Today I found a great source with service manuals for Sony Vaio VGN series laptops and notebooks. Links to the service manuals were posted on one of the Russian forums (comment 13). Not sure for how long these service manuals will be available for downloads but they are the time of wringing this post. Some files are large and it might take some time to download them, so be patient.

All service manuals are in PDF format and you can download them using below mentioned links.

    Many problems with my Sony vaio
    VGN- S5M / S
    I know it dates .
    It heats , burns , and the fan makes a lot of noise for about a year .
    The spring and summer I have to put a real fan nearby, not one of these little ventilos office made ​​in China , not a true ultra powerful air blower brewer . There , no more problem . But it is spring and it is not yet warm enough for the presence of this ceiling fan is bearable because there is me turns me off . ( ! !)
    So I’ll change the model , but I certainly do not redeem sony .
    More I opted for Norton360 first edition pftttttttt it starts at any time in the background and pump the ram while aggravating overheating.
    Norton is crap.
    Sony crap.
    Microsoft Windows : scammers with their requests for updates untimely day.
    Bing hotmail shit it is even difficult to remove .
    Here is my humble testimony.

    @ robert,
    This could be driver related issue. If you hear Windows sound at boot up, your laptop hardware works properly.

    have a vaio fj-170, sound does not work. At first crackly sound suggesting loose contact, now nothing (except windows sound at boot up is normal). Where could there possibly be a loose wire etc. Looked at dis-assembly pdf, but unable to find sound card wire etc., if it’s there somewhere.

    Any suggestions???

    @ zahid khan,
    Sounds like a possible motherboard failure.
    If you need to access data, you can remove the hard drive and connect it to another working computer using an external USB enclosure as I explained in this post.

    @ Lida,

    There is no easy way to troubleshoot problems like that over the internet. Go to the control panel and check sound settings. Make sure the microphone is enabled, not muted.

    Can you please help me? I have a Sony Vaio Laptop VGN-AR 630E model with Integrated 1.3 megapixel digital camera and microphone. When I’m on SKYPE and talking on Skype video, I can see & hear the person on the other end, and the person can see me, but NOT HEAR me. I know this is on my end because all of my friends have no problem with their contacts. I’m trying all of kind troubleshooting situations, but nothing is working. For a several years I never had any this kind of problem. This started about one or two month ago. I lose hope that I ever find a solution. Looking for some answer! Thanks! Lida
