SONY VAIO GVN-I problem

Window 7 ultimate


hi need help,
SONY VAIO GVN-I recenty updated my lap top to Window 7 32 bit updated the BIOS and updated drivers. my lap top does not turn on when I shut it down and let it rest for a long period, it is like it gets lost in the lupe. It turns on when i power it down then power up i again, and windows starts fine. However when it about to go into sleep mode it says windows recoverd from an unexpected shutdown.... sometime it goes into a loop from power off and powering on . I spoke to a sony represetative and from remote access he made sure y drivers were updated. I have done some reading and it looks like it might be a driver issue ... i want to find out what is causing my pc to turn off while it powered on and what is stopping it from starting when i press the on button.S360

Video driver and many old drivers.

1-remove and replace video driver
When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.


2-update drivers list


How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Your Sony rep told you a fib... look at the dates on those drivers ... some go back to 2003... check this page and see if you can identify them .... Driver Reference
