    run fdisk from a floppy.. DO NOT make any changes but view the partitions. is the recovery partition still there ?



    and are the recovery disks for that computer or you borrowed some. ?

    and also define what you mean by "it's not working very well" perhaps the dvd's need to be cleaned gently so that they do not get scratched

Your recovery dics should not be a dvd, but a cd. look at all of your discs and make sure you are using the right one, if you cant find the right one call sony and ask them which one to use.

Need to get winVista Home from Sony Vaio VGN-NS230E recovery disks to new 1TB HDD


Could be a recovery partition. Could be hard drive software partition. Could be junk.

Leave it and have an extra 10GB drive later. Or, delete it and take advantage of the space. If the recovery recreates it you will know where it came from.

On a side note, I suggest partitioning the 1TB drive. Make a OS partition, and possible 2 other partitions. It will help with defrag and keep your important files out of the OS side in case another recovery is required.

How do i access the recovery partition on a sony vaio vgn-nr220e laptop


If the recovery software was put on a second partician, you would access it by turning on the pc and watching the lower right side of the screen during start up to read what keys are necessary to start the recovery process. You didn't mention what operating system you are using and each one has a different key to enter the bios and second partician area. It is usually F2, or delete. Some use F8. It will tell you what key to enter the area during the start up before the windows screen is displayed.

If the recovery software is not on a second partician of your hard drive, then go into system recovery using windows (start, programs, accessories, system tools and then slide over to system recovery) and just follow the prompts.

if you have the system recover disks, put one in the drive and restart the pc until it launches using it and then follow the prompts.

The laptop does not restart... deleted a file by error and do not have recovery disk sony vaio vgn-fs500


Hi,


The VAIO model is shipped with recovery partition called VAIO Recovery Wizard, You can use the same to get back the factory installed settings in the computer.

Please restart the computer and press and hold the F10 key to access the Recovery Wizard, if you have not changed preinstalled OS, you must be able to access the Recovery partition. Once you access the partition, please select "Restore C Drive" to perform a system recovery to set the computer back to factory settings. This will erase all the data saved in the hard drive of the computer.

You can also purchase the recovery discs for the computer by contact the Sony parts center at:

Toll Free Service: 1-800-488-SONY (7669)
Phone Hours:

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.

I am having VGN 23G and it came with Vista Home Premium. Right now im using window 7. The os's is working properly. Due to 1GB of RAM using vista is a bit frustrating . All the drivers for VAIO VGN 23G...


All the VAIO Computers will be shipped with the Recovery partition in the Hard Drive. If the Hard Drive is not completely formatted, you can access the Recovery partition by pressing the F10 key for 5 to 10 seconds when the VAIO logo appears.

If you're able to access the Recovery partition, then select Restore C Drive option to restore the Computer back to the factory settings.
Let me inform you how to check the if Recovery partition is available.

Press windows+R key and type diskmgmt.msc and check if you're able to view EISA partition. If EISA partition is there, then the Recovery partition is available and you can access by pressing the F10 key at start-up.
If the EISA partition is not there, then the partition is deleted, then you can purchase the Recovery Discs for your Computer which may cost $15 to $35.
