Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio VGN-AR320E Notebook

2 Answers

Vista Issue Have a Sony Vaio laptop running Vista (build 6000). It is a 1.67G Intel 2 Duo, 64k primary cache, 2048k secondary cache with about 95G free hard drive space. Have purchased System Suite 8 Professional for all the malware, spyware, firewall, etc plus performed all chkdisk, defrag, etc. Running applications will freeze up for 30 sec. to a few minutes and than it is like the hard kicks back on everything goes back to normal. It has been doing this for a few months and sometimes it is worse than others. Except the last (4) or (5) days it has done it all the time. Afraid it is something to do with Vista. Any help would be appreciated.I just moved so I do not have my Vista disk and othe software disks. Vista was installed when I bought it so not even sure if I have it. Thanks.

While this is a common symptom, its causes are many...
To begin with, make sure you are current on all updates from Windows update, and check to see if there are optional hardware updates available for your system.
Have you gone to the event viewer to see if there are error events reported with respect to the running processes? Look to see if you have repeated warnings or errors with the same code, at times when you experience the freezing.
It also could be symptomatic of a hardware failure... of some kind. See this article for comparison.
I would begin to troubleshoot the issue by attempting to work through Microsoft's optimize vista tutorial available here, and see if you can sort it out on your own. If you take those steps and still have difficulty, please post back with the results.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Which is better laptop deal?


Hi !!

Ofcourse 2.4 ghz is better than 2.1 ghz but its not a very big difference if price difference is more than 100$ than go for first one else second one is good and the most important thing i want to mention is that it all depends upon your needs you havent mention for what purpose you are going to purchase. But both are enough for gaming, daily use and for techie as well.

Hope that helps
Thanks

Windows XP

You can run the Vista utility to check if you can run vista on that machine, but I don't think you'll be able to.

XP is your way to go!
