Sony :: VAIO VGN-SZ483N Drivers For Vista X64

Mar 18, 2009

finding drivers (Vista 64 bit) for my Sony VAIO VGN-SZ483N. I have the original Vista x86 drivers, but as expected most of them does not like to be installed on a Vista x64 O/S.

Is there a site that someone could recommend please, or has someone with an SZ4xx attempted this "upgrade" and is willing to share his/her experiences.

I have tested my gaming machine with x64 against x86 (both Vista) and could say with reasonable confidence that the x64 installation outperforms the x86 installation without a doubt. It would really be good to change the O/S to x64 from the OEM x86.

Sony :: Vaio Z Vista Clean Install With Drivers

Jul 17, 2009

if there was a way to do a clean install of Vista (preferably Ultimate 64-bit) on the Vaio Z and have functioning s1/s2 and speed/stamina and Wlan controls. I found the guide for 7, I was wondering if there was something like it for vista, or at least a place where i can get the drivers. My viao Z came with alot of "bloatware", and i'd like to have it snappy.

Sony :: Complete Set Of Vaio (AW Series) Drivers AND Instructions For Clean Install Of Vista

Jan 17, 2009

THIS IS FOR WINDOWS VISTA 64-BIT ONLY

My system is VGN-AW190.

There are already a couple of "guides" floating around that describe how to install a clean copy of Windows on Sony laptops.

The process is fairly simple and involves installing certain Sony software and drivers in particular order (according to Sony).

For FW series, the guide is here: Official Vaio FW Clean Vista Install Guide

When I first installed Windows Vista Ultimate, I had no problems getting everything to work EXCEPT for the following:

1) CompactFlash (JMicron JMB368 ExpressCard CF) driver is not available on Sony's web site. When inserting the card, it does not show up as a drive in Windows Explorer. After some time playing around, I figured the following 2 ways to make it work:

a. Insert your card, go to device manager and click on "scan for hardware changes"
b. Boot Windows while the card is inserted

2) SD card slot works but is not mapped to any drive. While Ricoh MS driver automatically creates a drive, there is no driver on Sony's web site that would do the same for SD slot.

Sony's support is useless to a point where they told me that the reason why my CF cards do not show up and there is no drive mapped to the slot is because the laptop does not support cards larger than 4GB (and I have only 8GB Sandisk cards) What a joke. I finally managed to get a 2nd tier technical guy on the phone who said that Sony does not provide CF drivers and that there is nothing they can do about it..........

Sony :: SZ483N RAM Upgrade

Oct 21, 2009

i was thinking about upgrading the ram in my vaio from 2gb to 4gb. from what ive gathered the Intel 945PM chipset is capable of supporting a max. of 4gb RAM, although i have also read on these forums that it's only 3gb. If it is indeed 3gb max. i presume that i will have to install 1x 1gb and 1x2gb to achieve 3gb and would therefore lose out dual channel. would i see a performance boost if this were the case? i want to install windows 7 x64 in the near future.

Sony :: VGN-TZ90S Vista To XP, Drivers

Jun 27, 2009

I'm trying to downgrade my wife's VGN-TZ90S from its default Vista to XP. I made a separate partition and installed XP then fixed the bootloader so it would load dual boot properly. The problem I'm having is I cant get a lot of the drivers working. For instance the graphics seemed to be straight forward, but none of the seemingly suitable intel gfx drivers work and when it tries to detect the integrated gfx via their website it says it doesn't recognise it.

getting all the hardware working in XP?

Sony :: No Drivers For Vista Ultimate On VGN-CR4000

Apr 10, 2010

I just installed Vista Ultimate on the hard drive partition of my Sony Vaio Notebook (VGN-CR4000). The other partition has Vista Home and is working fine as it came with the original laptop.

I am not able to see any wireless networks to connect to the internet on the Vista Ultimate OS. This is because I do not have the drivers.. right?

I tried to find drivers on the Sony website, but there are none for my model. What can I do?

Sony :: Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit Drivers On VGN-SR190

Oct 26, 2009

I own a vgn-SR190. I recently had HD failure, so had to buy new HD and reinstall vista. My original version of Vista was Business 32-bit. I didn't make a recovery disc. So I went out and bought vista ultimate 32-bit. Figured I wouldn't have problems, but I did.

I'm having the driver issues that someone in another thread talked about, when you get the problem with vaio mode switch and the battery issue. I downloaded the drivers for Vista Business, figured it would be the same for Ultimate. But I just read someone's post here that the home premium 32-bit drivers are the same as the ultimate 32-bit drivers. Is that true? if it is, I would just have to download the home premium drivers. I just wanted to know if anybody knows for a fact that the home premium drivers are the same as the ultimate drivers, seeing as the business drivers are obviously different.

Sony :: Fx64 Vista & Win7 Drivers And Utilities

Mar 23, 2010

Now that I've got a F series here's a new thread with tested and working drivers and utils for a clean install. The SZ and AW drivers threads are still going strong with 1500+ and 500+ downloads respectively.

Drivers and Utilites are from US & EU VAIO Support. All drivers have been extracted to bypass the model version check.

How to Install

To install extract the archive to a folder, e.g C:drivers.Open Device Manager and right click through each device selecting "Update Driver Software". See pic Install_Step_1.jpgSelect "Browse my computer for driver software". See pic Install_Step_2.jpgBrowse to C:Drivers and make sure "Include subfolders" is checked and click Next. See pic Install_Step_3.jpg

If an updated driver is found it will be installed. Don't worry if an updated driver isn't found. Some devices don't need updates.....................

