Question about Sony VAIO VPCEA21FX Notebook
There are numerous ways tom recover your data .Depending on how much data you have to recover -If you have acess to another computer that you can down load and burn a cd on here is one way that works most times for me -it will take a while to set up though--First go to this web site and down load the latest Ubuntu CD -ISO image ( http://www.ubuntu.com/ ) burn the image to a disc-- or follow instructions on ubuntu to make a bootable USB stick ---Using this operating system running from cdrom or usb stick we can access the hard drive with out writing any thing to it so we don't corrupt any more data .
Make sure you have another hard drive you can connect to your computer or another dvd drive you can burn to or if you dont have much data to recover then just use usb sticks.
Once you have the bootable cd or usb stick set your bois or boot sequance to boot from cd rom or other bootable device once ubuntu loads it will ask to try first or install--- click on try first --this will load the operating system to your ram and take you to a desktop-- once the ubuntu desktop loads look up the top of the screen and look for" places" click on it and a drop down menu appears look for your hard drive it should be listed here click on it and it should mount to desk top click and select open to brows your files -- the folders and files will look a little diferant but all your file names will be there . now just select the files and folders you need and right clcik then send to your usb stick or other hard drive or other dvd burner (make sure these are plugged in while starting the ubuntu disc so ubuntu can see them and install drivers for them.) once you have copied al your files you can then clcik on the shut down icon ubuntu will proceed to shut down then promt you to remove the disc and hit enter it will shut down and also be removed from your computer --do your restore then copy your files over like you normally would do -- and if you like you can also install Ubunto after wards and have a duel boot system( to impress your mates) with windows and Ubunto on it if you like . I hope this helps

Try Ubuntu bootable disc or usb to boot from that. Ubuntu is a free operating system. you can use Ubuntu without actually installing it. you can run Ubuntu from a bootable disc or usb ......
such are called live CD or live usb.
running Ubuntu you can access the hard discpartition and hence your data and take backup os that in external media or another partition.
yoy can download Ubuntu freely. also you can order ubantu disc free of cost, even no delivery charges by post. just register and order Ubuntu from www.ubuntu.com
