Sony :: Getting Qualcomm GPS To Work With Wifi On Vaio Z

Apr 6, 2010

Is there any way to enable the GPS on the Vaio Z with the Qualcomm chipset while maintaining wifi connectivity? I use Pdanet for sharing my 3g connection with my iphone and the only way to do this (other than using the cable, which isn't an option) is to use wifi.

I'd like to also have the ability to use the GPS functionality of the Z at the same time but because of a software restriction I can only use one or the other simultaneously.

I was wondering what the smartwi program actually does to enable GPS? Is it some sort of command it sends to the device?

I know on the earlier Z models with the Option chipset there was a command that you could use in hyperterminal to enable the GPS function, however it doesn't work for the Qualcomm and I'm unsure of whether terminal access is even possible with this device.

Sony :: Do You Enjoy Using The Vaio Z's Screen For Illustrator Or Photoshop Work

Aug 31, 2009

How many of you enjoy using the 13.1" (1600x900) screen on the Vaio Z for Illustrator or Photoshop? Do you all plug it into larger monitors before using any of these or other Adobe Creative Suite applications? I do a lot of complex Illustrator work that requires attention to detail, but also some light Photoshop work. Other than that, my use of the laptop would be limited to MS Office, Firefox, and iTunes.

Further, would you prefer a 14.1" (1440x900) screen for Adobe CS work, without an external monitor? Does the extra inch and lower resolution make much of a difference?

At this point, this is the only thing keeping me from hitting the order button on either a somewhat expensive, yet powerful Z (plus an extra monitor, mouse, and keyboard), or a relatively cheaper, albeit less powerful Lenovo T400S (without an extra monitor or other accessories).

(The T400S's beautifully thin (0.83") profile is also rather attractive in comparison to the Z's bulkiness.)

Sony :: The Official VAIO Blah Series Owners Threads Don't Work Too Well

Sep 14, 2009

Is it me, or do these massive Official VAIO blah Series Owners Threads not work to well?

They're tooo big and very dificult to find things buried in them.

I think forums work better when you have a specific problem and start a new thread on that... then people respond to help in that thread... And the conversation is so much less likely to go off on a tangent...

I.e. use these forums how they are normally used... One thread per subject. Most people are pretty good a adding the model in the subject if it's needed. This should make it a whole lot easier to browse thru and find stuff that it is right now...

Sony :: Vaio Z11MNB: Brightness Adjust Doesn't Work In SPEED Mode

Mar 12, 2010

I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on my Vaio Z11MNB. As Google told me there is a problem with the FN + F5/F6 brightness adjust in speed mode.

All Sony software ist installed correctly and in the newest version I found.

As in many threads mentioned I followed the right order. But I still cannot adjust the brightness in speed mode

This thread Problem with Vaio Z Windows 7 brightness lead me to the right graphic drivers I thougt... Okay these drivers[url] are for the ZD790 but this shouldn't matter it's the same 9300GS chipset...

The following sony software is installed:
SETTING_UTILITY_SERIES_5.1_5.1.0.11200
SFEP_DRIVER_SONY_8.0_10Q1_O_7_8.0.1.1
SPIC_DRIVER_8.0_09Q3_7_8.0.1.1
SONY_SHARED_LIBRARY_5.5_5.5.0.10160
VAIO_CONTROL_CENTER_4.1_4.1.0.10160
VAIO_EVENT_SERVICE_5.1FH_5.1.0.12010
VAIO_POWER_MANAGEMENT_5.0_5.0.0.11300
VAIO_SMART_NETWORK_3.1_3.1.0.11250

Another smaller problem: From time to time there is a yellow exclamation mark at the SD-Hostcontroller in the device manager. I've googled a lot but there seems to be no other driver than the windows included. VEN_1180&DEV_0822

Sony :: Vaio SZ 4 Series Fan Replacement And Wifi + Processor Upgrade (Win7 + Ubuntu Feedback)

Nov 25, 2009

I had replaced mobo on my dead SZ 4 series (don't ask why) and couldn't stop there since I was in the move thus consequently contemplated about possible upgrades. For now I settled for fan, WLAN card and CPU upgrade. If it works well, I might install SSD also.

1.Fan Modification

As you all proud SZ owners know, fan is very noisy on this machines so it made me think if there is any possible modification to reduce the noise. Since the BIOS is controlling it there is not much to do on the RPM part (in win at least, but more on that later) I settled for a fan and fan casing swap from SZ 4 to SZ 7 series.

