Last week, when I was using my Sony Vaio, the hard disk just suddenly broke down.

When I went to the customer service center, they told me that the only way to fix it was to reformat it.

Problem is there is no available CD-ROM on my Sony Vaio. Is there a way possibly reformat my laptop?

Can you please give me suggestions that are working?

Thanks!
