Laptop problems.......................Sony Vaio PCG9L2P

Hi, I'm sorry to have to ask for help, but, I have 3 big annoying problems.

First: When I turn it on I have to press Prt SysRq button constantly so it will boot , otherwise wont boot and makes a continuous loud ringing noise.

Second : After boot, anything I type is shown backwards until I press the spacebar, then the typing is shown correctly, but sometimes programs will not scroll until I hit the spacebar again.

Thirdly: The letter C will not work so I have plugged in an usb keyboard.
I would like to use the keyboard on the laptop.
Hope you can help
Mike

    Thanks Josh,

    I'll open it up tomorrow and have a look.

    How do I replace the letter C if that's what needed.

    Where do I get a letter C?

    I'm in Australia but can probably deal with your sources if you can advise .

    Thanks again

    Mike

    I cannot get the scroll button unstuck on my laptop, when i press the scroll button, the light above the button will not go off and I cannot use any other letter buttons to type anything because it shows something other than the letters or #'s I type

You cannot just replace one letter on a laptop keyboard. You have to replace the whole keyboard. Make sure you get the correct part for your model of laptop.

Using a USB keyboard should pose no problem, just plug it in and it should work fine.

The other problems are difficult to diagnose without using tools to work on it.

First make sure you don't have a stuck key.

Checking whether the laptop keyboard/cable is seated correctly or removing it and reseating it may stop the problem.

If you do this be sure the laptop is not plugged in and the battery is removed.

I'm not familiar with sony laptops though most laptops if you remove the panel with the power button, sometimes held on by screws beneath the battery, you can remove two or three screws to remove the keyboard.

Doing this may solve your problem though I've never seen such a problem before. You either have a bad keyboard or motherboard.

I would guess the keyboard first since C does not work and you have to press Prt Scr/Print Screen to make it boot to stop a ringing noise. It kind of sounds like you may have a stuck key and since C does not work it would most likely be C that is stuck.

Hi i have a sony vaio, if i restart it or switch it off on the power switch when it comes back on the screen is either black or dark, if i can catch the f8 to restart it again then hibernate it, when i...


unfortunately, when this happens on a sony vaio it is not fixable economically. there is a part inside that makes the screen backlit, and it is powered by another part that sits deep inside of the laptop and technicians like to steer away from this one.

I had a friend with a sony vaio and it was a nice older model from 1995 or so, and it had the same problem, but worse.

sorry.

Internal fuse need replacing


Sorry, but i don't think there is fuse on motherboard.
More likely its a loose DC socket cable to motherboard or faulty AC adapter.
If Dc - ok, AC - ok, then its a faulty motherboard.

Tv turner not working in sony vaio VGN-AX570G


Hi,
I have to ask this question, due to people posting in wrong categorys.
Is This A Sony-Vaio VGN-AX570G Laptop Computer, your struggling to find drivers for ?
All Vaios Come With Restore Disks. If you have these i,d suggest doing a system restore, whereby all of your original Vaio Software will be repaired-replaced on your hard-drive.
If you don,t have the Vaio Restore Disks, you can purchase on-E-bay for About £15.00.
No help on Vaios support Site For That Actual Model.
