Sony Vaio laptop (PCG-61317L) once I start browsing the internet, the screen freezes and the mouse cursor disappears from screen. When I don't browse the internet, it sometimes does the same thing


The reason this is happening is that as you are typing; you're resting some weight on the thin plastic above the touchpad...which then makes contact and registers a 'click'; thus moving your cursor around. Or you're brushing your thumb against it when hitting the space key.

Some laptops are more susceptible to this than others. Some more modern laptops come with a button to turn the touchpad off to solve this very problem.

The only thing you can do about this is to disable the touchpad through the touchpad driver (down by the clock, usually) and use a mouse instead. Depending on how you use your laptop, this will be more or less inconvenient- if your laptop never leaves the desk; disable the touchpad and use a mouse...no problem. If you go mobile a lot, you'll have to enable and disable the touchpad all the time.

The other thing you can do is adapt your typing style so you don't put any weight on anything but the key you're pressing. This is quite difficult and uncomfortable, and is not recommended for long sessions.

Cannot access the web through windows - laptop says i do not have a wi fi connection although i have no problems accessing quick web access when of course i do have a wi fi connection. all other pcs work...


You can try a few things, sometimes my laptop does this.

1.Bring up the start menu and type "cmd.exe" into the search box and press enter when it has found it.

In this window, type "ipconfig /release". Wait for it to run through and then type "ipconfig /renew". The second part can take a while depending on your network configuration. You can close this black window now and try the internet again.

2. If this doesn't work, try rebooting the computer (turning it off, then back on again).

If you still don't have any luck, contact me via my profile and we'll find a way to fix your computer.

Possibly you have a programme running in the background that is causing the freezes, could be a screensaver. i think at sometime microsoft will issue an update that will fix this problem.

My Sony VAIO's wireless switch doesnt wanna work...When I turn it on the Wi-Fi program comes up but the computer cant get conected to the internet and the light next to the bottom stays off...what shoud I...


Try to go to another place where there is free WIFI like Starbucks or similar place.

If the computer can connect there, the the problem is with the WEP KEY on your modem/router. You need to update this key on your computer's wireless connections.

We need to know what operating systems do you have and what kind of modem/router do you have to help you more.

What is the average price for the Sony Vaio VGN-AR230g?? what is the difference between that sony vaio and the Sony Vaio VGN-AW190? which would be more recommendable?


Briefly:-
The Sony AW models only came out in October 2008, whereas the AR series started back in early 2007.

There are a great many AR models, and you can judge their degree of sophistication by the last letters of the model numbers. As I remember these last letters are E, M, S and Z, E being pretty basic and Z most highly featured.

The S and Z models tend (but do check this!) to have higher screen resolutions, viz 1920 x 1280 or something of that sort, whereas E and M have fewer pixels. The hard disc sizes vary from about 300 to 640 GB, going up the scale, and also the graphics cards vary, the best possible (on the Z models) being NVidia 7600 or 8600 GT.

All the AR laptops are big, about 3.7 kg weight, with 17" screens. They all have 2 gigabytes of memory apart from the very latest S and Z models, summer 2008 onwards, which have 4 gigabytes.

ARs now (March 2009) are officially discontinued, but you may still find them on line. Prices range enormously, from about £600 to about £1600. They were very well reviewed in their time, though some people disliked the keyboard, which is rather small.

The AW series so far as I know includes only 2 models, one at about £1400 which is very similar to the Z series AR except for being quite a different shape - widescreen, 18.6 inches diagonal and abou 1000 x 1900 pixels - with a higher spec graphics card, NVidia 9600, and another which is similar but about £1000 dearer, because it has a partly solid state disk.

That information is the fruit of my own recent exploration of this topic - I ended by buying a Z series AR. Hope this helps!
