My sister-in-law gave me her old Sony PCV-RX650 desktop with all of the recovery CDs. It had a MBR virus, so I formatted the hard drive, started the recovery...which was fine until I got to the second CD - it is cracked! Of course I didn't notice this until I went to use them.
I called Sony, they don't carry them anymore. I called Microsoft to see if they would at least give me a CD for WinXPHome to go with the key for the PC - No go (it was worth a free phone call!)
I found the CD set at only one place, PC Recovery Shop, but they are $32 + 12.50 to ship! What a rip off. I checked many other websites and ebay with no luck.
Does anyone have these or know where else I can get them? I really only need the second CD in the 3 disk recovery set. I think I can get all of the drivers etc. off Sony's website.
Hello there, rmazz, were you ever able to get a copy of that recovery cd set for the Sony pcv-rx650 desktop? If yes, I would greatly appreciate your help w/getting a copy. I am having the same problem you had fnding a recovery set! Allex, is it possible to get a copy of that set from you? Please let me know guyz and thank you for your time (that I would be more than glad to compensate you for, along w/all costs related to getting me a copy).
No, I never got the CD. I ended up buying a new copy of WinXP and loading it onto the PC, as well as all of the drivers that I could get from Sony. It worked, but I didn't avoid having to pay for a new operating system. Oh well.
Thx for the kind response rmazz. I'm staying hopeful that allex will get back to me and that it would be possible to grab a copy of his discs! Thanks again!
