terrychin,

 

If the recovery partition is still intact you can recovery the unit back to factory with the F10 or the Assist key.

Re: sony vaio VPCEA45FG laptop can factory reset without cd?

when i click f10 that show "bootmgr is missing", press ctrl+alt+del to restart..

so how?

before i still can go into the os, after i use this at the comment promt.. my com cannot go into the os ..

 

At the command prompt

type: diskpart
type: list disk
type: select disk 0 (should be disk 0 if only 1 disk)
type: list partition
type: select partition 1 (should be partition 1 if only 1 operating system)
type: active
type: exit
close the command windows  & restart .

 

now my com stuck at the  "bootmgr is missing", press ctrl+alt+del to restart..

 

just can click f2 for the bios setting.. other f8 f10 delete no function..

terrychin,

 

It look like it's not booting into Windows anymore.  You can try a Windows repair disc if you have one.  Make sure you're doing the F10 correctly and that is you need to keep on tapping F10 right when you power on the unit.  If it does not to into the recovery console/partition then there is something wrong with the hidden partition and it's no longer bootable.  At this point you might need the recovery media discs.  Here is the Sony Support website for your unit.

terrychin,

 

No, the Sony website does not have the recovery image for you to download.  You'll need to purchase the recovery discs.  Since this is an Asia Pacific unit you'll need go to here for support.
