To use Vob files with movie maker, they need to be converted first. This can take a little while, but there is no other way, as windows doesn support dvd playback by default, and whilst codecs will give you playback, movie maker will not accept them, even with the codecs. To convert your vob files to "avi" (the format needed for movie maker) yoou will need converting software. Most of this is very expensive, but thankfully, one of the best is actually free! It's name is "super" and it can be found at the following web address http://www.erightsoft.com/S6Kg1.html
By the way, the download link is at the bottom of the page.
Wish you the best of luck,

Just install VLC player. That is a free media player, light and supports most formats, including the VOB files.

Welcome to Fixya. To be able to fix the issue you need to press FN + Numlock key of your keyboard. The numlock key is on that's why number appears instead of letters. Numlock key is next to F12 button.

Thanks for using Fixya.

it may be that you have a broken display signal cable in the unit. these are pretty cheap to replace but do require getting a trained technician like myself to replace it for you, as there is a significant amount of work involved in actually swapping it out.

good luck, tim

sadly as with most laptops it is normally cheaper to turn around and buy a whole new machine then try to replace a motherboard, so unless you desperately need that exact machine i suggest getting a new one

if your pc currently had vista then a windows 7 recovery will not help. if you have a windows 7 key or vista you can format and start fresh providing the hard drive isn't what's corrupt or damaged.

Remove main battery and power up, next! sub out the ram one at a time and test, remove the second piece and put the first one back for a valid test.

According to the information online, the issue might be due to the VAIO Launcher Application.
The VAIO Launcher Application is responsible for the functionality of the AV Mode keys.
Hence, it would be better to re-install the VAIO Launcher Application.
It is also recommended to install the Sony Shared Library before installing the VAIO Launcher Application.
I have mentioned all the links from which you can download the Sony Shared Library and the VAIO Launcher Application:

i think you need to reformat and reinstall the OS on the machine to fix the problem. Some internal data is corrupt and does contribute to the failure of turning off and turning on.
