Sony :: New Vaio CW Wireless Not Working

Feb 12, 2010

I recently got a sony vaio CW at bestbuy yesterday. The link for it is below. Brought it home and started using it.

Everything worked perfectly for the first hour, and then the wireless just went out. It will no longer allow me to search for wireless networks. Two other laptops in my house are working fine so its not the router.

The wireless switch on the front is ON, however the little light is not lit. When I go to the SmartWi Connection Utility in the taskbar, it only lists an on/off option for Bluetooth, no Wifi option

Sony :: Vaio Z21, Wireless Not Working After Drop

Mar 10, 2010

Some days ago my wife dropped my Sony Z21 from about 1 meter. Everything seems to work fine except Wlan, Bluetooth and HSDPA. I don't think that any of those modules are broken or something as everything else survived the drop. Does anyone know if all 3 wireless options are connected through some kind oa board? If so then I assume the connection is loose and that causes the wireless to drop. At the beginning it turned on and off the wireless ramdomly...

Sony :: VAIO- If A VAIO Had No Ram Should (if All Else Was Working) It Be Getting POST Beeps

Jan 15, 2010

I have just been given a VAIO PCG8A2M (GRX316MP) , i was told "it's broken but if you can fix it yo can have it" so having a quick look at it there's no sign of life on the display but the lights come on and i can here the HDD heads moving about.

Looking a little more i found that all the ram is missing , so now im not sure if its worth buying some ram to see if it works or not ? The lack of ram would prob explain the lack of display but i wonder if i should be getting POST beeps at least, which im not.

So my question is if a VAIO had no ram should (if all else was working) it be getting POST beeps ?

Sony :: Wireless Connection- VAIO SR 390

Mar 4, 2009

My new Sony VAIO SR 390 arrived yesterday. When I turn on the computer, restart, awake from sleep, etc, I have to manually disconnect and reconnect to my wireless network. If I don't, I have the little yellow triangle in the tray saying "unidentified network" and the internet doesn't work.

I have turned the wireless switch on and off, disabled and enabled the connection, updated the driver, and changed the power settings in the device manager. All of this has not helped.

Other than that, I have had no problems and I'm very happy with the computer. I haven't noticed the battery drain issue either.

Sony :: Vaio Z Cannot Detect My Wireless

Mar 20, 2009

My 4 week old Z is unable to detect the wireless device. The switch is on and the green light is on, but the wireless device is not detected. I checked the device manager and installed the newest drivers from the Sony website, but the computer still fails to identify the wireless.

I contacted ESupport and they were completely worthless, telling me to reinstall my program and drivers and, when that failed, told me to do a full recovery. I did that and it still failed. I live in an university area and there are tons of connections. It worked fine until today when I forced the computer to shut down due to its lack of response.

Sony :: Vaio Z-540 Wireless (Intel 5100 AGN)

Mar 7, 2010

I've been using my Sony Vaio Z-540 without a problem for about a YEAR
until recently (about a month?), my wifi has been acting up.

My wireless card is Intel 5100 AGN

The problems are:
1. Sometimes, I do not get wireless from the startup . my wireless isn't even in the Device Manager...

2. When I do get wireless (Device manager confirmed), wifi connection disappears with even the SLIGHTEST MOVEMENT!

3. When I do lose the wireless driver (no more on the device manager), I put it to sleep, wait 5 seconds, wake up, and my vaio detects it. [but this isn't the case for ALL the time, sometimes I have to restart the vaio]

I thought it was a loose wire or loose card, so I opened it. The wireless card is bolted down with 2 screws. So i put everything back and it still has the SAME issue.

Also, I've updated the Intel 5100 Driver to the latest (When I finally got my Wireless driver seen on the device manager) but still the SAME problem, so I'm back on my OLD driver. still same problem, of course.

when I do have my wifi, my wifi just disappears with the SLIGHTEST MOVEMENT on my laptop. It has to be still...

Ethernet connect, however, works 100%

Sony :: VAIO Z-Series Wireless Connection Drops

Mar 27, 2009

I own a Z series Z540. After multiple Vista reinstalls and driver reinstalls, the wireless connection always drops. It would maintain connection for about 5 minutes, then it drops again. The wireless light stays on though.

I tried going on XP and ssee how that works out. Same problem, except that it drops when I MOVE it. And when it drops, the wireless light turns off, and when I move it back into a certain position again, the wireless light goes back on, and the wireless is back.

However, when I am on vista, the connection just drops for no reason, even without touching it, every 5 minutes. The light does stay on, though.

Sony :: Vaio G11 Brightness Keys Not Working In XP

Jan 5, 2009

This is almost a classic problem. I just installed XP SP3 on a Vaio G11. I did everything according to Sony's plan. But the brightness keys don't work.

Is there a chance that Sony's drivers were written for XP SP2, and that SP3 is the cause of my problems?

Reason I'm thinking this is that SP3 recognized some devices that SP2 doesn't recognize

Sony :: Vaio Touchpad Stops Working

Feb 15, 2009

If anyone out there runs into an issue with the touchpad on a Sony Vaio where it suddenly stops working it may be due to static electricity. I bought a brand new VGN-NS240E (Jan 08 @ Best Buy) and while setting it up I ran into this issue and have seen many other reports on the WEB of the Sony touchpads suddenly dying. Try these steps for an easy fix:

1 - power down the unit.
2 - unplug the power adapter.
3 - remove the battery.
4 - hold down the power switch for about a minute or two.
5 - re-insert the battery.
6 - reconnect the power adapeter.
7 - power the unit on and see if the touchpad lives!

These quick and simple steps worked for me 2x. Noted on the second time it happened that I shocked the machine after walking across the carpet, that's why I said above I think its related to a static charge - bad design on this model of touch pad I suppose. I have Dell laptops and Acers never seen it before until this Sony.

Sony :: VAIO VGN-FW11E Touch Pad Stopped Working

Mar 2, 2009

I bought my Sony VAIO VGN-FW11E at the beginning of January and have been very happy with it. A notebook that has very similar specs to macbook pro at half the price! Wicked.

A week ago the touch pad stopped working . Only a USB mouse will keep the cursor alive. I'm posting this because I couldn't find any relevant info on any forums or online sony support centres and hope this might aid others in the same situation.

If your Sony VAIO touch pad doesn't work there are steps to take to find out exactly where the problem lies...

It might be static electric interference try...

1. Shut down
2. Unplug adapter
3. Remove battery
4. Hold down the power button for 1-2 minutes
5. Insert battery
6. Power on, test.

Still under warranty Sony phone support were however quite helpful and efficient, this is what they told me............

Sony :: Stopping Wireless Static In SZ Series (after Upgraded Wireless)

Mar 20, 2010

if you have an older SZ and want to add a 3rd wire, this will show you how and where to put it.

So a while back I upgraded the the 4965AGN in my SZ750N to an Intel 5200, since that day, B&G has been noisy. I managed to arrange the antenna connections in such a way as to minimize it to within tolerable limits. I also talked to some experts and they said it wasn't going to hurt anything if there was a bit of static so I left it.

I have known for a while that is was the white antenna lead that was causing the static. Unfortunately disconnecting it caused a drop in signal. While working on my Windows 7 guide I had a problem and had to open the laptop. While doing so I noticed the white lead and the antenna it attached to. I hadn't ever really noticed where it sat before. Sony couldn't have hardly chosen a worse place for it.

Sony decided the best place for it, and I assume this is because they merely upgraded the old 2 wire wireless to 3 by adding this, is almost under the power button. Right next to... a speaker. The lead runs along a Speaker wire and puts the antenna right next to it. See pics 1 & 2................

HP/Compaq :: Wireless Not Working When Plugged In

Jun 26, 2009

sometimes when i plug in, the wireless disables itself. hp wireless helper app tells me that it is disabled using the button... but the button is on. and then immediately when i unplug the laptop and run on battery, the wireless turns on and connects, and the wireless light on the switch is blue.

i tried disabling and enabling the wireless network adapter, it didnt work. i tried turning the switch on/off manually while plugged in, it doesnt work.

also, i noticed that the LED for the "power on" near the wireless switch (next to "charging" light and "HDD access" light is very dim or off, while the laptop is on. I think it might be related.
