Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?

Determining whether the problem is with hardware

\015 When I am typing email or using Word, sometimes the letters I am typing skip, and appear in the middle of other lines or words. This has been happening a very long time. I have a service contract, but Sony says it's not a hardware problem. They tell me I need to clear out the hard drive and start over. I did this once, and it did not help. Does anyone know what I should do?\015

Answers :

It's almost definetly a hardware problem, if you formatted and still have the same problem.
