my friend has a sony laptop bought in the era when some makers stoped supplying windows CDs.
the computer not used for a month, charged battery up but will not boot, I suggested using a windows boot up disk and running scandisk. anyone offer any better advice please.[has no recover or back up cd either]

Sounds good try it and see what happens.

What error message are you getting on boot?

Can you use F8 to boot into safe mode?

Is the hard drive read at all and can you go into bios?
