Can anyone tell me how to recover my vaio laptop? The hard drive crashed. The problem is compounded by the fact that the optical drives doesn't work. The BIOS doesn't have the option of USB boot. The only silverlining is I have the recovery discs but can't use them as the optical drive is not working. I have a hard drive docking statiion and 2 more compueters at home. Is there any way I can reset it back to factory settings? perhaps takes the hard drive out and reformat it using the docking station...???? Not sure how to do it. Any help will be greatly appreciated..
