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 :: Battery Care On My Vaio FW490
life of the battery on my new Vaio FW490. The battery on my previous laptop (an IBM Thinkpad circa 2004), was always connected to the laptop, and almost always plugged in. I rarely used the battery. After a couple of years, I noticed that the battery could barely hold a charge for more than 15 minutes.

Is it a good idea to regularly run the laptop off the battery? Is keeping the laptop plugged in for long periods of time OK? What should I do to ensure that my battery lasts.

Sony :: New Vaio Care Software Update Out. (3.0.0.0423)
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 :: Which 3rd-party Software Can Replace Vaio Care
do you usually use Vaio Care via ASSIST button? I found that Vaio Care does not have enough feature as other system tools on the market, as well as it runs too slowly so I decide to uninstall it and use a better 3rd party tool.

software that can take care of my notebook?

after uninstalling Vaio Care, the ASSIST button does not run anymore, I'm wondering if I can use it to execute an application.

Sony :: Battery Care (FW11M)
I did a clean install a while back, I don't have recovery CD's

I want to use the battery care function, so I installed the utility, but all the options are greyed out. I tried installing the Sony shared library and the utility dll, but still nothing.

Can anyone tell me how to get it working or if it's even possible, or if there is some other way I can stop the battery charging when it reaches a certain level.

Sony :: New Z: Can I Mirror Just C Partition For Reinstall
Still setting up my new Z. I had to do a full recovery to get out of a bad software.

Due to some esoteric software, installing all my software on my C drive takes about 30 hours. (Much of it unattended but still, a huge effort.)

I am going to partition off the C drive for programs after the install. The D drive will be for my data.

I have a 1 Tb portable external drive.

Once I set up the C drive to exactly how I need it to be, I would like to somehow mirror that C partition onto the portable hard drive. Then if my C drive corrupts after use, I can just remirror it from the image on the portable drive quickly for a 'fresh install' performance.

But since the portable drive is 1 Tb, i still want to use the excess space to write other data without ruining the C drive's image.

Sony :: Battery Care Lost After Win7
I have searched for a full solution to this but there seems to be none at the moment.

Anyway, i have a sort of quick half-solution that i can share if your battery is stuck at below 100% and can live without the battery care program.

Apparently the setting is saved in the battery memory, if you want to change the battery charge setting, stick it in another Vaio that has the battery care program working

Sony :: Battery Care Function On TZ1xx
I recently bought a used TZ190N/B (32 GB SSD, US model) and I finished the basic clean install and I'm trying to install the programs/drivers that I need.

Does the Battery Care function/feature come standard with the US versions of the TZ1xx series? It is not available for download on the sony esupport site and is not listed in the programs list on my self-made recovery discs. The only thing remotely similar is "Battery Checker" in Notebook Utilites package, but that only verifies if the battery being used is a genuine Sony battery.

I ran a search and found that Battery Care can be downloaded from the link in post #4 of this thread: for the people who want battery care function after a clean installation
But I figured that if the feature isn't offered on Recovery discs or the sony essuport site, then maybe it isn't meant to run on my specific TZ... Will it work on mine?

Sony :: FW: Missing Battery Care Function
I have a Sony FW285 with a clean install of Vista Ultimate done about 4 months ago.

I recently noticed that when I start up Vaio Control Center, Sony Battery Care and Power Management doesn't show up anymore. This is really bugging me since I have my battery set on 50% charge so I need a power outlet everywhere I go.

I've tried reinstalling Battery Care, Power Management and Vaio Control Center but like mentioned, Battery Care just refuses to show up in Vaio Control Center

Sony :: Power Mangement And Battery Care Functions Are Gone
The vaio power management and battery care icons are gone from Vaio control center. I have already desinstalled and re-installed Vaio ctrl ctr as well as pwr manag and all stays the same.

I had the battery care activated and now it does not charge over 80%.

Do you know how can I solve this without having to use the system full restore which is a real burden.

Is there a way to activate the power management, specifically the battery care function by any other means (eg: command line).

