Restoring Sony PCG-U1
\015 I want to restore my Sony PCG-U1 7" UMPC, but I believe that if I do this (to original settings) it restores to the Japanese settings. The reason for wanting to restore is that I want to sell it. Is there any way I can safely sell it without restoring to original settings?\015
Um... You could take it to a place like best buy and have them wipe the hard drive clean with-out restoring it... I hope this helps you out..

My Sony Vaio NR 140 E/B (PCG 384L) is 2 years old. In the last month or so, it has developed boot problems. Everytime I start the machine, it powers off with a rough 'click' sound.
