My phone just can't upload them - keep getting an error message.
I will explain again...

I recently installed the 'media go' from pc companion software for my Sony phone. During installation my acer laptop crashed and now when I boot up I am asked to launch normally - which flashes a blue screen and the laptop restarts automatically. Or I can launch a system repair this is unsuccessful and I can then open the system recovery options. When trying to do a system restore I am shown two previous restore points but then I am told I must enable system protection on the local disk (C drive??? And cannot continue without doing so...
Is there any way of doing this through a command prompt??

Let's try something different since we are having a problem with System Restore. == If you have a Win 7 DVD, try to boot with it and select Startup Repair. If you can run that you might be on your way to getting this fixed. Run Startup Repair three times.
