Sony :: Vaio SR190 Windows 7 Install

Aug 14, 2009

I know that we really don't need to have a million threads on the subject, but I haven't seen many SR tutorials. If this stays open, maybe it will help other older SR owners when they upgrade to Windows 7.

What you need before you do your upgrade:

Firmware Extension parser

Sony Shared Library

Sony Notebook Utilities

Optional items:

Webcam software

Synaptics Touchpad drivers

Fingerprint Scanner driver

I installed Win7 Pro as a clean install. I have a 320gb drive that I formatted and partitioned into 3 parts, 40gb for the OS, 5gb for the pagefile and the rest for a storage partition.

I use the storage drive to put all of my user-created files. That make it easier for me to locate an item and makes backing up my personal files alot easier. I think it also reduces fragmentation on your OS drive...........

Sony :: Vaio Fz260 Windows 7 Clean Install

Dec 11, 2009

I have been trying to make a clean install of Windows 7 but when I get to the install screen,

it says that "it does not recognize my drive." This happened too when I tried to install windows XP,

and I solved it by slipstreaming the SATA controller drivers but, I don't know where to find those for windows 7, or if that even will solve the same problem

Sony :: Windows 7 Clean Instructions Install On VAIO E-Series

Apr 21, 2010

I was searching for a Thread that has some data about clean instructions and restoring all functions for the VAIO E-Series, but I didn't find one.

And since there is a lot of users here who own the VAIO E-Series, I think it might be useful.

So, can anyone share his experience with a clean install on the VAIO E-Series and how did you do that?

Some special order in installing drivers? What's about the FN-Buttons? Whats about the Assist and WEB Buttons? Are they all working?

Feb 14, 2010

i just reinstalled winxp sp3 on a sony s3xp, i don't have the vaio installation cd but i did a clean reinstall of windows xp and installed essential drivers but it was quite slow, eg seconds to load a directory, or long pauses during web browsing

now i've installed all the original drivers and utilities and am running without power saving but it's still sluggish, eg the mouse pointer jumps about the screen rather than moves continuously when the cpu is under any load at all

Sony :: VAIO- Can't Install Drivers

Aug 21, 2009

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 SPĚ3.

(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.

Sony :: VAIO Memory Install

Jan 12, 2009

family member install some additional memory in her Sony VAIO laptop, but seem to be having a problem. Its a VGN-C290 model (May 2007) and currently has one 1GB chip installed & has one open slot. It allows a max of 2GB.

Now, I have purchased an additional 1GB chip from Crucial.com, but after installing it in the one open slot, it appears that it is not recognizing it at all. The laptop will turn on, but doesn't get to the XP screen. Not even the Sony VAIO/Phoenix welcome screen either.

I have never had a problem with Crucial memory, but I contacted them directly to maybe help with this problem. They basically told me to make sure it is really seated in there good and apply a lot of pressure. They also had me put the Crucial memory in the slot #1 where the original Sony memory was. Neither worked.

The only other thing they suggested was that it was a BIOS related issue & to somehow update the BIOS. I checked & it currently is running BIOS version #R0080J4. I'm trying to determine if this is the latest version. If not, then how to update it.

Sep 4, 2009

Just had a hard drive failure on my VGN-BX195ep lapton, I bought a new hard drive, but when installing one of my recovery discs (application disc) is not recognised.

I have a new Vista Home Premium here unsed, so thought I would try that. It installs fine, but I am really struggling to get the Sony Drivers to make it work.

I am without Wireless Lan, Flash drives and also have ? makrs on device manager on Biometric processor (fingerprint I guess) Mass Storage Controller, and two unknow devices which are listed as Intel 82891FBM LPC INt Controllers.

I have spoken to Sony support who claim the original installed drivers should work, but they they have errors on intall due to wrong operating system.

where I can find drivers?

why the Wireless lan does not work as it seems fine in the device manager? But when turned on, apart from the light on the front it is not working?

Sony :: Vaio CS Win7 RTM X64 Clean Install

Sep 27, 2009

I have a Vaio VGN-CS16G/R and why is is that after installing Win7 RTM x64 and installing the necessary drivers, I DON'T see the "adjust brightness slider" on the power options? With my other laptops with the same OS, I can see that slider completely.

