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 :: SSD Option In Vaios

Aug 23, 2009

Does anyone know what kind of SSD drive Sony ships with their SR and Z series laptops?

I've been doing some research on SSD drives and it seems like a bunch of them slow down considerably after prolonged use (albeit still faster than HDD)

Sony :: New Z- 2nd HDD/No Optical Option Like The TZ/TT

Jan 27, 2010

I'm an old TR and now a TZ owner, and my TZ is awesome in the fact that it could be spec'd with a 2nd HDD, replacing the DVD drive (which i used once in a blue moon, and have an external for that)

I have the 64GB SSD and now a 500GB HDD, so it's perfect, fast SSD for the OS and shed-loads of space for all my photos and films n stuff.

So since i now want to upgrade to something with more power, and the new Z looking so awesome(!), I'm hoping they'll offer the same 2nd HDD option.

I really can't express how useful and sensible this option is (especially for my usage)

Feb 12, 2010

Is there any word on possibly upgrading the Vaio F series GPU to something better than the 330M in the future? It is the only thing stopping me from getting a Vaio F , since it won't be too great for gaming.

Sony :: Vaio VPC-Z1 (HDD Option): Custom RAID

Apr 25, 2010

I've got the HDD option, which replaces the optical drive with a normal HDD, and doesn't come with proprietary Sony SSDs. I've been thinking about and testing RAID configurations, and this thread is meant to gather some thoughts on that. At some level it's probably easier to go the Sony SSD route, but... I prefer something else

There are two parts: (1) external RAID, (2) internal RAID.

Part 1: External RAID

I went down this path because I believed that there's only one SATA port offered by the HDD-option. From Intel [url], it appears that the port multiplier functionality is not implemented in the ICH8, which is what the Z1 comes with. This means we can't get two or more drives to logically share the same SATA port, which means that they have to appear as one logical device, which in turn means that some sort of external RAID/BIG hardware is needed.

I tried a number of hardware RAID solutions. The first was the Silicon Image SiI 4726, in a mini-board with a form between the 2.5" and 1.8" drives. Unfortunately, after configuration on a (old) desktop, the chip offers only its admin drive ("Config") to the bios and Windows, rendering it impossible to boot off of...........

Sony :: SD Slot No Eject Or Safe Remove Option?

Dec 2, 2009

I just got my new Sony Vaio VGN FW590FVB yesterday and am having a problem. Once I enter either of my SD cards into the SD slot,

they show up fine under "my computer". However, once I am done using them, there is no option on the taskbar to "safely remove"

the SD card. There is also no option when I right click on the SD card under "my computer" for "eject"

Sony :: SZ Power...AGAIN

Apr 23, 2009

my laptop is not charging from the AC even when it is plugged in and is draining the batteries. As well, the battery seem to drain even in hibernation mode. I have had this problem twice and it has been fixed by sony under warranty. However, the warranty will expire in October and I don't know what I'll do when that happens. I certainly do not have the money to keep fixing this nor to buy another notebook.

Sony :: TZ Will Not Power On

Jan 25, 2009

Less than 24 hours ago, I backed my TZ130 up to my desktop system at home. This morning, I can't get it to power on at all. I press the power switch but nothing happens. I plug the charger in but no light come on the TZ indicating that it is charging. Drag!

I've helped Sony sell many T series laptops over the last few year, and I've owned a TR1, T340P and now this TZ130. This latest notebook seems snakebit, though. A little over a year ago I broke the screen in some way that I still don't know ($700 repair). I had to send the notebook back for the hinge/wiring inspection, and now this.

Well, time to pull the trusty TR1 off the shelf, update the software, and install the backup that I did yesterday.

Sony :: Can I Power With USB

Oct 9, 2009

I have a gently used Vaio with power issues. The battery is shot. The jack is broken inside, and the power adapter I have doesn't work so well either.

Rather than replacing two of those three items, can I power this thing with a USB cord? I have seen them for sale for iphones and mp3 players...will that work for the Vaio?

Sony :: SZ Won't Run On AC Power

Nov 28, 2009

Tray icon says the battery is charging and the computer is running of AC power. However, the battery is being drained and if i pull out the battery, the computer shuts off. I can sometimes get the battery to recharge if i shut down the computer and leave it off for awhile.

I thought it was a bad AC adapter, but i tried another and had the same problem.

Does this sound like a software problem, or is my adapter jack bad (where the ac adapter plugs into the laptop)?

