Hello,
I have a sony vaio laptop.I want to set it back to factory settings. I do not have a recovery disk. I am using windows vista. How do I do this ?

On many Sony models, holding
alt + F10
(together) at boot will start the factory restore process

Alt + F10 is working fine to get factory default set up menu in Sony Vaio.
Thanks for your details

i have a recovery centre on my vaio so I went onto that then I pressed RESTORE COMPLETE SYSTEM. I thought I might need recovery disks but I didnt. After an hour it's like brand new. Plus because it's gone back to the original factory settings i've got two months free trial of mcafee security just like when I first got my vaio. I only restored my system because I had malware called FRAUD.ANTIVIRUS7 which was killing my computer but luckily thats now gone.

:) how simple.... was kicking myself as I had recovery disks for other laptops but not for the one I needed and I was getting problems as I went into windows and couldn't use it from my programs
