Sony :: Vaio Z720D: Uninstalling VAIO Care, VAIO Update

Trying to get rid of these questionably useful programs -- but I don't see entries for them in add/remove programs in the control panel (or for any of the other useless VAIO software packages that come on OEM machines sans "fresh start")

Sony :: Vaio SR Update

Nov 18, 2009

when Sony are likely to refresh the SR? It's well overdue a re-design.

I know the SR was refreshed when Windows 7 launched in October, so I'm guessing we'll have to wait until at least January.

What would be like to see in a new model? Sony wouldn't want it to compete with the Z, so I don't think people should expect too much.

Sony :: Vaio Update 4

Dec 4, 2009

I have a VGN-Z51WG-B laptop (Win7 x64). Since new the Vaio update tells me there are "No updates" available. If however I check manually via the esupport website there are numerous updates for my model which should be available via the Vaio Update Tool. Is there some security settings blocking detection? I have reduced IE8 Security down to "medium".

Acer :: To Acquire Gateway

Aug 27, 2007

It was announced this morning that Acer will be acquiring Gateway for $710 million in cash. The newly formed "multi-branded" company (the Gateway name will stay in the US) will be formed by December 2007 (provided they pass the usual regulatory scrutiny) and has been unanimously approved by the boards of both companies.

So what does this mean for us? The buyers?

According to the press release, prices will end up lower across the board because they will be able to leverage the best of each company to lower costs. That's something that we always like to hear.

Quote:

The considerable increase in scale will result in reductions in per unit procurement and component costs for both companies. This combination also creates a real opportunity for the cross-selling of product portfolios by leveraging the customer relationships of both Acer and Gateway. Significant savings are also expected through the increased efficiency of the combined back-office functions........................

Sony :: New Vaio Care Software Update Out. (3.0.0.0423)

May 14, 2009

User Interface has changed quite a bit.

It's also now compatible with IE8's rendering engine (previous Vaio Care versions would crash when rendering checkup reports. Boots much faster than it used to and seems to work with Vista a bit better in general, though I've not looked at every feature.

good piece of software to have an allow to run if you haven't before. FYI.

Sony :: VAIO SR ATI 4570 Driver Update To V9.6 Guide

Jul 21, 2009

From browsing the forums, i see that everyone is having trouble updating their drivers. Mobility modder currently does not support the ATI 4 series but there is still a way to install the drivers for us fortunuately . By doing this, you are able to install the display driver v9.6 but no CCC unforunately; however you can still retain the CCC v9.2 from Sony's official drivers.

1> Download the appropriate version OS of the 9.6 driver from [url]

2> Double click the file you just download and click install. It will unzip a folder to C:ATI (default). These are driver files. When the actual installation wizard comes up, cancel it.

3> Browse to C:ATI9-6_beta_win7_64_dd_CC (Driver name, e.g.)PackagesDriversDisplayW7_INF (For 32-bit) OR W76A_INF (for 64-bit)

**Btw, I am doing this example based on the Window 7 Install. (Other versions of the OS should be the same except the INF file name may be different)**

4> I am under 64-bit so I will use W76A_INF as an example for this guide. Double click on the INF file (for W7, it is named C7_81757)

5> Scroll down the file until you see a list like;

"ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_94C1&SUBSYS_0D021002
"ATI Radeon HD 2900 PRO" = ati2mtag_R600, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9400&SUBSYS_30001002
"ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT" = ati2mtag_R600, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9400&SUBSYS_25521002

6> Add this anywhere between the entries you see above (does not have to be exact, just place this entry somewhere along the lines of the WHOLE list)
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570" = ati2mtag_M9x, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&SUBSYS_9033104D
Congratulations, the display driver can now be installed ONLY VIA the HAVE DISK method.

7> Quick review on HAVE DISK method; Device Manager > Right Click ATI 4570 then Update Driver Software > Browse my computer > Let me pick a list of Device drivers... > Have Disk > (Now browse to the INF file you just edited, in this example; the C7_81757 inf file.) Install, voila, DONE.

