Question about Sony VAIO VGN-NR120E/S Notebook

1 Answer

Sony Vaio VGN-NR120E cracked lcd screen.

Trying to verify the laptop is still functional, but I think I need to configure the sony to use an external monitor.  How do I do this when I can't see anything on the lcd?

    Tried that first thing.  Trying to connect a HP LCD external monitor, but when I press and hold FN and press F7, nothing happens.  I can see the cursor in one corner of the sony lcd screen and it does move with the mouse, but I can't understand why I can't get the external monitor to work.  The user manual says I have to right click on the desktop and select 'personalize' to toggle the external display on.

You won't be able to see video if your LCD screen is cracked.

Connect a monitor to the VGA port , the hold the Fn key and hit F7.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Sony vgn nr120e screen broke and i want to use external but need to know when to hit the hotkeys


Connecting an External Monitor or Data Projector
You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key a few times. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

Sony vaio vgn-NR120E has no mic specially when u r on skype i can hear the caller but my voice is not heard by him...tell me the solutionWhat's your problem?


You're on a laptop and it's talking about a sound card?

If you can hear audio or the voice from the caller then you don't need a sound card.

Yes you can purchase an external mic and it just plugs into the mic port on your system. I think that might be why the caller can't hear you. All computers do not come with a built in microphone. And if you are skyping and using a web cam, all web cams don't have a built in microphone.

I want to connect my Sony Vaio VGN-NR120E to my TV Samsung. But I have no idea how to do that. Could you give me advice ...


Hi,
Your Sony vaio does not have any TV-out port to output the display on any analog TV. You can use your VGA (by using VGA cable) port to output your laptop on LCD / Plasma / LED TV (with a VGA port also)). If you still want to project to analog TV via the VGA port, you need to find a VGA to RGB adaptor. But bare in mind, it's hard to find one.
VGA port is like the port on computer monitor. RBG consist of three colored port.
Good luck ;)

Sony vgn-nr120e stops working


Hi,

Uninstall unnecessary softwares from add/remove programs. Did you noticed that cpu fan is working? If not then clean the cpu exhaust system with blower and also check the cpu fan function in BIOS. When using laptop always use flat surface to place it, mattress or sofa create problem with cooling and exhaust system of the cpu fan.
Hope this will help you.

Hasan
