I have a Sony Vaio computer, That in order to reinstall I have to use their recovery cd. I have an XP pro upgrade cd. My problem is I am having problems with office xp that reinstall of office can't fix and now I am having problems with Microsoft Picture it. Would I be better to use my sony cd or should I just upgrade to XP Pro? Or can I put in the XP Pro cd and do a repair? I know with both options I will have to reformat the c: drive. I don't have personal files on my c: drive so that is not a problem. I just wish I wouldn't have to keep doing this. When I got my Geforce 4 card I had to use my sony cd just to get the card to work.