Sony :: AWx64 Vista & Win7 Drivers And Utilities

May 9, 2009

Driver and Utilites below are from VAIO FTP, US/EU VAIO Support and Intel Download Center. VAIO don't always post the same versions on their EU and US sites and new drivers aren't listed for older models even though they are compatiable. Sony are also slow to make the latest Intel drivers available. All drivers have been extracted to bypass the model version check, usually found on drivers from the US site.

How to Install

Most of the folders only contain the driver and *.inf files. I prefer to install drivers this way to prevent the installation of software I'll never use.

To install extract the archive to a folder, e.g C:drivers.Open Device Manager and right click through each device selecting "Update Driver Software". See pic Install_Step_1.jpgSelect "Browse my computer for driver software". See pic Install_Step_2.jpgBrowse to C:Drivers and make sure "Include subfolders" is checked and click Next. See pic Install_Step_3.jpg

If an updated driver is found it will be installed. Don't worry if an updated driver isn't found. Some devices don't need updates.

Sony :: Should I Be Using New Drivers For More Vaio Z

May 10, 2009

I have a Vaio Z690 and am using the default 174.49 Nvidia drivers which sony provides. What I am wondering is if there is a better driver I should be using then this one. I have read My discoveries on Vaio Zís Hybrid Graphics although could someone point me in the right direction of which driver I should be using, that has been verified that will still allow me to keep all the features such as the stamina vs speed mode switch, shortcut buttons, etc with everything working 100%.

Aug 21, 2009

My problem is that I bought a VAIO laptop (VGN-FW31M) and it came with windows vista. So I formated it and installed Windows XP PRO SP∑3.

(I had the common SATA driver problem but I managed to solve it).

The problem comes when I try to install any driver, even the CHIPSET driver.
I get a message saying:

"This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software. Setup will exit"

I got all the drivers from the sony official site.

Sony :: Vaio FW- To Install Newest GPU Drivers

May 1, 2009

I just bought a new sony vaio laptop. I wanted to install the newest 9.4 ATI drivers for the gpu. So heres what happened:

- Downloaded newest drivers from ati official site
- Went to the uninstall programs section in control panel, closes thing I could find to ati drivers was "Ati catalyst install manager", so i uninstalled it and it uninstalled ati drivers within the process.
- Then restarted the laptop
- Then installed newest drivers with the catalyst control center.
- Restarted laptop
- After the restart the highest available resolution was 1400x1050, I couldn't find the ati control centre and can find no evidence of the laptop even recognizing the ATI GPU after the restart.

I've gone through this sequence twice now and each time the drivers haven't been updated properly and the same thing has happened.

I've restored the system so now I have the 8.4 drivers on my gpu but I really can't figure out how to update them,

Sony vaio
-2.66GHz core 2 duo
-Ati HD 3650 512mb GDDR3
-4GB DDR2RAM
-Vista 64-bit
-320GB HDD
-1920x1080 Full HD display

Sony :: Vaio VPCZ11Z9E Nvidia Drivers Slows Down

May 6, 2010

My question:

What i have;
I have, as the title sais, a Vaio VPCZ11Z9E with the hybrid graphic system. The drivers i use are the latest ones published by Sony.

The problem;
When i have my computer on stamina mode ie. not using the nvidia geforce card and i right click my desktop to reach the meny for personalize, create new folders etc the meny shows up instantly, no delay at all.

When i have the switch to speed, using my nvidia geforce card(which always use while at work and plugged in) the right click on desktop has delay/lag to show the meny, the windows 7 thinking animation shows up, for up to 3 seconds before it actually pops up.

My conclusion is of course, that it has to do withe nevidia card/drivers.

Are there any solution to this? Does anyone else have the problem? Should i do a total reset with the recovery tool?

Sony :: Windows 7 32bit Drivers For VAIO FZ240E

Nov 18, 2009

I bought a used Sony Vaio Laptop today.

I live in the Caribbean so its usually a little more expensive but over all I think it was a fair price.

But I really really love this laptop, the guy even put in a brand new western digital 320 GB HDD in it because this laptop was giving problems before so he decided to replace the HDD.

I am just concerned about the LCD lamp life and I hope this lappie lasts me another 3 years or more. I heard SONY quality in their laptop has depreciated.

Anyways the WEB CAM is not working because it needs drivers and when I use the short cut for screen brightness isn't working. I am not sure if its a fault with the laptop itself though. Because when I use shortcut for speaker mute with the fn key they work. All except the screen brightness.

I keep getting errors every time I try to install the windows vista drivers.

Also how do I recalibrate the battery for this? I think the battery is having issues charging and keeping a steady charge the estimation it gives is very out of alignment so to speak.

Sony :: ATI Catalyst Drivers Fail To Install On Vaio FW11M

Feb 2, 2009

I have an FW11M which I formatted when I bought it, put on vista ultimate and after a weekend of fiddling, got all of the devices detected with correct drivers installed.

Anyway, now I would like to update the graphics drivers to the new ATI 9.1 catalysts except that every time I try, I run the setup, it appears as though it is working and then says installation complete...

however, it changes nothing. Device manager still reports the old driver version and the catalyst control centre does not run

Sony :: Vaio, Vista, And The Universal Extractor

Jun 11, 2009

I keep getting a message stating that any updates for my drivers on a VGN - C25G are not intended for use with my model (all details are correct). So, I need to resort to the universal extractor to get my FN keys, Camera and Bluetooth working on this vaio...

I have never used the universal extractor before, and am uncertain where i would need to place the extracted files once the UE has finished
