UNINSTALL DE A.R.C.H.I.E. Program

Hi.

I bought an Sony VAIO CR laptop from one of your stores in Las Vegas about a week ago. It was one from your exposition products. I just turned it on today and saw that de software ARCHIE was instaled in the laptop.

I can't uninstall the ARCHIE software because and don't have the ARCHIE CD! And I don't know what to do.

Need help!

Thanks.

Though Best Buy should of removed that for you, Sony has a hidden recovery partition that will restore everything to factory settings wiping your hard drive of anything you have now. When you boot up your computer press F12 to enter the recovery manager....If it's not F12 try F11, They are different for each manufacture.

Hope this helps.

I bought my new Sony Vaio VPCEH last 2 weeks ago,. dual core, 2.3ghz, 4gb ram.. what i wondered is why my cpu almost overload all the time even i just use firefox, or explorer (opening folders ) or so


The CPU is runnimg with a useage of 45-60% as soon as the laptop has booted up because Kapersky is upgrading the virus definition file and is running a virus check on the files stored on the hard disk. When Kapersky has finished these tasks then you will see a drop in CPU useage.
NOTE as you install more programs and as your data files increase so will it take longer for Kapersky to carry out the virus scan.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN CR 490. The screen flickers and begins to fade out. Sometimes if I push on the screen, it will come back up. What's wrong?


HI there

It seems to me that you have a loose connection betweeen your screen and the backlit panel that ensures the display on the screen. It is best to have it sorted out by a qualified technician, probably a Sony one would be best. The store that you bought it from should be able to assist you in this regard

How old is the battery? Sounds like one of the NIMH cells went dead or the battery management circuit in the battery pack is bad. There are YouTube videos available for laptop battery problems.

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
