It's true that with a laptop, replacing some parts means replacing the motherboard as they are integrated parts, this applies with the sound card. If your laptop is under warranty then you should be able to get it fixed, otherwise you need to weight the cost of replacing the motherboard verses buying a new computer. Seeing as how the motherboard in a laptop is pretty much half the computer, it may be cheaper to buy a new one.

    There are such things as external sound cards, do a search for external sound card or USB sound card and you should find some. The difference here is that you will plug your speakers or headphones into that instead of the laptop. Here is a link to get you started:

Vgn t350p no sound


Try the steps below, this should work:

  1. Restart the computer.
  2. Check the system volume to make sure the volume is not muted or too low.
  3. Ensure the volume control dial on the left side of the front panel is increased to an audible level.
  4. Plug in a set of headphones to see if there is sound through the headphones. NOTE: If there is sound through the headphones, the issue is with the speakers.
  5. Ensure the playback device is correctly selected .
  6. Select a sound scheme in Control Panel.
  7. Reinstall the sound drivers.
  8. Check for conflicts in Device Manager.
  9. Remove all added hardware to see if it is conflicting with the sound card.
  10. Reset the BIOS to the default values.
  11. Use the System Restore utility to restore the system back to a point when the sound last worked properly.

I have Sony VGN-FS630/W about 5 years, that machine was very helpfull. Never has a major problem. Few days ago I had use like normal day, shut off like always the same, and teh next day don't start at all....

OK... TRY to start your SONY with the batter removed... will it start? If it does, buy a new battery and DON'T run your Sony for very long without one!

Your Power Supply may have failed so suspect that first. They are about $11 or so including shipping. See the link below.

Now a new BATTERY is much more expensive starting around $27 and up ~ so I would try a new supply first! Also some shippers are getting stinky about battery shipments too so that may have added to costs?

Surprisingly, mother boards don't just up and fail... Usually some connections like USB or audio functions fail first... so try to think of a bad mother board last. On desktops if your "on board", "mother board provided" audio/Network/WiFi/USB fails... it's a snap to plug in a replacement card to get them working again!

NOT so easy on a laptop.

Hi, you mostly likely lose your driver for your microphone. Unfortunately, Sony doesn't seem to support windows 7 for your computer, only Vista, or at least the drivers for 7 is not on their site. What you could do is Google search you sound card, microphone, and mother board type and see if your can find a third party copies of working drivers for your computer. My Mind is telling me there are more things may not be working on your computer as before. Are they?

Or you may reply to this with the type of sound card and mother board and microphone hardware your computer has and I will try to find it for you.

Or better yet contact Sony, -- I am sure your paid lot of $$$$ for the computer.

I have a cracked screen. I need to buy a new one. Any ideas on where i can get one for under 200$.

here is a search engine 'google' search to click on and check.
Many suppliers actually have 'A stock' New/most expensive or 'B-Stock' slightly used/less expensive or even 'C-stock' far more economical that may have a few scratches on them.

Which ever one of them you use - try to negotiate with their price as they may even take your broken one back!

I need to replace the keyboard in my Sony VAIO VGN-T350P. Where can I get an OM keyboard, and instructions on how to replace it?

These folks sell a replacement keyboard for your model.

Either the accessory or user guide on Sony's site should provide you with instructions for replacing it.
