Acer are having the same problem with some of their laptops not working properly when it's hot and humid.
I recommend that you send the laptop back and swap it for a different model as there seems to a fault with certain models.
If you have any data stored on the laptop back it all up before you send the unit back to Sony.
I know it's not the answer that you are looking for but you will be stuck with that computer having the same problem if you don't sent it back to Sony within a year of purchase.

Aspire 5475 freezes on startup

It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!

It seems there is no booting as the memory is not responding or the hard disc is not booting up. Please check on the back up CMOS button cell battery on the back side of the laptop. replace if the voltage is low.
Also remove and reset the memory, if not you need to take consensus to know if this can be the hard disc, memory or the motherboard.

My 19 " LG Monitor

If you have a problem getting into safe mode using windows Vista or 7, boot up your computer. As soon as it tries to start windows turn off the power. When you try to start it again it should come up with a menu asking if you want to use safe mode or boot normally. Select safe mode.

First is to try and boot into safe mode, Reboot and as the computer starts up, press F8 key like you are trying to get the computers attn. If you can get in to safe mode your cd/dvd should work. If it will not boot into safe mode, it might be best to take the computer to a tech to fix.

I have a new two stage 5 ton heil installed in my

A 5 ton unit on a 2300sf house seems too big.
The only way to tell for sure is to have a professional come out and do a heat load calculation. I understand this is an old house with limited insulation, but many other factors are involved in determine the unit capacity needed including windows, overhangs, infiltration, trees/bushes, house position, etc.

An oversize A/C unit will cause the exact problem you are having. It cools so fast that it doesn't have time to remove the humidity. Please check this and if this is the problem then a band-aid solution is to add the dehumidifier. The correct solution is to install the correct A/C unit (I know, too much $$).

Also, you need to make sure the condenser unit (outdoor) and the evaporator unit (indoor) are correctly matched. Ask your A/C tech to check.

Also, check that the fan is operating at the correct airflow. Too much airflow and you'll have high humidity in the house. Again, ask your A/C tech.

Finally, check that the ductwork is properly sized. Too small or too large will cause you problems.

If nothing comes up, also check for infiltration. This is outside air getting into the house. Check all the obvious places such as around doors, windows, cracks in the wall/ceilings, etc. But also check that air is not getting sucked into the return air duct due to leaks or improper installation. This is all too common. Everything needs to be sealed and tight on the return air path. Remember, this duct is "sucking" air and any leak will **** in hot, humidity air into your A/C unit and then into your house.

I hope this leads you to the problem. Good Luck!

My slk 2000 roof has just stopped working. It wont go down at al

Sounds like maybe some pin switches for interlocks have gone bad. Open your trunk and look for the rubber booted switches and try holding them or shorting them, if you make the top move it shows you which ones are bad.

Put your Windows disc in the disc drive.
Tap F12 when the computer is starting up.
Select load from disc.
Install Windows.
It seems to be the only solution to your problem.
Hopefully, you made a partition and saved your files onto there, or onto an external hard drive to prevent data loss.

I dont know if my new humidifier is working properly

Hello Mary, Where are you located at? if its cold outside? Then whats going on is that even though the outside humidity is say 80 percent humidity on the inside of oyur house even though oyu have the dehumidifier set at say 50 percent by the time the air is heated up there is not that much humidity in it because then the air heats up by the furnance it takes and dries the air out in the process. I know it sounds confusing but if you have ever had a humidifier in you house and it get real cold outside if oyu don't turn the humiditfier down to a lower setting then waht happens is that your windows will start to sweat and run water down to the sill because its condensing on the cold surface of the window. Hope that this helps you.
