I've had a laptop for a year now. It's a Sony Vaio VGN-C2S runnin on Vista. It all seemed fine till one day the mouse and keyboard stopped working on every startup, i tried unpluggin the battery to restart it and tried again but the same problem. I have tried taking the battery out and leaving the main power suplly in, yet still the same problem happens. Is there anything wrong that you can point me to, all help is appreciated.

Hi DJ try to check your cables and connections, if it still the same, try change your keyboard and mouse,borrow from others to double check other device that works with other's PC and try your keyboard and mouse too on other PC. have you identify the problems?

Try also to go CMOS settings by pressing DEL or F2 when restarting your PC , go to device options and Enable options that supports USB or PS2, save it and restart your PC...

Could be dirty contacts. Sounds like the laptop needs to be disassembled and hit with compressed air. If you try to do this yourself look up a service manual for the brand and model # of your laptop as once you take it apart you have to completeley reassemble it the same way:)

Scroll pad not scrolling on my vaio e series laptop

The computer model VGN-BX540B is shipped with XP OS. Follow the steps mentioned on below link to check of the scroll function of the touchpad is enabled.

If it is enabled and still the scroll is not working, reinstall the touchpad driver and check: Dowload the touchpad driver from the below link:(XP)

If you have upgraded the OS to Vista, Follow the steps mentioned on below link to check of the scroll function of the touchpad is enabled.

If it is enabled and still the scroll is not working, the issue is most likely to the limitation of the driver which will not work in Vista environment.
At this point what I will suggest is to download and install the Touchpad driver for different model with Vista OS installed in it.

As Sony has a model check code for all the drivers, use Universal Extractor to extract the setup file and run it. This will work.

Laptop Freezing Problem

To be honest this still sounds like a fan problem. The freeze will happen if the laptop overheats. Maybe you should have it repaired again by a different company.(ask for the fan to be replaced!)
