    Things aren't going so smoothly for me!!

    I'm informed the download has been finished and a window opened stating 'Preparing for installation' and there it stays for 8 hours. I have to 'hard' switch off and the download process starts over!

    I believe there have been more than 5 attempts, none have succeeded!

    Any suggestions please :)

    Hi, I have an interesting problem.
    My sony vaio duo 13 doesnot charge.
    When I turn off and do a battery reset by the little hole, it goes back to charging again...
    If the computer goes to sleep this happens, if not, you can put the charger back and it will charge normally.
    It is running win 8.1 with all updates...
    BIOS is also updated to latest version.
    I did a complete factory reset from win 8, etc, nothing changed.
    Any suggestions? Its almost useless like this. It's still 100% functional, the battery works too, and it still holds almost all of its charge but it is a weird situation.
    I am not sure how I can contact the sony support, I bought it on eBay, the guy brought it from USA and the device is in Belgium.
    Thanks for any help.

    Perhaps it is a problem caused by the computer going to sleep. You can prevent that (sleeping) by using a very simple program called "mousejiggle".

    I had a few problems with the computer sleeping (though it would still charge) myself before I upgraded to Win 10. It would still go to sleep even if I had the settings to "never".

    I've successfully upgraded to Windows 10 - had to disable Superantispyware!

    The only issue I have now is that all video playback, Youtube etc is fine on left side of video window but streaky/stretched on the right half of the window.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    John

    So I was just wondering if anyone with a SVD1322 series model updated to windows 10 and successfully installed the drivers Sony provided for the SVD1323 series. It looks like the hardware between the 2 model types is exactly the same yet Sony won't release updated drivers for the former. I have a SVD132290X specifically.

    Has anyone ever dissembled this notebook?

    My notebook doesn't have cellular, but I wonder if it's doable to install it.

    Has anyone changed the battery on this? Is it safe to do? I'm thinking about replacing the battery. That, or figure out why my battery capacity has been at least halved since I bought the computer, even though I've only got 16% battery wear. Anyone have any ideas? Maybe it has to do with the computer being made with Windows 8 and I'm on Windows 10 (which runs beautifully)?
