open bay. Connect the data cable and power cable. Check that all cables are fully connected. Boot you're system. Windows should load. You're 5400Rpm drive will most likely be labeled as letter E. You can change the drive letter order by opening the run window. Click Start and in the run window type in: diskmgmt.msc than click ok. Open Help. Click, help topics. Click on disk management.

    Dell Optiplex GX280 Probem with DVDRW


    Hey,

    Please look into the computer bios / cmos setup and see if the dvd drive is detected there, if its not detected then its not either connected properly or this type of drive will not work with this computer. in that case try the drive on another computer or try another drive on your computer.

    to enter bios, please look at the monitor right when you turn the power on, you should have a message to press button to enter system setup or bios or cmos setup. etc.

    Possibly F1 or F2, DEL, it depends and the computer will tell you what button is the right one.

    Thanks and good luck.

    Sony laptop won't detect hard drive


    If the drive hasn't been formatted, that is normal. On some systems, you also have to force the BIOS to recognize the drive by entering the BIOS setup (check with Sony or manual to learn the key needed). Once you know the proper key to tap at power on (it varies, sometimes F1, F2, Esc - who knows?), you will be presented with a simple text screen with a number of different selectable items. Choose 'Set factory defaults' and the BIOS should look for the drive and set the parameters for you. If that still doesn't work, check through the other BIOS items and you should find 'Detect fixed (or hard) drive.'
    Sometimes installing a larger drive than the original can cause problems and if the BIOS is older, it may set the drive parameters of the original drive and ignore the excess capacity.
