OEM RESTORE CD's-GARBAGE+
Well sadly the recovery cd's came in today and what I had thought was that the ones I had were the wrong ones, but alas NOPE they sent me the EXACT same ones! And needless to say after 5 hours of restoring, they also did not work. Same exact message. ANyway thank you for all the info, just to clear things up, I had this laptop running with windows ulitmate before summer, the hard drive crashed I replaced it, recover cd's would not work, so I just wiped it and loaded ulitmate just so I would have a laptop that worked, I went to the sony site and downloaded all the drivers and anything that I could find for the laptop, but none fixed my funtion keys not working, or my S buttons, so I just used the laptop for personal use. Now however school is back on and I thought I could fix it correctly, but I hit the same dam wall. I am taking autocad second year and I need the function keys to work. I had autocad on this laptop last year before the drive crashed. summer vacation came so I did not worry about it. But now I am worried. I really have to fix this right. I will look into the bios thing. thank you all for your info.
