    Although I have a different model I have the exact same problem. Originally it was only an issue now and then and sometimes restarting would correct it but the left mouse button has now not worked for about a week. I've had the laptop about 2 years but luckily took out the extended guarantee so will be sending it back for fixing.

It's most likely a loose cable inside the notebook then makes contact intermittently. Or, your touchpad is faulty.

It might be worth having the machine looked at by someone certified to take it apart.

The left button of Mousepad(one on laptop, but not touch pad) is often not working and sometimes need to press hard. Model VGN-NR38M, Sony Vaio. please help


I had the same problem . The micro switch needs to be replaced . All push button micro switches have a certain amount of "clicks" before they loose ability to make a good contact . Your left click switch has exceeded its life and can no longer make a clean contact without more pressure . Eventually the spring in the switch will fail thus stick permanantly.You will have to take it to an authorized Sony Service center or maybe an office machine service department might have the replacment . I fixed my own with an old mouse microswitch .

My laptop left mouse button has stopped working


Common hardware problem. The correct solution is a replacement tracker pad and mouse, however you may be able to get the problem fixed by cleaning under the pad. Either way it requires taking the laptop apart.

My left mouse button on sony vaio vng-nw150j isn't working


Generally, if a mouse button quits working, it requires the replacement of the touchpad assembly.
Boot to the safe mode, see if the button works there, if it doesn't, then it is a failure of the switch in the button

Eject button on Vaio won't work


t seems like people are having problems with getting the Fn Brightness and CD Eject Keys working when installing XP.

The following files and install method works here:


01. Install SFEP [AR51] (Right Click - Install SonyNC.inf)

02. Install Sony Shared Library [AR51] and Restart when prompted

03. Install Sony Utilities DLL & Settings Utility Series [BX4]

04. Install VAIO Event Service. Select Custom and Check VESUnique and Sound [BX4]

05. Copy AR51 Vista VESConfig.ini (from attached zip file) to folder C:\Program Files\Sony\VAIO Event Service

06. Start - Run services.msc

07. Find Vaio Event Service in the Services list and Restart the Service.


Your Fn and EJECT Buttons should now work.
