Touchpad problem on VAIO laptop

The touchpad on my VAIO VGN-N385 has become clunky and won't move unless I depress the lower left "hold" key for every move. It's almost unusable. Someone suggested that online manual will help but I can't find it for this model.

Have you tried a regular mouse another (USB) input? You may be able to carefully disassemble the pad and clean with a electronic cleaner fluid. Use a light touch with the membrane. If the mouse behaves the same, look at you system and uninstall / reinstall the driver. The oils on your fingers can gum up the surface and make it less sensitive to the electrostatic properties that make a touch pad operate.

Touch pad for sony vaio mp 5 player


Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.Get online and got towww.google.com In the google search box type: "Sony Support"(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Lookfor downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system whenrequested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

Touchpad freezes


Control panel - find mouse/touchpad icon and try a reset of the functions. If all else fails and you can back everything up, a clean re-install of Windows should solve it. If that doesn't work, it's a hardware problem - return to Sony or a qualified engineer

I have a sony VGN-FE890 and I took it out from my luggage this morning and the screen is messed up. I can still see stuffs but the brighness is so low. I tried to adjust the brightness, but it's not...


Many times this is an inverter issue or a wire that is pinched. Check to see if moving the screen forward or backword gives you better brightness. however, many times this is just a setting.

You can try using the FN key located on the keyboard lower left side. Hold that down and press the function Key (f1-f12) that shows a picture of a SUN and a Plus sign. Now this can also be on the Arrow keys (depends on the keyboard).

If that doesn't work you will have to take it in.

Sony vaio touch pad not working.


My Vaio touchpad started behaving strange. I could move the curser, but no response on left or right click or double tap. Also found that in any search field or user name fields, the computer would just type endless 9's. My wireless mouse could operate the left and right click buttons, but not move the curser. A suggestion to get the mousepad operating again was to touch any key on the keyboard. This allowed it to function again. Final solution was to remove the battery, then hold down the start key for about a minute, reinsert the battery and start it up. It seems to have resolved the problem. I have a 3 month only laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Hope this helps.
