I wonder if your 'Front Light' seems any dimmer than what it was?

It can be your aging power supply is not providing the full voltage your laptop needs?... Let's say your laptop needs 19.5 Volts (and it DOES), but your supply can only provide 16 or lower volts? You may see results like you are getting now...

New supplies are not that expensive (about $14 inc US shipping) and rather spending a lot for diagnostics and waiting a week or so, a new fresh supply MAY be all you need!

OK... I just found a NEW supply for $8.52 on eBay for your system and he's a US Shipper too. It's worth a try!

Windows Vista is no longer the current operating system supported by Microsoft. Try to upgrade or get a full copy of Windows 7. Windows 7 works a lot better than Windows Vista did. If you have the discs for Windows Vista, then try ot reinstall, but, again, Windows 7 is the current operating system for Microsoft.

You should send it to them, it absolutely sounds like the computer is overheating which would be the cause of a faulty fan. Make sure you back up all of your information prior to sending the computer out, as they won't hesitate to reset the computer back to its factory settings. Continuing to use the computer in its current state could cause more permanent damage to the computer, so back it up and send it out as soon as possible.

There is a panel beneath the laptop with 3 screws. Take the panel off and you can gain access to the heatsink and fan

This is the system error and it comes when the user doesnot shut the comp in proper way.//
it can also come if due to some reason the comp is shut automatically//
to get rid of it try last known good configuration.
shut down the comp// restart and immed start hitting f 8 cont to get the advance boot menu//
select LKGC and once that is done hopefully your computer will boot perfectly//

Check if your network settings is configured properly.
Try to see if you have configured a working IPAddress and check your workgroup if you are in a network.
Go to MSDOS prompt
Use ipconfig /all - check your ipaddress
Type ping www.yahoo.com - check if its receives the reply data's 100%

Thanks. Cheers!

Replace the Cameras Wire Harness, or the Camera itself. You can obtain the parts from Sony

Cracking sound means either your HDD is going to die or lost of dust on ur FAN.
if sound comes out from Fan side then you can blew dust out using air compressor cane for more over if you are handy on computer then just remove keyboard and blow away all dust (But this is not recommended if you are not well aware of taking parts apart).
If its from HDD (Hard disk Drive) then its time for replacement.
but my guess goes to Fan once its freezes up frequently so Fan needs to be cleaned.
Try from outside blowing up dust if problem still remains then fan needs to be taken out which only Tech can do if you are not familiar with it.

Please post back comments on it.

thank you,

Please book the laptop into a reputable PC shop or laptop engineer to replace for you