Dell :: Battery Care
I use the laptop with it plugged in 80% of the time and do my best to ensure the laptop is cool. I dont do any gaming on it, but do watch quite a few films (with it sitting on a basket so there is a good few inches underneath to prevent over heating.

After all of this i have lost 40% of my battery life, which i find horrendous. If this keeps up ill have to replace it 18months after buying my laptop. I intend to call Dell over this ASAp but in the meantime i want to know what i can do to preserve my battery life.


Should i leave the battery plugged in all the time, i do move the laptop round quite a bit, so having the battery there to save myself from shutting it down etc would is usefull to me.

I am carefull over the operating temperatures and i very rarely 'stress' the laptop. I could also count the number of times the battery has been left to drain

From then I believed to cyccle the battery a couple times and store it out of the machine @ around 60%.

Acer :: Can't/won't Say How To Wipe & Reinstall
A few days ago I phoned Acer's local home office in San Jose, CA. I understand Acer customers, like any of the reported support lines, are hard to get thru to. Fortunately I called their home office as they kindly listened to why I was calling (Acer's recovery instructions conflict and can't be followed), eg; the instructions refer to uses of their "recovery media" disk(s) as opposed to either "recovery disk" or "system disk" (which's what those two 'media' disks are labeled and Acer instructions are 'all over the place'; ie; conflicting and uninterpretable).

Of note, apparently calls from Acer's H.O. and are answered by support after "one" ring. Because Acer publishes some 5 sets of how to's for recovering their AOA150 OS's and few to none of those instructions agree with each other, including the instructions that are mailed with the "system" disk, I decided to at least clear up what the differences were between the "recovery" and "system" disks.

After nearly 20 minutes of repeating my name, most all the details I'd already answered, not to mention having reiterated my question something like 5 times (likely their support people have a so called supervisor who loosely listens to the goings on in their 'boiler room' and pretty likely the workers soon realize to keep the super's off their backs, they simply ask for your name and everything again, just to make it look like they're on another call)......................

HP/Compaq :: Do I Really Want To Reinstall Vista On My HP
My wife has an HP DV6000 with Vista on it from the factory. We have talked about reinstalling Vista to get rid of all the other "junk" to put it nicely. I mentioned this to my brother-in-law and he said we don't want to reinstall Vista because HP puts so much on there to help users. If we reinstall Vista are we going to loose out on something HP gave us?

Dell :: Extent Of Complete Care
I have been getting pissed with my Dell XPS M1530 a bunch lately because a good amount of things have been going wrong with it. I have mad multiple parts replaced.

I think that my hard drive is now going dead. And I can not get a non buggy trackpad for it. I have been getting so pissed ive been thinking of selling it and getting a Macbook.

I have a Complete Care warranty which means they will replace anything for free. do you guys think that if I complained enough, and tried to convince them enough, that they would replace my laptop in whole? I am guessing they probably wouldn't, since I have had it for almost a year, but it would be worth a try. The only thing is that they no longer offer the hi def lcd that I have in it.

Dell :: Customer Care Experiences ..
I have had my M1330 (yes the one with the NVIDIA 8400M chip) have had no major problems to date. However, two days ago I had some touchpad issues i.e. a sluggish, unresponsive touchpad so I decided to contact Dell. The experience was really good I go an agent by the name of Mr. Abdul Aleem who was really friendly and provided me with a form to transfer my ownership and then he fixed the issue.

Now earlier this year I contacted Dell about another machine and this wacko was telling me that since I bought the laptop at Best Buy I should go to Best Buy to deal with warranty issues despite the laptop having 1 year basic warranty from Dell.

So I was very pleased with the interaction with Mr. Aleem.

So this a thread to share your experiences with Dell's Customer Care.

Acer :: Lithium Ion Battery Care
Why does a lithium ion laptop battery degrade over time?

