Sony :: Extended Battery Sticks Out

Jan 21, 2009

Why is it that the sony extended batteries come out from the bottom of the laptop(the z-axis) instead of out the back(y-axis), I kinda feel the Lenovo approach towards extended battery makes a lot more sense...

Sony :: Extended Battery

Apr 6, 2010

For those in the UK/Europe who ordered CTOs with the extended battery...

Did the extended battery come attached to the laptop in the box in place of the standard one, or is it sent separately, in addition to getting the standard one

Sony :: New Vaio Owner- Regarding SD Cards & Mem Sticks

Mar 26, 2010

I have a question for the new Z owner with 128GB SSD.

I have been thinking about returning the unit in exchange for one with a larger SSD due to the drives lower capacity.

After reformatting and installing win7 Ultimate Office 2007, and some other things I deem as required Iam left with approximately 76 GB this includes BFBC2.

I have a few more games and some benchmark tools I like to install etc.

I would like to hear a few opinions on SD Capacity (SDHC) or Sony memory cards as an alternative for additional storage rather than returning it for the higher capacity SSD models and getting nailed with a 15% restock fees.

Do SD cards or the Sony mem Stocks have any short comings?

Dell :: Sleeve For Studio 15 With Extended Battery?

Dec 5, 2009

My aunt has the same laptop as I, and I have her name in our family drawing for Xmas... and she's wanting a nice sleeve.

She already has a laptop bag, she just wants something smaller for a quick "up and go" where she doesn't need her accessories, charger, etc.

I've looked at a few and I think they'd be close -- it's just that the extended battery makes the back end awful thick, which worries me.

Soooo I was wondering if anyone has actually purchased or used a sleeve with their Studio 15 with the extended battery, and if so which brand/model.

Dell Studio 1749 :: Extended Battery Life Gone

Jan 6, 2012

I had to reset my Studio 1749 to factory defaults and now the option for "Dell Extended Battery Life" within the Dell Battery Meter is gone. I don't know what needs to be reinstalled in order to get it back.

These are the changes that might affect the issue:

- Installed a different WiFi-Card (Dell 1520)- Installed a different Tuner Card (Yuan, provided by Dell)- Installed Service Pack 1 for Windows 7- Flashed BIOS to A08- Updated all Drivers and Utilities from the Dell Homepage except for the ATI-Driver

I think it is a useful tool if you use your notebook on battery, because it is able to control a few options that are not available in Windows 7 default power plans.

Sony :: Vaio Extended Warranty

May 18, 2009

Last august i purchased a vaio sr from sonystyle with a 3 year express ship extended warranty w/out ADH. I assumed that this warranty would be automatically linked to my laptop serial and i would just be able to call up sony and initiate a repair after the 1 year manufacturers warranty expired. However,

from reading forum posts it seems I was supposed to have received warranty documents and I was supposed to have activated the warranty within a certain time period. However, these documents weren't included with my shipment

Sony :: VAIO SZ61 Extended RAM To 4 GB

Aug 18, 2009

I just wanted to let you all know that I managed to get 4GB of RAM installed and up and running on my Sony Vaio SZ61.

This despite the fact that both my local sony reseller and the sony helpdesk argued that this was not possible.

I bought the laptop two years ago, with 2GB on board. In my memory they back then said it could be extended to 3GB but i have no proof for that.

Anyway, steps i took where very simple:
-update the BIOS to version R00122S5(downloaded from the sony site were the SZ61 was not even on there anymore...) It was compatible with the SZ71 according to sony so i took the change but is updated smoothly.
-bought 2 SODimm modules of 2GB pc5300 compatible (kingston)
-opened the laptop changed the dimm modules and off we go.

I run dual boot mostly Ubuntu Linux Jaunty and occasionally the vista that came with the laptop.

In both environments it is recognized and i can use 3.8GB

The laptop now is again up to the job(every day heavy usage, testing on VMs and datamining applications with big datasets etc etc.)

Sony :: Provantage Extended Service Plans

Feb 26, 2010

For those of you who own VAIO notebooks and purchased a Provantage Extended Service Plan did you ever have to send your notebook in for repair/service? If so how did it go? Did you send it to Provantage first or directly to a Sony service center? Are these plans the same ones that Sony Style sells only cheaper?

Sony :: Post-Purchase Extended Warranty

Jun 2, 2009

Just received a Z610y as a college graduation gift, but it was not purchased with an extended warranty. I'm accident-prone, and am interested in a 3 year extended warranty with ADH.

I talked to someone at Sony Style who said I could purchase the warranty up to 30 days from the date of sale. I noticed has one for sale, but when I talked to an associate there, they said it was only for sale with the purchase of a new laptop.

