Re: Sony Vaio PCG-FX150
The noise you can here are probably the platlettes or parking head that are present inside the harddrive.
Dropping the notebook would more than likely of damaged the harddrive more than any other peice of hardware.

Oh yes, I have had this happen before and it sucks.
This problem is usually just due to having Num lock on. Try pressing the num lock button on your keyboard and see if this makes a difference. In the smaller notebooks and netbooks they combine the numbers and letters onto the same keys using num lock to distinguish the mode.
I think on your model the num lock button will be towards the top right of the keyboard. You may also have to press the FN (function) button at the same time, but I am not sure.
Also there should be a small led that illuminates or goes dark to inform you when num lock/scroll lock/caps lock are enabled/disabled.
if your caps light is on a light will/should show on your keyboard

On-screen real-time indicator showing the status of the Num, Caps and Scroll Lock buttons on the keyboard. NumCapsScroll Indicator monitors their status and indicates it in the System Tray with its icon, with a tool-tip when you mouse-over its System Tray icon, with a small On-screen Keyboard-like panel and a sound indicator. It's also an identical utility for laptops that are not supported with Num, Caps and Scroll Lock LEDs on their Keyboards.
What's new in this version: Version 7.0 is compatible with Windows 7.
It depends on the keyboard model. Some have a number lock indicator light. There is no standard for location, either. The most common place for Caps lock, number lock, etc. on a desktop keyboard is behind the number key pad. However, some keyboards put the caps lock indicator right in the Caps lock key. There's probably at least one model that does the same for number lock. Many laptop models have no indicator, or a tiny one set somewhere in back bezel.
Some operating systems and applications have an option for displaying the status in the menu bar. If you can't find the number lock status indicator, you may have to resort to observing the behavior of the system when you hit a key on the number pad. If number lock is off, the even numbers (not including 0) will be arrow keys and the odd numbers will be page navigation keys.
Disconnect all the devices from your computer.
Press and hold power button for 30 to 40 sec.
connect all the devices without USB drive.
once the system is up, connect to Internet.
click on start ->My Computer ( Right click)->Manage->Device Manager->Update USB Driver.
Try to power off unit and remove the battery. Then press and hold power button
for 30seconds.Put the battery back and turn it on. If it turns on turn it back
off again and remove the battery. Connect your VAIO using the AC adapter only.
If this will not resolve your issue you can check this with SONY or any
certified service center.
