My Sony made VAIO VPCEG3WFX laptop runs slowly; windows task manager shows 50% CPU Usage, 2.5 GB RAM usage when nothing but the O/S is running. I have 4 MB RAM, have formatted the HD and reinstalled just Win 7 Home (no VAIO utilities) to assure nothing is running in the background.
Geek Squad tech support says because Sony doesn't offer driver updates (they're no longer making PCs), I have no solution but to buy a new PC
Has anyone experienced this problem? What was the repair for this?
I don't want to give up on this laptop, it's only 3 yrs old.
How did you reinstall Windows Win 7 Home? Did you use the recovery disc for the unit? It is necessary to install the drivers and software (Vaio Care and other software utilities) for your laptop after reinstalling the OS. Every hardware needs a driver/software to run properly.
