My Vaio VGN T140P laptop became problematic after one day I plug a mouse in through the USB port when the computer was recovering from hibernation. The symptom is that it repeatedly restarted itself after a while, with a blue screen warning message. I guess the hard disk is OK, but the static electronic shock carried by the mouse may damage the motherboard.
I can post one of the warning messages below (each time the message is somewhat different):
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your
computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.
to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If
this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable
or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS
memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe
Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8
to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode

MOST LAPTOPS HAVE A ON AND OFF SWITCH FOR THE TOUCH MOUSE. ITS USUALLY RIGHT ABOVE IT OR ON THE SIDES OF YOUR COMPUTER. IF IT TURNS OUT TO BE SOMETHING REALLY WRONG JUST BY A SIDE MOUSE WITH A USB PORT INSTEAD OF PAYING HUNDREDS TO SOME COMPUTER REPAIR PLACE. MOST MOUSES ARE ONLY LIKE 5 TO 10 DOLLARS JUST FOR SOME CHEAP BRAND.
Make sure you have the mouse plugged in tight in the back of the computer before you start the computer.
There are two types of mouse interfaces: the PS2 Serial Style (round) and the USB Style (flat square).
If you have the PS2 round type it must plug into the Green Port on the back of the computer. The purple port is for the Keyboard. Also, the PS2 type is not Plug and Play. You cannot unplug it and plug it back in while the computer is running if you do the computer must be rebooted.
The USB type mouse is plug and play. You can take it out and put it back in without having to reboot the computer.
If you have a usb type mouse maybe the usb port that you have it plugged into is not working. Try plugging it into another usb port.
First - try to re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer to ensure the hard drive is connected properly..
If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty.
The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.
Your touch pad software may not be installed. Goto Sony's device driver support page and download the mouse drivers for your model. Sony has good software support. You'll find the touchpad program easy. Reload and see where that puts you.
We are talking about a standard keyboard and a standard computer??? Is it USB or something else?
Normally, I would expect to simply plug the keyboard into the appropriate port. You might have special software for special features on your keyboard. But even without the software, the standard keys should operate with nothing more than a plug in. The plug may be color coded to match the port.
Do you need more help ... Id like to help you. I need additional information to go forward.
try plugging the wireless mouse receiver into a different usb port reboot your machine is there a key on the keyboard with a little wireless symbol? if so it is probably in blue and there is fn key that you need to hold down while you press the wireless key to turn on the wireless
uninstall driver then turn off the PC then unplug the power cord from power socket, short its legs then leave it unconnected for 5min, then reconnect it to power socket and turn on PC and install driver it should work :)
eBay is the best place for this type of thing. It's way cheaper than any laptop depot I've come across.
Here's one for your keyboard:
As far as the screen is concerned; the way to get the best deal is to search by model number of the screen and not just laptop. The same screen can be used in several different laptops. Take your screen out and look on the back of it. There will be a model number there. Enter that model number into ebay's search, making sure you check product description to be included in the search query. Any screen matching that model number will fit your laptop just perfectly and it will save you a bundle.
