    My laptop does not boot

    Following information is about: VAIO VGN-Z650N Windows Vista Business 64bit

    So last night I ran the system restore. The laptop shut down and didn't boot up.

    Now when I turn it on, after the black page with "VAIO" logo shows up, the next thing is a totally black screen with a cursor at its top left corner blinking.

    None of the F-keys work. Pressing them ends up to the same black screen I described.

    When I press F10, instead of the blinking cursor I see what you can have a look at in the attachment.

    Just had a 15min chat with a VAIO analyst and she said it seems that the recovery partition within the hard drive has been corrupted so I need to call 1-800-488-7669 to buy the recovery disks.

    Now my question is that first, can you guys think of any other solution? and secondly, what if the first boot device is not set to the CD-Rom! Will the recovery disks work in that case too?

    Please help.
