Re: Sony Laptop

Having it closed shouldn't have caused overheating. Perhaps there is a problem with windows. Try booting into last known good configuratiot or safemode, you can do this by pressing F8 before the system tries to load windows. If this doesn't work it may be a ram issue, perhaps it is need of replacing/upgrade or perhaps became dislodged.

Your Sony Vaio laptop comes with a restore section pre-installed that allows you to revert the operating system's settings to an earlier date.

The restore feature is useful if your Sony Vaio has been infected with a virus or some of your hardware is no longer working properly.

If you don't want to search through all of your various settings and registry values to locate the source of the problem, an easier solution is to simply load a restore point.

Close any programs that are currently running.
Open the "Start" menu and click "All Programs."

Select "VAIO Recovery Wizard." Click "Next."
Navigate to "Media and Recovery Options" and click "Proceed with System Recovery."

Select "Next."
Click "Recovery Options," and then choose "Custom Recovery."

Click "Next," and then select "Windows System Restore."
Click "Next" and then "OK."

Click the left and right arrow buttons above the calendar to navigate to a restore point you want to load.
Click the specific restore date you want to use for your Sony Vaio laptop.

Click "Next," and then click "Confirm Restore Point Selection."

Follow these steps hopefully it will help you
- Minimize the use of background tasks such as defragmentation and virus scans
- Always place your laptop on a hard flat surface.
- Never leave operating laptop with closed lid. This always generates heat inside laptop
- Use a cooling fan near the heating area or use laptop at reasonable room temperature
After that get the Intel software partner Reginout to fix all the registry issues and hidden files that load on your system.
Best of luck

Some of the letters in the keyboard of my daughter's sony vaio Y series laptop won't function. what should i do?

My guess is that either food or liquid has gotten into the keys causing them not to work. You can try the following:
1) Power the laptop off. Now, cradle the laptop with the screen open in one hand. Carefully flip it over. Now, with the palm of the other hand, lightly bang on the keyboard. This MAY cause any food thats lodged under a key or two to loosen and fall out. Don't get carried away with the banging. Just a couple of good taps all over the keyboard should work, if its going to. When completed, roll the laptop over and power it back up. See if your problem is fixed. If not solved,
2) Ok, you've got a more serious problem. This will likely require the replacement of the keyboard. If the laptop is older and you don't want the trouble or cost of replacing the laptop, you can usually just purchase a USB keyboard. Plug it into a USB port on the laptop and your problem should be solved.
3) If however the laptop is fairly new, and you want to replace the keyboard, you can either do it yourself (really NOT a huge project) or bring it in and have someone do it for you. If you opt to try to do it yourself, here is a link to a site with step by step instructions to remove the keyboard:
Its not exactly your model, but should be pretty close. Once you get it off, you can then Google 'laptop keyboards' and you'll find dozens of places that will ship you a replacement keyboard in a couple of days. Then just reverse the process to remove it and she should be all set.
No more eating or drinking over the laptop! :-)
Hope this helps!

My daughter's sony PCG-FR130 laptop has a problem whereby it simply turns itself off. After having been off for a few days, it will run ok for up to 15 minutes but then if you start it back up it may only...

It is possible that your daughters laptop has a clogged air intake port or dust build-up on the heat sink which cools the processor. With the laptop unplugged and with the battery out, take a soft Bristol brush to the vent ports on the laptop then take your vacuum with the brush attachment and place over the vent while moving slightly. If this does not help then you will need to have your laptop professionally cleaned by a local dealer.

Sony Vaio VGNNR330E laptop wont start up right even after recover

I think you may have bad sectors on the hard drive which is why it loads the software but then when it comes time for the system to read it, it just hangs cause it can't read into the sectors on the hard drive.

Best way to determine this, try another known good working hard drive and if it goes thru all the way and loads then you know the original hard drive is bad.

Starting the laptop

Unplug all external devices. Remove the battery and ac adapter. Then try again with just the ac adapter and no battery. If it works, turn it off and put the battery back in. Everything should be fine.

What your daughter did is absolutely harmless, unless your laptop is set-up not to go to standby mode then eventually hibernate when the lid is closed. In that case if it was put into a laptop bag while running it may have overheated. If that's the case it may need a motherboard or CPU, have it checked out.
