restore sony vaio laptop

how do i restore my sony vaio to factory settings without restore disc. when i turn my computer on my computer it’s a black safe mode screen. I am then able to type in my password however when I enter my password I then get a white screen and nothing else. My computer keeps restarting on the password screen. How can I do a system restore through safe mode command prompt section?

You cannot restore it back to factory through safe mode.  You can restore it back to factory if the recovery partition is intact.  You can enter it by pressing F10 or the Assist button to boot into that partition.
