Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-UX280P Notebook ?


\015 I carried out a format on my laptop, but I cannot get bluetooth or wireless lan to function, although the indicator lights are on, nor does the AV Mode eject work. Can anyone help?\015\012\015\012Jamie\015

Answers :

The lights indicate that the units are functioning, not that they can connect. most likely is the router is WEP, and the laptop has not had the same encryption key entered into the network settings.
\015\012on a pc that can access the router open the router's configuration page, read the WEP settings, and copy them to the laptop network settings.
\015\012If the laptop still fails to connect, then the reinstall was not complete,
  • laptops are notorious for only working from their own reinstall disk, and only half the time,
\015\012and does not include drivers for the network adaptors, which can be obtained from the manufacturers web site, or the cd provided with the unit and properly installed, with luck.
