Diane -

Are you saying you ran Vaio Factory Recovery? VAIO Computer Recovery Options Guide
Did you boot it using the F10 key as quickdraw suggested earlier?

And the "restore disk" you say it made is this to back up your data or did it burn Recovery to a disk to boot and run? It's a good idea to have the disks made in case the F10 Recovery should fail.

That was a good guess at F10 there, quickdraw, considering she hadn't posted her System Specs!

They're not always this easy, and we've helped here with thousands of these.
