It's possibly overheating. If so, you can clean the cooling fins on the heatsink, and/or sit the unit on a cooling "plate"; they usually have a USB plugin to power their fans.

Laptop keyboards do deteriorate from time to time. Once any key stops working, it is time for a replacement. Doing so is not difficult. Simply undo the case screws and gently separate the case to expose the keyboard. The keyboard floats inside and lays in the main board. Lift gently and pull out the small flat wire connection. The keyboard slides out and replace with a new board. Place flat cable in port on the main board, lay keyboard on top of chassis, close the top/bottom of case, tighten screws and all done. Go on line for Keyboards.

the problem most probable is the win xp os that you are using
Microsoft has stopped maintaining win xp quite some time ago and the operating system is failing when changes are made to the extras in use

Did you upgrade to win10? Then you might need to download the older win7 drivers and load them, remove the win10 trackpad driver first then reinstall the win7 ones..
You can find them here Sony eSupport VGN FZ240E Drivers Software

The Operating system maybe corrupted but your files are still good. Try to run a system restore and before the date you notice the system fails to start.

Joe is right on!

I highly DOUBT if your mother board is bad! Your VAIO was working ~ the software got deleted and now it's not working...

I suspect your Windows XP and DRIVERS need to be reinstalled. I also suspect you will have no other 'hardware' problems because it seems highly unlikely both would get trashed at the same time...

ALSO... XP came in 32 Bit and 64 Bit versions... be SURE you have the correct version for your System!

I provided a link for your VAIO drivers below.

Hello -

Depending upon where (in your home?) you use your Sony Vaio laptop (via WiFi?) you may need a WiFi booster or extender. Or, you may find that moving your WiFi router to another location in your home will improve your connection without diminishing the connections for other laptops used in your home.

Perhaps the information here will prove instructive:

Note: If the router needs to be moved in your home, you will probably need a technician for your Internet provider to come to your home to relocate it and connect it properly.
