I want to uninstall windows 7

I have a vaio notebook fz348e running vista (before) and
I did a clean install on win 7, now win 7 don't recognize
some of the devices (graphics card, can't play bluray disc)
i just want to restore vista again but it wont let me by using the vista recovery cd, I called sony tech support
and they blame it on the recovery cd and I'm 100% sure
there's nothing wrong with the cd coz i tried it before and also tried it on the other computer...thanks in advance
