Sony :: Can't Extract Drivers With Universal Extractor V1.6
When I try to extract Sony Notebook Utilities, BIOS update, and other things, this stupid error keeps popping up.
Can anyone be kind enough to download the drivers, extract them, and reupload them for me? I have tried all of the extract options and none of them work.

Sony :: Vaio, Vista, And The Universal Extractor
I keep getting a message stating that any updates for my drivers on a VGN - C25G are not intended for use with my model (all details are correct). So, I need to resort to the universal extractor to get my FN keys, Camera and Bluetooth working on this vaio...
I have never used the universal extractor before, and am uncertain where i would need to place the extracted files once the UE has finished
Sony :: Kensington Universal Power Supply & VGN-SR Series
Anyone use one of Kensington's universal power supplies with their VGN-SR? Trying to figure out which "smart tip" to use.
Their compatibility wizard on the Kensington website doesn't list the VGN-SR290; only lists a Vaio SR series. I think this may be referring to an older series and not the VGN-SR line. The tip the wizard recommends for this 'Vaio SR series" is N15, which, according to the power supply instrcution manual has output volatge of 15-17V. Another tip, tip N27, has output volatge of 17-20V. The power brick that came with my SR290 indicates a 19.5V output (Sony VGP-AC19V25 - 19.5V, 4.7a)
Sony :: 's ATI Drivers
My recently new purchased FW 490 JFT comes with ATI's Mobility 4650 1GB GPU.
I installed all the "latest" drivers from Sony however the ATI drivers they offer are version 8.5. The latest drivers out on ATI's website are now 9.7
Will Sony ever update their drivers? How can I get this card updated to the newest drivers? I already tried Mobility Modder and they don't support 4650 series..
Sony :: VAIO- Can't Install Drivers
My problem is that I bought a VAIO laptop (VGN-FW31M) and it came with windows vista. So I formated it and installed Windows XP PRO SP∑3.
(I had the common SATA driver problem but I managed to solve it).
The problem comes when I try to install any driver, even the CHIPSET driver.
I get a message saying:
"This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software. Setup will exit"
I got all the drivers from the sony official site.
Acer :: [Timeline] How To Extract A Bootable Vista DVD
I have an Acer Timeline 4810TZ. With Windows XP you were (usually) able to just take the "i386" folder which most companies put on the laptop's drive and use that to produce a full bootable Windows XP CD that you could use to completely reformat the drive with the Windows license key that came with your laptop.
Is this possible with Vista? More specifically, is this possible with the way Acer sets up their laptop?
I know I can use their erecovery tools, but I'd rather setup my own partition structure.
I have already backed up all the files in the secret partition and do know how to recover it even if I delete the hidden partition so another option is to just delete it and then combine the partition with the other one and then repartition the drive. All this should be doable with gparted (or a bunch of other programs) and shouldn't harm my files, but it seems like a dumb roundabout way to go about it if I can produce a Vista DVD.

Dell :: Universal Power Supply
So i have a new e6400 moved from an e4200. Figured I could use the nice dell travel adapter I had with my 4200. Once i plugged it into my new beast i got a not enough wattage message from DCP.
Which is fine, I now realize that my nice slim power adapter is very much under powered for this laptop.
I went out and got a Cooler Master SNA 95 it is a 95 watt adaptor and acutally is really small and light. Got it home and plugged it in and I got this message .....
Dell :: XPS 1530 IR / Universal Remote
I want to use a Universal Remote to control my Dell laptop and my TV in one and since I have a XPS M1530 and one of those media control remotes, I figure I had 3 options:
1 Find a remote that my computer recognizes and/or figure out what buttons do what and pray it works.
2 Find out how to get my computer's IR to recognize a remote and then write drivers or something to do the rest.
3 Purchase IR sensor bar or something and do it that way.
HP/Compaq :: HP Power Adapter.. Are They Universal For Almost Alllaptops
I am trying to find a power adapter for my HP dock XB3000, however, everywhere I look, the power adapter seem to be the same. My laptop uses the newer smart pin connection, however the dock uses a smaller plug. When I look on ebay, I see they list practically all hp laptops to be compatable with their power adapters. I was just wondering if the power adapters are practically universal, other than the difference between the 65W and the 90W adapters.
Sony :: Laptops' 'Silent Mode' SR590
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.
Dell :: Studio 1735 ..guess There's No XP Drivers For It
New owner of a Dell Studio 1735 that came loaded with ( of course) WIndows Vista. I was told by the rep at Dell that sold it to me " oh yeah, you can get the XP drivers for it".....yeah right!!
I was able to create a slipstream Windows XP install CD that loads SP2 files and the SATA HDD drivers to avoid the BSOD that I got initially in trying to load XP..so far so good I thought.
Ran Vistaboot to dual boot but that corrupts the NTLDR and I cannot dual boot into anyting but VISTA as I get the message statingthe NTLDR is either missing or corrupted . If I run a repair and then type FIXBOOT , I can then get back into XP.., but of course..., no longer can boot into VISTA ( no big loss but it would have been nice ) and only have XP.
I cannot find the XP drivers for audio , video ( ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 ) or wireless and an UNKNOWN DEVICE. I've looked and looked,but incredibly there seems to be no XP drivers for these devices.
I just feel that Dell has the XP drivers for these devices but somehow is just not releasing them. It's really unfair to be "locked" into one OS ( which , by the way...sucks!) and feel like a idiot for believing the sales rep.

