Hello there,

 

I am not sure if others have different thoughts on this.

 

There are some computers that was able to have FBI Virus that can still be booted to safemode just in case if not. 

 

The next thing to do is to do a Full Factory Format, for your files and documents. You can try to look for a professional who could try to back up your files or here.

 

To go to Safemode: F8

To go to Vaio Recovery Partition: F10

 

Regards,

Hello there, 

 

Thats very rare not to work. Make sure that the computer is completely shut down. To make sure that the computer is shutdown, you can try to Press and Hold the power button for straight 10 seconds, and once done. Press the power button once and keep on tapping F8 or F10 as many times as you can. 

 

If this still didn't work.

 

Based on the specs of your computer you should have a Assist Button on top of your keyboard. While the computer is completely shutdown. Press the Assist Button. 

 

If all else fails, I am afraid that the FBI Virus already corrupted even your recovery partition then its time to get a Recovery Media Disk. You can contact - Parts and Accessories at 800-488-7669.

 

Will you the best,

 

Marcus