8> Now, to get the CCC v9.2 (Can't get 9.6 yet), get Sony's ATI drivers, run it and click on CUSTOM install, NOT EXPRESS, install CCC only and anything that is mandatory (DO NOT INSTALL THEIR DISPLAY DRIVERS!!!) .Voila, CCC 9.2 function (which is the same as 9.6 essentially).

I believe this method works for NW series w/ ATI 4570 too.

Sony :: Vaio FZ290 Tryin To Update From Vista 32-Bit To Windows 7 64-Bit

Apr 23, 2009

I have a serious dillemma , I'm trying to install Windows 7 - 64 Bit on my 32-bit vista laptop.

I have a sony vaio fz290.

I burned the image of a 7077 build I downloaded from demonoid. Booted off of it and clicked install , and then I got an error about not having a Cd/Dvd drive device driver missing , I tried a lot of things and searched all over the internet.

A few things to ask as I'm desperate

What can I do to make this work ?

Do I have to format my comp for this to work or can I just update over the 32-bit installation

OR can I just install on a partition ?

Sony :: VAIO FNVIDIA Drivers Update (197.16) For GT 330M (10DE-0A29)

Apr 1, 2010

Update: NVIDIA released 197.44 drivers for notebooks(with OpenGL 4 support for Fermi GPU), GT300M only gets support up to 3.3

I used the same inf file(changing drivers' version and date, of course) and everything is working as expected.
Just follow the same instructions if you wanna try.
- 197.44 inf file and instructions: Midtown's 197.44 Instructions.zip (Mirrors: Megaupload, Hotfile)
- NVIDIA's original drivers: Download for Windows 7(64-bit)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I managed to install the new NVIDIA drivers for laptops, 197.16 on my VAIO F after modifying the inf file myself for a few hours. I'm no expert, but I guess it worked out fine.

Here's the link for inf file & instructions: Midtown's 197.16 Instructions.zip

Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for any hardware/software failure.

After testing the new drivers for 24hrs:
- No flicker at low brightness
- No uneven brightness after pressing the "Display Off" button
- Fan not constantly running
- "Normal" temperature compared to Sony's "certified" graphic drivers
- No problems after sleep/restart........................

Acer Gateway NE71B :: Cannot Update BIOS - Some Settings Don't Save After Changed

Dec 25, 2014

I have a Gateway NE71B a friend gave me and it has Windows 8 installed. I had to do some repair to it after a drink was spilled into it but I cleaned it out and its been fine, sorta...
 
Resuming from sleep doesn't work. It is just black. I have to shutit down and that works fine. It appears that a BIOS upgrade is needed and I downloaded the latest BIOS and tried to update it. It uses some 'InsideH2O' update app. Well it goes to reboot and when it tries to apply the BIOS, it keeps saying that it is an invalid firmware image. I've verifiedd that this is the correct BIOS file. I tried other BIOS versions and none will apply, always getting the error. I've researched the utility, extracted the config and BIOS. I'm tempted to tell it to write without verify (its that fustrating).
 
One option, that seems to saved most people is to disable Secure Boot. No matter what, I cannot do this. It never saves. I followed the official steps of powering off, then power on, set the admin password, disable Secure Boot, save and exit. Secure Boot always stays enabled. I've tried probably 30 times, 10 different ways and it just won't stick. I also noticed that I cannot change other settings in the BIOS. I can set some to a different value but they always revert back. I cannot get the function keys setting to stay on Function Keys. It always defaults back to Special Keys after reboot. Same thing goes with enabling F12 for boot menu. 
 
I've tried removing the coin battery, which has a charge, shorting out the contacts holding it for about a minute, removed power battery and power cable, letting it sit but still no good. I've also tried removing the hard drive. Where is the BIOS data being stored and can it be wiped?
 
I've been considering getting an Acer laptop but this is starting to steer me away. Definately not getting a Gateway.

Sony :: Am I Overdoing It With My Configuration

Jan 21, 2010

i visited Best Buy and went on the Sony Site and configured one that with their 200.00 savings comes in just under $300.00 more than the Asus, but has 10 times the specs. Can you tell me if there is such a thing as "over configuring it?!" The specs are as follows:

Model#: CW290X
i5 540M Processor (2.53GHz/3.06 GHz w Turbo Boost)
6 GB Ram
Nvidia GE Force GT 330M 512 dedicated graphics
320 GB Hard Drive - 7200rpm
Blue Ray Player (Not Burner)
High Capacity Battery

Those few items were so cheap to upgrade, it seemed dumm not to, but then again, will those upgrades leave me with NO battery life?

