Question about Sony VAIO VGN-CR420E/T Laptop

2 Answers

I have loaded Win XP in my Sony VGN-CR420E and i am having problems with my keyboard. The cursor keeps flying away to different locations, the typing gets mixed up with other lines typed before. If i type very slowly then it does not create too may problems. Can you help me solve this problem.

    I dont think there is any problem with the keyboard or the keyboard/mouse controller on the mother board. As the same keyboard works fine with Vista. Only with XP it has this problem. Also i have noticed that the @ Key(shift+2) is swapped with "Key (shift+,).Can you solve these problems.

It is likely that the keyboard at the very least is defective and causing you an issue. Keyboards are very cheap to replace and a new one can be found on ebay or through a local sony store or good computer store. Not too difficult to remove and replace. If the replacement does the same thing then the keyboard/mouse controller on the motherboard is defective and the motherboard will need to be repaired or replaced

I changed window vesta to 7 now my vgncr42 laptop's webcam and bluetooth dose not work how to download drivers for it


I'm assuming you changed to Win 7 Home Basic or Premium 32bit System.

First we have to figure out which VGN-CR420 model you have, to do this look on the bottom of your VAIO for the Model/Serial Number tag. On it you should see something like this:

1. VGN-CR420E
2. VGN-CR420E/L
3. VGN-CR420E/N
4. VGN-CR420E/P
5. VGN-CR420E/R
6. VGN-CR420E/W

Now that we have the model #, we can get your drivers.

First we will get your Webcam drivers:

Now were at Sony eSupport, go to "Software Drivers" (leftside middle of page) click on it. > Option 1. > Choose Country if not USA > Type in Model: VGN-CR420E (use your on model) then click "Continue" > Select Your Operating System > Now we are on your VAIO's page. Look for Camera then click it, the driver file is the "WebCam Companion software" download to you desktop. (easier to find) Open install, Done!

There is other good stuff here so bookmark this page!!!

Now for your Bluetooth driver:

Read all instructions then click "Download Now" save to desktop. Open > install > done!

You may be inadvertently touching the touch pad with the side of your hand or fingers as you type OR the touch pad itself is bad and needs replacement.
