If you can manage to bring up msconfig from the Start, Run command I would stop all unimportant start up tasks for the time being. I prefer malwarebytes and ccleaner for maintenance on my systems. If interested here's the links :)

Good luck!

I agree with acdr, do a complete virus scan before you go ahead with the full system recovery

There are probably some corrupt files on the harddrive or there is damage on the hard drive. I would suggest to try using the windows setup cd or sony recovery cd to restore the system back to normal, if the problem is not solved by that then you most likely have a hardware problem which is most likely in the harddrive, might have to replace it, they don't cost much.

The Windows was corrupted by viruses. Reinstall and next time use a better antivirus. I recommend Avast which is free for home use.

Vaio VGN-FZ340e freezes without reason!


Possibly you have a programme running in the background that is causing the freezes, could be a screensaver. i think at sometime microsoft will issue an update that will fix this problem.

Sony Vaoi built cam doest work on messenger


i have a gateway fx gameing laptop!! i was having probs with the cam going dark on me after a bit while using yahoo messenger..it was also freezing up but that i found out was cause yahoo SUCKS **** LOL...
i downloaded msn messenger, not msn live, and the cam works fine.. so it is yahoo.. i do know that sometimes my cam will sometimes go darker in resolution if i bend the top down a bit.. its doing that because the cam is thinking that im turning it off by shutting the laptop!
does the web cam work with the software it came with? can u turn it on and see urself when NOT using a messenger? if so then it might just not want to work with those 2 messengers which is weird!!!!!
MAKE SURE THAT U DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAM SOFTWARE on that came with the laptop at the same time as trying to use it with the messengers!! see if that works and ill check back with you!

laptops did not come with the high end state of the art web cams! they were made for ease not for exceptional quality!

Laptop problems


hi

possibly ur system has a virus or a spyware.
visit www.donloads.com
go for "AVG" it usually comes for free.
also go for some anti ad ware and spyware(can be found on this site also)

run a whole system scan

if there is no virus found then i am afraid u hav to reinstall ur OS.
in any case do let me know.
