Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-NR498E/S Notebook PC ?

How do you restore the laptop with the internal restore system


Answers :

1. According to the specifications available online, your Computer is shipped with the VAIO Recovery Center software, present in a hidden partition. You can use the VAIO Recovery Center to install the preinstalled Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers.

2. Restart the Computer and press the F10 key when the Sony logo appears to check whether the Computer is able to access the VAIO Recovery Center.

NOTE: 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.

3. If you're able to access the VAIO Recovery Center, select the option 'Restore C: Drive' and follow the onscreen instructions to perform a C: Drive Recovery to resolve the issue.

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