Sony :: Z11 & Power Profiles

Mar 28, 2010

I've been spending some time playing around with all the new Z's power options (which I assume are mostly related to Windows 7), but I find that I like the fact that each of the 3 "modes" can be assigned a different overall profile, with different behaviors whether plugged in or on battery.

So I can use "Auto" mode for daily use (where I'm generally plugged in) with Nvidia graphics and pretty much everything set for good performance without excess heat production. Then if I simply unplug to do some surfing for a couple hours in front of the couch, "Auto" drops down to the Intel adapter but keeps reasonable performance settings, Aero, etc .....

Sony :: Z Power Connector

Aug 31, 2009

How sturdy is the power connector on the Z? The power cord is putting quite a bit of pressure on the connector.

The connector is made of plastic, not metal. I have my doubts about the longevity of this kind of connector.

Sony :: VGN NR 260e Power

Jul 6, 2009

I have a sony vaio vgn nr 260e. The laptop will not turn on nor will the battery charge.
I am thinking it is the DC jack on the back of the laptop that is the culprit, but 100% sure.

The green light on the AC adapter comes on and according to my voltage tester the end of the cord has power. My multimeter is broken and have yet to replace it.

I bought a new DC jack, for a couple of bucks, but have not put it in yet. I have not found any good instructions on how to do that. I would prefer not to take my whole laptop apart to change it but if i have to i will.

Sony :: Power- With Vaio Z

Aug 14, 2009

I'm typing this on my other computer, but my Z has mysteriously encountered some power problems all of a sudden.

I can't turn it on. It just happened all of a sudden. No noise, no lights, no movement.

I did manage to turn it on by taking out the battery, unplugging it, and waiting 6-8 hours afterwards, it would turn on, and in the middle of booting up, it turns off. If I'm lucky, it'll make it all the way into windows and then shut off again.

I have to mention that I have opened up the laptop previously about a month ago, and cleaned the vents and fans off with compressed air, and applied AS5 to the CPU and GPU. Not sure if that's related, but that was a while ago.

Sony :: SZ Power Fault

Jan 19, 2009

Last week I bough a Vaio SZ71N/C an today I noticed a weird sensation when I touch the palm rest. On a light touch it feels like there is a little bit of electrical current on the palm rest.

When I unplug the machine this effect stops, so it does seemto be related to the power connection. Maybe there is a fault in a power connection somewhere in the machine....

Has anyone experienced anything similar and do you think his could be a fault in the internal wiring?

Sony :: Vaio SR490 Power

Nov 11, 2009

So my brand new SR490 is already having some weird power issue. What happens is, the adapter stops powering the computer. This started happening randomly last week. I would be sitting there on the computer, and the screen would dim (I have it set to do this when it goes onto battery power).

I would move the adapter around, make sure it's plugged in right, but that didn't change anything. After a few minutes,

it would switch back to AC power by itself. It was worse last night, when the battery actually died because it wasn't getting a charge. The computer was just sitting on the desk and it kept switching between AC power and the battery .....

Sony :: Vaio PCG-FRV26 No Power

Nov 8, 2009

I've been all over the internet, gathering whatever info I can find, but I'm stuck. It's a Vaio PCG-FRV26 (PCG-9J5L) that just shut down one day, had a very slight 'burn' smell & will not power on, no lights. Opening it up it was full of dust balls & the fans were filthy - cleaned it real nice with vacuum & compressed air. I replaced the power jack, had it tested & there definitely is power to the board, also had the AC adapter/charger tested & it's good. I also played with various combinations of RAM chips in & out, re-set button, on/off with adapter & battery in/out combinations, holding on button variations etc. Still no lights or power. I've opened it up 3 times now, everything looks new/intact/great.

I have a PDF manual for this series, but cannot find the CMOS battery in the laptop! I don't think the manual is that great, not enough info, detailed explode schematic is not enough, tricky to follow, says where the CMOS/RTC bat is but I can't find it. Is it under the motherboard? do I have to remove MB?

If laptop did overheat - can I re-set it?

Sony :: WD 320 GB USB Passport Loses Power On My FW

Feb 7, 2009

I am having problems with my WD Passport USB 320 GB drive losing power sometimes when various schedlued backup programs are supposed to run or simply when accessing the drive to open files. Have it plugged in to the USB port closest to where I am sitting, closest to front of my FW. When power is lost, I can restart what I am doing and it comes alive again with no problems but it is sort of irritating. I am running Vista home premium 32 bit.

what I need to look for to solve this problem. The WD drive is new, just a few months old. The drive has no included AC adapter or anything like that.
