20 Most Recent Sony VAIO VGN-SZ460N/C Notebook Questions & Answers

My Vaio touchpad started behaving strange. I could move the curser, but no response on left or right click or double tap. Also found that in any search field or user name fields, the computer would just type endless 9's. My wireless mouse could operate the left and right click buttons, but not move the curser. A suggestion to get the mousepad operating again was to touch any key on the keyboard. This allowed it to function again. Final solution was to remove the battery, then hold down the start key for about a minute, reinsert the battery and start it up. It seems to have resolved the problem. I have a 3 month only laptop with Windows 7 already installed. Hope this helps.

To resolve these problems, you can simply change or reset forgotten Windows password with a Windows password reset disk. A password reset disk is a flash drive configured with your current password, specially formatted to reset the password on Windows machine when you ever forget it. It acts as a key to unlock the account. But the problem is that we often forgot to create a password reset disk and cannot log on computer with any user account.Of course, a common solution is to use a third party software, just take Windows Password Unlocker for example. It can help you remove lost Windows password including Windows administrator, user and domain password on Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000/2003(R2)/2008(R2), etc. You can easily reset Windows password with a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive in hand.

Try to go to the manufacturer's website. Manufacturer's usually provide device drivers for download.

Here is the link for the Bluetooth driver for your device : Original Drivers and Applications for VPCYB Series : Bluetooth Driver.

Note that this is the direct download. As soon as you click on it, the download will begin.

Hope this resolves the problem.

The first step should be to browse the producers website to see if there are drivers for Windows 7. If not you can try to install vista drivers for your peripherals many times they work anyway.

Your Notebook Manufacturing Company SONY says that your Notebook Model VGN-SZ460N/C is optimized to work with Vista OS only. So the drivers you will be installing for XP may lost some of their functionality under XP platform. Still, you can download all your Notebook supporting drivers from this link.

Download Drivers from here

But remember to select your Operating System (XP/Vista/Seven) when you will be downloading from the above site.

I hope this will be helpful to you.

The camera driver/software might got corrupted or conflicts with other/ third party applications.
What you can do is to try reinstalling the camera drivers and software from the link below


the camera drivers/software are listed under
Camera - 4 file(s)

Be sure to install everything under that category. Start from bottom to top.

It sounds like you might have a fan problem that overloaded your HDD, if this is the case you might need to get a whole new HDD because the information can be fried. If possible, backup your information and install it on the new HDD if that's the case.

Generally, if a mouse button quits working, it requires the replacement of the touchpad assembly.
Boot to the safe mode, see if the button works there, if it doesn't, then it is a failure of the switch in the button

remove the battery, plug the laptop up into the wall outlet and turn it on. If it boots fine then its your battery. Other then that the possibilities are this.

1. Your Processor has gone to junk
2. your hard drive has fried
3. or the pc board has fried.

Do you hear the hard drive spinning at all? if not this would be the first thing i would check. Only problem only real way to test it at home is if you got an other laptop put it in their and turn it on or buy a new one.

To test the board best way to do is open up your laptop by removing screws on the bottom, and looking over the bored and seeing if you see any burnt areas.

To test the CPU, really isnt a easy way to test this either, other then put a new one in.

IMPORTANT: if your laptop is under warenty opening up your laptop and trying to replace these will avoid your warrenty with this company.

best thing to do if under warrenty is to contact sony vaio,

if not take it to a repair shop, or try replacing the above things, starting with the hardrive

also make sure the ram is pushed into the board. (it looks like a rectangle)

Not booting means what? Does it not go into Windows or does it not finish loading Windows? Please clarify. In the mean time study the following link and tell me what is the problem in details.