Dell :: Drivers From Laptopvideo2go Don't Work- BSOD
I just bought Bioshock and tried to update the drivers. I read about some guys updating using these drivers, but I just have no luck.
Dell Inspiron e1705
oc'ed to 600/1200
I have tried in the past to install the files and always get the BSOD (nv4_disp error). I have tried all kinds of installation methods (driver cleaner, safe mode, etc.). Here is the most recent attempt:
1. Return clock speeds to factory original (don't know if this is necessary)
2. Start in safe mode
3. Remove drivers (driver cleaner + another program just to make sure)
5. Download 163.44 from here and modded inf.
6. Extract file to folder on desktop
7. Drag modded inf into folder
8. Click on the setup.exe and restart when complete
Now I either get the BSOD or my screen runs at 600x480 or whatever and 4-bit (which I can't change)
Acer :: Win XP Can't Recongnize Drivers On Aspire 9410z
I bought an Aspire 9410z notebook a month ago. It had Vista installed on it by deafult. Now, for reasons too many to list, I didn't like vista.
I created an additional partition and run linux on it. Linux was fine but I needed something for my gaming purposes, so I replaced linux with win XP.
Now the problem is, windows xp cannot reconglize the drivers on my laptop (ethernet, wifi, videocard, orbicam, etc.)
As a result I can't connect to the Internet or do anything productive for that matter.
Tried to look for drivers I can download from the Internet, but no luck.

Sony :: Beep Sound At Start Up And Key 'p' Is Not Working
While starting the notebook, it beeps, (short toned but continuous) and pressing Alt / Ctrl or function keys stops that noise , then system getting booted. In the login screen, in the password field automatically populated with "*" and entering correct password get into a windows.
Every key is working except 'p' and this sometimes works. But to my wonder, this key automatically getting typed in text areas frequently. it continuously prints that key whenever focus goes on the text area.
Sony :: Can't Restore The System, Even With Restoration CD's- Vaio VGN-CR120E, Vista 32-bit
My mother's laptop had some issues, so I decided to completely restore the system. Restoration went through, however when it booted for the first time after restore, it gave me an error message that some file is missing or corrupted. I did second restoration...same problem but different file, tried 3rd time....same problems and different file.
I decided to do restoration without "value added" stuff, it went through, booted fine into windows vista, went through all the vista configurations, booted into Desktop. Desktop was all black, and right away I got the error message, something to do with "hardware shell".
Did hadware test - everything is fine.
Finally, I ordered restoration CDs directly from SONY.
First try using Sony's own CDs - error, file is missing or corrupted.2nd Try - same thing, 3rd try - same thing.
And finally, after multiple tries, it boots into Vista Green Background with small rotating circle (Vista's HourGlass). Nothing happens afterward.
It is Vaio VGN-CR120E, Vista 32-bit
Sony :: ITunes Isn't Burning My CD's Correctly
I know iTunes is full of bugs and I'm really starting to get annoyed but this maybe the straw that puts me over the edge to finding an alternative. I've tried 2 different brands of CD's and even one that was a friggin "Sony CD-R". Still when iTunes burns my disks it'll finish like normal and mount the finished product in the sidebar, and upon first inspection it looks fine but when I play through the CD all the ends of my songs are cut off and some skip and then some are just plain not there (towards the end of the disk).
I've looked at the individual song properties and none of them specify a start or end time and I'm at a loss as to what to do. I know CD's aren't expensive but when I only burn like 1-2 a month, and I buy a five pack and it messes them all up that's money I'm just "burning" (pun intended). Could it be a problem with the buffer under-run? In that case it's HW and I'd need to RMA it to Sony... or is there some special tool I can use to see if I can calibrate the drive or something? the drive in QTS is an Optiarc BD-ROM BC-5500S4 with the released firmware update.
Acer :: Freezing - Tried To Install My Original Drivers And They Won't Install
I have had an aspire 5920g for about 18 months now and it was all working fine until I updated the graphic drivers, but the drivers stopped installing halfway through and now I can't install any graphic drivers.
I tried to install my original drivers and they won't install. The system keeps freezing and I think thats the problem.
I've tried making a recovery disc but erecovery won't recognize blank DVD's and acer 'support' are only too happy to grab you by your feet, turn you upside down and let all your money fall out so they can charge you for a reovery disc - absolutely ridiculous - instead of actually trying to help me.
And also for some reason a yellow triangle appeared next to the ACEYTS4Y IDE controller a week after I got it but up until now didn't seem to cause any problems.
Sony :: 'Downgrade' From Vista To XP
trying to "Downgrade" my Laptop from Vista to XP, I have a legal copy of XP and when I boot from disk it wont install it just says that it cannot find a HD to install to. I downloaded a copy of XP to see if my disc was just broken or something and it let me format my HD and install XP, the only problem i have with that is i wont be able to perform updates and i only have a small screen in the middle of my display (i assume this is because some drivers are missing) also i cant connect to the internet because there are drivers missing. I have been on the sony website and downloaded some but they dont work, i think its because there designed for Vista.
So my question is this, does anyone know how I can get my LEGAL copy of XP to install and also does anyone know where I can get compatible drivers for it? My Laptop is VGN-NR38E/S.
Sony :: 'mushy' Z Keyboard
I have to an extent with both the Z9 and X9 at the moment - although probably more with the X - but there's sometimes a sort of sticky 'clicking' when the keys are depressed which leads me to believe that some of the domes are not seated correctly. I have no idea how the domes are arranged for the Z11 - I'm presuming due to weight reasons it won't be a monolithic sheet, but a separate dome per key - but it is definitely happening on more than one key. Rapid typing doesn't seem to be an issue, but the audible feedback causes me to slow down typing.
I'm weighing up the pros and cons of returning the machines for replacements.

