I have a two year old Sony Vaio (pcg-grz630) with a Windows xp operating system. For the past two months it will shut down with no patterns of when or why. Two nights ago it shut down and will not boot back up. It simply states ‘operating system not found’. I have tried to enter safe mode, by pressing f8, during the booting up process but only get beeped at, which in turn causes the same error message to repeat itself.
To make matters worse, my cd drive stopped working many months ago and I use an external drive, which makes using my restore discs useless.
If anyone can help me, at least to retrieve some pictures, it would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
