Sony :: Vaio FZ290 Tryin To Update From Vista 32-Bit To Windows 7 64-Bit

Apr 23, 2009

I have a serious dillemma , I'm trying to install Windows 7 - 64 Bit on my 32-bit vista laptop.

I have a sony vaio fz290.

I burned the image of a 7077 build I downloaded from demonoid. Booted off of it and clicked install , and then I got an error about not having a Cd/Dvd drive device driver missing , I tried a lot of things and searched all over the internet.

A few things to ask as I'm desperate

What can I do to make this work ?

Do I have to format my comp for this to work or can I just update over the 32-bit installation

OR can I just install on a partition ?

Sony :: This Update Can Only Be Run In Windows Vista

Dec 22, 2009

I got my Z890 the other day, and I have now started to reformat the thing and get it cleaned up. I've been following Sigma957's guide, and when I try to install the Sony Shared media thing I get the error, "This update can only be run in Windows Vista". What's up with this?

Sony :: AR And Windows Update Vista Service Pack 1

Jan 14, 2009

I have an AR-VGN370. After many months of waiting Vista Service Pack 1 finally is offered via Windows Update. I have assumed it was the Sigmatel driver that had prevented me from receivng SP 1. Is there anyone else for whom SP1 has recently become available and installed successfully? I am very hestitant to allow the install.

Sony :: Vaio FW490 Windows Vista 64 Refuses To Boot

Jul 20, 2009

I just recieved my Sony Vaio FW490 today. After uninstalling the trial version of Office 2007 (student version), windows refuses to boot normally. I tried several system resores without success.

Although it said that the restore worked properly, I kept rebooting to repair windows or vaio restore center or something like that. I finally called Sony tech support, and they walked me through restoring the C drive to its original state option

Sony :: Sound Hiccups In Win7 32-bit On FZ290

Nov 10, 2009

issue was with Nvidia's powermizer feature downclocking causing a latency spike, which caused the audio to studder. I disabled Powermizer using these instructions:

Disable PowerMizer **Tested**

or you can use a simple tool that applies those registry settings found here:

Powermizer Switch - get the most out of your video card

Details on my last post.

Original message:

Hi, last week I clean installed Windows 7 Professional 32-bit on my Vaio vgn-FZ290. It seems like everything is working fine with my laptop using a combination of drivers from Windows Update, as well as a few official Vista Drivers. There is one issue though. With Windows 7 and only 7 whenever I play music, watch a dvd, watch youtube, etc the sound seems to "hiccup" every 10-20 seconds. By which i mean the sound would be playing normally, then a split second "click" or "pop" in the audio. If I were to rewind and play the same portion where the pop happened, it wouldn't be there anymore, and the clicks would happen somewhere else. This happens in all audio programs (WMP, itunes) as well as you tube and even I heard it click during the windows logon sound..............

HP Dv4-1120us :: Bricked By BIOS Update - Windows Vista 64bit SP1

Jan 12, 2009

Simply put I went to update the bios on my notebook as I have previously without incident.  Well this time the update downloaded, installed and powered down Windows Vista 64bit SP1.  After that nothing! The power lights come on but that is it.  No HP Screen, No MSFT Screen no nothing.  I honestly think this is a bios update caused by HP's own update.

This is the update I installed: [URL] ...

Dell :: XPS M1730- After A Windows Update (Vista), My Screen Blacked Out And The Resolution Changed

Sep 14, 2009

Relatively soon after a Windows Update (Vista), my screen blacked out and the resolution changed from 1920x1200 to something like 800x600. After restarting the notebook, everything seemed to be back to normal, except my graphics card (GeForce 8800M GTX x 2) wasn't working, and upon looking in the device manager, it said the device wasn't working (code 43).

So, I tried uninstalling drivers/reinstalling drivers, etc. and nothing seemed to work. And now something I've done has made the main VGA drivers or whatever not work, and all I see is a big black screen on startup (but the mouse icon is on the screen and can move around).

HP/Compaq :: Windows (Vista) Updates Shows NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 Update

Apr 11, 2010

Windows (Vista) Updates shows this update for my Compaq Presario F572US notebook PC: "nVidia - Display - NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100". The size of the download is 64.3MB.

I visited nVidia's website to see whether they had an update; they had none. So, I'm wondering whether I should get this update suggested by Windows Update or ignore it.

Sony :: Vaio SR Update

Nov 18, 2009

when Sony are likely to refresh the SR? It's well overdue a re-design.

I know the SR was refreshed when Windows 7 launched in October, so I'm guessing we'll have to wait until at least January.

What would be like to see in a new model? Sony wouldn't want it to compete with the Z, so I don't think people should expect too much.

If however I check manually via the esupport website there are numerous updates for my model which should be available via the Vaio Update Tool. Is there some security settings blocking detection? I have reduced IE8 Security down to "medium".

Sony :: New Vaio Care Software Update Out. (3.0.0.0423)

May 14, 2009

User Interface has changed quite a bit.

It's also now compatible with IE8's rendering engine (previous Vaio Care versions would crash when rendering checkup reports. Boots much faster than it used to and seems to work with Vista a bit better in general, though I've not looked at every feature.

good piece of software to have an allow to run if you haven't before. FYI.

Sony :: VAIO SR ATI 4570 Driver Update To V9.6 Guide

Jul 21, 2009

From browsing the forums, i see that everyone is having trouble updating their drivers. Mobility modder currently does not support the ATI 4 series but there is still a way to install the drivers for us fortunuately . By doing this, you are able to install the display driver v9.6 but no CCC unforunately; however you can still retain the CCC v9.2 from Sony's official drivers.

1> Download the appropriate version OS of the 9.6 driver from [url]

2> Double click the file you just download and click install. It will unzip a folder to C:ATI (default). These are driver files. When the actual installation wizard comes up, cancel it.

3> Browse to C:ATI9-6_beta_win7_64_dd_CC (Driver name, e.g.)PackagesDriversDisplayW7_INF (For 32-bit) OR W76A_INF (for 64-bit)

**Btw, I am doing this example based on the Window 7 Install. (Other versions of the OS should be the same except the INF file name may be different)**

4> I am under 64-bit so I will use W76A_INF as an example for this guide. Double click on the INF file (for W7, it is named C7_81757)

5> Scroll down the file until you see a list like;

"ATI Radeon HD 2400 XT" = ati2mtag_RV610, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_94C1&SUBSYS_0D021002
"ATI Radeon HD 2900 PRO" = ati2mtag_R600, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9400&SUBSYS_30001002
"ATI Radeon HD 2900 XT" = ati2mtag_R600, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9400&SUBSYS_25521002

6> Add this anywhere between the entries you see above (does not have to be exact, just place this entry somewhere along the lines of the WHOLE list)
"ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570" = ati2mtag_M9x, PCIVEN_1002&DEV_9553&SUBSYS_9033104D
Congratulations, the display driver can now be installed ONLY VIA the HAVE DISK method.

7> Quick review on HAVE DISK method; Device Manager > Right Click ATI 4570 then Update Driver Software > Browse my computer > Let me pick a list of Device drivers... > Have Disk > (Now browse to the INF file you just edited, in this example; the C7_81757 inf file.) Install, voila, DONE.

8> Now, to get the CCC v9.2 (Can't get 9.6 yet), get Sony's ATI drivers, run it and click on CUSTOM install, NOT EXPRESS, install CCC only and anything that is mandatory (DO NOT INSTALL THEIR DISPLAY DRIVERS!!!) .Voila, CCC 9.2 function (which is the same as 9.6 essentially).

I believe this method works for NW series w/ ATI 4570 too.
