I need help with a Sony Vaio All-in One Computer. I do not have anything important on my system that I want to keep, and I am looking to wipe my hard drive and reinstall Windows 7 with factory settings. I have the "Vaio Windows 7 Recovery Media for Windows 7 Products" which is a set of disks. How to I start fresh on my computer.

Your Sony may also have a built-in recovery partition on the hard drive that can be used to restore to factory state.
What is the full model number of your Sony?
Edit: Found this - How to recover the computer to the original factory condition using the F10 key.
