Question about Sony Computers & Internet

The touch pad and 'click' buttons on my Sony VGN-A115Z laptop have stopped working since I had to use the recovery procedure due to loading what I think was some corrupt software. Is there a 'switch'or similar that needs to be activated to restore activation?

Hello.

Your touch pad driver has probably not installed corectly.

I suggest you download the driver pack provided by sony here:
http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk/downloads/preinstalled/preinstalled.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&m=1674
extract the archive after download and run Apoint.exe from the PointingStickDriver directory

Hope this helps!

I have a VGN-CS118E and it's media touch buttons don't work, only the AV button works


Hi,

The touch sensor buttons that control the AV Mode, volume, play, fast forward, etc. may stop working if the Synaptics Pointing Driver is uninstalled or if the file is corrupted. Follow this procedure to reinstall the Synaptics Pointing Driver.

Downloading and installing the Synaptics driver update available through the below link on this page will also resolve this issue.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCS118E&upd_id=3783&os_id=28

After installing, reset the BIOS to its default values.
Click the Start button, and then click on Computer .
In the Computer window, under Hard Disk Drives , double-click on (C:) .
Double-click the Windows folder.
Double-click the DRIVERS folder.
Double-click the .EXE folder.
Double-click the Pointing Driver (Synaptics) folder
Double-click on the setup or setup.exe icon.
Follow the Synaptics Pointing Driver Installation wizard instructions to install the driver.

When the installation setup is complete, a You must restart your computer to apply these changes window will appear. Choose the Restart Now button for proper installation .


Thanks!!!!

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.

Problem with hibernating mode


the hibernate mode is cancelled due to some motion in computer aplication for example: when you press any button in key board than the sestem restart or else if the mouse is touched than the system comes out of hibernate mode. Your cause woud be of due to of mouse movement. so if you want to avoid it than you just need to cover the touch pad with a piece of cloth
