Factory reset

If I restore my Vaio to factory settings using the assist button, will it erase everything including the OS? Or will it just bring it back to how it was when I first purchased it? Thank you!!

Hello klamora19,

 

A factory recovery will erase the OS first and then restore all software back to the way it was when you bought it.

Re: Factory reset

So it will end up with all the original installed software? Thank you! I was nervous to reset it for fear of ending up with nothing.

Re: Factory reset

Yes a recovery from the VAIO Recovery Wizard will restore all originally installed software.

 

Make sure that if you have any other software licenses such as Microsoft Office, to locate the product key before performing the recovery.  You will need the product key for such software to re-activate after the recovery.
