I have a Sony Vaio PC which will not boot. Although I have had this Pc for a number of years it has been trouble-free for quite some time. Anyways to the point, last night after booting the Pc a screen titled 'Pc Device Listing' was displayed. I have tried F2 (bios menu) and restored to default settings with no luck. I have also tried F8 (Safemode) again no luck. Prior to the booting problem my computer was fully up-to-date in terms of windows service pack/antivirus/firewall etc. The only option I have is to use the Sony Vaio Recovery Disc. Thankfully I have this disc however before using it I would like to clarify a few things. The disc says it will re-install the factory settings to drive C:, does this mean I will lose all my data that was stored in the 'my documents folder' e.g. Word files, photos, mp3 songs etc? and if so is there a possibilty of backing up this data before resetting to factory settings?
Any help would be appreciated, Thankyou.
