I had to reformat my computer and now my Sony

I assume you reloaded all drivers??

Windows should have a generic driver for that one.

Install Nero8 and use this really easy program free.

Solve my issue of transferring data from my Sony HDR-SR10E TO pc?

If you're having trouble transferring data from your Sony HDR-SR10E to your pc, there are a few things you can try. First, make sure that the cables you're using are in good working order and correctly connected. If that doesn't work, try restarting both your pc and your Sony HDR-SR10E. If the problem persists, it's possible that the data you're trying to transfer is corrupted. In that case, you'll need to use a different method to transfer the data, such as a USB drive.

Looking for recovery disk(s) for the Sony Viao PCV-7752

Well, good and bad news. First the good news. The Sony site says to contact Best Buy for OS systems older than Windows 7. Now the bad news about the alternatives. Sony's recovery disks check for model numbers, so they are not interchangeable. If you use a generic XP installation, it will wipe personal data files and definitely not install or recover any Sony software. And Windows own XP Recovery Console demands you put in the recovery CD/DVD. As you finding the recovery disk at Sony, that's a no go. No do I find it at 3rd party sites, not even internet archive for your model. As you are looking for restoration to factory defaults, there is no use pointing to data recovery options. Nor do I find the recovery discs on Ebay. And Microsoft does not offer an ISO of XP and says sites that do may contain malware. The needle in the haystack approach would be to seek the discs on an XP Forum site. There is a site that alleges it is working on a workaround to defeat Sony's check of model numbers but I see no result. Just why Best Buy might could help, I don't know. My stops at Best Buy suggests they ship the computer off to parts unknown and I suppose one such outfit would either have the recovery discs or wipe the computer and put on a generic XP setup minus Sony software and personal data. So, maybe this information will help you in your decisions.

Sony Vaio PCG-8W2L. Proprietary ? Can I fit a motherboard from a machine that has an i5 processor in it?

Question edited for clarity and spelling of model. Yes if the peripherals attached to it are compatible with that motherboard. Sony tend to do things their own way and make such upgrades difficult. It is always an interesting experience. Or you can just upgrade the processor and leave the motherboard alone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_imK95TZUE https://www.google.com/search?q=Sony+vaio+pcg8w2L+upgrade+to+i5+processor ..

Both of my SONY MDS-JB920s are stuck in Standby after a recent power outage and will not turn on. What do I do?

Since you have multiple items that are damaged from the power issue, this is an insurance claim.. It would appear that there was a surge that damaged the power supplies.
