which linux distro could be the best for my VGN-nr130 fe?

Im a newbie and i have this vaio VGN-nr130fe laptop whit windows vista as OS.
The device got virus infection and i want to clean the memory entirely {the hard disk and ram and stuff like that}{im sure of it and i dont need anything that it contains}.
Need to know wich is the best distro to my laptop and help to install it.
I want to start from zero supposing that i would have a new laptop whit linux in it

Please, it would be awesome

Best regards and all the best for you

Best advice is to try a few distros. Don't rely on other peoples' opinions too much.

yes, there are live CDs, you do not need to install them just boot and test/check....

How much ram is installed that will make a difference in what is recommended.
the advise about trying several live cd's is good. With the age of that laptop though some may not
work well as they need newer video cards - I'd try a distro with lxde or mate or xfce desktops.
Happy hunting. I'm sure there will be a distro that suits your needs.

Sony's often are difficult to get linux going on but it can be done
