Hi, my 7 year SONY VAIO was not turning on because of an error so I decided to restore it to factory settings by pressing F10. After everything restored like the computer was first time out of the box it began giving me SMART messages of Hard Disk Error upon turning on my computer and I need to press F1 to proceed. I’m doing system restore again and every time the computer restarts now I have to press F1. This has never happened before and only began after I restored the computer to its factory settings. The computer worked for a day and then I couldn’t get past a black screen after the welcome screen. Safe mode also got stuck and froze up. I thought factory restore was supposed to get rid of all errors not revert the mission back to its previous bad state after 1 day. When the system allows me to get into the computer again, what should I do to prevent it from doing that black screen after it loads the welcome window? Should I uninstall and then install the graphics driver? Would a windows 7 reinstall disk have the same effect as a factory restore? Please help!