I thought perhaps a little less power and then i wouldn't need the high capacity battery (that was the most expensive (+100.00) i checked passmark on the cpu, video card etc, all looked good but i'm clearly clueless how it all runs together.

My needs are as follows:

not to see that lil blue circle everytime i open more than 3 windows

Sony :: Viao Update Site Not Recognising Update 4

Jun 2, 2009

I have a SONY VIAO VGN-SZ433N_B. I'm constantly reminded that there are new updates for my lap top, but when I try to install I am told 'VAIO Update 4.0 is required. VAIO Update (Ver. 4.0 and above) is required on your VAIO Notebook.'

So I installed Sony Update 4.0.0.08240 but still it isnt recognised. I have even tried to uninstall the previous Update module and then re install without success. I keep getting the same message, indicating that the Viao Update 4 I have isnt being recognised.

Sony :: Downgrading To XP And Brightness Settings For Newer Models

Mar 25, 2009

I've been busy downgrading my FW31ZJ (european model) to windows XP SP3.

I have found and installed the drivers for all components and things went smoothly, up until the point where I wanted to get my Fn-keys working.

This is where I got stuck initially and after much forum lurking I found the right Sony utilities to install, the order to install them in and so on (it is all on this forum).

Basicly you need the following components for your machine.

- Sony Firmware Extension Parser driver
- Sony Programmable I/O Controller driver
- Sony Shared Library
- Sony Utility DLL
- Sony Utility Settings
- Vaio Event Service

You also might have to copy the VESConfig.ini from the original Vista install.

I read here that for most this has worked well and offered full fn-keys functionality under XP. Unfortunately I'm not of you...

Sony :: VGN AW190- Unable To Locate Any Network In The Device Settings

Jan 4, 2009

I bought the laptop from Newegg and they shipped it with Vista Home Premium. I use the laptop at work so I purchased Vista business. However, when I install vista business, the drivers from Sony's website don't seem to work (especially the network ones). I am unable to locate any network in the device settings.

I called Sony and they said they do not have an official drivers cd for the AW190 since it is a newer laptop. They can't even confirm if Vista Business is compatible with AW190! All they told me to do was re-install the drivers in a certain order but that did not work either.

Is the AW190 Vista Business compatible? Has to be, right?

Sony :: NVidia Control Panel Color Settings Won't Stick

May 14, 2010

CW26FX - Anyone having trouble getting their video color settings to stick? I have adjusted my screen brightness/color/contrast via the NVidia Control Panel, but I periodically lose my settings. Initially there was a conflict with the VAIO Control Center - display settings there superseded whatever I did in the NVidia Control Panel. I eventually figured out how to get the NVidia Control Panel settings to stick by changing the display settings in the VAIO Control Center first - or at least I thought I did. It would work for a few reboots, but eventually I seemed to lose my settings again. So I uninstalled the VAIO Control Center hoping that would leave my NVidia Control Panel settings alone. But lo & behold I still periodically lose those settings (the NVidia Control Panel radio button "Other applications control color settings" is inexplicably selected.) Any ideas? (And yes, I hit "Apply" before closing out the NVidia Control Panel.)

Sony :: Boot Times For I5/i7 Z: Factory Settings, $50 Fresh Start, Clean Install, Manual Uninstall

Mar 20, 2010

Now that the new Sony Z is out, I think it would meaningful to get a sense of the boot time for this system under various scenarios.

If people could post the boot times of their Z with this information:

- Whether you're calculating the boot with all the bloatware untouched (factory settings), with the $50 Sony Fresh Start (which still has a couple unnecessary programs), a Clean Install, or a Manual Uninstall of all programs.

- And the size of your SSD or HDD. If it is an SSD, it would be nice to know if you can tell us have many SSDs are in the RAID 0 configuration as that affects the speed.

I think this would be very helpful not just for direct comparison, but as another factor to consider in whether to do a clean install, which takes more tech-savvy than some may have.
