Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N250N/B Notebook

1 Answer

Only prints one page! no matter what!

Ok so my vaio has this issue where no matter how many pages I tell it to print (and I've tried this on 3 different printers) my laptop will only ever print one page. This is especially frustrating when doing projects for work and need multiple copies! I've had the registery cleaned to sweep for bugs, but the prob is still there. Any ideas? As far as I can remember it's been doing this since I got the laptop new last year.

This sounds like something to do with the printer que, did you ever reload the entire operating system?

Printer prints 2-3 pages then stops.


Open the print queue in the system tray and look at the status of the stalled doc. try restarting the doc. If the printing is a large file it could be a memory problem. check device mgr (Ctrl Alt Del) to see memory usage

Print preview does not show full page


Go into the Page Setup for the email program that you are trying to print from and this should allow you to change the print settings.
For example, in Mozilla Thunderbird, if I go into File then Page Setup, on the Format & Options tab I get an option to Shrink to fit page width, plus can change the page orientation (Portrait or Landscape).
On the Margins & Header / Footer tab I get further options I can use to control how big the page margins are and what header and footer information gets printed, i.e. page title, page numbers etc.
Once you've changed the Page Setup values, see what has changed for you on the Print Preview

How to change hard drive on Sony VGN-N130G?


I need the model number printed on the front of your case, VGN-N130G does not exsist on the sony web support page. http://support.vaio.sony.eu/computing/vaio/index.aspx?l=en_GB

Usually there is a cover under your laptop that is marked.
Remove 1 or 2 screws and your harddrive should just slide out.

THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE WITH MY MARGINS. I have Microsoft word 2007, an HP Officejet Pro 8500 Premier and windows vista. After some research I found a commonality with my problem and these three operating...


The problem may lie in the printers setting for the margins. Do you set the margins only in word 2007 or do you check the printers margins too?

Also the issue may lie with the printer having the incorrect paper size

Have a look in the printer properties (When you go to print, its beside the printer selected) and look through there and see if there are any issues.

Hp photosmart c4580 (new) is not printing bottom line of page, also not printing centrally it misses words down the right hand side connected to advent windows vista can you help


Try printing a test page, if the problem appears there too, it could be a print head problem. But try a new ink cartridge first, to make sure that's not whats defective.

Since it's new, you should consider exchanging it while you can.
