Question about Sony VAIO VGC-LV180J 24-Inch All-in-One PC

1 Answer

Wireless mouse locks up

The wireless mouse on my Sony VAIO VGC-LV180J keeps locking up - pointer won't move, causes me to restart frequently because of no other option. I've changed batteries. Even put in Lithium long-life batteries - to no avail. The mouse is easily within range of connection switch requirements, the same as the wireless keyboard. Can't use built-in laptop mouse instead - nothing works but restarting. No help from the Sony help website - tried everything they've suggested.

I would suggest investing in a USB mouse. They never have this problem and are very cheap to buy. I have found that wireless mice are prone to problems. I would say there is a problem in the connection between your mouse and the laptop but this sort of problem is quite hard to find. As I said, you are better off with USB mouse.

Hi, With what Sony Vaio computer does the SONY VAIO MODEL VGP-WKB1/G WIRELESS KEYBOARD belong to? Will it work with the Sony Vaio VGC-V517G all-in-one model computer? Thank you. Angelo

I went to Sony and typed in your particular model and added mouse at the end and got some results.There are some refurbished ones but I would never recommend those.The one i do see is $30,probably plus shipping too.Do notebook mouses have a smaller plug attachment or something?You said you searched online.I would try office depot or staples if you already haven't and there is one near you.You can call and ask rather than drive there.Also,optical mouse is the best.So much better than the rubber roller,well worth it's weight in gold.Anyhow here is the link.Good luck!

Sony VAIO internal wireless driver causes computer to lock up


There is a possibility you have a faulty wireless card. I would go with a external PCMCIA wireless card. Don't forget to disable the internal wireless card in the BIOS.
