I'm having a tough time nailing down what sony means by 100% color saturation, in particular for the duraview monitor on the Z series.
Unfortunately way, way too many folks here have simply quoted the sony specs (without explanation) for search to be useful.
After reading through posts for a half hour the only explanation I've found is one poster stating that "100% saturation" means it covers 100% of the NTSC gamut. I can't find any specific information on either the US or Canadian site that corroborates this idea and it seems an odd standard to compare against when sRGB or aRGB would be a more familiar in the computer world. The only Sony model that comes close to an elaboration is the AW model "with Adobe RGB color management" which also seems an odd way to say that it covers adobe rgb gamut.
Does anyone have some specific information that they can kindly provide a link to? Or any review that has detailed information on the screen?
I have a sony vaio Sz691N laptop and got windows 7 64 bits installed. The high definition audio controller is always disabled after restarting. I have to go to device manager to enable it every time. it is annoying me. Has anyone had the same problem before and has a solution?
I have the following problem: Sony Vaio VGN-FW370J with Win Vista Home Premium 64 with Aptio Utility.
I do have realtek hd audio card and this card should have digital output. My gf has a toshiba satellite with the same card and she has it but I don't. I called sony and they replied (twice with different technicians) that this feature is not available on this model. Both audio cards have the same chip so I suspect that this feature is disabled hw.
It is not a driver problem. The driver does not install the Realtek Audio Manager so within the OS there is no way to enable it.
Colors are not correct on my Studio 1737 RGB LED, even after calibration with Spyder2Pro. Calibration adjusts the color temperature etc, so gray-scale images and documents are displayed correctly. But there is ridiculous over-saturation of colors. It just hurts my eyes.... Interesting thing though, inside ICM-aware applications (PhotoShop, LigthRoom) images are displayed correctly - just the image, program window itself and tools etc are over-saturated.
Several users had reported this problem in this forum, so it is known problem. Some were able to fix it with adjustment of saturation settings in ATI color control panel. Unfortunately, my notebook is equipped with Intel 4500 MHD integrated graphic card, and somehow saturation control is missing in "color Correction" tab of "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for mobile" .
I did set up Dual boot with Vista/XP and the problem is the same in XP. Futhermore, over-saturation it is noticeable even in BIOS and during Windows start up.
Is my LCD (RGB LED) panel faulty? Graphic card drivers are raw? Video-BIOS is messed up? I this fixable or not?
I spent couple hours on the phone with Dell Technician trying to solve this problem. No luck so far...
As of now, I am thinking of returning this laptop. Such color reproduction is just not acceptable, considering that I paid $250 for the RGB LED, expecting close-to-perfect colors.
I want to know if my laptop is capable of playing hd dvd's
I've recently bought a dell studio 15. It's got a tsstcorp dvd +-rw ts-t633a ata, Radeon hd3400 and high definition sound devices..... yet I tried to play a hd dvd and the dvd player just kept ejecting the dvd and couldn't play it.
For me, the issue is that sometimes on startup I get an error message that says the driver experienced an error and it closes and so I can't hear any audio out of my speakers until I restart. This happens randomly on some startups and today it happened when I opened iTunes for some reason.
I currently use driver version 6.10.6087.0 A which is what HP claims on their site is the latest version for my dv7t-1000.
I've read that some people use 6.10.6087.22.
And I just saw today that there is a 6.10.6087.60 C for the dv7t-2000.
My question is, can I use this new driver? How should I go about installing it?
Hopefully that works lol. I'll summarize in case it doesn't... or in case you don't want to read the whole thing. It's basically the typical, not-so-helpful, Microsoft Employee response... Nothing more needs to be said =P.
Basically... I upgraded to Windows 7 (64 bit, upgraded from Vista) on Tuesday. Started actually using my computer on Wednesday, and immediately noticed a lot of issues.
Biggest one was that Skype would freeze after using it for about 30 sec - 1 min. I would shut it down, restart the program, and it wouldn't start up (usually; if it would start up, it would freeze almost immediately after).
I eventually just ignored the issue, and continued using my computer. One time after this problem with Skype occurred, I tried to open Steam to try to play Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and steam wouldn't open .....
I have a Probook 4720s with Windows 7 Pro. Connecting my laptop to the TV with a HDMI cable worked fine then suddenly the next time I did this I had no sound and when I right click the sound Icon I noticed it read ATI High Definition Audio device not plugged in. It worked once and now it won't, I miss it. The driver is up to date.
I have an Inspiron 1720. When I purchased the laptop, it was on Windows Vista but with all of the head aches I've been getting while using Vista, I decided to switch back to XP. I got almost all drivers for my laptop except for the Modem Device on High Definition Audio Bus driver.
I am writing this new post after getting really frustrated from Googling all through the internet and not finding 1 decent solution.
I have a Dell Studio 1555 laptop and after bearing the pathetic sound quality both from the speakers and external speakers/headphones for months I finally decided to do something about it.
Apparently its not a hardware fault as everything seems to work technically fine but the sound output is really pathetic/high on treble and noise. Theres a word all around the internet that IDT High Definition Audio Codec sound drivers are bad idea and the default ones provided by Windows are much better.
Well i tried to remove, IDT Audio from my laptop permanently but to no avail. There is no option to remove at Add/Remove programs, so i went to Device manager and uninstalled the sound drivers. Upon restarting the PC the IDT audio popped backed in. So, I uninstalled once again and deleted the IDT folder but upon restarting it was back on again. Only that it took 5-6 minutes to install.
Can anyone suggest a way to remove IDT drivers permantly in Windows 7?
I ordered new E6500 that came with Vista on it and I wiped that and have installed XP Pro SP2 on the machine. I have followed the guide on this page and installed everything in the correct order. The only thing that didn't install was the dial-up modem. It errored out and said "No MODEM device was found". Typically on the Latitude laptops I seem to remember installing the modem driver and it taking care of this entry in the device manager, but not this time.
There is a dial-up modem on the laptop and this is the only device that looks to not be installed. There is no webcam, WAN modem, or anything else like that.
Has problem with installing XP onto a E6500? Is the installer for the modem driver just bad or is there possibly something else going on.
I have HP envy 15 j002er laptop. Originally I got it with Windows 8 but then I changed operation system to Windows 7 Pofessional (64-bit).I can`t install IDT high definition audio codec on it. I guess that is the reason why I don`t have and I can`t use Beats Audio interface on my laptop (only speakers are working). There are no audio drivers for Windows 7 available for download on HP website. When I`m cheking for driver updates via HP support, it proposes me only updates for Chipset, Graphics, Network, etc.And no Audio Driver..How can I solve it and install IDT high definition audio codec?
I've been looking at the VGN-FW460J/T at Fry's Electronics and I would to know if this is a good notebook? I really don't care about the new i7's that are coming out, because I planning to get one sometime next year when they reach at a least 2.0GHz and at an affordable cost.
I am in Shanghai and went to demo a new Vaio Z at a local SonyStyle store with a 3.06GHz CPU and Dual SSDs raided. The unit had Vista 64bit and 8GB of RAM... surprisingly though, no BluRay just a DVD Burner... go figure...
I tried to have someone explain to me if the design of the Z was changed because on my Z (model VGG-Z27GN) internally there is only space for one 2.5" drive (and nothing else really).
If the new Z's can accommodate 2 HDs inside, some major internal redesign had to be made. Does anyone know if this is the case or if maybe Sony is using some sort of two 1.8" Drives instead that they RAID together
