I bought a new VPCSB38GA laptop since one month. after few days, it became very slow. i dont know why. may be incompatible software or program, I dont know. I formatted the hard disk without creating recovery discs. Now I want to reinstall the preinstalled software again. Not all of the soaftware are available on the sony site of this specific model.Also the brightness function keys do not work. and also the graphics key(stamina and speed ), assisst button and vaio button do not work.
I contacted the local sony service here and they said they will reinstall the orginal genuine windows and that windows will have the orginal softwares on it. I s this true?
my questions are:
1- Is there a way to make these buttons work without formatting my system again?
2- how to reinstall the original genuine windows? Di i have to go to sony service?
3- will that windows contains the vaio preinstalled software?
4- what do the recovery discs reinstall? (supplied with the laptop are recovery discs for 32bit software only) do they contain drivers and softwares or not?
5-what if the battery charges until 80% only and said "not charging"?
