When I turn on my Sony Vaio the Vaio logo appears for about 45 seconds then black screen and operating system not found. I have no idea what to do to get my info off of the computer so that I can do a restore, or if there is a way to do that. I am computer illiterate when it comes to nitty gritty stuff so dumb it down for me please :)

Thanks,
Tara
