    I bought a brand new sony vaio laptop a few months back and created a backup dvd soon after i got it... Now i've been having a few probs with it lately so i want to try and reinstall windows to see if it fixes the problem but i've never done it before so my question is...

    is it as simple as following the onscreen instructions?

    How long will it take?

    Will the backup disk i created likely have all the drivers etc or will i need to download them separately?

    it's windows 7 if that makes any difference

    thanks!

    http://xkcd.com/349/ This comic captures the essence of messing with computers quite well. I suggest you try other means to fix the problems first.

    ...well, I just tried to update my Java plugin but failed. I had to revert to the old version and lose all my cookies...
