I have a laptop problem and it seems to be getting worse. I'm living in fear of complete failure.....
which will require a lot of time and money to fix.
I have a Sony VAIO VGN-S460P laptop. It has Windows XP Professional OS.
Whenever I leave it on and unused for a while, then return, the mouse if frozen. (At least using the laptop mouse... I'm not sure what would happen with an external mouse but I think the same.)
Sometimes it is completely frozen, and sometimes I can move it around a little, but it does not track to the right movements and it changes its shape to various things.
I have to shut down any apps using the keyboard, then shut down the computer. It is OK when I restart........... but just tonight for the first time it was not OK when I restarted.... so it seems to be getting even worse. (I shut down again and waited a while and it's OK now.) Also I think it is starting to happen after smaller amounts of time leaving it alone.
I did call Sony once about it but they were no help... I can try again but I think my warranty is up now.
Anybody know what might be happening?!?!?
