Problems restoring Windows 7 on Sony VAIO VPCEE2S1E
I have a Sony VAIO VPCEE2S1E which I am trying to fix with no results.
I think the problem resulted from dropping it a couple of months ago, it has slowly deteriorated and slowed to the point that I just get a message when I boot it as follows:
“S.M.A.R.T. Hard Drive detects error. Please consider to back up the hardrive.”
When I proceed I get a message to tell me there is no operating system to load.
I read some forums and assumed the hardrive had gone. I purchased a new hardrive, fitted it and I get the same message coming up.
When I try and re-install Windows 7 with a CD the computer looks as though it is starting Windows and then starts loading Samsung Recovery Solution 4. This programme does not get the opportunity to load as I get the following message:
“This computer does not support Samsung Recovery Solution 4.”
I am not quite sure where to go from here and I keep going round in circles. Any guidance would be most appreciated.
