Sony :: Fan Easily Accessible

Jul 23, 2009

The only thing that's stopping me from buying one is access to the fan. I live in a very dusty place and I clean my Asus fan every 2 or 3 months to keep it clean. So how easy is it to get to the fan of Sony laptops? I realize it won't be as easy as an Asus, I've also tried opening Lenovo laptops where you have to detach the palmrest and the lift the keyboard which is a little annoying but still fine. My worst nightmare is my friends Fujitsu where I can't seem to open at all. I'm looking at the SR or the CS models atm.

Sony :: How To Make Optical Drive Accessible In Vista On Z

Feb 11, 2009

how to make optical drive to be revealed on eject key press if it was turned off according to a powersaving scheme? This issue relates only to Sony Z after Vista clean installation (by this manual: Sony Z series 32bit Vista Clean Install Guide (full functions & no windows activation)). When I had "factory installed" Vista, it worked this way. But after I have reinstalled OS, DVD drive doesn't want to wake up without restart.

HP/Compaq :: Presario F756NR Easily Overheating

Nov 30, 2009

My laptop has a tendency to have it's fan going like an airplane all the time. Simple flash games can raise my core temperature through the roof. It will often (every couple of days) it likes to heat up so much that it shuts down, even while just browsing on the internet. I've read some things online and this seems to be a fairly common problem in the F700 series. I've had this laptop for about a year and I think that cleaning is overdue. Does anyone have a tutorial for opening up a laptop of close to the same model?

Jan 1, 2009

I really want to buy a black one as I prefer a matte finish and it wouldn't discolor, but I want it new and I cannot find any here in Canada, so I will have to buy a white one. This is going to be my very first mac and to me it's a lot of money... I hope it will be worth it (I'm a little nervous about the switch) .

Sony :: CS V MBP

Jul 23, 2009

having a hard time deciding between these two. I think in the end it'll come down to which screen size I like better.

But anyway, I was reading the review on the CS here and it says the battery lasted just under 4 hours but there's a higher capacity battery.

Sony :: New Z11

Mar 22, 2010

I lose about 5~10% of my battery life in a 12 hour period after shutting down my computer and unplugging it from the wall.

Anyone else experiencing something similar? No one else has brought it up for this new Z so I was wondering if I'm just a minority (granted the laptop is new and not many people have it yet)

Sony :: New Z W/3.06 CPU

Jul 12, 2009

I am in Shanghai and went to demo a new Vaio Z at a local SonyStyle store with a 3.06GHz CPU and Dual SSDs raided. The unit had Vista 64bit and 8GB of RAM... surprisingly though, no BluRay just a DVD Burner... go figure...

I tried to have someone explain to me if the design of the Z was changed because on my Z (model VGG-Z27GN) internally there is only space for one 2.5" drive (and nothing else really).

If the new Z's can accommodate 2 HDs inside, some major internal redesign had to be made. Does anyone know if this is the case or if maybe Sony is using some sort of two 1.8" Drives instead that they RAID together

Sony :: Tt

Apr 2, 2009

My boss is looking to change his VAIO-TZ laptop to the VAIO-TT model. The one issue he is concerned with is the performance.

His current VAIO is very slow when he has outlook and a couple of more apps open (nothing heavy though). It is 1.2GHz as is the TT model

Sony ::FW-390

Jan 21, 2009

I'm going to buy a FW-390 tomorrow morning and I want to know if the Full HD Screen is necessary or not.

I have heard that the X-Brite Eco's back lighting is uneven so some parts of the screen are dimmer than others which is simply unacceptable.

On the other hand I have heard complaints regarding the Full HD about the fonts being too small due to the resolution being too high on such a small screen ....

Sony :: F LCD

Jan 18, 2010

Is the Sony F LCD screen the same as the Dell XPS16?

At one time the Sony F was listed as an "RGBLED", same as Dell XPS16. They are also the same size/resolution.

I ask, because, I was at Best Buy this past weekend, and I found that the screen was very washed out looking. I confirmed it was resolution 1920, so it was surely their "Premium" LCD. Every review I read seemed to suggest the RGBLED of the Dell XPS16 was bright (almost obnoxiously so) and colorful. This F Model I reviewed truly did seem pale compared to other nearby monitors.

Sony :: VGN- TZ 72b

Nov 4, 2009

I am considering buying a secondhand notebook, Vaio VGN-TZ72b. It's gorgeous! All I would get are the notebook and its adapter. The guy bought it from Japan. These are all he has with him now.

BUT, I wonder if I would have a problem with drivers in the future when I clean-install it.

I heard every Vaio has a sort of recovery system that frees you from all concern about drivers

Sony :: FW 390 CTO

Jan 27, 2009

I have a few questions for those with the FW. I'm not a hardcore gamer, but I do occasionally play Warhammer Online, which is a little more graphically dependent that WoW.

My question is with my current specs, will my machine be able to handle it on low-mid range settings?

I also do not plan to order this RIG until sometime in March, are there any chances there will be so upgrades to it by that point .....

Sony :: TT Wi-Fi

Aug 11, 2009

I seem to be having a few problems with my wi-fi connection at home.

Up until yesterday it was working fine and i was getting great dl speeds and surfing without any problems. So all of a sudden the connection died out.

Normally i reset the connection and all is well. Well i tried that and no luck.

When i clicked to look for a network connection, nothing happens.

I click refresh and nothing happens. I did switch off the wireless button and turn it back on and restarted the laptop.

But i am still unable to get a connection. The router is fine as other laptops in the house seem to get a connection without any problems.
