Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Sony Vaio Laptop help. Ok, so my brother was using my sister's laptop. He said that he tried to guess the password "a few times", and finally got it. Then tried to use the internet and the laptop shut off randomly. The laptop won't turn on, there are no lights on it. No sounds, nothing. Does anyone know what could have happened? Or how I could fix it? Her laptop is: Sony VAIO, VGN-FS740/W Windows XP... Let me know if you need any more information. Thank you.

Could be overheating CPU, trying cleaning the air vents with some compressed AIR, i doubt theres a security to shut off the computer if you gotten the wrong password.

This will start the computer in Safe Mode.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.

Ok i set an password for my sony vaio laptop but it wont let me log on into my computer how can i fix this problem?


Hi,

It is unfortunate that you forgot the password that you set on the computer. As of try booting the computer to safe mode, usually the default administrator account will not have a password. If it works then you can change the password of your profile.

Otherwise, recovery will be required. As you have not mentioned the VAIO model #, it is difficult to tell if the computer was shipped with recovery partition or discs. You need to perform a recovery using the applicable one in this situation.

Thanks!!!!

My sony vaio CR VGN-CR35G/R has reboot problem it gets hanged every time while rebooting.


Hi,

If your laptop has a Microsoft Windows operating system you can do the following.
  1. Boot up the computer
  2. Press the F8 key evey few seconds until you see a screen with options.
  3. Once you see the screen select the option which says "Last Known Good Configuration"
This will start up your laptop as it was the last time you manages to log in ok or your laptop started ok.

Please note that any drivers/software etc that you may have installed before the problem began may not work.

I hope this helps,
John

I have a sony vaio PCG-7141L with WI-FI but I can't connect to internet due to a secure network password, what can I do?


Firstly, are you trying to use your wireless internet or someone elses?

Because if it's someone elses, thats exactly why they've put the password on so that other people can't use their connection.

However, if it's your wireless network you're trying to connect to, then it would be worth using your wireless cd software to change your password to something you know or to take it off completely (not reccomended as others can use your connection). You can put the cd in your own laptop and change the password.

Hope this helpe =]

You could try removing the cmos battery for a few minutes and letting it reset your bios. Not sure if you feel comfortable enough messing arounnd on the motherboard though.

Sony vaio motion eye


Did u install any other programs anfter your vista instalation? try to uninstall them one by one, My guess is that one of the programs "kidnaped" you camera. By uninstaling one by one you can easy find out witch one it is. After uninstalling one program test your camera. If it works again you that program is the problem.

Good luck
