alanhates0870 1 2 3 vgn-sz71vn/x Vista Currently occurring once a day or two, clears on reboot. When this occurs, mouse button requires very strong pressure to work Sent email to Sony, received response that if running in Safe mode doesn't work, they will fix the laptop, but that I have to phone the 0870 number… After a few days of no improvement, I phoned, they picked up the laptop and fixed it in 2 working days. This was two weeks ago, and so far so good. I'm still not sure what they have fixed, as the repair report didn't provide details.
