Question about Computers & Internet
Clear the saved passwords
Sony VAIO Care, an application pre-installed on most Sony laptops, is designed to automatically check for computer updates and to assist you with troubleshooting and maintenance. The application is configured to start as soon as the computer powers on. Although Sony VAIO Care is helpful, it is not necessary for it to launch automatically, as having too many programs launch at startup can cause your computer to run slowly. You can disable VAIO Care so it does not run at startup.
Click on "Start," then click "All Programs." Click on the "Accessories" folder. Click on the "System Tools" folder and click "Task Scheduler." Type your Administrator password, if asked for one, and click "Continue." The Task Scheduler window appears. Click on "Task Scheduler Library" in the left pane. Click on "VAIO Care." Click "Disable" under the "Actions" heading on the right side of the window. Close the window. When you next start the computer, VAIO Care will not automatically run
Hope this helps.

The solution is as follows, which worked for me:
- Install Windows 7
- let it update all the drivers that it needs to
- Install additional Sony drivers that you need (XP drivers work just fine, but make sure to install them in Administrator mode, so, Run as Administrator), such as camera, fingerprint scanner, etc
- Install the Notebook Control Device Driver (without this the other software does nothing)
- Sony Utilities DLL
- Sony Shared Library
* restart computer *
- Sony Video Shared Library
- SUS (Setting Utility Series)
* restart computer *
- VES (VAIO Event Service)
After this one the Fn keys will start to work. The S1 and S2 keys don't work due to something to do with UAC (but I don't need them anyway)
- VAIO Control Centre (will allow you to change what the S1 and S2 keys do, even though you can't use them :) )
That's it and it worked for me.

SOURCE: Sony Vaio fan making noise
Not sure of a user cause for the fan to run full speed, unless you are using the laptop in a high heat environment, or setting it on a bed or other area where it is not getting adequet cooling air. If it does it right away, when you turn it on , cold, then there might be a laptop hardware problem. If you leave your laptop on all the time, then you might be inducing the problem. I had a HP high performance laptop, that the fans would not turn on at all till it ran an hour or so, then they would stay on loud for 10 or 15 minutes, then shut off, then cycle.

There are 2 ways you can reset your bios.
1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system. Your reset is now complete
2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete
This is a great troubleshooting step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
