    Screen definitely is, the 1080p is gorgeous.

    BD is not. It will not add more to the 2 year second hand price than it costs (thought that would be obvious) so you are wasting money on it.

    I agree, 1080p is definitely worth it... bluray is a waste.

    Hey guys!
    When running my laptop on battery, when winows 7 loads it uses about 15% of my battery. I left the notebook with about 35% battery on and didin't used it for abuot one month. Could this be the problem for it to eat up so much battery when starting? Can i fix this somehow?
    My vaio is EB2S1E.
    Thank you!

    Calibrate laptop Battery

    You could try calibrating your laptop battery to fix the problem. You could also disable startup programs and services that may be running your battery low...

    make sure you use "power save" by clicking the battery and selecting it from the power options. When unplugged this will really help.

    Turn screen brightness down, especially when you aren't at the computer. Your monitor uses up your battery a ton.

    Hi Friends,

    I bought my Sony Vaio few days back.

    VPCEB390X - Black
    Intel® Core™ i5-580M processor (2.66GHz) with Turbo Boost up to 3.33GHz
    4GB (2GBx2) DDR3-SDRAM-1066
    ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 GPU (1GB VRAM)
    15.5" Full HD VAIO Premium Display (1920x1080)


    Unfortunately I broke the display :( . The laptop was lying with screen lid closed and I placed my elbow on it by mistake.
    It was just a fraction of second before I realized and pulled my elbow back but there are cracks in the display.
    The laptop works normally and I can see the display. The outer glass screen is fine but I can see some cracks in the display inside.

    Please advise me from where to repair it and the cost involved. :confused:


    Thanks,
    JASS

    I broke my 900p screen within the first week (actually someone else did) and it was 600 dollars =\

    edit: Call sony's support. I took mine to a store.

    Can someone tell me how to access the BIOS and change C3/C6 option? I tried pressing F8 on startup and arrived at a menu, but I couldn't find any option of C3/C6 there.

    By the way, I have the latest BIOS update already installed.

    Though I don't have much of a noise problem, but lately my laptop has been acting crazy, the CPU doesn't run at full speed. When I start the laptop it's fine but as soon as I run any game, it drops instantly to 934~MHz. Yes, it always falls to around this number, and obviously the game runs very slow (GTA IV in this case).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I have the C3/6 option in my bios and I've got the latest one.

    If your laptop is clocking that low there's a problem... mine won't go that low on powersave with no programs running.

    The BIOS key is F2. F8 is the recovery menu.

    Does anyone know if the EB fits in the SwissGear Maxxum bag?
