Having problems with your Sony VAIO CR Series Notebook PC VGN-CR490EBL ?

Hi what is the buttom i press while i turn on my laptop to recover vista vgn cr490 i try but didnt work


Answers :

Try with F10 key at start up.

Restart the System, tapping the F10 key immediately. This should trigger the System to boot directly to the Recovery Partition, and initiate the VAIO Recovery Center, without requiring the Windows Operating System to load.

In the VAIO Recover Center, select the option 'Restore C: Drive' and follow the onscreen instructions to perform a C: Drive Recovery.

Performing a C: Drive Recovery will erase all the data present in the C: Drive and will reinstall the preinstalled Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!
