Sony :: Why It Disabled Intel VT In VAIO Laptops

Aug 15, 2009

Sony VAIO product manager, Xavier Lauwaert, addressed the issue on the Windows Partner blog. His post [answers] to a specific comment about the lack of VT capability provides an astonishing explanation and fix roadmap:

It's great that Sony are "looking forward to leveraging [Windows 7] on their platforms." However some of their recent laptops are unable to leverage all the features of Windows 7.

Sony's decision to disable Virtualization Technology on the Intel chips on their high-end notebooks makes little sense when you consider that these machines are targeted at business consumers. It was also annoying to find this out _after_ I had bought the machine, since none of the pre-sales literature mentioned it.

Even more so when you realise that Windows 7 will include a virtual Windows XP installation to provide backwards compatibility. This will run with impaired performance on any Sony laptop where VT has been disabled. I would be interested to know what the Windows 7 team think about Sony crippling their customerís ability to use their carefully constructed backwards compatibility feature?..........

Dell :: 2008 Laptops With Nvidia Dropping Like Flies

Apr 7, 2010

I have one of the Latitude D630 laptops with the bad Nvidia integrated graphics purchased in January of 2008. Does anyone have a solution for this problem other than giving Dell $400 to fix a two year old laptop that will probably just fail again? No one is responding to the Dell blog http://en.community.dell.com/dell-bl...t-details.aspx . Dell knew they had a problem when they sold me this laptop which is discouraging to say the least. So now what am I supposed to do? Dell was the only vendor I trusted. Has anyone had to deal with this problem and what did you do to fix it? I am stuck in nv4_disp.dll infinite loop hell...

Yes, the graphics chip is toast at this point. Please do not ask me to update the bios or instal latest drivers as this only prolongs the inevitable, complete failure. Is there anyone out there that upgrades these by sodering on a different chip or something?

Sony :: Vaio + NVIDIA + Windows 7

Apr 21, 2010

I own a Sony Vaio Laptop, VGN-FZ21M. This laptop comes with a NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT GPU Graphics card.

Originally, the laptop came with Windows Vista. I had no problems there. Once Windows 7 came out, I upgraded. Problems started there, with Windows not recognizing my video card correctly. It was displayed not as NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT, but as a Standard VGA Graphic Adapter.

At the time, the problem was more or less easily solved. I downloaded the drivers from NVIDIA, but I wasn't able to do a direct install (an error would occur). So I updated the Graphic card manually, by browsing the disk and chosing the nvmt.inf file that came within the drivers given by NVIDIA on their website, as the file to update my Graphic card with.

This worked out perfectly. My Graphic card was updated and working as great as ever.

However, more recently, I decided to format my laptop, and give it a clean Windows 7 install. I did this because my laptop was giving some graphical weirdies. I thought a format would solve it. It didn't.................

Sony :: Nvidia GT430M On VAIO Z Refresh

May 1, 2010

Will the new Z refresh ever get GT430M? The desktop version of Nvidia 4xx has already been released. I think it won't be long for the mobile version to be released.

I am planning to get a new laptop around August or September but I don't mind waiting for a couple of months if I can get GT430M. However, if the GPU will never get an update, I think I'll buy the Z earlier since I don't think there will be much of an update before August. From what I see on the old Z, the GPU never got updated. However this time the GPU on Z is a little behind with no DirectX 11 support.

Sony :: Vaio Z-series NVidia Card

Jan 10, 2009

I've been eyeing a Vaio Z-series (555 or the the 590 online-only in Canada) but I want to make absolutely sure that it contains a nVidia card (9300M GS 256MB).

When I go to the stores to look at the store model (Sony store & Best Buy), in Device Manager and Display setting, I only see the Intel Mobile graphics chips. No where on the system does it appear to say that it contains a nVidia card. I tried using the Stamina/Speed slider to see if there was a different (setting it to Speed), and the graphics card still says INTEL.

For all those who own a laptop from this series, what do you see?

Do *all* Vaio Z-series have a nVidia or only certain ones? Is it just a driver/software issue for the ones at the stores?

Sony :: Repaired VAIO Nvidia Video

May 26, 2010

I have a VAIO SZ series laptop which got the typical video isue with Nvidia GPU (vertical lines). I was very disaponted from what I read and from the 750-1000 Euro repair cost that sony Greece (I live in Greece) offered me so I started looking for a motherboard on ebay. I was very lucky and surprised to find a company offering a repair service for my laptop located in Greece. I bought the service for 200Euro I packed the laptop and send them my pick up info.

