Sony :: New Vaio Owner- Regarding SD Cards & Mem Sticks

Mar 26, 2010

I have a question for the new Z owner with 128GB SSD.

I have been thinking about returning the unit in exchange for one with a larger SSD due to the drives lower capacity.

After reformatting and installing win7 Ultimate Office 2007, and some other things I deem as required Iam left with approximately 76 GB this includes BFBC2.

I have a few more games and some benchmark tools I like to install etc.

I would like to hear a few opinions on SD Capacity (SDHC) or Sony memory cards as an alternative for additional storage rather than returning it for the higher capacity SSD models and getting nailed with a 15% restock fees.

Do SD cards or the Sony mem Stocks have any short comings?

Sony :: New Vaio TT Owner

Mar 14, 2010

I just purchased a tt290yab with 1.4ghz blueray and all the trimmings. So I though I would post and introduce my self...

After owning a vaio P as my sole machine for a year this thing flys even with vista installed and untweaked.

I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice, things I could tweak... Best video playing software etc.. ?

Also my laptop came refurbished and has the noise cancelling capability but I don't have the headphones. Anyone know where I can get some? Or the part number for them so I could call sony? I tried the ones from my vaio P but they dont work.

Sony :: New Vaio Z11 Series Owner

Mar 31, 2010

I just received my new Vaio Z11 laptop a few days ago. I'm very satisfied with my purchase as it's my first ultra portable laptop. I have the i7-620M version with the 1920x1080 screen and 256GB SSD (4x64gb).

I have a few concerns though:

First, Is it safe that I make a clean install of W7? My Drive came with a single C Drive partition but I'd like to partition my drive into C and D drives. Are there specific tools to use for SSD's?

Second thing is regarding the Fingerprint Scan. I have been able to apply it on Windows Logon, and have also set it for Power On mode, but unfortunately when I turn on my laptop it doesn't ask me for the finger print it only does that at the Windows Logon screen. I have checked the bios and saw nothing that has Enable finger print or something of that sort, there was just a clear finger print option.

Sony :: New Vaio Ns Owner- Apps

Mar 8, 2010

I just got a vaio ns with a pentium dual core t3200 @ 2ghz. I just did a fresh install of windows 7 so theres no SONY apps in there. I'm having trouble with notebook hardware control. It doesn't detect the voltage, it's basically showing ... and so I can't undervolt it and I really want to. Also when I installed NHC, it seems to take over the original settings somehow and always dims the screen to 0% when I start up the PC.

I'd also like to know if vaio's have a way to enter the bios during boot?

What are some recommended apps/drivers for me to download for this laptop? It comes with a gma4500mhd. Do I have to download drivers or does it pretty much come or auto download with the windows 7 updates?

Sony :: Extended Battery Sticks Out

Why is it that the sony extended batteries come out from the bottom of the laptop(the z-axis) instead of out the back(y-axis), I kinda feel the Lenovo approach towards extended battery makes a lot more sense...

Jan 4, 2009

I am in the process of building a new del on the website, is has really been sometime since I did this and there seems to be alot of new technology that i am not familier with...

the first one is the graphics card.. i have 4 options...

Mobile Intelģ Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD With Express Card

And what card would be better for some gaming.. "i am a command and conquer addict"...

Sony :: SZ Memory Card Reader VGP-MCA20 Can't Read My SD Cards

Mar 9, 2009

Whenever I insert an SD card or Sony Memory Stick in the memory card reader (VGP-MCA20) of my SZ, the computer doesn't recognize it. If I double click on the removable drive, it hangs the computer. I tried 16MB and 512MB SD Cards and 16MB Sony Memory Stick. All of them don't work. I tried them with my FW notebook and they work fine. So, it is not the media problem.

I tried to restore from Recovery DVD with Windows XP, install with Windows Vista and I still have the same problem.

Acer :: Aspire 1650 Ram Sticks

Jan 19, 2009

I need to upgrade the RAM on an Acer Aspire 1650. I used CPU-Z to check and it told me it is PC2 4300 DDR2 ram. All nice till this point.

I happened to have two 512MB DDR2 sticks around and tried to install them there, but no luck.

They don't FIT.

I checked 2 other laptops and they all use the same memory sticks like the spare I have and none have the same size as the Aspire in question.

Checking online, all DDR2 PC2 4200~4300 SO-DIMM sticks I can find are "200pin", but the spare stick I have is ALSO 200pin.

How can I tell if a certain memory will be compatible with this model? Does ACER use some "very very very specific" type of memory?

