Question about Sony VAIO GRZ630 Notebook

1 Answer

Vista, Vaio VGN-AR51E

My laptop will freeze if it is left idle for to long. Programs will stop responding and then everthing stops, sometimes u wont even be able to move the cursor on the screen. when the prgrams start crashing, i cant even shut the computor down, i have to press and hold the power button. it also happens when i try to run virus scans and disk defragmentor, or if i play long media files from the computor.

    i installed vista ultimate 32 bit. but i checked for compatibility before i bought it and vista upgrade advisor showed no issues.

    Two questions:



    1. Did you have some other kind of OS on this laptop before Vista or did it have Vista and you upgraded to Vista 32 bit?



    2. How much RAM is installed in your laptop?



    To check RAM LEFT CLICK on the WINDOWS ICON on the desktop. Then RIGHT
    CLICK on COMPUTER and LEFT CLICK on PROPERTIES. The amount of RAM
    should be listed on the main page of the properties.

    Okay that's good to know. Have you installed any new programs recently like just before this issue started happening?

  • Timothy Bright May 11, 2010

    Have you run WINDOWS UPDATES lately? This may be a Vista issue and not the computer. If so, sounds like it may be a virus. Try updates first though.

My laptop left mouse button has stopped working


Common hardware problem. The correct solution is a replacement tracker pad and mouse, however you may be able to get the problem fixed by cleaning under the pad. Either way it requires taking the laptop apart.

Vista vaio survey has stopped working


VAIO Update has been disabled. Start , all Programs, VAIO Update 3, VAIO Update Options , Reenable the checkboxes and you shouldn't get the message anymore. This program runs at startup to check for updates with SONY, pretty useless.

Left mouse button and mouse pad sometimes stops functioning on the sony vaio vgn-ar51e


It's most likely a loose cable inside the notebook then makes contact intermittently. Or, your touchpad is faulty.

It might be worth having the machine looked at by someone certified to take it apart.
