It is a shame. Today I'm looking at my daughter's Sony Vaio PCG-K13 notebook computer. It's stopped working. We have no recovery discs, restore disks, whatever you choose to call them. I've tried the place online that claims they have every disk you could ever need - or they'll get it for you. But they've failed me. http://restoredisks.com/
Now I'm turning to anyone, anyone at all on the internet who can help me find the required disks to get this thing going again. Sony gave me some song and dance about how Microsoft only allows them to manufacture so many discs. Apparently this number is less than one per system, because we got none with this machine. Yes, now I know we were supposed to make our own when the thing was new, but we didn't understand that at the time. Hewlett Packard, Compaq, Toshiba, Dell, and Apple have always had discs available for purchase if we lost the ones that came with our machines. Sony is 0 for 2, as far as I'm concerned. No disc with the machine, no disc available for purchase. Booo Hisss.
If you can help please click the comments link at the end of this post and leave a comment. I'd gladly pay for the discs.