Acer :: Travelmate 2450 Bsod Errors With 2x1gig Sticks

Oct 23, 2009

I'm using the notebook right now, waiting for a blue screen. None so far with a single 1 gig stick. I tested both stick's by themselves no errors, as soon as I use both i get bsods left and right.

Both are Pny 667 1 gig sticks, But i was cheap and since i had a stick already, i snagged another off Ebay. I guess they weren't well matched.

I'm going to test both slots and make sure there's no errors. So i guess it's a lesson not to be to cheap and just buy in pairs.

One more thing i might try is to lower the shared video memory, i noticed that some programs are reporting to much memory allocated to video.

Lenovo U/S Series :: Some USB Sticks And MMC Slot Not Working After Restore On U530

Sep 15, 2014

I have a U530.  I had to restore the laptop to factory configuration.  However, after the restore the MMC slot and the USB slots do not work properly.  The MMC slot does not work at all.  The USB slots will work with newer sticks (3.0?), but not older sticks that I have (which are properly recognized by all other PCs I have running 8.1).  I went to the support site and installed the "latest" drivers, but they did not resolve the problem.  I tried installing the latest firmware, but it returned "LoadImage() Failed! Access Denied.  Error:  Update BIOS Failed! Unload Image() Failed! Invalid Parameter.  InsydeH20 - Secure Flash. Error: Firmware update failed!!! Please press any key to reset system......"
 
I've already spent the time to reinstall all my software and really do not have the time to try another reset to factory configuration. How to get my MMC and USB slots working properly.

Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Left-click Button Sticks

How do I go about getting a new touchpad from Dell on an in-warranty laptop?  My left-click button incessantly sticks.  It is not a software issue, and I am well within my warranty.  I have already done the software trouble-shooting.  It is a hardware issue and I'm relatively certain I need a new touchpad.

Lenovo W520 ThinkPad W Series :: Mix Two Different Pairs Of Memory Sticks?

Jun 10, 2009

I have 2 x 4GB sticks of G.SKill F3-8500CL7D-8GBSQ DDR3-1066 PC3-8500 CL7-7-7-20 SO-DIMM.
 
They worked perfectly as the only memory sticks in a W500, but I'd like to install them in addition to the 2 x 4GB Lenovo memory sticks that came with the W520.
 
Is this going to work and be stable at all? After reading the W520  specs, I'm still uncertain about the memory speeds of the two different sets of sticks and if that is a real compatibility issue. I don't know enough about memory specs.

Dell :: New E6400 Owner Like It!

Apr 7, 2009

I posted a few times in other threads and received a lot of good advice on which laptop to buy. This led me to the e6400 which I ordered from the outlet.

Received it over the weekend and got it up and running. Though not as stylishly groundbreaking as some, it has a nice sleek, cool look.

It is a business laptop afterall. I will agree with others on the speakers, pretty poor, even for a business laptop. But, other features are nice.... backlit keyboard, screen, keyboard layout/size

HP/Compaq :: New3510nr Owner

Apr 17, 2009

After researching a portable laptop with good battery life, and fast processer speed I choose the best buys blue label 3510nr laptop. The screen was gorgeous, and I bought it to get adapted to vista. One the volume of the speakers is clear for a laptop this size inside windows looking at videos or playing music baqck but strangely enough when viewing DVD movies the volume is very quiet. When the computer first started a DVD is went from 0 to ffering several numbers for US language and it plays in US mode but I wonder what this was. Also my movies downloaded from utube and various sources throughout the years ran fine on XP and xp PRO but 50% only will play in AVI not the movie in windows media player. Also I am perplexed at how strange the new Media player is compared with earleir versions that ran under XP. Waht can I do about seeing my movies, and possibly whats up with the sound as Ive checked all settings in control panel. Im scared to even call HP as their customer service horribible.

Dell :: Vista Owner With Flicker

Dec 2, 2007

I have had a major problem with my M1710 having a fit when running on batteries!

theres a slight flicker when running aero on vista, but the computer has a major fit when running Studio 11 from pinnacle.

have had a great deal of discusion with dell and Tech support with out success.
they suggested new mother board and 7950gtx card!

anyway through reading alot of posts on the forum i tried increasing the clock speeds of the 2d setting on the graphics card

the core is now set at 150 and memory 200

i tried it at 100/150 as suggested on another post.

However 150/200 has created significant performance increase when editting on pinncle studio 11! and vista areo runs smooth as silk

Increasing the Clock speeds cures the flickering problem!
