I had the same problem . The micro switch needs to be replaced . All push button micro switches have a certain amount of "clicks" before they loose ability to make a good contact . Your left click switch has exceeded its life and can no longer make a clean contact without more pressure . Eventually the spring in the switch will fail thus stick permanantly.You will have to take it to an authorized Sony Service center or maybe an office machine service department might have the replacment . I fixed my own with an old mouse microswitch .Hey it's a Cheap laptop and uses cheap parts.

You can download the video and device drivers from the Sony WEB site.
Select your model notebook and the Windows drivers you require. Please click on this link to the Sony support WEB site :-

Note: You may have some difficulties getting these drivers to work with your system. Give them a try and follow all extra instructions if you have any problems.

It's not clear from your post whether your laptop has a separate graphics card or just onboard video. Most laptops only have onboard video. Try and install the drivers from the first link and if those don't work, then you can try the drivers from the second link.

Intel drivers: http://s02.download.sony.com/US/pc/INDVID-01355607-US.EXE
Nvidia drivers: http://s02.download.sony.com/US/pc/NVDVID-01422002-US.EXE

1. Follow appropriate link and download the drivers by clicking Save File.
2. Save the file to the desktop if you are given an option. If you are not given an option the file should be saved to your Downloads folder in your User directory.
3. Find the file you downloaded and right-click on it and select Properties.
4. Click the Compatibility tab and put a check mark next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" Select Windows Vista SP2 in the drop down box. Click Apply and then OK.
5. Run the file. If the drivers won't install, then follow the second link above and follow steps 1-5 again.

Note: If you're still having difficulties installing the drivers, then you may try a few other things.
Run Windows Update from the Start Menu or Control Panel and check for new updates. Select optional updates and select to install any drivers that Windows Update says you need.

Also you might try downloading video card updates straight from NVidia. Follow this link for that: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.

You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

reinstall the operating system

Sony VAIO... | Answered on Feb 24, 2011

In that case you have in your system a program that is draining the power and the network's bandwidth - most likely a trojan. The only way to reliably fix that is to reinstall - use the recovery disk that came with the laptop.

If there is any Fn key dedicated to speaker to mute or unmute, then you can use than button. There will be one hard button on the keypad. This exists for each laptop.

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

Just hold down the F1 key after the two beeps and the computer should continue to boot up as normal

This means that the micro ball-bearings are on their way out if the bearing race smashes then the fan will stop I suggest sourcing a brand new fan and fitting it yourself you might need a star drive look at the profile head of the screws.


Make sure that both the mains supply and battery are removed, the fan will be a simple push to clip connection with only 2 wires.
