i have a Sony aw290 laptop and i have install anew clean windows but when i try to update any firmware update its give error is there is away to do that with out reinstalling the original operation system ?
I recently bought a Sony Bluetooth mouse and on the packaging it says that the provided batteries could last for three months. I'm confused on how this is supposed to be used. Does it mean that it will last three month even if I leave it on and connected all the time? I have my laptop docked and it stays on 24/7. If I leave this mouse connected with the laptop, will it still last three months?
In the mouse settings window of the Control Panel, under Bluetooth, the mouse shows only 85% charge remaining after only 4 days of the type of usage described above!
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")
My 15" 2.8GHz mbp works fine (only had it for 2 days now) with the stock 500gb hitachi hdd. BUT if I try to install a hitachi travelstar 320gb 7200rpm 3.0 Gb/s hdd it freezes occasionally with the color wheel of death!
So i recently upgraded my Aspire 5560g to Windows 8.1. I liked it but it seemed to have lost my drivers in the process (my track pad scrolling didnt work and my Dolby audio origram was gone). Â I went to Â for the drivers and decided to start with a firmware upgrade (9545 for hard disk performance).Â Â After the computer rebooted, I entered the dreaded Windows 8.1 boot loop. It would say "Your PC ran into problems..." with the bluescreen, then turn off. Then it would attempt the Automatic repair, and fail again, then restart the cycle. Â I wasn't able to even get into my BIOS until I cleared my CMOS, now at least I can get into BIOS. Â I created a bootable USB for Windows in hopes I could do a clean install, but even when trying to boot from a USB I get the blue Windows 8 screen, "Your PC ran into problems..."Is there a way I can undo the firmware update, it seems like the culprit, doesn't it?Â Â EDIT: I've read that the Windows boot loop may be caused by outdated drivers. Think this could be the problem after I did the firmware update? How can I install the drivers without being able to boot into Windows?
Anyone here has a Magic Mouse working with the new Z?
Because i do and have this kind of Problem: When using the normal Windows Driver, ist works perfectly, fast, responsive, no lag at all!
Unfortunately the scrool doesn`t work with this drivers.
So i installed the "hacked" one from the net. Installation was easy and fast. Drivers do update and suddenly everything works including vertical, horizontal, and 360° scroll. Zoom with ctrl-button works too.
BUT!.....The Mouse suddenly became completely unusable because of lag. sometimes it runs nice for 5 minutes and then it lags. sometimes it lags fpr just a few seconds and sometimes for minutes. its just unusable.
I found some points but for me they seem unlogical. Here we go, let me explain:
1. The WLAN is 2,4ghz and interrupts the bluetooth. people say to switch it to 5ghz. --> unlogical because i have 2,4ghz wlan and with the normal windows driver(hid) it works perfectly via bluetooth. if the frequency is the problem then it would lag all the time no matter what driver, right?
2.internal Bluetooth to weak --> unlogical because again it works with the windows driver. same hardware here so this is not possible.
I also deletetd the foxconn drivers and let windows install the normal drivers. but same thing happens. the hacked driver lags.
Since updating the firmware on my LG drive (GSA-T50L) on every restart I get a message that Windows (Vista Home Basic) cannot install the driver. I click the second option, which is to "remind me later." I have to do this every time I boot up. The CD ROM is actually working OK as far as I can tell, but I'm still getting the error message. Device Manager doesn't list any driver, and trying to update it through device manager is unsuccessful.
I'm using firmware rev. SC05. I wondered if downgrading back to SC04 would cure the problem, but after hundreds of searches I cannot find the firmware anywhere on the Internet. Why it's so rare, I have no idea.
Maybe the problem has been caused by myself -- I deleted the drivers folder from the recovery partition some time ago to gain a couple of GB of drive space. However, I was under the impression that the CDROM uses Windows' own driver, so maybe this isn't the problem? I'm absolutely stumped. Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this issue?
FWIW, I have recovery discs, only I'm unsure about using them because I don't want to wipe the entire system and start from scratch. If it's possible to restore only the missing drivers folder from the recovery partition this might be a good start.
Applied 7CCN35WW over the 34 firmware. Veriface stopped working, says there's no camera present even though camera is present in Device manager. Skype is not working either, says camera is used by another process even after a fresh restart.
This is specifically occurring on Z590, but may be there in all Z's.
If you have a USB mouse plugged in, and you go to sleep mode, and then disconnect the USB mouse, then when the laptop wakes up again, the trackpad does not work. If you plug-in the mouse at this point, the mouse works fine, but the trackpad is still entirely disabled. Vaio Control Center indicates the trackpad is still enabled, but no response at all from trackpad.
If you unplug the mouse, go to sleep, and wake up, the trackpad now works fine.
I am not sure when this bug was introduced, but can anyone replicate it as well? The trackpad seems to get disabled upon wakeup from sleep if the USB mouse was unplugged AFTER going into sleep mode.
My TZ11's left mouse button has gone a bit 'soft' and it's a bit unreliable now, so using the computer is becoming very frustrating. I can see that it's pretty straight forward to take the keyboard off and get to the trackpad and mouse assembly but I need to know where to get the spare part in the UK.
best source of this part? And also the part number?
Do I need to buy a combined trackpad and mouse assembly or can I buy just the micro switches for the mouse?
I have a VGN-Z51WG-B laptop (Win7 x64). Since new the Vaio update tells me there are "No updates" available. If however I check manually via the esupport website there are numerous updates for my model which should be available via the Vaio Update Tool. Is there some security settings blocking detection? I have reduced IE8 Security down to "medium".
I bought yesterday a Sony Vaio VGN-NW20EF/S. I think its excellent but i was told it has bluetooth, it seems to have bluetooth option when I press star and go in to startup folder but it does nothing. I can go to the program files WIDCOMM, and the bluetooth software is in there. BTtray and other files. I also have bluetooth exchange folder. Does anyone have this model and any idea if it has bluetooth,it seems to have....
