Use The Recovery Disks To Restore Your Sony VAIO To Factory Default

If you are using an external drive, power on a press F11 to enter the boot options menu. From there, select the USB drive.
Otherwise, just insert the first recovery disk and reboot the computer. The recovery process will begin when the system reboots.
Use the Recovery Partition To Revert Your Sony VAIO TO Factory Default
While you should have a set of recovery disks for your Sony computer, you can actually use that recovery partition to restore your computer to factory condition.
Power on the computer and press F10 several times.
Choose Start Recovery Wizard
Follow the onscreen prompts.
The restore process should take less than an hour to complete. When finished, the computer will restart and you will be presented with a Sony VAIO that has been reverted back to factory defaults. Be sure to immediately run Windows Update, install an anti-virus
(unless there is already one installed) and then reinstall your back-up data and programs. Your Sony computer should now run faster and be more reliable.
