SOURCE: desktop Icons

sounds like you have two stuck keys. The S key and the TAB key. Suggest that you disassemble keyboard and clean it with alcohol.

SOURCE: Icons on desktop

The icons that flash are probably shortcuts that start with S. The S key is causing both problems most likely. There are screwed labeled with K or a unique icon. All located on the bottom of chassis below keyboard. Remove them and life up the keyboard. Do this while the power is off. Disconnect the ribbon cable from the keyboard and remove it. Power on the laptop and let it boot. Once its to the desktop you can see your result. Then all you need to do is pop out the S key and spray contact cleaner underneath rubber contact sheet. You may have to remove some screws.

SOURCE: small icons and small letters

Hi,

You can try lowering your screen resolution. This is done by doing a right click on any clear area of your desktop. On the selection that will appear, do a left click on "Properties". Click on the "Settings" tab, move the slider for "Screen Resolution" towards the left. You have to try different settings till it satisfies your preference.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Add ram


Each computer contains two important components---a Central Processing Unit (CPU) and memory chips. The CPU and memory chips work together to process computations within your computer. You can't have one without the other. Your computer has a base amount of memory installed, 512 Megabytes or higher, that can be expanded to beyond 1 Gigabyte, in most cases. Before you upgrade your computer's memory, you need to know what type of RAM your computer takes: SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM), Rambus DRAM (RDRAM), DDR (Double Data Rate SDRAM) or other type.

Open your computer's Internet browser by clicking on the program's icon on your computer's "Desktop," this applies to both Windows and Mac platforms. Enter www.crucial.com/systemscanner/index.aspx in the URL box at the top of your browser's screen. The "Crucial System Scanner" tool application website will open. Click on the check box next to the wording "By selecting this box and clicking the download the scanner button, I agree to the Terms and Conditions." Click on "Download the Scanner." The "Opening CrucialScan.exe" dialog box will open. Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer if you don't see the "Open" or "Run" option or you are using dial-up or a slow Internet connection. The program will download and setup on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option. Navigate to the directory where you want to save the file, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system. Double click on the "CrucialScan.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option. Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning." The "CrucialScan.exe" program will run and appear in your computer's Internet browser. Scroll to the second section on the "Memory upgrades from Crucial.com -- Determine My Memory Needs" website. The section is labeled "Your XXXXX Specifications." The "XXXXX"s represent your computer's brand and model. Locate the wording "Each memory slot can hold..." Write down the this sentence on a piece of paper---this is the type of RAM your computer accepts. Click "File," "Print," "OK" to print this website, if you have a printer attached to your computer. If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible Hope this helps.

Speed up a Sony Vaio Laptop Model PCG-5B1L


Start by installing this program CCLEANER found here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ Run the cleaner, registry delete the results. Go to TOOLS> STARTUP disable all programs you do not need to start at windows startup. Next, Install MALWAREBYTES found here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Run a FULL scan , delete any results. NEXT, open IE9 in the top right corner of the page is a "gear" icon, left click>Manage add-ons, Toolbars and extentions, disable any TOOLBARS and the add-ons you do not need, move down to Search Providers, delete ones you do not use. Toolbars and extra search engines are killers on IE speed. Trim the weight to speed up you web broswer. The more that added to your broswer the slower it's go to be. Same with your laptop at startup.

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart

note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults

after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
