  1. I am having WiFi problems after upgrading to Windows 8.1 and suggestions are to replace the WiFi card. Do you have vendor for the mesh screen which is taking off as everyone says once taken off that it is unusable. I called Sony and they really don’t help at all since they now don’t sell PCs anymore. I have a USB WiFi installed now which is OK, but PC won’t go into sleep mode at all. I don’t really want to take apart the PC if this won’t be easy fix. Thanks!
