I own a Sony Vaio VGN NS190D and recently I've been receiving a "dumping physical memory error". Since I've always been able to restart and start working again, I've never paid it any mind. Just today though, I had a BSOD and no matter how many times I try, it wont go past that. I've tried the start-up repair and starting in safe mode but it still blue screens.
I have a Vaio FW series laptop and whenever i unplug the power cord from the laptop when it is running a blue screen appears. It says a bunch of stuff but i cant really make out what it says since its really quick and then the laptop restarts. This is getting very annoying. It even happen a few times when i unplugged a USB drive from the laptop. It just recently started a few days ago, before that it was perfectly fine. I have no clue what could be causing this.
I purchased a Sony VAIO VGN-NW270F/S with a blue ray player. Im trying to play the blue ray using the HDMI out to my Sony 46 inch HDTV, i got an error. After tech support with Sony, I basically am using my tv as a monitor and playing the blue ray there. My question is, what resolution is the blue ray playing in on my TV? The maximum resolution I could choose on the computer is 1366/768....how can i use the Blue Ray in my computer to play the full HD movie on my TV?
I just have a question regarding aftermarket upgrade of blue ray for Vaio Z series, did any one try upgrading with any aftermarket blue ray drive for Z series? If so what is the compatibility criteria and did anyone find one for Z series
I found a notebook blue ray rom for $79
but it is IDE interface I am not sure what interface is for Z series.
I have recently bought FW 590FEB, after using it for 5 days, I got three times blue screen problem like this:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent the damage. [url]
1st blue screen, windows 7 shut down unexpectedly 2nd blue screen, windows 7, don't really know since I went to out and find out when I start the pc, it said shut down unexpectedly, 3rd blue screen, windows 7 close/shut down by itself while i was running VLC and utorrent, and it when to the screen where we can choose start windows with safe mode or normal...
I don't know what is happening with this blue screen problem, since this is my first experience with this trouble,
Is it software/drive issue or hardware? Should I restore it to factory setting? I think it it shutdown by itself, every time i use Google Chrome and utorrent.....
Bought the white Sony CPCCW17FX from Best Buy for my wife. She's been really happy with the laptop. Only problem is she's has had occasional blue screens. It's being caused by some conflict with the display driver.
We're running the 186.47's that are provided on the Sony site. Laptop doesn't want to accept the mobile drivers off the Nvidia site. This is obviously the 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium.
I got a FW590GJB. it was originally win 7 64bit installed. after a week i saw that wile i am in windows, the screen turns to black and comes to normal again with balloon error: "The ATI drives was stopped responding and successfully recovered". I didn't care. but after a month, i saw "blue screens" while using windows, and recently it happens on start up. before each blue screen there are noisy lines on screen. the colors mix and system hangs. and eventually "blue screen" comes and restarts the system. I downloaded several versions of my ATI 4650 Driver (8.36 - 8.56 - 8.65), no changes...
I used recovery dvds. it even doesn't let me finish the recovery process and crash lines happen and restarts the system... I tried win 7 32bit. same thing happened. This time I could install the windows but when desktop comes, it last for only about 2 minutes, and then the screen mixes the colors and blue screen again...
I installed Vista 32 bit. it works with no problems. I also installed XP 32bit, it worked with no problems. but i want to have win 7 64 bit on my system... what is the problem with win 7 and my system?
I have wiped my hard drive and want to install windows xp sp3. I burned this dvd from an image and I'm getting some type of stop error with a blue screen of death. This happens on the Sony Z and also on other laptops that I have tried
I have T140p with bluescreens, I've replaced the harddrive, the voltage regulator and disconnected almost every peripheral. but still - have bluescreens. Is it possible that the Cmos battery is responsible for it
I am considering some laptops and the sony vaio is one of them. I have heard great things about the screen but it is glossy, something I have sworn off all these years. I have seeing reflections on my screen. how the anti-reflective screen performs?
Overnight a problem with the screen on my Sony Vaio FZ has become apparent. A think multi colour bar had started to appear at the bottom of the screen. I am not entirely sure if the problem is related to the 8400GT graphics processor, I have had a preciously faulty one replaced which I hope reduces the likelihood that the graphics processor is the culprit. I am just going through now backing up my data in case the fault spreads further. My eye sight may not be sharp enough but it may have expanded.
