Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS630/W Notebook

1 Answer

Start Up Issue on VGN-FS360/W

Recentlly I was helping a friend out with a problem on his USB to RS-232 cable which didn't work on his notebook so I installed the drivers in mine and it worked fine on mine. Once I removed the cable and restarted computer it wouldn't start only if I held on to control & Escape button simultaniouslly. (ODD) finally I backed up all my data on to a portable HD than proceded to do system recovery when it was all finished system rebooted and didn't want to start up, so followed same way as before by holding control & Esc simultaniuosly to restart computer. F8 & F10 keys do not work and cannot go to safe more or system recovery. The error now I get is

an error has been encountered that prevents set up from continuing.

Windows is unable to start because the registry could not be updated. To address this problem, please contact you computer manufacturer. Windows must now shut down.

Press Ok & it shuts down. I'm preety stumpped any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Heena has only rs 2 and rs 5 coins,in her purse. if in all she has 80 coins in her purse amounting to rs 232. find the number of rs 5 coin.


Is this a maths school problem?
You need to use algebra -
2x + 5y = 232 (heena has a number of 2 and 5 coins in her purse which add up to 232)
x + y = 80 (heena has x number of 2 and y number of 5 coins which tally to 80)
therefore, x = 80 - y
so going back to first equation, 2(80 - y) + 5y = 232
160 - 2y + 5y = 232
3y = 72
y = 24
and going back to x, x = 80 - y
x = 80 - 24
x = 56
so heena has 56 rs 2, and 24 rs 5. So the answer is 24.

A lot of laptop Serial ports DO NOT have the right connections in the Socket. you may need to try a USB to serial dongle. But this is a real problem unfortunately. You need to find out the exact wiring of the serial port in laptop, and check against connections needed for your interface, and perhaps wire up a cable accordingly. Or maybe try a Nul-modem

Can't get the PC to display on a TV through the RS-232 interface.


You can not connect a monitor to an RS-232. If your video card does not have a monitor output, you cannot connect a tv monitor to your computer... and the fact that it only shows the original monitor on the drop down menu tells me you can't add a TV to your system

Try purchasing some USB powered speakers. They will come with the USB cable and audio cable to plug in to the notebook.

My laptop doesnt detect USB Pen drives (sony vaio VGN-FJ 270)


Go to start->control panel->system->hardware->device manager. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. Right click on every USB root hub and select uninstall option. They will be reinstalled on next restart.
After that plug USB pen drive to usb port - go to start->control panel->system->hardware->device manager. Click Universal Serial Bus controllers then click on Action tab (the one at the top of Device manager window and select scan for hardware changes.
If that will not solve the issue try different USB port.
Make sure you have latest service pack installed so Windows would install proper drivers for the device.
Let me know if this is not solved

Vaio and micro sd


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since you have verified that the card works (in your phone) and that the adapter works (in another computer), then the issue could very well be with the Sony VAIO VGN-C140G/B. More specifically, the USB ports/drivers. Presumably that the Sandisk 2Gb Micro SD & the adapter were working before and that you are using Windows Vista, pls check your updates that has anything to do with USB. Alternately, you may want to rollback/downgrade the USB drivers and/or seek USB driver update from the Sony site rather from Microsoft.

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 your continued patronage of FixYa.
