I checked with a service center close to my place but they seem to be more focused on how much they can fleece me. Some keys do not response. There are no obvious tabs, screws, etc. For the amount this laptop cost we should be able to install a couple programs that we use daily in the office… Thanks to anyone with ideas! Try reconnecting memory modules, make sure they make good connection with the slots. Is it possible to fix this problem? Try replacing the keyboard first and if you still experience the same problem, apparently there is a problem with the keyboard controller.
Plus I cannot visit that city for another three weeks. Press F12 as soon as Toshiba logo appears on the screen. Is it enough just replace the fan or the whole motherboard has to be replaced? I have tried to purchase spares from sony uk but they want to carry out the repair themselves, they wont even give me an estimate without charging me for the privilege. If I open it more than 90degree, It works fine. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem. I have barely used it and left it in pristine condition. There , no more problem.
I reinstalled my system, but no progress. I have tried removed the cmos battery bur it does not help. Can you test your laptop with an external monitor and find out if external video still works? If external video works fine and the problem appears only on the laptop screen, it could be one of the following: 1. Take a look at the screen bezel. I mean I had files in my computer and I am just so worried about it. Anyway thanks for the service manual. So the trick is to keep prising the keyboard at the end where the 3 screws were and it will eventually unstick.
I am not a technican just an enthusiast replaced the screen in 1 hour without any rush. If you have a Bluetooth card installed it should appear in the device manager. Anyway, after cleaning the 1 inch thik layer of dust from the vent area everything is back to normal. Right click on the webcam and uninstall the driver. The power indicator light remains green.
Here is my humble testimony. I think this is ridiculous! Some keys respond as other keys. However, still the laptop is working. Links to the service manuals were posted on one of the comment 13. Could anyone suggest me what might be wrong with the laptop? It is slightly loose and will not stay connected unless I have my hand on it and watch the battery-charge widget to make sure it is connecting and charging the battery. External speakers and headphones are working properly while connecting them in it.
Should I reinstall the driver? What can I do to fix this? It doesnt even boot up or make noises, like it is completely dead. . I have re-install my graphics card once. Laptops are not very upgradeable. Surprise that, when i came and try to start my laptop, i see that alomost half of my screen Bottom went white. Remember not to remove any sellotape sticked on mainboard.
Usually the screen is not totally white. I tried to refit it by applying sloder but the clips were removed from the base of the board. I gave the Vaio to someone who said he was sure he knew how to verify if the motherboard was dead or just the power I got back a box of parts and have no idea how to put it back together. Have you tried calling the official service center? My local technician said it was impossible to repair: something to do with a tfs? Can you see a very faint image? Thanks again for the reply! I actually want to reset the cmos of the laptop so that the system will be set to default values… to allow the system boot properly. If I move it backward, then the image freezes and goes white again.
Then, all of a sudden, the computer shut down, and made a crashing type of sound, which worried me. The progress bar went wonky again. Try removing memory modules one by one. So my question if someone can help me is, is it hard to upgrade all the hardware inside and keep at least the screen? But my Lcd screen appears black. I have looked all over for problems, and apparently Vaios have a lot of problems related to the trackpad. At the time of booting, my screen shows light for 1 second, after that it remains black.
