OS Not Found

Purchased my Sony Vaio in Aug 2010. Running smoothly until yesterday. Now I get the blue screen of death and "Operating System" not found message. Tried tapping F10 to restore. No dice. Any suggestions? I don't have recovery disks.

Re: OS Not Found

If the recovery partition won't boot up, you need your recovery discs. You can buy them at 800.488.7669.

Re: OS Not Found

If pressing [f10] at POST does not get you to the "Edit Boot Options" screen then did you create a set of recovery software?
if so use the software and run a Hardware diagnostics. perhaps a restore point will correct your issue. can you get into windows at all? [F8] into Safemode? if absolutely nothing gets you to windows or the partition then yes you will need to obtain a set of recovery software DVDs. since you did not mention your model you can get the software two ways by calling the above number, or simply purchase them directly at the site.
