Sony vaio all in one touchscreen stopped working


XP and Vista Normal Mode Start your computer as you normally would. Click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. Go to "C:\ Program Files\Sony\Setting Utility Series." Find and choose the "VCCPointingDevice" folder in the "Setting Utilities Series folder" to open the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Locate the "Enable" box on the "Built-in Pointing Device" dialog box. Check the box to enable the Vaio touchpad if you wish to use this device. Disable the touchpad if it is interfering with the external mouse. Uncheck the "Enable" box if you have a USB (PS/2) mouse connecting to your Vaio and wish to use that instead of the built-in touchpad. Pick "Yes, I'm Sure" when prompted to activate your choice, then close all the windows. Windows 7 Normal Mode Launch Windows as usual. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Mouse" > "Pointing Device" to open the Vaio touchpad control center. Uncheck the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you wish to use your external mouse. Check the "Enable" box on the "Pointing Device" window when you want to use the Sony Vaio touchpad. Make sure the external mouse is not interfering with the touchpad if you have one connected. If so, unplug the mouse from your computer. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the "Pointing Device" window. Close all other windows. XP and Vista Safe Mode Restart your computer. Press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Add/Remove Programs." Find and delete all software for mice and pointing devices. Restart your computer in normal Windows mode. Proceed to next step if the problem persists. Restart your computer in Safe Mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Choose "Properties" on the drop-down list. Pick the "Device Manager" tab in the Properties window. Select the "Other Devices" folder and click on the "+" sign besides it. Delete all the devices under this "+" sign by clicking on the "Remove" button next to each of the items. Restart Windows in Normal Mode. Once Windows is operating, there will be a "New Hardware Wizard" pop-up that will load all the necessary drivers for the touchpad, mouse and other pointing devices. This should fix the corrupt driver for your Vaio touchpad. Windows 7 Safe Mode Reboot your computer and press the F8 key before the Windows welcome screen appears to enter Safe Mode. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Device Manager" > "Mice and other pointing devices." Click the touchpad icon. Choose the "Driver" tab and press the "Uninstall" button. Press the "OK" button to confirm. Restart Windows in Normal Mode. Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Device Manager" > "Mice and other pointing devices." Choose the "Driver" tab and press the "Update" button. Press the "OK" button to fix the touchpad software.

Windows XP Professional, can't log in, try to type


Which model of laptop ?

Nearly every device in your computer system can be turned off and on by accessing the Windows Device Manager with a few clicks of the mouse. It gives you plenty of flexibility and allows you to customize your computer on a whim. The Device Manager will allow you to enable your factory keyboard and mouse and disable your current ones, effectively resetting them to the default settings

Make sure that your default mouse and keyboard are plugged into your computer. Click on the Windows "Start" button in the lower right corner of your desktop. Type "Device Manager" in the "Start Search" box. Click "Device Manager" under "Programs." Click "Continue" if the Windows permission window pops up. Click the "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the default mouse and click "Enable." Switch to your default mouse then right-click your other mouse and click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the warning popup window. Unplug the other mouse. Press the "+" next to "Keyboards." Right-click your default keyboard and click "Properties." Click the "Driver" tab then click "Enable." Click "OK." Right-click your other keyboard and select "Properties." Click the driver tab then click "Disable." Click "Yes" in the permission window then click "OK." Your computer is reset to the default keyboard and mouse.

Software freezing and skipping


Click Start - Run, type in %temp% and then click OK.
Once that temp folder is open and you can view its contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside it.It's all junk and is a good place for "nasties" to hide.
  • Install and run antispyware software
  • Free up wasted space with Disk Cleanup tool
  • Defragment your hard disk drive
For an instant fix use a system utility tool like Reginout to fix windows corrupt registry and missing dll files.

My laptop Toshiba A200-1V0 is freezen everytime when connected to the charge. Could you please help me on this ?


If this core 2 duo bug then you need to disable one of two cores in device manager..You can access device manager through Computer Properties than find Processor, disable only one core...
Anyway, if you can't reach your system due to freeze, you can use safe mode...Press F8 key during POST and system will prompt you that you can enter Safe Mode...

With Vista OS , worked fine, upgraded to windows 7..realized cinedash/multimedia does not work, but ignored..the more irritant is - when A/C power is plugged in, the computer starts rebooting every 5-10...


Try this
Remove the battery, plug in the AC Adapter and reboot into safe mode.
  1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Security link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on Device Manager and then proceed to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Security window, click on the Device Manager link located under the System heading.
Click on processors
disable all of the processors and restart your computer.

Sounds like the power utility is messing with you...disabling those and rebooting SHOULD solve the problem.

Of course this is just a guess...if you could post an event log of the shutdown that would make things easier.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!
