Sony viao: disk drive


Jan 12, 2015

Yesterday I had to fix my laptop for having a black screen. This is the second black screen in 2 years. This time when I got the laptop on I received a disk drive error.

I was able to fix the disk drive. When I was purchasing the new disk drive the gentleman said that windows 8 is not stored on the hard drive it is embedded into the laptop.

Now I have the problem of no operating system on the laptop. I don't have recovery disks.

If it is true about windows 8 how do I get it to work. I always knew that hard drives had all the information on it and a recovery disk was always needed

Thank you
