I have a VAIO... normally VAIO's don't come with restore discs... they ask you to install it to your own discs. but if your still having this problems I reccomend you type online whatever operating system you wan't to install on that system example Windows 7... Type it on google download it look for the .iso image file from the download copy/move it to a blank disc/dvd restart pc with that .iso image file inside the disc/dvd and an installation wizard should pop up with the installation of whatever the Operating System you downloaded and copied to the disc/dvd.

And remember to copy the .iso image file to a BLANK cd/dvd and then restart with cd/dvd inserted.

MAKE SURE: You back up IMPORTANT data you wan't to keep. Because this WILL remove everything on your computer.

Email me @ ishaqazmi@googlemail.com for more help or anything else you have problems with.

As soon as you power up your system keep tapping F8 repeatedly until another screen pops up.
You can select reinstall Operating system (ie windows) / restore factory settings etc from there, Choose option which is suitable for yourslef. By doing it this way it reinstalls the OS that is already stored on your Hard drive so no disc is required.

Hope this helps and please rate

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to restore your Vaio PC to it's factory settings. In other words how to restore your computer to it's original settings (in the exact state you bought it).
For that you have to:
1. Back-up all your data. Restoring to factory setting means to erase all data and reinstall Windows, drivers and preinstalled applications. If you have a single drive (C:) you have to backup your data to external drive or disks.
2. Start VAIO Recovery Center. Click on Start button and then click on All Programs. From the program list select "VAIO Recovery Center".

Save Data if possible.

Use Restore System; Restore Computer to Factory "New" Condition.. Sont Vaios have a Key Prompt which you hold down while booting and the Replacement Software already on a Sector of the Hard Drive. Check THe Manuel for this OR CALL SONY CUSTOMER SERVICE AND JUST GIVE THEM THE MODEL NUMBER AND ASK THEM WHICH BUTTON YOU PUSH ETC TO RESTORE THE COMPUTER TO "FACTORY CONDITION"
