Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop WILL NOT BOOT

We bought this laptop on an online auction a few months back. This week, we have had trouble connecting to our own wireless network (but could connect to the neighbors??) It hasn't been able to operate without being connected to an outlet for about a month. We have it plugged in (and have tried other outlets) however, when you push the power button, NOTHING happens. No fan, lights, anything. Can anyone offer a solution?

Hi,

You seem to have two (2) problems:
1. wireless connection;
2. powering up.

On powering up, pls try:
a. charge the batteries at least overnight;
b. run the laptop with the AC adapter only and the battery removed;
c. do "b" but delay powering on the laptop for a couple of minutes.

On the wireless, pls try:
i. determine if a WEP or WPA security key is being used;
ii. check your router configurations;
iii. do a reset of your router (this would of course would set the router to default/factory values. This would be a last recourse since it is possible you will loose all Internet connectivity. Better to save your router configurations or copy them down somewhere.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

- It seemed that there is no wireless network driver that is installed on the computer

- I also noticed that you can connect to the internet using a wired connection

- you can download the wireless driver using the computer manufacturer's support website (e.g support.hp.com if it is a hp laptop , support.dell.com if it is a dell laptop)

- if laptop is customer built you can go to start -> run -> msinfo32

- Under system summary-> components -> network you can find an idea what kind of wireless network driver you have

- and you can google and download the wireless network driver

Wireless connection


I had sortof the same problem with my hpdv8000 pavilion laptop..I ended up calling the phone company that I have my DSL with and trouble shooting with them the connection. I had to get rid of one connection and start a whole new one. Until it recognized the new connection. If you call HP they will charge you $9.95 to trouble shoot your computer. Both together were really helpful in getting my computer back up and running. I also had to add the drivers back in. The disc was bought from HP My computer crashes regularly..I believe that I got a lemon....Hope this helps..The info is online under HP.com

Try letting windows manage your laptop wireless connection.  If you are using a third party sw to connect to the internet remove it and ask windows to manage your wireless connection.  Also verify that the router power cable is connected directly to the outlet and not an outlet splitter or surge protector.  Make sure your built in wireless is working and connected properly and test it than.