Sony :: What Will Be With Drivers When Windows 7 Will Be Available
I am wondering what will be with drivers when Windows 7 will be available. Now when I go to Sony website and try download drivers and utilities factory installed with my Vaio TT21 XN/B it is not available. Only one way of reinstallation is recovery partition (or DVD's) or semi clean install. But question is how to install Windows 7 when it will be available without drivers? When Microsoft will lunch W7 I am going to upgrade but how I will can do that?
Sony :: FW139E Drivers
My computer froze recently and something failed on windows so I decided to reload Vista again. Unfortunately, I didn't have the recovery discs on me so I bought a copy of Vista Ultimate from my university. After installing though, none of my shortcut or "FN" buttons work and the wireless doesn't work either. The esupport website doesn't have any drivers available and the only option I have is to buy the discs from Sony directly. Does anybody know how I can the drivers? Can I download a different set of drivers from FW with vista ultimate?

I've used linux on my vaio vgn-485b but now I need to get back to win and I've installed it on partition. the problem now is that when I try to install the drivers (starting with the Bios files, sony shared library etc..) I've got weird messages like 'impossible to read the data system' or 'shared libary not installed' when I try to install the shared library... unfortunately I don't have the recovery dvd. so what can I do?
Sony :: Drivers For Japanese Z
I wanted to reinstall my VGN-Z90US, so as for preparation I was planning to download latest drivers, as it's easily possible from the US page. But what a surprice, on the Japanese page it's written that it's not possible and I'll find the drivers on recovery discs and C:WindowsDrivers only...which are outdated of course.
So the question is, does anybody know the source for latest drivers for Japanese Z...FTP or anything? Or should I try to use the ones from US site?
Sony :: Drivers- FW490
I just ran PCPitstop on my FW490 (running Vista Home Premium 64 bit), and the Driver recommendations report listed two drivers which they suggest changing:
1) Realtek High Definition Audio current driver is 184.108.40.20659 , to proposed driver 220.127.116.1188.
2) Marvell Yukon 88E8055 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller current driver is 10.53.2.3 to proposed driver 10.70.6.3.
The recommended drivers do not appear on the Sony eSupport site for my specific model (VGN-FW490CJ).
Should I leave well enough alone, or is Sony not posting the most current drivers for my Vaio.
Sony :: Should I Be Using New Drivers For More Vaio Z
I have a Vaio Z690 and am using the default 174.49 Nvidia drivers which sony provides. What I am wondering is if there is a better driver I should be using then this one. I have read My discoveries on Vaio Zís Hybrid Graphics although could someone point me in the right direction of which driver I should be using, that has been verified that will still allow me to keep all the features such as the stamina vs speed mode switch, shortcut buttons, etc with everything working 100%.
