I don't know anyone in Montreux, but there is Logics, in Vevey, just behind the station near the Migros. I'm sure you can find them online.
They looked after my Vaio very well when I lived nearby.

Re: vaio laptop technical problem

The Vaio would have come with a recovery CD/DVD (or two). And a book with instructions. If you only have the CD then boot into it and see what happens. If it boots normally, then click "setup" on the CD - it should tell you what to do (i.e. how to boot off the CD).

If you don't have the CD then you need to re-install Windows and all the Sony drivers (which you can download off the net - the standard Windows drivers will be good enough to get you online). So you need a friend's Windows CD/DVD. And to boot off that. And when asked for a licence code it will be in the book, or stuck to the bottom of the laptop.

If what I'm writing makes no sense, take it to a repair shop or ask an IT literate friend for help!
