Re: broken key

You don't have to replace the whole keyboard if some of your keys fell off. There is a key replacement company I ordered my laptop keys from. They have video tutorials on how to fix your keys. And its very simple. Have a look:

Re: broken key

Your best solution would be to buy a new keyboard for the laptop. Look on eBay for a replacement.

Sony vaio lap top vgn-fe660g comes with built in camera?

It does come with a webcam built-in to it, but I don't suggest buying this laptop since it's pretty old and wont run modern games

Boot from USB


When the computer first starts there will be a black screen, somewhere on this screen will be some commands (e.g. - F1, ESC, DEL) to enter setup or BIOS. Navigate through the BOIS with the ESC key and the Arrow keys to find Boot devices, there should be a USB option in there (F10) Save changes and exit.

I hope this helps.

My sony vaio won't connect to the internet

We would need more information. You might be connecting via wireless and there is a function key or wireless turn on switch on your lap top. I would have you refer to your service manual as you left no model information.

The Fn botton on my vio lap top won't work

The Fn button is like a 'shift' key. Just as you would press <Shift> and a letter to get a capitalized letter, you press <Fn> and a function key at the same time ( <Fn><F1> or <Fn><F2> and so on) to use the secondary function for that key. For example, on one of my laptops, the <F2> key has an icon for 'wireless' (looks like an antenna). If I simply press <F2>, I will activate the function for <F2>, but if I press <Fn> and <F2> at the same time, I will turn on my wiress adapter.

<Fn> all by itself does nothing.

Hope this helps.

Lap top sony VGN-FS742/W

Sorry the laptops fried, the best thing you can do now is remove the hard drive and get your data from it if it still works.
buy a new laptop and sell yours for spares on ebay

Kind regards
