Vista / Vaio laptop help

Post by djorchard on Tue 25 Nov 2008, 6:46 am

ive downloaded some nasty malware and cant do anything in normal windows mode without crashing in 3 minutes. so i cant download hijack this or anything for that matter. the only solution ive found to be promising is to just pop in the recovery cd and start from scratch ( sense i can do this in safe mode and avoid crashing ). i spent 700$ on this laptop and it never came with a recovery cd. i called vaio support and its going to be 20$ for the cd... Bah... here is the model number for my laptop N325E (vista). Anyone got one i can borrow or know where i can get one? the computer im using right now does have a cd / dvd burner!

I answered your PM, run HJT in safe mode if you can, it will give me a place to start atleast.

So normal mode and safe mode are out.
Can you boot from CD and do a repair install?

No, repair install is different.
Unless you have the needed CD, I don't think we can do much.
