I have sony vaio (model vgn-sz680). i need help to reboot my laptop to factory setttings. i dont have restore cd.
When you say the computer won't boot--what do you mean? Does it actually start and then you get a black or blue or white screen? Does it do nothing at all? Can you boot from a CD? Do you have a restore CD?
1) If you have a factory boot CD, put it in and boot from that.
2) If your computer won't boot into Windows, boot into safe mode
3) If you just can't start Windows at all, try #1--and maybe you can choose "repair" and run chkdsk.
4) If all of the above fail, click on my profile and choose "ask me" and we'll look at other options