Also, I when I install Vaio Launcher which I got from the extracted Sony Notebook Utilities installer, it returns an error of:

" Error Number: 0x80040703
Description: Failed to find DLL function: SnyUtils.SuOpen

Setup will now terminate. "

Are there workarounds on this?

Sony :: Vaio FW- To Install Newest GPU Drivers

May 1, 2009

I just bought a new sony vaio laptop. I wanted to install the newest 9.4 ATI drivers for the gpu. So heres what happened:

- Downloaded newest drivers from ati official site
- Went to the uninstall programs section in control panel, closes thing I could find to ati drivers was "Ati catalyst install manager", so i uninstalled it and it uninstalled ati drivers within the process.
- Then restarted the laptop
- Then installed newest drivers with the catalyst control center.
- Restarted laptop
- After the restart the highest available resolution was 1400x1050, I couldn't find the ati control centre and can find no evidence of the laptop even recognizing the ATI GPU after the restart.

I've gone through this sequence twice now and each time the drivers haven't been updated properly and the same thing has happened.

I've restored the system so now I have the 8.4 drivers on my gpu but I really can't figure out how to update them,

Sony vaio
-2.66GHz core 2 duo
-Ati HD 3650 512mb GDDR3
-4GB DDR2RAM
-Vista 64-bit
-320GB HDD
-1920x1080 Full HD display

Sony :: How To Do A Vista X64 Clean Install On The Vaio Z

Mar 16, 2009

I have a Japanese VGN-Z90NS, and after getting it back from Japan for a minor repair, decided to put Vista Ultimate x64 on there to take advantage of my entire amount of memory.

Some may have seen this thread:
Sony Z HD install and 64bit upgrade problems

On at least the older Vaio Z series (the Z90, Z5xx in the USA, etc.), I have confirmed that the EFI thing is an issue if you try to install a slipstreamed SP1. I happen to have a genuine Vista Ultimate x64 install disc that is RTM, and it installed just fine with no EFI issues.

To get the 64-bit original Sony drivers, download them here or here.

Once you download all of the Sony drivers, download Universal extractor from here, and run it against all of the EXEs you downloaded to strip the model check.

To get the Intel 4500 graphics driver, download it here

NOTE: My Z does not have the built-in camera or fingerprint security, so you'll have to figure that out on your own. Somehow my notebook no longer has bluetooth after being fixed (looking into that ...), so that isn't in this list either. I do have one device that I can't find a driver for, and I bet it's bluetooth since everything else is fine. I'll update if I sort it all out.

Install Process that works:
1. Vista x64
2. Vista x64 service pack (if needed)
3. Intel chipset driver - reboot required
4. Intel Matrix Storage Manager (I have the RAIDed SSDs and definitely need this) - reboot required.......................

Sony :: ATI Catalyst Drivers Fail To Install On Vaio FW11M

I have an FW11M which I formatted when I bought it, put on vista ultimate and after a weekend of fiddling, got all of the devices detected with correct drivers installed.

Anyway, now I would like to update the graphics drivers to the new ATI 9.1 catalysts except that every time I try, I run the setup, it appears as though it is working and then says installation complete...

however, it changes nothing. Device manager still reports the old driver version and the catalyst control centre does not run

Sony :: VAIO Runs Slower After Semi-clean Install

Jan 2, 2009

Bought a VGN-FW26 over the weekend (ATI HD3650, 2.40 Core Duo, 4GB RAM, Vista Home Premium).

On bootup, tried out a few games (mainly Fallout 3, Rainbow Six Las Vegas). Everything was running smooth, especially Rainbow Six at full resolution). This is with all the factory-included bloatware running.

I got annoyed at the bloatware, so performed a semi-clean install of Vista (ie. reformatted comp, reinstalled Vista, cancelled the installation process for the Sony programs ... then manually installed a selected number of programs using the VAIO Recovery Centre. These programs consisted several of the essentials from the programs list, and ALL the drivers).

Now, when I run the for-mentioned games, there's a noticeable increased lag for those games. I have even removed optimised Vista by disabling some unnecessary services, as well as made sure there are no unnecessary background programs running (e.g. McAfee)

In addition, I haven't been able to install the Catalyst Control Center, the VAIO Recovery Center only lets me install the ATI driver (I was thinking perhaps the lag in games is because my graphics card is running in a "maximise batteries" mode?) Is there anyway I can extract the Catalyst Control Center install from the recovery disks/drive?
