Need firmware to run windows sideshow

I use an LG R200 laptop. It has an auxilery display that has windows sideshow on it so that I can access laptop information without having to turn on the laptop. Unfortunately, recently it stopped displaying windows sideshow but instead it started displaying some firmware settings. I tried going through the settings to see if I could get windows sideshow displaying again. However, I accidentally deleted the firmware completely and now all that displays is the basic bios for the system. Through the bios I can install a new firmware but I don't have a firmware to install.

Hi, I have changed my laptop's screen cause was broken. The new screen is LG. THe problem is that now, with the new screen I can't see almost anything on my laptop. It's like the brightness is near to...

I'm not sure how resetting the EEPROM to factory defaults will suddenly get the inverter to work. If it is the original inverter, it is incompatible with the tubes in the new display, or the EEPROM display parameters need to be changed to adjust its operation. A different inverter may likewise need a parameter change. Perhaps that can be done in the BIOS setup, but you may have to find the firmware version used with the LG display option and flash that in.

It still seems more likely to me that one of the cables to the inverter is not properly seated or you have a defective (broken?) fluorescent tube. The fact that you can't get any change from the brightness adjustment is a strong indication of this. Check this out before you take a chance on firmware hacks.

My display is damaged on my vaio laptop so I have to use an external monitor. How do I make the laptop go to the monitor BEFORE windows boots. My problem is I cannot make my computer boot up and I think I...


Outputting to an external display is only possible through Windows. As you stated External Display works with the computer, its sure that the issue is with the LCD. Performing a System Recovery is not going to help. The screen needs a replacement. To confirm this restart the VAIO and press and hold the F2 key and check if the computer boots to BIOS, if it boots to BIOS, then the screen is fine. Based on the information you have provided, I'm sure that the LCD will exhibit the same issue in BIOS and screen will stay blank.

As far as the recovery process is concerned, if you have not changed the preinstalled OS in the computer, you can still access the VAIO Recovery partition from Help and Support. You can also access the Recovery Center following the below link: C:\Progrm Files\Sony\Recovery Center.

To initiate a service process, you can visit the http// or can get in touch with your favorite technician.

Hope this helps.

My laptop turns on but displayed black background & white cursor

I would boot in safe mode and attempt to run a scan for viruses or malware. That is what I would think the problem was
You could also do a system restore to before this problem started in safe mode. If you dont know how to get to safe mode google it. something like "Safe mode Windows Vista"

My dvd inmy laptop won't read it is a LG GSA-T10N. The drivers are corrupted or missing. how do i fix the problem

First try deleting the device and resintalling with the drivers that came with the machine. If you do not have then get them from your manufactures website. If I have the laptop model I could help you with that link but as I do not you will have to get to this part solo.
If not luck then I sugesst trying this fix next.
If that doesn't do the trick then try updating the firware for the device but I suggest trying that last. Firmware updates on this stuff is not always the best advise. It is best to get this from the laptop manufacture's site or you can do a search for the LG GSA-T10N and get it from a website like this here:
I hope this advise works for you.

I have a LG R200.when i put the power on, the display still semi-dark, dosen´t open clearly.

This is a common laptop issue. The lcd has what is called an inverter that changes the power to hat is required to run the lcd. It is very easy to replace but you need to revove it first to find out the part number. There are several on ebay for about 35 plus shipping. A good computer tech will be able to take apart the lcd housing to find the part number and even order and replace it. Shouldn't cost more than about 150 if the inverter is a brand new part and less if it is used

Mine is an ongoing issue, for almost 6 weeks now. I cannot access my Pinterest account. I get no results when I sign on to Pinterest, or when I push the Pinterest button. The first sign of trouble was when I got a message that something had run out or stopped and at that point I was told to paste something to my browser. This was Greek to me and thus began my many desperate pleas for help. At 70 years old, I am unable to follow any instructions. The second thing I was told was to deactivate my account and then reinactivate it. I then read that to deactivate would lose all my boards and pins, so then I was and still am, afraid to do anything! I adore Pinterest. I am a shut in, physically challenged and Pinterest adds so much joy to my daily life. My last email was from a woman, at Corp., and she listed several suggestions...however, I did not understand them, plus, if I exited the email to do what she instructed, I had to hope I could still have the email to go back to, and I immediately did the unthinkable...I lost the email entirely. I am so fed up with myself at this point, I had a computer repair man come to the house to work on my iPad and my laptop, but he said he knew nothing about Pinterest and could not help me at all. I have contacted you for help so many times on this, it is embarrassing and I am sure I have made a nuisance of myself. The initial email, notifying me that something was wrong with my account, is when all the trouble began. I have enjoyed Pinterest for several years, and have no idea what the initial email was talking about. That is when I was told to deactivate and then deactivate my account, and also told to paste something to my browser. It sounds so simple, but I am at a total loss. Again, I am terrified of losing my boards and 57,000.00 pins. Can someone at Corp. try again to help me? Also, is there any chance that they could call me and instruct me over the phone? I am desperate to save my boards/pins.Could someone please try one more time to help me? Carol Thompson Hollyhockheaven 623 910 9386