Next day a courier picked up my laptop and 10 days later it was returned fully functional and they even solved the problem with the noisy fan! This happened one week ago and today they even refunded 50Euro of my payment because I am located in Greece and the offered price was calculated for shipping in EU! So it actually costed me only 150Euro in total!

Checing their listing I show that they are offering repair services for FZ series laptops for much less but they are asking to send them only half of the laptop. Anyway I prefer not to mention the company's name but if you check on ebay.co.uk for VAIO SZ video repair you should find them and maybe more proffesionals closer to you who could repair your laptop for a fruction of what sony is asking.

Sony :: Vaio VGN-SZ780 NVidia 8400M GPU Failure

Aug 15, 2009

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ780 that passed its 1 year warranty a few months ago.

My laptop was experiencing overheating and would either reboot suddenly after the blue screen of death or would just shut down in the middle when using the nvidia 8400 GPU.

From Sony's explanation, I read that the shutdown of the system is a normal behavior under high temperature and I assumed it was not a problem and just an inconvenience.

Just 30 minutes ago, my laptop screen turn white completely and froze so I shut down the system immediately and since then, my SZ780 DOES NOT BOOT when using the Nvidia GPU!

Sony's recent replacement annoucement of defective Nvidia GPUs EXCLUDE the SZ models so for me, I have no additional warranty that can cover this.

Sony :: Vaio VPCZ11Z9E Nvidia Drivers Slows Down

May 6, 2010

My question:

What i have;
I have, as the title sais, a Vaio VPCZ11Z9E with the hybrid graphic system. The drivers i use are the latest ones published by Sony.

The problem;
When i have my computer on stamina mode ie. not using the nvidia geforce card and i right click my desktop to reach the meny for personalize, create new folders etc the meny shows up instantly, no delay at all.

When i have the switch to speed, using my nvidia geforce card(which always use while at work and plugged in) the right click on desktop has delay/lag to show the meny, the windows 7 thinking animation shows up, for up to 3 seconds before it actually pops up.

My conclusion is of course, that it has to do withe nevidia card/drivers.

Are there any solution to this? Does anyone else have the problem? Should i do a total reset with the recovery tool?

Sony :: Brightness Control And NVIDIA Driver Updates For XP Downgrade VAIO

Jul 22, 2009

One of the most troublesome consequences of downgrading your VAIO to Windows XP is not being able to adjust the screen brightness using the F5/F6 keys.

This tutorial aims to (i) resolve that issue, and (ii) retain the ability to adjust brightness when you update to the latest LaptopVideo2Go drivers. The below methods have been tested on VAIO FZ, FW, and NS laptops with NVIDIA GeForce 8X00M cards, and they are working flawlessly with the LV2G 190.15 driver.

Part 1: Enabling Fn Brightness Control

Skip this step if your brightness control is already working

In order to be able to use the brightness control on a XP-Downgraded machine, you need:

1. VAIO Event Service Hotfix (Which updates the VESConfig.ini file for the VAIO Event Service)
-> You can get this at[url].
-> If you have an FZ, you can use the VESConfig.ini I have attached

2. NVIDIA Driver with Customised nv4_disp.inf (Refer to Part 2)............

Sony :: S And SR Laptops

Mar 31, 2010

so it looks like the SR has been discontinued and there is a Best Buy exclusive called the S. Is the S or another similar model going to be available through the Sony site and if so when? I called them in January and they said the S would be available shortly but I've only seen it through best buy. I ask because I'd like to custom order the specs through sony and also get a different color.

Sony :: Laptops' 'Silent Mode' SR590

Jan 2, 2010

I recently purchased a Sony SR590, and while I love it, I'm personally VERY susceptible to fan noise.. thus I find problems with being able to hear the fan run constantly. The fan seems to turn on, as soon as I open skype and windows media player...

I recently discovered Sony's 'silent mode' function.. and it seems to cut the fan noise level down. What's the difference between performance mode and silent mode? Do you suppose it's alright for me to keep on silent mode, for my state of sanity (literally)?

From time to time, I run Lightroom CS2, which seems to be my most CPU intensive program... otherwise I usually just have a few internet tabs open, windows media player, and a few chat windows.

Sony :: Are Bags With Magnetic Flaps Dangerous For Laptops
