Helping out a friend here.Sony Viao on boot up displays 'config sys file missing or corrupt'. Unable to progress past this. As far as I know this is a new machine and no Restore Point has been created. Any ideas?
I had this problem click here Following the instructions from click here I was able to talk a novice through the procedure and it cured the problem. Although it looks daunting, well it did to me, going very carefully step by step (and relaying the information by 'phone) it took about ten minutes.
Your course of action depends on whether you feel able to try the above and how convenient it is to return the laptop. That said, -pops- is quite correct in saying that the machine should be returned if new.
