Sony :: Vaio F Series I7 Processor

May 2, 2010

I just got a new sony vaio F-series with the new i7, it was really fast, took me about 2 minutes to get to startup screen and log in. But all of sudden after two weeks it started to slow down

( I didn't download much, and I scanned with both avg and adaware and no viruses or problems found).

Also, my gadgets instead of appearing on the sidebar like normal appear in the middle of the screen randomly.. I am extremely pissed because I have heard such good review

Sony :: Vaio SZ 4 Series Fan Replacement And Wifi + Processor Upgrade (Win7 + Ubuntu Feedback)

Nov 25, 2009

I had replaced mobo on my dead SZ 4 series (don't ask why) and couldn't stop there since I was in the move thus consequently contemplated about possible upgrades. For now I settled for fan, WLAN card and CPU upgrade. If it works well, I might install SSD also.

1.Fan Modification

As you all proud SZ owners know, fan is very noisy on this machines so it made me think if there is any possible modification to reduce the noise. Since the BIOS is controlling it there is not much to do on the RPM part (in win at least, but more on that later) I settled for a fan and fan casing swap from SZ 4 to SZ 7 series.

In the photos you can see that fans, fan casings and heat-sinks are of different design. Besides design differences, voltage and the amperage are the same, 5V-300mA.

Only way was to install the fan and the casing of the SZ 7 heat-sink to my old one as one of the heat-sinks bolt bushings is off for a few millimeters.

There has to be some care exercised when prying off the fan casing, some heating was required from the aluminium side on three pins were casing is attached.

Not to be simple, the difference is also in the inlet hole. One on the SZ 7 heat-sink is bigger and off centre compared to SZ 4s. Had to do some filing there, to match it to the size of the new fan. Fan of SZ7 is not bigger, it is due to different design of the fan eye and its volutes...................

Jan 11, 2009

My model is Sony Vaio Z12GN and it's using Intel Core

My fiancee's is Sony Vaio Z26GN and it's using Intel Centrino

Is it any different?
Weird thing is that I did a fresh installation on both and even though mine is 2gb RAM and hers is 3gb RAM, mine still seems to run faster.

Apr 14, 2009

several people here who have been able to upgrade their SZ's to x9000 processors.

Basically the x9000 is my first choice, x7900 is second and t9500 is 3rd and I want your advice as to what to do, and will I need to do any modding to put these processor in my SZ670?

Sony :: (Old) VAIO Z BD Drive Fit In (New) VAIO Z Series

Mar 27, 2010

I'm wondering if the Blu-ray optical drive (Panasonic UJ-232A) of the (old) VAIO Z series will be able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series? I would really appreciate it if anyone is able to answer my question.

The reason I'm asking is because I'm seriously thinking of selling my VAIO Z690 & just buying the base Sony VAIO Z (VPCZ112GX/S). I may just be able to afford that base model & the icing on the cake will definitely be the UJ-232A drive being able to fit into the (new) VAIO Z series & work.

Sony :: Vaio CW Or Vaio E Series

Mar 22, 2010

Am planning to get a sony laptop for me. The design simply rocks I am getting mixed reviews about cw and E series. But i made up my mind to get one.

My budget is aroung 40000rupees. Thats around 800$. So suggest me a better one between these two for occasional moderate and less(mosltly) demanding games. I dont care whether its 14 or 15 inch.

Am looking at lower end versions of both the models.

Only difference is CW uses Nvidia Geforce 310 and the E series uses some Radeon 5000 series one. CW has 14 inch screen whereas E series has a 15.5 inch screen. In the models which i am looking at both have matte finish and both has WXGA:1366 x 768 VAIO Display.

which one should i go for. whether the screen quality will be on par to Inspiron one atleast? ( I dont need HD).

Sony :: Vaio F11 Or Vaio E Series

Apr 9, 2010

im planning on using the laptop for videos, photoshop and a bit of gaming, maybe even a bit more gaming :-)

The Vaio F Series only has 330M Nvidia Graphics Card with i7QM and up to 8GB of Ram and up to 256GB SSD.

