How do i reboot my laptop


Restore to factory settings

Restoring your Sony VAIO computer to its original factory settings is a great way to remove old programs and files that are buried within your computer that you no longer need, or to get rid of a virus that you just can't seem to shake.


This process will allow you to start anew with your computer, and can potentially save you from simply throwing the computer away because you don't think it can handle the workload anymore and spending money on a new machine.


Unplug any cables connected to your Sony VAIO machine with the exception of the power cord and monitor.


Click "Start" in the lower left corner of your screen.

Click "Control Panel."


Click "Performance and Maintenance."


Scroll down to the bottom of the Performance and Maintenance screen and click "VAIO" recovery wizard. The VAIO Recovery Wizard dialogue box will appear.


Click "Next."


Select "Proceed with System Recovery" and click "Next."


Select "C Drive Recovery" and click "Next."


Click "Next" to confirm that you want to proceed with the C Drive Recovery.


Click "Finish" to restart your Sony VAIO machine and initiate the recovery procedure.

Upon restarting your computer, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will prepare your hard drive for recovery and then restart your computer again.


The necessary files will be copied to your computer and your hard drive will be recovered.


Click "Finish" when a screen appears telling you that your recovery process is complete.

Your computer will restart.


Click "Next" when you arrive at the Windows setup screen.

Follow the on-screen instructions to setup your version of Windows.


When you have finished setting up Windows, click "Finish."

Your computer will restart.

Upon restart, the Sony VAIO Recovery Wizard will install necessary files on your computer.


Your computer will restart automatically when these files are installed and your Sony VAIO will be restored to its original factory settings.


Hope this helps

I use a sony vaio vpceb 290x laptop and recently erased and wiped all data off it.naw my recovery disc is broken and i need to restore my pc back to its original factory seettings.pls help me,i am heavy...


If you have a recovery partition on the pc then you can use that. Hit the power button as soon as the vaio splash screen comes up look at the bottom of the screen if you see a recovery option then you have one. If you don't see one you can try tapping the f11 key right after you hit the power button to try and bring up the recovery partition if present. If neither get you to a recovery partition you can order a recovery disc from sony Or borrow an OS disc from a friend whether it be xp vista or 7 and then it will ask for a product key. It will be located on the bottom of you laptop. You would also have to download the drivers that make all your hardware work from sony's download page while on another pc connected to the internet. You can obtain the drivers by simple going to sony's homepage sony.com select service&support, then Drivers\Software from the menu at the top of the page. Select your model and download the drivers to a jump drive so that you can transfer them back to the vaio to install.

How can i retrieve my original windows xp home edtion for my sony vaio pcg fx55g/bp, since it was formatted?


Hello seltiel_alle
Use your recovery disc . If you don't have one or if it fails , Xp is gone for ever .
If you are currently under Windows 7 Ultimate , or Pro , or Enterprise , you can download and install a virtual version of XP . You can get it from here : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx and it's free .

How to format the Hard drive without a recovery Disk?


What you are saying is like "how to listen to Bryan Adams' music on your PC without having a PC". You are gonna need atleast a OEM edition of the operating system if you want to re-install. The OEM version costs about 40 bucks on stores like ebay and Amazon.

It is not clear what you mean by restore here... do you want to salvage you r personal data on laptop or just want to restore the OS... which you said you have installed XP.
the copied recovery disc may not be booting for various reasons...
1.not set to boot fromcd drive in bios settings.
2. cd copy was not cd to cd copy or it was not made bootable. maybe you just copied the data of the friends recovery disc.
