Question about Sony VAIO T140P/L (VGNT140P) PC Notebook

1 Answer

Vaio VGN T140P repeatedly reboots

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.

Any inputs?

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

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.

Check 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

    No. Since the problem occurred, it won't be back normal no matter what I do.

Start in safe and take out the mouse. When you take out the mouse will it start normal? It may of conflicted with the touchpad.

Touchpad not workinh


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.

Cursor freezing


For a standard trackball mouse, unplug the mouse, turn it over and then twist the retaining ring counter-clockwise to remove it.

Remove the trackball inside the mouse.


Clean the trackball with warm water and dry carefully. Clean the rollers inside the mouse with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Replace the trackball, then secure it with the retaining ring.


Clean the outside of the mouse with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball.


For an optical or wireless mouse, clean the bottom of the mouse and the surface it sits on with a damp cloth.

Solve Hardware Problems


Make sure the mouse is connected properly.

The connector will either be USB or PS/2. A PS/2 connector is color-coded green and can only be inserted in one direction.


Check for any bent or broken pins or damage, then carefully plug it in, making sure the connection is secure. Reboot the computer.


Connect the mouse to another computer, then reboot the PC.

If the mouse works after testing it on another computer, the problem is most likely with your PC or operating system.


Also, try a different mouse on your computer.

If there is no PC freeze, your mouse is probably malfunctioning.


Switch to a different USB port. Sometimes mouse freeze will occur if the mouse is connected to a USB hub.


Connect the mouse directly to one of the USB ports on your PC.

Try different ports until you find one that works.


Replace the batteries.

If you have a wireless mouse, replace the batteries with fresh ones.


Also, try using a different kind of mouse pad.

Sometimes surface imperfections can interfere with the operation of a wireless or optical mouse.


Install more RAM or memory.

If your PC doesn't have enough memory, PC mouse freeze may occur when you are running resource intensive programs.


Installing more RAM will help your PC run more efficiently.

Solve Software Problems


Check for device conflicts. When you install another device on your computer, it can sometimes conflict with a PC mouse.

Remove any new hardware and drivers you may have installed, then reboot the computer.


Reinstall PC mouse drivers. In Windows, open "Control Panel" then "System."


Select the "Device Manager" tab, then scroll to and select your mouse.

Uninstall any drivers that are listed.


Unplug the mouse and reboot the PC.

Plug the mouse back in, reboot the system, then allow Windows to reinstall the drivers if prompted.


Remove viruses.


PC mouse freeze and other serious problems can be caused by viruses lurking on your system.Set the program to run a complete scan every 24 hours.

Also make sure the virus definitions are updated regularly.


Turn off video acceleration. Sometimes video acceleration can cause PC mouse freeze.

Go to "Control Panel," then click "Display," and then "Change Display Settings."


Click the "Advanced Settings" button, then the "performance" tab. Set the acceleration slider to "None," then reboot.


Repeat the process moving the slider up one notch until you have the maximum amount of acceleration with no mouse freeze


hope this helps

Hi.. .... my vaio vgn-n130g cannot find hard drive


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.

Spyder mouse won't work


I had a similar problem. I corrected by performing a manual connect as listed in the manual that came with the mouse.
Manual reconnect:
1. Plug in the receiver.
2. Turn on the mouse.
3. Press the button on the receiver.
4. Press the connect button on the mouse once within five seconds of pressing the button on the receiver.

This worked for me, and the mouse has worked fine since.

If this doesn't work. The manual suggested taking the batteries out of the mouse for 20 seconds and unplugging the receiver, then repeat the steps above.
If that doesn't work. reboot the computer and repeat the steps above.

Hope this helps.

Looking for screen and keyboard


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: http://cgi.ebay.com/Sony-Vaio-Laptop-Keyboard-VGN-T140P-HMB991-D01-NR_W0QQitemZ320137022753QQihZ011QQcategoryZ140084QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem 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.