The E Series has ATI 5650 (a less powerful version, reduced clock speed) combined with a i5 520M with up to 6Gb of Ram and up to 500GB of HDD ? Why can i not choose SSD ?

Sony :: Vaio S Series

May 17, 2010

I recently bought a Sony Vaio VPCS117GGB.
Specs: Core i5 520, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, Geforce 310, 2Kgs.

Coming from a Macbook Pro this laptop is quite similar to the unibody macbooks (except the size and battery life). However there are a few annoyances with this Sony.

1) When i close the lid the notebook goes to sleep, however when I open the lid, unless I press any button, windows does not wake up. Is there a way to enable this .....

Sony :: Vaio S Series CTO

Mar 7, 2010

Finally pulled the trigger on a Vaio S Series CTO from SonyStyle Japan. I had a limited budget ($1500), and with the really poor dollar/yen exchange rate right now, couldn't load it up like I wanted.

Still, looking forward to the expected delivery date of late March. Here's what I got for $1,630:

- Core i5-540M (2.53GHz)
- SSD 128GB
- Windows 7 Ultimate (Need this to switch the Japanese OS to English)
- 2GB RAM (DDR3 1066) (Skimped here to keep the initial price down. Will probably add more later.)
- Intel Integrated Graphics (Don't do any gaming)
- DVD Super Multi-Drive (Optical Read/Write DVD Drive)
- 3-yr. Basic Warranty.....

Sony :: HDD In Vaio Z Series

Mar 16, 2010

The new Sony Vaio Z series only comes with SSD option for North America. Is there anyway to either replace the SSD with a HDD or to add a HDD after purchase? I need plenty of internal storage and even the 255GB SDD option in Z116GX/S will be insufficient.

Sony :: Vaio X-series

Oct 25, 2009

does anyone have or can find additional info on Sony Vaio X-series? it's scheduled to launch really soon sometimes next month but there's not much info on it other than initial specs and showoff pics. what i'm specifically asking for is the the HD form factor (1.8" or 2.5"?) and how many free memory slots? since it comes standard with a 64gb SSD, my assumption is that it can only take 1.8" form factor since sony most likely would not put a full blown SSD into something like this for two reasons: 1) chassis is too thin to fit a standard 2.5" drive, and 2) will run on the intel atom platform and as far as i know, all atom platforms are limited to SATA1 interface, which the transfer rates are caped at around 120mb/s read. it would be a waste to put a nice SSD in there with this limitation of SATA1.

from the pics, this thing is sexy as hell being so thin, small, and light. the biggest turn-off is that it will be chugging along on an atom processor. seriously... the ULV's are out now and sony will still be putting atoms in this? what sort of makes up for that is that it comes with a built in GPS and 3G connection. how i see this X-series is that it's only one glorified sexy netbook with tons of features for $1300. if they would only replace the atom with a ULV chip, i would buy this thing at almost any cost. if anyone finds any detailed info about this notebook,

specs i found:
- Intel® Atom™ Processor Z550 (2GHz)
- US15W chipset..............

Sony :: Vaio Z Series Won't Take Windows 7

Oct 20, 2009

I have a Sony Vaio Z790J. I recently tried to install Windows 7 x64 (from msdn) onto my Vaio. It always gets through the install but the second time it reboots (when it tries to start the services, etc) I go straight to a BSOD.

I tried changing ACHI, RAID, IDE, none of those make a difference. Has anyone seen this? Of course I blasted my backup partition too so I can't restore Vista x64. Nice move on my behalf

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 :: Vaio Z Series And 8GB Support

how to upgrade my VGN-Z36GD to 8GB.

I've read through the thread "How to make 1st to 3rd Generations of Vaio Z support 8GB" and there are some promising leads there especially from ZugZug an Sniper_Sung but the thread kind of abruptly ends without a clear resolution.

Another thread indicates that the victory was celebrated too early and the 8GB doesn't exactly work.
