Hi,

I apologize that I have lost you from chat. However, I can assist you further in Question and Answer mode.

If the issue still persists, get into Vaio recovery center, and reinstall the following.

  • Setting Utility Series
  • Sony Shared Library
  • VAIO Event Service
  • VAIO Control Center

 

 

If the issue still persists, turn off the computer, remove all external devices, Cds, AC Adapter and battery from the computer. Then, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. After that, insert the battery and Adapter, then turn on the computer.

 

If you have any questions, please let me know. If the issue resolved or the response was helpful, please click ACCEPT, so that I can get paid for my time and effort.

 

Thank you.