Sony :: Credit Card Extended Warranty

Apr 21, 2010

Just an FYI. I recently bought a Vaio NW from Best Buy using a credit card. I always use my card to pay for day-to-day expenses to collect the miles. I called the card company and they told me that they automatically extend the manufacturer's warranty for an additional year (effectively doubling Sony's) and if the computer is damaged due to mishandling or some other unfortunate incident, they will repair or replace for free. I did not pay any additional money for this.

Now, I don't know how good their repair services will be and I hope to never find out.

But I am glad that I did not spend the large amount to extend the warranty through Sony or Best Buy. Food for thought for you. It may be a good idea for all of you to check with your card company to see if they cover you.

Dell :: XPS 13 "Extended Battery Life" Option In The Advanced Power Options?

Apr 12, 2009

#1 - What is the "Dell Extended Battery Life" option in the advanced power options? What does it do? The help article just says that extends the battery life.

#2 - With the facial recognition software, is there any way to take multiple "logon" images for the same user? Like sometimes I have the laptop on my lap

and sometimes it is on my desk and sometimes it is on the side so I can use with my external monitor and it seems like it won't log me in automatically unless I am in the exact position as when I enrolled it.

Sony :: Vaio Z11, Extended Batteries And Leather Case

May 11, 2010

I'm about to purchase a Vaio Z (sweeet!), with a config from the Sony website. They advertise the extended battery, but is that the VGP-BPL11 / S11 or X11?

here are the batteries.

I would think it's the middle ground battery, the X11 being some kind of special James Bond-type add on, but I'd like a confirmation if anyone is able to provide. I tried to contact their support but it's just not getting through.

Furthermore, are these all compatible with the VGPCKZ2.AE case? Looks perfect for my needs.

Acer :: Aspire 1650 Ram Sticks

Jan 19, 2009

I need to upgrade the RAM on an Acer Aspire 1650. I used CPU-Z to check and it told me it is PC2 4300 DDR2 ram. All nice till this point.

I happened to have two 512MB DDR2 sticks around and tried to install them there, but no luck.

They don't FIT.

I checked 2 other laptops and they all use the same memory sticks like the spare I have and none have the same size as the Aspire in question.

Checking online, all DDR2 PC2 4200~4300 SO-DIMM sticks I can find are "200pin", but the spare stick I have is ALSO 200pin.

How can I tell if a certain memory will be compatible with this model? Does ACER use some "very very very specific" type of memory?

Acer :: Travelmate 2450 Bsod Errors With 2x1gig Sticks

Oct 23, 2009

I'm using the notebook right now, waiting for a blue screen. None so far with a single 1 gig stick. I tested both stick's by themselves no errors, as soon as I use both i get bsods left and right.

Both are Pny 667 1 gig sticks, But i was cheap and since i had a stick already, i snagged another off Ebay. I guess they weren't well matched.

I'm going to test both slots and make sure there's no errors. So i guess it's a lesson not to be to cheap and just buy in pairs.

One more thing i might try is to lower the shared video memory, i noticed that some programs are reporting to much memory allocated to video.

Lenovo U/S Series :: Some USB Sticks And MMC Slot Not Working After Restore On U530

Sep 15, 2014

I have a U530.  I had to restore the laptop to factory configuration.  However, after the restore the MMC slot and the USB slots do not work properly.  The MMC slot does not work at all.  The USB slots will work with newer sticks (3.0?), but not older sticks that I have (which are properly recognized by all other PCs I have running 8.1).  I went to the support site and installed the "latest" drivers, but they did not resolve the problem.  I tried installing the latest firmware, but it returned "LoadImage() Failed! Access Denied.  Error:  Update BIOS Failed! Unload Image() Failed! Invalid Parameter.  InsydeH20 - Secure Flash. Error: Firmware update failed!!! Please press any key to reset system......"
I've already spent the time to reinstall all my software and really do not have the time to try another reset to factory configuration. How to get my MMC and USB slots working properly.

Lenovo W520 ThinkPad W Series :: Mix Two Different Pairs Of Memory Sticks?

Jun 10, 2009

I have 2 x 4GB sticks of G.SKill F3-8500CL7D-8GBSQ DDR3-1066 PC3-8500 CL7-7-7-20 SO-DIMM.
They worked perfectly as the only memory sticks in a W500, but I'd like to install them in addition to the 2 x 4GB Lenovo memory sticks that came with the W520.
Is this going to work and be stable at all? After reading the W520  specs, I'm still uncertain about the memory speeds of the two different sets of sticks and if that is a real compatibility issue. I don't know enough about memory specs.
