Use of Monitor Output Socket

I would like to use my Sony Vaio laptop for a powerpoint presentation on my college course.
I have tried to plug in the overhead projector cable to the monitor socket to the rear of my laptop, but do not know how to enable this output. For information a friend's Dell Laptop will drive the same projector by him typing the Fn and F8 keys.
Please can you advise if there is a similarly simple procedure for this Sony Vaio laptop?
Many thanks
Frank Bailey

My sony vaio was running fine, I was just watching a movie on it when it turned itself off. I turned it back on but it went off again after a couple seconds, and after that it wouldn't even start at all....


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then -
The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty.
Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

How do I add an external monitor to my laptop, Sony FE series


connect the monitor to the VGA output on the laptop - connector looks like this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector then connect vga cable to monitor - now on the laptop use FN key + F7 key together and the out put will be transferred to that output as follows each time you toggle the FN+F7 key <laptop screen><VGA output ONLY><laptop screen and VGA output> not in that order and may include other outputs - my sony also toggles the HDMI output if HDMI cable connected
  • Also have a look at the F keys and make sure that F7 has a screen on it - just incase your model uses a different F key

Power socket is loose


dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-vgnfw-series-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2647.html
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-07300012492a-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2782.html
hope this can help you

Power socket for sony vaio is broken how do I


On a Sony, many times the power socket is a separate piece that can be replaced. Unlike many laptop motherboards, these power sockets are a separate item the plug into the motherboard. \

Bad news is you have to dissassemble the computer to get at it.

Powerpoint 2007 get sound from one monitor to another


Some monitors have speakers built-in, some don't. The sound never travels through the 15pin d-type VGA connector. If the monitor has sound, there will be a small 1/8 inch stereo jack in the back or bottom of the monitor. Most all laptops have a headphone output jack (again 1/8 inch stereo) which is perfect for patching to external amplified speakers or to a monitor with speakers built-in. This patch cable can be purchased at Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc etc.

Connecting a sony Vaio vgn-fe570g laptop to a Samsung Monitor


There is an issue with the vga port on 2006 - 2007 sony vaio laptops. It doesn't push enough power to samsung lcds. There are all sorts of complicated solutions suggested by all sorts of people. Don't waste your time. Get yourself a connection cable with gold contacts and you'll be straight. It costs approx. $33.99. I got this one and it works fine (and I have a weak-*** TZ):
