I just bought a wiped laptop and all that comes up is the missing NTLDR thing. I have my discs to load, but I don't know how to do it. The computer is a Sony Vaio.

Welcome to geeks to go.

We will need a little more info.
What age is the laptop?
I assume that there is no OS on it since it was wiped.
What disks do you have?
Are they retail, OEM, restore cd's?
I assume you have a license?
Do you have a drivers cd for the laptop?
If not, depending on the cd, you may have to search for a driver on the internet. We can help if needed.
A re-install should not be a major undertaking.

Ok, if I sound stupid, it is because I have no clue what I am talking about so here goes. I have no idea the year, but on the bottom of the computer it says Model PCG-643L Sony Notebook Computer DC19.5V. It has a docking station with a cd drive and a disc drive. On the sticker on the bottom it must of at one time had windows xp. I have windows xp, the discs are from my home computer that came with it when I bought it. I want to load the Windows xp, Microsoft office and Lynksys for wireless control.

It does not have an OS, which I assume means operating system. Just that missing that NTLDR thing, when I rebott, it does not give me a setup option, it just goes directly back to the same message.

Finding a driver on the internet............I have no clue how or what all this computer language means. Does this info help?

Thanks,
Crystal
