Sony :: To VGN-FW Owners, Is Your Power Input Port Wobbly

Jul 5, 2009

So ensuring i didnt get a defective device and while i'm still within my 14 day return period I was wondering if other people with the FW series (I have the 465J) version have a little give on the piece on the laptop where you plug it in to charge (top left of the laptop) and if you press it on the top part of it, it sorta pushes in a little bit. I also noticed its easily scratched as a I have a small scratch right where the the screen touches that part when closing the laptop (look at it from above as you slowly close your screen youll notice a little piece sticking out from the screen that can scratch the power input piece).

After rereading my own post I think people might confuse the power input to the power adapter, I'm referring to the place where you plugin your laptop located on the top left of the laptop near the hinge.

Sony :: Vaio FW Or SRI- Collective Input

Jun 26, 2009

I am definitely going to purchase either a Sony FW or SR series laptop. While I know that they are basically two completely different machines, I wanted to see if all of you helpful good Samaritans would steer me in the right direction.
The two configurations I am looking at are such:


But a CTO model with the Blu Ray drive from the SonyStyle store

My usages will be the following
-Light AutoCAD
-Decent amount of Photoshop
-Basic video creation and editing
-Multimedia Hub (music, movies, etc)

I will not be schlepping the laptop around too much at first, but there is a good possibility that I will need to carry it a lot in the near future. Also, I have an extra Dell 20" IPS panel lying around that I will probably use as my main monitor, so screen size is not much of an issue. My questions are such:

1)Do any SR owners use it a lot for video and photo editing? If so, how does it perform.

2)Is the HD 4570 that is the top graphics option in the SR enough of a vid card for my uses? If it isn't, then I will probably have to go with the FW series. According to, the 4650 is something like 40% more powerful than the 4570.

3)Exactly how cumbersome to move is the FW? It is a rather large laptop, though not especially heavy. I checked the measurements and it barely fits into my current shoulder bag, and it might not in the end if I decide to get a laptop sleeve for extra padding. I would probably have to get another laptop bag if the FW with a sleeve is too large.

4)Also, cost is somewhat an issue. The FW can be had for less than $1,000 total (-$100 Rebate and Bing Cash), while the CTO SR will run me around $1,700. Is a 35% price premium worth the level of portability that the SR will afford me in conjunction with my listed uses, or should the superior video card and lower price automatically deem the FW the wiser choice.

Dell Latitude D830 :: D/Port Replicator Power Light Flashing Green And Orange

Jan 28, 2010

One of my users brought me this issue the other day. He is using a Latitude D830 laptop with a D/port docking station.  With or without the laptop docked, The power button on the docking station flashes Orange and Green when powered.    I've swapped power bricks for the dock.   The laptop still seems to charge while being docked.   After swapping the dock, the new dock is fine.

What might be causing it?  Is the dock dead?  Could it be a failed port on the docking station?

Sony :: Vaio AW Owners

Mar 6, 2009

I have currently owned a total of 3 Vaio noteooks. All except one "CR" were made in Japan. I am wondering if the owners of the pre-built AW's could look under their laptops and tell me where they were built.

The CR that I have was build in China. I has had several booting issues among other things. I have noticed that the higher end Vaio books are made in the land of the rising sun

Sony :: Z-series Owners

Jan 27, 2009


1. What kind of performance issues have any of you seen in the two different Z-series notebooks, specifically with light gaming? I know the Z540 is a 128MB card and the Z590 is a 256MB 9300GS. I was curious if there was any real downside to the 128MB card?

2. Have any of you heard any rumors about when the new CTO Z-series will be available?

The reason I ask both is that I am looking at a newly released Z-series on Best Buy's website:


Basically looks like a Z540 CTO with good options. My overall goals with the machine are writing code, basic web stuff and of course, WoW.

WoW is my biggest concern with the 128MB card because I have had a 9300GS before and it was pretty poor in the implementation and playing WoW. I was curious if anyone had impressions on the way the 128MB card handles WoW now on the Z-series and if the machine above would work or if I would need to wait for the "newer" Z's to come out and get the larger RAM card.

I suggest you try this before voting if you did not already tweaked your monitor profile: Vaio_F11 Monitor Profiles Roundup & US glossy vs. EU Premium Displays.

From the FAQ: "You may view the current results for a poll before you vote by clicking the 'View Results' link". Click any blue number to see all the user names.

So non-Vaio_F11 owners, don't skew the results as we can see your user name.

Sony :: Z Owners With 1600x900 Resolution...

Mar 16, 2010

How do you handle 1600x900 resolution on a 13.1" screen?

I haven't seen it yet in person, but it seems like it would make everything VERY small (text, images, menus, etc).

Do you change the DPI? Do you modify any other settings? Do you get a stronger contact lens prescription?

Sony :: F&AW Owners/GPU Enthusiast From A Prospective Buyer

Jun 6, 2009

I've been comparing the new FW equipped with an hd 4650 and the current AW and am quite torn. I've assembled a few questions to help me figure out which model suits me best. I intend to replace my desktop which I primarily use as a multimedia and gaming am willing to settle for the FW's 16.4 inches only if the 4650 places its performance well over the AW's.

1.) Is there still any risk involved with the 9xxxM series (specifically the 9600m gt)?

2.) Are benchmarks for the 9600m gt reliable/universal (or would the AW's specs enhance its performace)?

3.) Given: P8700 2.53ghz, 4gb ddr2, 7200rpm hdd, and 1080 display in both; is the hd 4650 of the new FW worth the loss of 2" and the sleek build of the AW equipped with the 9600m?

4.) Is the above config suitable for adobe's cs4 products, orange box, ut3, sixth gen console emulators, and occasionally wow all in high settings?..................

Sony :: Calling All PCG-F Series PIII Owners (memory)

Mar 6, 2010

I have a PCG-F580K running Win2k and Ubuntu in a dual-boot config. It runs great for most things I need it for but could use a little more memory. According to Sony, I am maxed out at 256MB but I believe it could take more. The PCG-F580K uses the 440BX chipset, which accepts 256MB modules, but only certain low density types. These should theoretically be the same ones used by Thinkpads of the same vintage. I will point you to [url] for reference. Can anyone confirm or deny the ability of my Sony to use 324 or even 512MB of RAM?

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...

I have found solutions such as the Matrox DualHead2Go box and what not.. But i was wondering if i can get the sony z docking station and use that for dual output. Unlike some other threads that i've read my situation would be to plug the hdmi on the laptop to monitor1 and the dvi from the docking station to monitor 2.

Sony :: SR Series Docking Port And Heat-related

Jun 24, 2009

I have an SR-190 CTO which I've had since last September. Every time I take the laptop off the docking port, it is scorching hot. Has anyone else noticed this? And when I took the laptop off tonight, the battery was at < 10% even though it had been on the dock for a couple hours. I also cannot for the life of me remove the battery...I'm really hoping it's not melted to the laptop or something.

Has anyone else had related issues with the SR docking port? I'm still in the 1-year (though I also have an extended warranty), but this sort of problem really )@#%*s me off.
