    You are substantially incorrect Sameer. The PC should resume to normal (called waking from sleep) when you lift the lid. It will ask for the normal Windows Password, if you have set one, and then resume to normal. My PC was working like this, fine and stable until a few weeks back. Somehow this problem has occured, probably as a result of some malware or updated driver etc.

Sony Vaio won't wake


There are a lot of issues with drivers based on Windows 8 at the moment. I've also been playing a lot with it lately and have the same issue with my Dell laptop, Intel chipset. My only recommendation is to put Windows 7 back on and wait until late-October when all the manufacturers start releasing compatible drivers.

Vgn-fw330j/b wont stay in sleep mode. it awakens by itself.


I know when you have it in hibernation it will come out if simething startsto run in he background. This could be malicious software or just something you have running that activates and brings it out of hibernation. How many things load up when you first start up the computer, you should eliminate all the programs that start when you boot up, you only need to run programms when you want them, see if this solves your problem

XP Drivers for Sony Vaio VGN-fw230j/b


It's probably not supported Sony.

You can try and downgrade but you might lose some functionality. I downgraded my Vista Gateway laptop to XP but had to spend a lot of time tracking down drivers that would work correctly.

You won't be able to just pop in an XP cd and install. You'll have to jump through a few hoops.

Here's the biggest hoop and guide here:

http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html

Since you have a newer laptop your hard drive uses sata drivers which the XP cd doesn't have built-in.

Let me know if you get stuck or have anymore questions.

I have a new sony vaio VGN-FW230J that recently the dvd drive has stopped opening and when i found the button to manualy open several disks will not play at all. I am currently in Afghanistan so it is...


due to dusty environment as in the area u mentioned it happens the lens gets dusty and when it tries to read during that period it doesnt respond to the opening button so the only solution is

open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements

next time if u get into trouble try pressing the eject button for like 5-8 sec it will respond otherwise restart immidiately then it will respond to ur press when the sys is restarting take out the disk and try the cleaning process

pls do rate me if i fixed what u wanted
