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:

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

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.

Sony vaio lap top sound driver


You can get the driver for you sony vaio laptop by visiting . Enter your computer's model number and all available drivers will be shown there.

If you want to automate the updating of your computer's driver, then I suggest that you install RadarSync. It's a technician's software. It automates the driver updates and you don't have to do anything with it. It works great with windows XP, vista, windows 8 and windows 7.

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.

Communications between SANY VAIO and SANYO PLC-XU55 projector


There should be a button at the top of the keyboard on the laptop that controls the display functionality (it is probably located in the row of keys starting with "f" and is highlighted such that is accessed by depressing a key labeled "Fn"). Pressing that key should toggle between the displays and should activate the projector as the primary display for the laptop.

Good luck!

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.
