Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FJ270/B Notebook

3 Answers

Hi, My Sony Vaio VGN-S360 Touchpad and wireless stopped working. I had the computer fan replaced in hopes to eliminate the heating and loud fan noise problem it was having. The vaio seemed fine when I picked it up from the repair shop. I took it home and never turned it on again for months. Later on, I decided to go use it one day and I noticed the touchpad and now the wireless light isnt lighting up or finding connections in areas connections are all around. The swtich is "on" but its not lite up. As for the touchpad, it worked when I got it back but now it just doesnt work. I have to use a mouse.

Hello,

When a device does not operate for a long time, probably a few months, it sometimes develops hardware errors.

In your case, some devices like the Wireless LAN and the mouse may not be working properly with the device drivers.

The most suitable solution here would be to update your device drivers.
Download all the driver updates from the link i have provided below and install.

The most important drivers you should download are the BIOS, Wireless LAN, Mouse, if posible downlaod all the available drivers and install.

Before downloading, select the operating system you are using and the appropriate version of drivers will be provided for your laptop.
Leave the "Sort Files By Type (optional)" empty so that you can be provided by all available drivers.
To download the drivers, please visit the link below, and select the operating system you are using on the laptop:

Remember to restart your laptop after every driver you install.

Thank you for using Fixya,
Kenneth.

Vgn-cs26m will not start,boot into windws and shuts down


kevin,
Is this the pink sony vaio? Looks familiar . . .
The problem with this model of sony vaio is the fan that's why it keeps on shutting down after a few minutes. If you notice there is no activity on the internal fan. The internal fan and heat sink is on the same module.I have already replaced the fan on one of this models and its now working just fine.
just look for a spare fan on ebay . . .
hope this helps . . .
