Thanks for the replies; I tried F10 too and it doesn't give me any recovery/restore options, only something to do with memory... and with F8 or F9, there are options to do restore, or recovery using an image but not without it. It gives these actually:
- Startup repair (tried it, nothing got fixed)
- System restore
- Recovery using a pre-made image
- Windows memory diagnostic tool
- Command prompt
is there no other way? If I could get windows to work, at least then maybe I could try VAIO Care, because it offers recovery, but DOS doesn't seem to right now.
