Sony :: Setting Special Button Function? (Vaio Button)

Mar 20, 2010

I have an S series and when I press the silver VAIO button it mutes the sound.

I haven't found where to change the function of this button.

I've only removed the following Sony apps:

media gallery
pmb 5 and pmb plugins (click2disk/image optimizer/movie story)
vaio content metadata intelligent analyzing manager
vaio transfer support

Unfortunately I can't remember the default function of this button. Perhaps it was the media gallery? I'd like to change it anyhow.

Sony :: Vaio Touchpad Button Issue!

Mar 4, 2010

I bought a Sony Vaio VGN-FW51MF about a month ago with Windows 7 and its developed a weird fault both the touchpad buttons don't work except for being able to select one of the quicklaunch icons,

no other icons respond to either buttons either single or double click, I can use the click on the touchpad itself to get around but this has only happened in the last couple of days,

I've tried reinstalling the driver, system restore and even removing the battery for 10 seconds but they still don't work and under the settings they are configured correctly

Sony :: VAIO CS Series + AV Mode Button

Sep 24, 2009

I bought a Sony VAIO notebook from Japan (VGN CS52JB). With the help of this site I managed to convert it into Vista Home Premium English version which was originally Japanese.

Everything works perfect except the AV mode button and the capture button. (which worked fine originally)

I installed "VAIO Event Service" and "VAIO Launcher", which I thought need to have that functionality.

Do I need to install any other VAIO applications to get it working?

Sony :: Loose Touchpad Button On UK Vaio CR31

Oct 16, 2009

My Vaio is just out of warranty and it's always had a bit of a clicky odd left-button.

I've noticed that it is gradually getting worse so I'm expecting it to break soon. I should have had it done while the computer was in warranty, but I've heard bad things about their service centre, and they'd probably have charged me for the repair anyway. I did ask them about it toward the end of the warranty period and they wanted me to email them Admin passwords and then pick up the computer for an undisclosed period. I just didn't fancy it - my fault.

Anyway, I have several friends at work who are IT technicians and one of them will have a look. I haven;t found a service manual for the CR series yet, but I'm assuming the buttons are part of the mount for the trackpad and can either be replaced individually or the mount (or pad) can be replaced.

It's just over a year old and I'm thinking about boosting the RAM, HD and upgrading to W7, but on the other hand, I'm not convinced the machine is going to survive another 2-3 years...

Dell :: XPS 1340 Volume Control Button/missing WIFI Button

May 16, 2009

Ok after 3 days of using the 1340 I just realized the button on the top panel that you can use to increase/decrease volume stopped working. I had updated the latest drivers from Dell site but not sure if that is the reason.

Also non of the other buttons that are for DVD work either. And I know they were working when I got the laptop and only thing I have done is update with latest drivers.

HP/Compaq :: How To Remap/disable AnnoyingEnvy Special Function Keys

Apr 26, 2010

solution to remapping the annoying Envy special function keys

[url]

I bought an envy about a month ago and have been working through the usual new laptop quirks. There are plenty of hard-to-notice-until-bought pros and cons that I might pour over some time, but right now I'd just like to mention my findings with respect to the Envy Quick Launch keys that are located on the left of the keyboard.

By default, these keys open up a mail program, HP's MediaSmart SmartMenu, a web browser, printing, and the Windows calculator program. You can see them on the left side of the keyboard, with labels I'll explain in a moment:

There's no way in the HP software to customize the buttons, so I did a little bit of fishing around and found some useful information.

My original intent was to make a small program that would sit in the system tray and simply have a menu to disable all the buttons at will or re-enable them. The buttons are nice, but they aren't the most useful thing to have enabled when one is trying to play a full-screen game. I'd keep getting sent back to the desktop because I accidentally opened a calculator instead of pressing ctrl............

Sony :: Converter Setting Vaio Z690

Mar 10, 2009

My question:
I will be going to mainland China in 2 weeks. I bought a electrical converter. I am confused as to use the "High" or "Low" setting on the converter for my Z690?

Nothing on the Sony charger on wattage! I see a 19.5V Output and Input of 100-240V /1.5A and 50-60Hz

The converter/transformer has a high switch for appliances between 50 and 1650 watts and a low switch for equipment under 50 watts.

So if the Z690 charger is over 50W, I set the switch to High? I am just concerned that I will damage the laptop since the High goes up to 1650 watts?

Sony :: Removing The Speaker/S-button Cover

Jan 14, 2009

About three months ago I returned my laptop to be repaired for a hard drive malfunction, not a big deal since I had the two year accidental protection plan. When I got it back they gave me a new hard drive, but my video card switcher no longer worked! Please see the attached image: the slide switch is towards "Stamina" however the "Speed" is illuminated. The slideswitch seems to be locked in place, I cannot move it.

I only recently had time to tell Sony about this, to which they replied that they cannot help me, since it has been more than 30 days since the repair. I replied explaining that I had this fancy-shmancy protection plan, and perhaps it could be fixed under that umbrella; to which they tactfully retorted that they had (prematurely) terminated my contract, and that if I want, I can send it in and be charged for parts and labor for the thing that they broke. [/rant]

Anyway..I would love to fix this myself, since I am in fact on my own. I took off the keyboard and palmrest, and was unable to find out how to remove the cover that contains the S-buttons/slideswitches/power button/speakers. Is it in there with just clips? This region looks particularly delicate, not that the rest isn't, however I feel as thought I should be especially gentle. Ive checked all the disassembly/teardown links I could find on the sz series, but none seem to detail how to remove this one part.

Sony :: FN Button Not Working After Windows 7 Professional Upgrade VGN-NS20Z

Nov 24, 2009

I just did a clean install to Windows 7 professional 64-bit from Windows vista home premium 32-bit as my laptop is capable of running 64-bit version of windows.

However, i completely wiped out my drivers for my sony buttom functions such as the utility button for FN keys and also control centre, power management, event service and etc.

I have went to the Sony Europe esupport to get the drivers. Is there a particular order I need to follow while installing them since I read from somewhere that you need to install the drivers in a particular order for them to work since they are dependent. Also, many threads say to install the 'sony DLL utilities' or 'original utility package' file which does not apply to my Sony Vaio version. However, I did notice 'setting utility series' folder in the download driver section. Are they the same?

Sony :: Viao Any Parental Controls Useless "Splashtop Quick Start Button"

Dec 4, 2009

Sony Viao (NW series at least) have a quick boot feature for access to the internet without fireing up your operating system. Hit the special quick access button and away you go.

Guess what, if it is a computer for your child you cant even turn the button off or set it with a password. It resides on your motherboard any parental controls mcafee or otherwise are useless. The system for the quick access is by devicevm and is called splashtop.

how to control this, keep in mind this runs straight off the motherboard and windows is not fired up.
