I recommend trying the restoration for your Sony VGN-FW305J again using the recovery partition that most likely resides in your hard drive. This is accessed by pressing F10 when prompted on boot up. This will eliminate any problems your restoration encountered that may have been caused by errors or scratches on your restoration DVD's.

The manual for your Sony VGN-FW305J is available here from sony, and will detail full restoration procedure as well.

Additionally, you will note that there are many downloads from sony's e-support website, including many applications, drivers and updates, for your model of laptop.

Not recovery for Vista after installed Windows XP. Not repair file recovery.


The Computer is shipped with the Recovery Center, a hidden partition in the Hard Drive. Please restart the Computer and press the F10 key when the VAIO logo appears to access the Recovery Center.
If the Recovery Center is accessible, select Restore C Drive to reinstall the pre-installed Operating System, Applications and the Drivers (restore to factory settings).
If the Recovery Center is not accessible, then the Recovery partition may be deleted. In that case, you can contact Sony Accessories and Parts Center from US at: 1-800-488-SONY (7669)to order the Recovery Discs.

Good Luck!
Thank you for contacting.

Spilled water on keyboard of Sony VIAO VGN-FW250j and crashed HDD. Get system not found at startup. Replace HDD and get error:333 when loading recovery media kit. All hardware checks OK by Bestbuy geeks...


unfortunately water has a way of finding it's way into the circuit board, when it does it causes immeasurable damage, as parts of the circuit, and components that were not meant to get voltage are exposed to it, this generally ruins the machine's motherboard, with little chance of recovery. The HD may be OK as may be the DVD however anything electronic will generally be ruined,sorry. A recovery DVD is only good for SOFTWARE, problems... you have a hardware issue.

Hi what is the buttom i press while i turn on my laptop to recover vista vgn cr490 i try but didnt work


Try with F10 key at start up.

Restart the System, tapping the F10 key immediately. This should trigger the System to boot directly to the Recovery Partition, and initiate the VAIO Recovery Center, without requiring the Windows Operating System to load.

In the VAIO Recover Center, select the option 'Restore C: Drive' and follow the onscreen instructions to perform a C: Drive Recovery.

Performing a C: Drive Recovery will erase all the data present in the C: Drive and will reinstall the preinstalled Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!

Hi,
I think your laptop is now really messed up and you will need to restore to factoy settings.
I hope you created the Recovery CD/DVD set with the Recovery Wizard when you
first set up your computer, you can restore to factory default settings by
setting up your BIOS (press F2 at the VAIO logo when you first start up) to
boot to the CD-ROM/DVD drive first. Then boot with the Recovery Startup CD.
Choose the option to perform a complete recovery

Follow the prompts to insert the various Recovery CDs/DVDs as needed.
As this action will format the drives again, I hope you have made a backup of your data.

If you failed to create the Recovery CD/DVD set you need to
purchase a proper recovery set from Sony.

Does the fj270 recovery disk from ebay make the computer like new with a blank harddrive?


I am assuming you are going back to XP?
You will run into one major problem with this process, Vista is based of Windows NT which uses a NTFS file system. XP uses the old file system of FAT32, so just wiping the hard drive probably won't work. You will have to go into your partition and re-partition your hard drive before you intall the recovery disk.
If the recovery disk is designed for your computer then yes it will restore it to all factory defaults (including drivers and software that originally came with it.
If you are not sure how to do the partition then let me know I will try to guide you through it.
