Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W20 PC Desktop

Scrolling Problems! Someone please help!

I have had the Sony Vaio PCV-W20 for going on 5 years now and something has always gone wrong with this computer. If I download yahoo messenger then the digital clock doesnt display when I put the keyboard up, so I had to reboot my computer to how it was when the manufacturers sold it and have not downloaded the yahoo messenger. Now I have a new problem where if I used the scroll on the mouse sometimes while im on the internet it does something so that I cant scroll down on the pages. If I do, it just twitches and the page refuses to go down. If I grab the side bar to drag the page down, the page wont budge and or what little it does move and then it shoots right back to the top of the page. I have had a hard time searching for the problems because I cant even scroll down to read the search results. If someone knows how to fix this please help! Its doesnt seem to be a problem with the mouse and Ive searched my computer for viruses and its not that. Systems Mechanic doesnt pick up on any problems either. Im clueless and annoyed!

My pcv-w20 has been sitting over a year, the lcd monitor show's the desktop and operates normal except that theres no light to the screen (had to use a flashlight to see it) just went dark one day! ...


There is a $20 part called the "inverter" that has failed.
Add $50 to $75 for a qualified video/TV technician to disassemble the LCD, replace the part, reassemble, and test it.

Do I need a special Hard Drive fro my /sony PCV-W20??


Your system uses an IDE Hard drive interface, so make sure the hard drive you get has an IDE interface. I believe there is no limit to the capacity size. I would also recommend going to Sony support and search for a BIOS update. This will make sure that any limits on drive capacity are resolved.
