    problem with my access in C drive


    Hello to all,
    Recently I have bought a new computer haing windows 8 as operating system.Unfotunately, my screen just blocked and showed onlythe cursor in a black font. Reading some some forums i decided to perform a refresh (notice that my computer is sony vaio) . The system went back to operation but now I lost all my application and I can not download and run anything (even the firefox). It seems that it is a problem with my access in C drive which I can not access since it gives me a message error 'C is not accessible access is denied. Thank you very much in advance!!! excuse me for my english

    Did your receive any instructions on how to return your computer to factory fresh, and have your tried doing so? See my sig in this regard.

    If you can't return to factory fresh, then your problem may be a difficult one to solve all things considered. I am assuming you did nothing that should have caused such a problem. Given that the computer is new, and assuming that you can still do so (and that you can't restore it to factory fresh), I'd return the computer--either to a brick and mortar store or via RMA. I'd at least call your OEM's support providers.

    Thank you very much for your answer. I refreshed my computer based on the instructions so i assumed tha i reinstalled the operating system correctly. Because I really need my computer I prefer first to try solve it by myshelf instead of waiting for the technicians to fix it.

    You are very welcome. Are you programs still installed? If so, then you were successful.
