Sony :: Battery Care On My Vaio FW490

Aug 12, 2009

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.

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

Mar 26, 2010

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)

Mar 15, 2009

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 :: Battery Care Lost After Win7

Nov 18, 2009

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

Mar 21, 2009

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

May 8, 2009

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

Mar 25, 2009

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 Vostro 3450 :: Can't Reinstall Drivers After OS Reinstall

Feb 3, 2013

My Dell Vostro 3450 (windows 7) had been running slowly for a while and after a virus scan didn't work, I decided to reinstall my operating system. I used the OS reinstall disk that came with the computer and that seemed to work pretty well. However, when it came time to install the drivers, I hit a roadblock. I put in the drivers disk and tried to go through the list of what drivers to install first (DSS, then chipset, etc...) but each time I installed something, it didn't seem to do anything-- I would go through the whole process for each one, but the little check mark wouldn't appear next to it in the "My System" list.... See below:

My computer can't connect to the internet either by ethernet or wifi, and can only input info through the cd drive.

Sony :: New Z: Can I Mirror Just C Partition For Reinstall

May 26, 2010

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 :: VAIO- If A VAIO Had No Ram Should (if All Else Was Working) It Be Getting POST Beeps

Jan 15, 2010

I have just been given a VAIO PCG8A2M (GRX316MP) , i was told "it's broken but if you can fix it yo can have it" so having a quick look at it there's no sign of life on the display but the lights come on and i can here the HDD heads moving about.

Looking a little more i found that all the ram is missing , so now im not sure if its worth buying some ram to see if it works or not ? The lack of ram would prob explain the lack of display but i wonder if i should be getting POST beeps at least, which im not.

So my question is if a VAIO had no ram should (if all else was working) it be getting POST beeps ?

Sony :: VAIO TZ295N Vs VAIO TZ395N

Jul 4, 2009

I don't know whats the diference (besides the price), between VAIO TZ295N & VAIO TZ395N. Specs in all the websites I've checked say they have exactly the same components: Intel coreduo 1.33Ghz 2GB RAM DVD-RW and 64GB SSD Hardrive. I was wonder if the diference might be in the hard drive interface, with the TZ295N being PATA and TZ395N being SATA.

Sony :: (Old) VAIO Z BD Drive Fit In (New) VAIO Z Series

Mar 27, 2010

I'm wondering if the Blu-ray optical drive (Panasonic UJ-232A) of the (old) VAIO Z series will be able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series? I would really appreciate it if anyone is able to answer my question.

The reason I'm asking is because I'm seriously thinking of selling my VAIO Z690 & just buying the base Sony VAIO Z (VPCZ112GX/S). I may just be able to afford that base model & the icing on the cake will definitely be the UJ-232A drive being able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series & work.

Dell :: Battery Care

Dec 25, 2009

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

HP/Compaq :: DV7 Battery Care

Apr 16, 2010

It's been since the DV6000t that I looked at battery & notebook technology.

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

Is it still so? Will just plain leaving it in the machine all the time plugged in shorten the life or effciency? Or have things progressed?
