Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N250N/B Notebook

2 Answers

Wireless problem I bought my new Sony Vaio NS11 2 weeks ago and it starts to have problems. The button who showes if the wirless is on or off doesn't work anymore and I can not use the internet. When I want to search for an wireless network, it says that I have to turn on my wireless, but it's already turned on. I don't know what to do to fix it, cause I don't think that is normal after 2 weeks to have such a problem with it. It was very expensive and I realised that I shouldn't buy just for the brand...Sony. I appreciate when someone can help me. Thank you very much.

At two weeks since purchase you are well with in the standard one year warranty... if the other fellow's advice about the network card is not helpful, call sony and get it fixed!

Check in the network settings if the wireless network card isn't disabled.. if windows has disabled it you can flick the switch as much as you like it wont help.

If you dont know where to re enable it, let me know what version of windows you are running... and ill set out more detailed instructions

PS.... As a general rule of thumb, you could have bought something worse than a Sony Vaio, not bad choice....

Wireless does not appear in VAIO smart network. I have had this mini vaio working very well for 3 years. A week ago the wireless inet stopped working and doesn't even appear in the smart network box,...


You didn't post the Sony Model number or the OS you are using? Have you tried , unplugging, remove battery, plug in, reboot? Open the Control Panel , select Device Manager, scroll down to Network Adapters, open, do you see the Wireless Adapter? Is it enabled? Try to Update Driver. Have you done ALL your Windows and Sony updates? If the Network Adapter has a red X in the Tray Notification Area, it's there but not connected. Click on the Icon and see what Available Networks appear. If your wireless is working, Choose your SSID, enter Security Key and connect.

NVidia is the manufacturer of the display driver and if not installed will not work properly. I suggest re loading updated drivers from Sony.com because re starting the laptop like that will damage some drivers, especially the display driver software.
That should solve your problem.

My wireless has stopped working on my sonyvaio laptop and the light will not come on the wireless indicator?


you can check the drivers of the wireless card in the device manager underneath network adaptor .If you find any mark on it like "!,?,X " then you need to update the wireless drivers from the motherboard cd that you receive with the laptop or else you can go to the sony drivers and downloads  website to download the latest drivers and you will be good to go.

Hi, Sony has announced that they have a problem with the drivers sofware.
As a possible solution download and install the driver update for your model Vaio from the following link:

Wireless N and 4 to 5 year old sony vaio's


Any VAIO Computer released 4 to 5 years ago is not equipped with a wireless card that supports 802.11N WLAN standards. All the older VAIO Computer supports 802.11 a/b/g wireless standard. Because of this hardware compatibility issues the Computer is crashing.

For this issue Sony has not released any general update. However, you may visit the Sony site for specific model to check for any update release to address this issue.

Sony vaio vgn fw21l,loose hinge


I am a PC Technician, I also happen to own a Vaio with this cool but very fragile power button. It will be okay to leave it like that.I had the same issue and I repaired mine because I have experience tearing down laptops. The labor to get to that little plastic piece is extensive. If the situation arises I can explain to you how to do this, ill even have pictures as it is nearly impossible to find service manuals for new Vaios. But it will be fine if it is a little loose.
