Hi I'm a new member..I'm old but I have some computer savvy. One of my computers -- Sony Vaio desktop touchscreen ---hard drive crashed 2nd time...1st time was in warranty..Sony sent new WD hard drive with four dvds for recovery...Worked fine but now after about 2 half years that hard drive crashed.....I couldn't find exact hard drive found a blue WD with a little more storage...Problem is although said successfully restoring start up files to the new hard drive I get message that I can't access my windows 7. Tells me to go back to my recovery . Sony says it's a software problem and the Windows 7 startup files are there.....Just can't be reached because I have to change the bios..... HELP......I don't want to spend a fortune on an old computer.....I'm learning TRYING to teach myself to use command prompt....Saw a bunch of files but don't know what's necessary. Maybe someone has had the same problem......I know the new hard drive is good.....Just need to get my Windows 7 back. The Computer is a Sony VAIO desktop Window Home Premium VPCJ117FX. The recovery dvds say they are VPCJ110FX series WINDOWS 7 recovery media for windows 7 products.
Any help would be appreciated