In the photos you can see that fans, fan casings and heat-sinks are of different design. Besides design differences, voltage and the amperage are the same, 5V-300mA.

Only way was to install the fan and the casing of the SZ 7 heat-sink to my old one as one of the heat-sinks bolt bushings is off for a few millimeters.

There has to be some care exercised when prying off the fan casing, some heating was required from the aluminium side on three pins were casing is attached.

Not to be simple, the difference is also in the inlet hole. One on the SZ 7 heat-sink is bigger and off centre compared to SZ 4s. Had to do some filing there, to match it to the size of the new fan. Fan of SZ7 is not bigger, it is due to different design of the fan eye and its volutes...................

Acer :: New 1810T- Cannot Get The Wifi To Work

Feb 12, 2010

just got my son the 1810TZ and reinstalled with Win7 64Bit Ultimate.

I now cannot get the wifi to work no matter what. Thoughts? Is it an Atheros? I have installed the atheros package as well as all other drivers that say wifi with no luck...keep getting network cable unplugged and in system properties it identifies a network controller to which there are no drivers installed...

I thought Win 7 would pick up all poss hardware for the most part. I never had this prob on my 1810T-6188.

Acer :: Aspire V3-771g WiFi Don't Work

Jan 4, 2015

my problem is that WiFi literally don't work - i can't connect to any network.I'm using Windows 8 Pro.It's a i5 + geforce gt 630M version.When i'm installing an Atheros Drivers, it says that device is disconnected and drivers cannot be installed.

Wi-Fi is totally turned off - I mean the led isn't lightning, blinking or nothing - it's dead.

I can't use Fn + F3, it don't work at all.

I've installed LaunchManager, Fast Lane, Touch Pad and Dritek Rf button.

Now, in Fn + F3 i can turn Airplane mode, nor Wi-Fi.Is there any solution to turn this on? It stopped to work from day to a day - yesterday it works, now it isn't.

Done some formats, it don't even work on Windows 7 with Acer drivers. Maybe card is dead?

Lenovo Z470 P/Y/Z Series :: WiFi Doesn't Work At All (disabled)

Feb 26, 2014

Overnight, my Z470's wifi stopped work. The switch nor FN seems to turn the wifi on again, but  I dont think the device is damaged or something. I tried everything I could.
 
1) Update driver / Uninstall and update driver / delete and update driver
2) Try to work on  WLAN in services.msc but I couldn't find it in there
3) Some people says that could be the power management, I'm still trying to find the compatible version.
 
So, what else can I do? I don't wanna to format my machine!

Lenovo U/S Series :: U530 - Win 7 Downgrade / WiFi Doesn't Work

Aug 25, 2014

I have a new U530 I just bought.  I need windows 7, so I did a downgrade.  I downloaded all the Win7 drivers, and managed to make everything happy except no Wifi.  The Win7 drivers on the support site don't have the the hardware ID for this wifi card.  In windows 8 it shows Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter, with PCVEN)14E4&DEV_43B1&SUBSYS_062E17AA&REV_03, which does not show up in the .inf file for the drivers that install from the wl05w7.exe driver file.  Also the setup quits without graceful finish, even if I right click and do run as administrator.
 
I purchased two of these laptops, but one needs to work with Win 7.  I'm willing to switch out the wifi card if you have something that works with Win 7.

HP Envy Dv6 Networking :: WiFi Doesn't Work Properly On Battery

Nov 10, 2013

I am running Windows 8.0 (64bit) and my wifi is not working properly on Battery mode. On AC Adapter, it works 100% perfect but in battery mode, it always goes to Limited Connectivity. Repaired it but 25seconds later it gets the same problem. Limited Connectivity every single time. It's an endless cycle. Warranty has expired and I am not happy with it. 

Even if repaired, cannot open any website. Full 5 wifi bars but still the same result. Tried manually (TCP/IP Settings IPv4) but didnt work at all.

My wifi driver is Intel Centrino Wireless N 2230 ( 15.12.0.6 version updated from intel.com website). 

Product number C2Y46AV (HP ENVY DV6 NOTEBOOK PC)

Tried everything that I could possibly think off such as disabling Norton Firewall & Running windows firewall but still the same problem.

Updated everything from HP.

I tried a lot of different drivers - it's always the same: After the first installation and reboot it works, after the second boot, the device is disabled again.
