Aside from hardware many things can slow up your PC:
  • If the C: drive is too full Windows is unable to allocate a proper virtual memory cache on the drive.
  • Your chosen anti-virus solution can even slow certain machines down (post what your running)
  • A high % of the time it is spyware/malware related
Just to make sure the machine is completely malware free you should download and run this program.

The Sony Vaio slow issue can be caused by reasons like lack of free disk space, registry corruption or redundancy, overload startup programs, virus attack, fragmented hard drive etc.

There are manual ways to get all those issues fixed but it costs time and energy, and most importantly it needs technical skills. So I'll recommend a quick yet easy speed up solution, as you can see here: http://www.sonyvaioslow.com/

On every computer motherboard there is what's called a UART chip. This chip is responsible for capturing every keyboard click, interpreting what letter it is, converting it to zeros or ones used by computers, and sending it to the processor for action. If this chip fails, even replacing the keyboard won't fix it.
Unfortunately this chip is usually part of the motherboard so the only way to replace it is to replace the motherboard, which usually isn't cheap. If you can live with the external keyboard you might want to stay with that. Otherwise, if you Google sony Vaio motherboards, I'm sure you can find a number of sources online to purchase a motherboard. Replacing one is tricky but not insurmountable if you take your time and can follow directions, also available online.
Best of luck! Hope this helps!

Try to clean the keyboard. Sometimes the key might got struck, check for the \ key whether it is struck or not. If the problem persists you have to call Sony service center.

if you look under your laptop there should be one screw that holds the door for the ram card take it out and take it with you to any computer store and buy the 1gb ram your maximum is 1.2GB or
1.5GB ram

make sure you do all of this maintenance with your computer off.

It is required to check whether it is a Hardware issue or issue related with any Software. For this, login to BIOS by continuously tapping the F2 key on the startup, if you can view vertical lines in the BIOS, it will be a Hardware issue related to the LCD monitor, and it is required to service the Computer in any service center. If the vertical lines disappear in the BIOS mode, the issue is with any of the Softwares or drivers installed in the Computer.
Resolution steps:
1. Check whether the installed video driver is compatible with the Computer. you can download Original shipped Video driver here.
2. You can also try updating the BIOS version by downloading and installing the BIOS updater.
Please try the steps in the same order as it is provided. All the best.