Note that in the pictures attached it appears green but when I have something else up as wallpaper, or a program open, the colours change to reflect in some way what is on the rest of the screen. For example when I have word opinion the blue background appears black on the bar, the text area is a shade of grey. Also, my taskbar is not that thick. My available space on screen has not gone away as much as the fault bar suggests it should have, it is as though my screen has adjusted in some way.
I have Sony VAIO VGN-AW360J. About two weeks ago I noticed something weird with the brightness regulation of the display. When I tried to change the brightness
(always set up to the maximum) to a lower degree using the keys (Fn – F5) a high pitch noise can be heart coming from the screen (to be more exact -
from the lid of the laptop, below the VAIO logo), and it is very noticeable in a quieter environment. Continuing lowering the degrees of brightness would cause higher or less noise. The nosier setting is at 90% of brightness
I have a Sony FS VGN-FS640 Vaio laptop and when i boot the laptop all i see is the Vaio logo and then the screen goes blank nothing happens! how can i bring the windows back? This laptop runs winodws XP.
I purchased a Vaio Z about 2 weeks ago. Last night, I brought the notebook out of standby and after a few minutes of working with it, I noticed a vertical region on the right side of the screen that would dim and comeback on again, just like you see with florescent lights when they are faulty. There was no specific pattern to it, just random. I turned the notebook on and off, and the problem seems to be gone. I was wondering if anyone has ever had this problem before or know what it is.
I would like to know if there's a way to remove the liquid under my LCD screen.
At first there was a big circle with a diameter of 3 inches. then after leaving it idle for about 3 or 4 days, the circle shrinked with a diameter of 2 cm. after that, I left the computer alone for another 4 days and that 2cm circle is still there. i turned the laptop and viewed the screen at a 45 angle and i see one normal drop of water and many small drops in that one area.
should i wait until it dries out? or should i disassemble the screen?
- considering there's no air or anything in the LCD screen itself, i dont think the water will disappear anytime soon. possibly 2 or 4 months? lol =(
water came in contact with the SCREEN only, all other parts (keyboard, speakers, cpu, etc. are CLEAN)
Since many people don't have opportunity to see these laptops in person, it would be nice to see some photos from the screen. It would be nice if some could post pictures from dual lamp screen too, so we can compare the difference.
I just got a z11 and will be returning my macbook pro soon.
The only thing that is making me hesitant is the screen brightness of the z. With the plug in and full brightness, it's not that bright, at least NO WHERE NEAR as bright as the macbook pro with high res anti-glare. Is this normal?
How many of you Z owners find the screen brightness too low? Even at full, it feels dim.
I have a Sony Vaio Laptop. Its warranty ended 7th December. Phoned them to get it picked up and now they have it so any work should be covered under warranty.
There is a particle under the screen. I took a picture of it and emailed it to Sony who diagnosed it as dead pixels. They said they would repair it for free under warranty.
Now that they have the laptop they say there is a particle under the screen. They sent me a picture of it and the photo looks identical to what I sent them earlier which they diagnosed dead pixels.
Now they are saying it was accidental damage by me and want to charge to replace the screen (same price as I paid for the laptop).
I think that this is ridiculous and that they should repair it under warranty. They will not accept these two arguments: 1. If I damaged it then I would have had to have opened the screen which there should be evidence of. 2. If the particle got in some other way through a gap then it is a manufacturing flaw because there should be no way of a particle getting in there.
fairly old Vaio laptop. Can barely get past start up screen. Half the time all i get is black screem when i turn it on. I can get into windows though after a few attempts. I would like to completely reformat it, preferably putting on xp or even the new Windows 7. But i dont have any boots discs. So i don't know how to go about doing it. A breif step by step on how to wipe my laptop would be perfect.
Today my 2 week old laptop was closed, put into a fully padded laptop bag, Velcro strap over to hold it in place. Nothing else in the bag. Put in car, drove 80 miles, took out of car and setup. It noticed a small mark on the screen right where the screen folds down to the track pad. It seems the Back ridge of the track pad, has pushed onto the screen creating this mark.
