Question about Sony Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Ok.. I am no tech expert so I may need some help & expert advice on this one. I bought (rather received a gift) around 2 months back - a Sony VAIO E series VPCEA13EN. All was fine until two days back when things started to get stuck and the screen was freezing. So twice [yes, I am guilty about that :(] I ended up just pressing the power on/off button to see if things would work that way. And now, when I try to boot my laptop, it says there was recent change in the software or hardware and gives me JUST two options - Launch Start up Repair or Start Windows Normally. If I select the Startup Repair option, it just goes and sits on a sky blue screen with nothing else happening.. no notification of anything happening whatsoever. And if I select the Start Windows Normally, it just sits on the little windows logo for two minutes and restarts and comes back to the menu showing the above two options. I tried googling and came across a few posts that suggested selecting Safe Mode, but am not getting that option.. should there be something else I can try? PLEASE HELP!!!! I already have other things on my mind to be depressed about!

To get safe mode and depending on the machine you need to press and hold f6 or f8 just after the intial boot screen shows. This will allow you to get to safe mode selection on your pc.

How long to wait for an answer to my question


Very fast Megan :>)

A lot depends on whether the question is well written, proof read, is in intelligible English, and if there is an expert around who knows the answer and is around. Your question only lacks the country you live in, as taxation rules differ.

You could change my Google link to read

gifts affecting pension <country>

and that will narrow it down a bit, all taxation laws are available online and there are tax accountants who would love to help you. If you use one, they ought to give you free advice.

My sony STR-DE345 amp says "protect" and there is


The manual says it thinks there is a short circuit on the amplifier output side. If it still says Protect after disconnncting all the speakers wires there is an internal problem. Take it to a hands-on tech.

If the problem disappears, you had a short. Attach speakers one at a time to isolate the cause.

I just bought a vsx-1019ah receiver. I connected


Check if your KuroLink is on or off. There are a lot of problems that users have been having with the KuroLink on. Since you have a Pioneer display, KuroLink might help in switching both the receiver and the display on and off together, but my advice to you would be play around with the settings (in your case, especially KuroLink). Also remember, the KuroLink is on by default i.e. if you've never changed this setting, it probably is on.
Hope this solution works, else check out the Official Thread on Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K on avsforum. There are a lot of helpful people out there.

New Dremel 300 stopped working. What's wrong?


Something amazing just happened! On my monitor screen, window popped up that said, "ASK A QUESTION - LET OUR EXPERTS SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM FOR FREE".

I couldn't resist getting expert advice for free, so I clicked on the window. I was immediately taken to a magical world where I can pay for expert advice. I opted not to pay for expert advice. The next day, I was asked if the help I received was helpful. So here I am posting this response. I haven't received any expert advice yet, but when I do....!

6 month old garage door will work.


On the back of the opener near where all those white wires go you will find 2 controls. One is labeled "up force." Increase this about 1/4 turn.

Want to connect the cd player to a turntable in place of a receiver


Right, so you have a turntable, which I assume was working fine before? It must have been connected to an amplifier or receiver. Keep this connection between your record deck & amp/receiver AS IT IS.

You want to make CDs from your vinyl? The best way to do this is to use the amp/receiver's tape/md/record loop. This "loop" sends the signal you are listening to from the amp to your CD recorder, and also allows you to switch to "tape" to monitor your recording during, or after recording, without deselecting your turntable (which would leave gaps in your recording). I will try to give you some useful information, but it all depends on your equipment & sockets, so if you're still lost after trying this, please let me know the make & model of your amp/receiver so I can check its functionality & give you some more helpful advice.

Your CD recorder has 2 pairs of phono (riaa) sockets, one to receive sound (input) and one to send sound (output) to & from your amp/receiver. You should connect the CD recorder's input (or record in) to the tape out (or record out) on the amp/receiver. And you should connect the CD recorder's output to the amp/receiver's tape in. Set your amp/receiver to phono (or however you usually have it set to listen to your turntable, and you should be set to record. When starting recording, I recommend that you use a CD-RW (a re-writable disc) so you can have a play around & get a good recording level that doesn't distort without wasting any discs.

Some amps/receivers don't have tape/md/record loops, in this case things can be a little more complicated & you might need to add a junction/switching box in order for it to work. I can help you with this too.

So best of luck & let me know how you get on.

Something that seems to come up a lot here & worth pointing out is that your dedicated AUDIO CD recorder will not accept data discs, only audio ones. That will be ones that say 80mins, rather than 700MB. These are a little more expensive but your recordings ought to be more reliable.
