You can try a start up repair first as this may fix the problem easier without loosing any files.
You may want to test your memory with Memtest86 before doing a factory restore since this could be the problem.
You could test your hard drive with your hard drive mfg's utility since hard drive errors could also be the problem.
You can download the full Sony manual for your machine online and it will tell you the steps for doing a factory restore.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Before doing anything radical, post the error message - there may be an easy fix.

It never hurts to recover the system back to as bought state if you want.

Each company offers some way to do that. Some offer real disks, or you make them or you buy them. Some offer a F key at boot to do that. Some have a windows program to do that. See your owners manual for exact steps. And that is online also.

On a Sony you usually tap F10 key as laptop boots up and select appropriate option.
