    Thanks broe23. You're the expert, not me. I appreciate all of the help, and I'll wait and see if Ztruker has anything else to add

    Without a install DVD there isn't anything else I can think of to do.

    Maybe contact the laptop manufacturer and order the recovery DVD then use it to restore the computer to it's factory new state.

    If it were me I'd replace the hard drive.

    From what I can find the Sony Vaio E14P is not sold in the US. Did you buy it in another country?