The reason is quite simple. The way a lithium ion battery works is by moving lithium ions and electrons from one electrode of the battery to the other. The electrons move trough your your laptop circuitry to power it, while the lithium ions move trough some fluid to balance the electrons movement. If the lithium ions can't move through the fluid then the electrons can't move through your computer either. The problem is that the fluid that allows the lithium ions to move from electrode to electrode degrade and dry over time. As it becomes more and more difficult for the lithium ions to move it also becomes more and more difficult for the battery to power your laptop.

What makes the fluid containing the lithium ions degrade?

The fluid containing the lithium ions will naturally degrade over time at room temperature, but there are several factors that will accelerate the degradation. The first one is heat: the hotter the laptop battery the faster the fluid gets dry. The second factor is charge cycles. When you recharge your laptop battery this generates significant heat in the battery and helps degrade the fluid. Leaving the battery constantly charged also has a negative effect on the life of the fluid.............

Dell :: XPS M1730 Vista Reinstall
Today I will get my XPS M1730 (warranty replacement for my Gen2). I'll get it with Vista Home Premium 32bit and I have a few questions.

2. If it is, I plan to reinstall Vista with a retail Ultimate DVD my friend has bought. Can I use the serial on the backside of my computer for this installation to get a clean Home Premium installation?

Acer :: Deleted EISA And Cant Reinstall XP
I went through and cleaned out all the media and whatnots I wanted to save before a system reformat. So I popped in the XP install disc and restarted my ACER ASPIRE 1520.

I came to the blue XP install screen ... pressed F8 to agree like a good boy and then came to the hard drive partitions.

to my surprise not only did I have hard drive partitions C and D but also a hd partition called

" :- eisa tools "

I thought to myself "I do not remember seeing that before"

so after weighing my assumptions for a couple of mintues I thought "eh, i'll delete it and reinstall THEN deal with the issues if they pop up" ... part of me was still saying "dont do it, DONT DO IT"

so I did it ... deleted all 3 partitions and then created 2 new partitions. I then selected which partition I wanted to install XP on and came to the NTFS or FAT format screen ...

I selected NTFS and *blip* ... the computer shut off. So I turned it back on after checking the power adapter and making sure everything was secure, it was.

After the computer going *blip* and shutting off at various points in the course of the XP install blue screen (non further along than the NTFS format section) I then decided to go into BIOS.

So I restarted the computer , pressed F2 to get into bios and I did .......

Apple :: Reinstall My PC And Worried About My IPod
First I must admit that I really did search both the main forums and even specifically in the Apple and Mac OS X forums and didn't find a really good answer to this question. It seems that mostly folks agree that iTunes itself should do a good enough job of backing things up.

Here's the deal...

My wife's notebook needs to have the OS reinstalled. Just to simply clean it up, make it faster, etcetcetc. In the past when we've done this everything always goes smoothly EXCEPT for the iPod.

She has a couple of purchased music on it, she has a couple of purchased games and even a movie, as well as TON of music, 20 GB or so (funny, we used to think that was a lot but it seems not, many people have several times this). The iPod has always given me difficulties with restoring only the purchased stuff, games and the music pieces we purchased legit. Twice before I have managed to cram things back on there with various 3rd party software but the names escape me since it typically takes several hours of installing this, trying this, uninstalling and try again with something else.

My wife's notebook is a PC and she is running Vista. When we go to 'reinstall' we are simply going to use the restore partition and install our other software from there.

Dell :: Complete Care I9100 To 1520
I used to have the ATI Radeon Pro 9800+ in it. The new 1520 has the integrated graphics. I know that sucks. I've requested consideration for a new graphics controller from Dell. If they don't give me one through support, how can I order the 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600M GT? I can't find a Dell part number or a listing of it on the website at all!
The 1520 has a Core 2 Duo T7300 processor (2.0 Ghz). My old machine had an Intel P4 3.2G processor. Will the new processor be as fast as my old one for games?

What's the best strategy to potentially get Dell to be sympathetic that I bought the laptop for a game machine, and the fact that an integrated graphics controller does bumpkiss for games?
