mmm - Possibly a visit to Sony may discover them? They may agree to sell/send you a set?

Equally a google trawl may bring them up I know that many are out there for the assorted makes (Acer etc...).

And finally (as per the late Walter Cronkite...) can you not make a set from the system as is? Usually there is (these days) an included util to this end on the installation as is; and one is often advised/encouraged to make a set as soon as one boots up and logs onto a new system successfully? This regardless of whether or not you are also supplied with a set as part of the orignal deal.

According to Sony, this system did not ship with recovery media. This link details how to create recovery media from the hidden recovery partion on your hard drive:

If you've had a hard drive failure and the recovery partition is no longer accessable, check this link to see how to purchase recovery DVDs from Sony:
