Sony :: New VAIO FW, Can't Write Blank DVD+R

Mar 14, 2009

I've been a lurker for a while now and I just received my new VGN-FW390 today. I tried to create the recovery discs and the drive will simply not recognize any DVD+Rs. I've tried the built in Windows DVD Maker and Click to Disc.

I just got the computer today and I'm trying to get a clean version of Vista installed so I can get rid of these apps and install my own but I can't even get the recovery discs created.

The drive I have is the Pioneer BD-RW BDR-TD01 .....

Sony :: Plastic Blank For Optical Drive In VAIO SR

Nov 30, 2009

if there is a blank you can replace the optical drive with in the SR series. Preferably a part that is sold by Sony themselves. I hardly use my DVD drive and having it power on and then off each time I bring the notebook out of standby drains battery. I also intend to reduce the weight of the SR by removing the optical drive.

With my old Thinkpad, I was able to remove the optical drive and replace it with a blank fairly easily. I think Lenovo calls it a "travel blank."

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T430U Not Booting - Blank Screen Or Never Gets Passed Splash Screen

Nov 25, 2014

System specs:
Lenovo T430U
Intel i5-3427U
8GB PC3-12800 DDR3-1600MHz SoDIMM Memory
HDD 500G 7200rpm Toshiba
mSATA 24GB Samsung Cache
Win 8 Pro, upgraded to 8.1
 
I rarely use this machine but a couple of months ago I went to boot it up and found that I was not able to get past the Windows splash screen. Sometimes I don't even get the Windows splash screen, I just get a black screen. Rarely I get a Windows screen saying that it is diagnosing a system problem or something to that effect and I can even get to where it will allow me to do some Windows diagnostics but nothing ever comes of it and the process is extremely slow.
 
I called Lenovo, but of course my machine is out of waranty so the tech just gave me a few pointers and said I could send it in to the depo but the potential repair cost could range up to about 75% of what I paid for the machine in the first place. Anyways, after having me try a few things in the BIOS he suggested that it was likely the hard drive. I mistakenly thought from the time that I bought this machine that the OS was installed on the 24 GB SSD so I ordered a new SSD and swapped it in. This made no difference at all as I have now learned that the mSATA SSD drive is merely for cache to speed up booting.
 
I am afraid that this means the main HDD is at fault, and quite frankly, if I replace it I am going to do a fresh install of Windows 7. But I do have pictures and docs that I would like to salvage if possible.

Sony :: Vaio FZ Screen

Mar 9, 2010

Sony Vaio FZ Screen

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.

Sony :: VAIO AW Screen's Buzzing!

Oct 25, 2009

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

Sony :: Vaio Z Screen That Would Dim And Comeback On Again

Sep 5, 2009

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.

Sony :: Water Under Vaio FW LCD Screen

Aug 19, 2009

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)

Sony :: Vaio Z11 Screen Brightness

May 22, 2010

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.

Sony :: Laptop Screen- Vaio

Dec 10, 2009

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.

Sony :: Vaio Z21 Screen And TrackPad

Sep 3, 2009

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.

Sony :: Marks On Vaio Z11 (VGN-Z11) Screen

Oct 21, 2009

Has anyone else noticed marks on their screen caused by the ridge that sits just above the trackpad?

I always ensure that the screen is against a folder or other flat surface in my bag so that it is protected from pressure. I have previously had screen damage to other laptops caused by keyboards and parts of the inner surface rubing against the screen when the laptop is closed.

In the last few months I have seen marks on my Z11's screen in the form of a line across the screen 2/3 of the way up where the ridge between the trackpad and keyboard occasionally presses against the screen but they had always wiped off. Yesterday I went to wipe them off and it seems as though thay are permanent

On a cheap laptop bad design like this is acceptable but on something this expensive it really isn't OK!! Especially when they market the screen as being resistant to marks...

Sony :: Vaio FW Screen Heat

Sep 1, 2009

Recently I have noticed that at the bottom of my Sony FW screen it gets quite hot. It gets hot where the Sony writing is, all the way along the bottom, where I think the screens inverter is located behind.

Also If I run my finger from the bottom of the screen, upwards, towards the top, it gradually goes from warm to cold.

Is there something overheating or would this just be normal?

I have found some online for the older version but they seem to have changed the way the pc is built.

Sony :: Brand New Vaio Z Screen

Jan 23, 2010

I just got a Vaio VGN-Z890 off the sonystyle website. As soon as i turned it on I saw a red screen with a pixelated windows symbol. When I got to the desktop screen it looks like there's a red tint covering the whole screen, kinda like someone put red cellophane over it. I thought it was the video card so I updated it from the drivers on the sony support website but I got the same result. I hooked it up to my 32" Samsung tv and it looked beautiful with the right colors. So this leads me to believe that it is a problem with the notebook's lcd. The funny thing is, if I go in and change the gamma and other display settings I can get the screen to change to a green or purple tint. I thought that a failing lcd screen could only be red?

-Also, although I am mechanically inclined, I'd rather let sony open up the laptop and check the gpu connection, lest they blame any problems on me in the future for tampering.

Sony :: Vaio Z Screen Flashes At Startup

Apr 6, 2009

I just received my Vaio Z this past weekend! Everything works great, but I did notice that my screen flashes once when I boot into windows. Is this normal? I did do a full system recovery with the option of not preinstalling extra software (don't need excess things on the laptop); I do not think this is the reason, but I do not remember if this happened before.
