I have BootCamp configured and my HD is partitioned into two. In Leopard, I display the Hard disk icons on the desktop, but now I have the Windows hard disk too, which is annoying. I never use it and it's annoying. If I go to the finder settings and turn off the "display hard disk" setting, all my HD icons disappear, even the Macintosh HD one. How can I remove only one HD icon (the Windows HD)?
Every time I press caps lock, change volume i got a notification pops up that often messes up the window focus. It's particularly annoying when trying to play games. Can I turn this off?
I searched around for other people having the same problem and the one solution I got was to change Hkey_Local_MachineSoftwareWidcommBTConfigGeneral KeyIndication to 0, but that's already set to 0 for me, and I'm still getting notifications. The solution with removing "lockkey.exe" is not working as well. I just don't have program like this.
I need to tunr off or remove my wifi touch button from my dv8t. I have spent the last month searching, removing, reinstalling, and skrewing with this laptop to get it off. nothing works. At the moment, my wifi turns itself on and off 28 time a minute on average.
I have already installed the keyboard driver that doesnt have the hp QLB on it. I have also removed the quick launch button drivers.... im at a loss now.
I need to remove it, but the screw on the bottom, which needs to be removed in order to take out the cd drive, has been damaged by me trying to unscrew it, and it will not turn, so the head is damaged and i cannot use a screw driver to turn it.
I have the Pavilion g7-2235dx with Windows 8.1 operating system. Nearly every automatic update messes up my ability to get on the internet. The only way I can connect is to uninstall all of the updates. The icons on my desktop also stopped working. When I click on them, it goes right back to desktop. Can't pin them to the taskbar either. The ones on the taskbar won't open by clicking on them either. Have to right click and tell it to open. Also problem getting my Norton anti-virus to open. Says it working but can't open it.
I found a small U-like crack around the bottom near the AC connector and the hinge are intact with the bottom housing.
I did not notice it was there after 10 days of use. Once I found it, I called Sony Customer Service to discuss about it , and I was connected to Tech Support for Repairing this unit. (I decided not to return it for credit since I already returned 4 Z690s for keyboard lifting issue for two, high-pitched noise, cosmetic damage and I got sick and tired of returning the VGN Z690)
here are some pics for the cosmetic damage (it is small but noticeable) and keyboard. [url]
Once the laptop arrived in the repair center, they gave me an estimate of $161.40 for replacement of bottom housing.
I should have sent it back for repair but I gave the repair center one last chance and tried to save some time on placing new order. I received the laptop on April 20th.
But high-pitched noise started to cry out for my attention... which did not existed before the repair.. I sent it for repair on 22th and it is still being diagnosed....
I bought a new Sony Vaio SR a couple of days ago and just received it today, everything is great except for an extremely obnoxious bar on the desktop, and I have no idea if it's something installed by Sony, or if it's a Windows 7 thing. I would just like it to be gone.
You can't right click it to bring up a menu, and image in the top right corner just shrinks it down and allows you to move it. But you can't drag it into the recycle bin or anything. And to make things better: you can only add stuff to it, you can't drag things out.
I've got an old hand-me-down VAIO PCG-XG29 on which the screen backlight has died. I'm a low-income disabled senior and I don't think it would be worth it to pay for a new backlight and then try to figure out how to install it.
So, I'd like to pull the hard drive from the VAIO and connect it to the USB port on a hand-me-down Toshiba laptop I was given recently. And then use the VAIO HD as a back-up drive for the Toshiba.
But I'm having trouble finding instructions on the web for how to remove the HD from the VAIO.
I've just bought a CW model and I've now uninstalled all bloatware and Sony software. But to my surprise I can not dim the display by using the Fn + F5/F6 buttons or see the OSD when I adjust the volume up or down, Which software needs to installed to control this?
Re HP Pavilion g7 Notebook PC, Windows 8, 64-bit. I want to be able to safely remove a USB thumb-drive without shutting down the computer. There is no icon for "Safely Remove Hardware" as on other computers I have. I have not been able to find the program or its icon using "search" or "find". It is not indexed in the user guide.
I've recently ordered a Sony CW with all the bells and whistles. I was quite reluctant at first to by a Sony, due to all the software etc that it comes pre-loaded with, but (my wife anyway) fell in love with its look and so we now have one on its way...
My question is, for a relatively novice IT person - although not a complete muppet! - the 'clean install' looks rather complicated to me and the risk of something going wrong rather scary! In this regard, can i not simply use the add/remove applications function in the control panel?
If this were an alternative otion, which programmes are the ones i dont need!
i purchased laptop vaio vgn-c36mj and the original windows "x64"freezes and i had to format and i downloaded vista x32 and it worked fine but the problem is the touch buttoms aren't working
note:i downloaded all the drivers for x32 from the site and still they don't work and i checked device manager and found nothing not installed and b4 my format there were cool wallpapers vaio and some applications i don't remember from vaio but didn't find them on the site
I have not had good luck with my SZ series notebooks in that the first one stopped responding to touch properly, and this one the left button needs quite firm presses to work correctly.
Is it possible to replace or fix just that one component or is it an assembly including the right button and the trackpad as well? Does anyone know the part number and where I might be able to find it along with a guide for replacing it?
I have a generally very nice install of Win7 Ultimate on a new SSD. But I can't control the screen backlighting or use the volume buttons. Other things I don't have that I could do without, but would be nice are the AV buttons. Not sure how well the stock Window power management is. I've tried loading a mess of the drivers from the TX850P/B Vista drivers page. There is a thread saying this the drivers work, but the drivers linked to in that thread to not match what is being discussed? Windows 7 Installation for Sony Vaio TX Series with ALL Sony Functions
The drivers from here: [url] install, but don't seem to do anything.
I have my destop wallpaper/background set to change every 30 minutes, pulling from the entire picture library (which is a few gigabytes). I have noticed that every now and then...say, maybe 10-20% of the time. The desktop background goes completely black after the switch. This happens whether the switch is set to Auto or I manually flip the switch (which makes sense, actually).
The only thing that restores the picture to view is logging off and back on. None of the following have any impact or cause the picture to display:Right-clicking on the desktop and selecting.....
