I recently bought a brand new Sony Vaio PCV-RS 420 from best buy and have been having problems ever since. The 120 gig hard drive is partitioned oddly (13 gig for drive c, and 107 for drive d) and I dont know if that is why. At least 2 times per day my computer will suddenly and with no warning reboot. There is no pattern to why it is rebooting, except it seems to happen more often when I am running DVD X Copy Xpress.
My problem is that the computer did not come with the actual XP Disk. I always thought that you were supposed to get the backup disk incase xp needed to be reinstalled.
Is there something I can do to reinstall XP without the disk?
I have the windows xp sticker of authorization on the computer, maybe this will help?
