I found these instructions for you on the Sony support site.
Before performing a recovery, go to the Sony® eSupport Web site at http://esupport.sony.com and
check your model-specific support page. Look for software and driver
updates or check for knowledge base solutions that may help you solve
your computer's issue.
This model does not require Recovery CDs. Recovery data is included on a special partition of the hard drive.
Do not interrupt the power during the recovery process.
performing a recovery, disconnect any external devices not supplied
with the computer such as printers, network cables, cameras, or
external storage devices, like hard drives or flash drives.
who purchased the Symantec® Norton Internet Security® 2007 software
from the Sony Style® store with their computer must create a Norton Account to save their product key prior to a system recovery or the software cannot be reinstalled.
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 Microsoft® 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.
