SF2MJ Posted September 21, 2008 Share Posted September 21, 2008 I have a Sony Vaio laptop.Just recently i turned it on and got a message on a black screen saying "disc read error...press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart.Which i did....the laptop restarted and i got the same message again.It just keeps going in a loop.So i put in my recovery cd.It says starting recovery ... then i go to a blue screen which is the bit when i should start getting windows popping up asking me do i want to format c drive etc.But instead the laptop just hangs on the blue screen.No windows pop up asking me what i want to do next or anything.The recovery cd stops spinning.And that's it. What i wanted to know is this...is there a way i can format c drive without using the recovery cd?Is there a way to bring up a dos command screen during the start up process so the i can maybe type FORMAT C: and go from there?
