I just need to ask, can I use a normal win xp cd to repair sony vaio missing or corrupt files without destrying all other data on it?

If it's the same version, yes. You could try a system file scan before trying a repair if that is what you are asking.
Start/Run/ and type sfc /scannow

Hi rawprawn,
sorry I dont think I made myself clear, the system wont even boot because its saying driver file is corrupt or missing, can I uae a normal win xp cd to repair the already installed vaioby booting from it and running thru to the repair process.

yes as long as it is the same type i.e. XP home on disc and machine, a pro disc will not repair a home installation
