Re: An Error Code occurs during a System Recovery.

Use the following table to diagnose an error code that occurs during a system recovery.

NOTES:

  • The error codes in the table below occur when using the Recovery discs or F10 to perform the system recovery, not when using the VAIO Recovery Center from the operating system.
  • If the table indicates Recovery disc failure, the disc may be dirty. Verify the disc is clean.
  • Reset the BIOS defaults and try to perform a system recovery again before determining the computer requires service.

IMPORTANT:

  • If an Error 403 message is displayed when attempting to perform a recovery on a new or unpartitioned hard drive, restart the computer to the Recovery disc. Once at the VAIO Recovery Center window, choose Restore Complete System, and then choose Skip. The error will occur when choosing any option other than Restore Complete System.
  • For Error 320 or 330, if possible, run the RAM hardware diagnostics to determine if the RAM has failed. If the RAM passes the test, only the HDD requires service.

Thanks. I wrote from my Desktop because the laptop was a mess.

 

I think the problem I have was caused by the Vista Recovery disks. I used my XP recovery disks and all is fine.
