Problems in Sony® VAIO W Series
Common issues with the Sony VAIO® W Series
As your Sony VAIO® W Series grows older, you can see physical signs of wear and tear take its toll on the system. That is normal since technology does have its limitations. It is essential to understand the various issues and how to address them. Though your Sony VAIO® W Series is showing some signs of age, you can still do something about the issues to avoid future problems. Here are some of the common problems that could come with the Sony VAIO® W Series laptop and how to address the issues:
- Keyboard Volume Control
- Noisy Fan
- Issues when charging
Keyboard Volume Control
The sounds of the keyboard are controlled by the hotkey. If the hotkey starts to fail, it might be caused by the outdated drivers for the keyboard on your Sony VAIO® W Series. You can find the drivers on the hotkeys as well as audio and video cards on the official Sony® website. One tip is to check for new drivers at least once a month to prevent any problems regarding the keyboard and other components of the Sony VAIO® W Series.
One of the most common problems regarding the Sony VAIO® W Series is that the fan could become very noisy. This is usually caused by the clogging of dirt in the fan vent that prevents it from running effectively. With pressurized air, you can blow away the dirt from the vents on the fan area as well as the vents of the machine for efficient release of heat. This will make the fan run silently again and it will prevent the system from heating up too fast.
Batteries for the Sony VAIO® W Series tend to wear down fast. This is normal since the cells of batteries can wear down with time. You can prevent premature wear and tear by using the battery only when you are out or when the laptop is not connected to a main power source. You should remove the battery pack if you are using the laptop for a long time. This will prevent the laptop battery from dying out fast. If you keep in mind these very simple steps and tasks, you can lengthen the life of your Sony VAIO® W Series and its essential components.
