Sony :: Vaio G11 Brightness Keys Not Working In XP

Jan 5, 2009

This is almost a classic problem. I just installed XP SP3 on a Vaio G11. I did everything according to Sony's plan. But the brightness keys don't work.

Is there a chance that Sony's drivers were written for XP SP2, and that SP3 is the cause of my problems?

Reason I'm thinking this is that SP3 recognized some devices that SP2 doesn't recognize

HP/Compaq :: DV6130US- Some Keys Not Working And Brightness

Apr 4, 2009

My laptop has gotten into deep trouble..

Since the last few days, some of the keys have stopped working .. These are mainly the z,x,c,v,b,n,m,space-bar,delete,f8 keys.

Accidentally I minimized the brightness level to lowest level using the fn+f7 key.. and now i cannot bring it up using the fn+f8 key.

I heard that this could be problem due to some malware. However, i ran spybot and antivirus checks and nothing seems to have worked so far. Also, these keys do not even work at the boot time before any OS is loaded. So should i assume that this is a hardware problem?

Currently i am alteast looking for a solution to atleast restore the brightness level.. because its really strainful to look at the dim monitor.. Isn't there any alternative to the fn+f8 key combination?

My laptop - HP Pavilion DV6130US.. Windows Xp. about 2.5 years old.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X120e Funtion Keys For Brightness Not Working?

Mar 29, 2011

I just got the x120e and I already went through and fixed it auto-brightening itself. After I hit the Fn + Home and adjusted it to my preference. It was not on the charger when I did that and I was in a darker room so I had the brightness down lower. Later on in the day, I plugged it in to charge and I went to make it brighter. The brightness is not changing however. All the oher Fn + F keys are working. Just not the two for brightness. The weird thing is, I shut the computer, waited for it to enter sleep mode then opened it up again and it was really bright and I had to pretty much squint, but again the keys were not working to lower it. I closed it again and opened it and it is again dimmer. The keys still aren't working.

Sony :: Brightness FN Keys

Nov 24, 2009

I have upgraded to W7 pro, ran the companion DVD and everything is good except the FN brightness key (also changing brightness in W7 itself) they don't work.

I have been to the website and down loaded apparently the correct utility settings driver for W7 Pro 32-bit (at least it says on the website its compatable) and when I try to run it, it says it's for Vista only.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Display Brightness Keys Not Working / Audio Channel Commutation Gets Stuck

May 27, 2014

I've got 2 separate but really annoying issues with my W540 20BH:
- display brightness keys not working: when waking up from Hibernation mode, sometimer (really, randomly!) the display brightness keys (Fn+F5/F6) don't work.... either if the display brightness is stuck on max, min or an intermediate level...Is there a way to shut down and restart the process which commands the Fn keys?
- audio channel commutation gets stuck. Normal behaviour of the audio configuration is:
1) speaker volume disabled, mic disabled
2) when plugging in a 4-pin headset, headset's volume is on, headset's mic is switched on; speaker volume is still disables.
3) when unplugging the headset, speakers' volume is still 0
After each boot, the audio channel is at 0, but doesn't commute to the headset when plugged in! I have to open Configuration Panel, realtek properties. With this window open, unplug and re-plug the headset. Now, the volume has its normal behaviour.
Any better way to configure audio channels and evenments, which is able to bypass realtek's manager?

Sony :: Vaio VPC-Z1 UK Replacement Keys

May 26, 2010

I have been having a bit of a nightmare with Sony support. Basically, when my laptop first arrived, my F7 key always looked a bit "off" - the backlight under it always seemed brighter, and it was slightly raised on one side, but I ignored it - how often does anyone use F7?

Anyway, I was cleaning the keyboard because it has that stupid type of keyboard that picks up every bit of oil (drives me mad!) and the F7 key just came off. It wasn't even a harsh cleaning

From the beginning, the A key on my Vaio VGN-Z590 keyboard has been typing aa instead of a. It sort of comes and goes - sometimes it's rare, sometimes almost always. I've had the same happen on o key just once or twice but no others. This never happened [just corrected aa here] to me on other keyboards [corrected again] incl Fujitsu and IBM laptops.....

Sony :: Vaio FZ LCD Can't Change Brightness

Feb 19, 2010

I've done a search and couldn't find anything relevant.

My FZ of 28 months old has suddenly started making a faint buzzing noise from the screen.

At first I thought it was the fan, but I realized it's the LCD. I can't change the brightness for some reason using Windows 7 but it's on Max Bright. I've seen some threads of people having this problem on lowered brightness levels but this is happening on full.

When I shut the lid, the buzzing stops. It can be heard if I stand behind the laptop or place my ear beside either rear corner of the laptop.

Sony :: Vaio Z11 Screen Brightness

May 22, 2010

I just got a z11 and will be returning my macbook pro soon.

The only thing that is making me hesitant is the screen brightness of the z. With the plug in and full brightness, it's not that bright, at least NO WHERE NEAR as bright as the macbook pro with high res anti-glare. Is this normal?

How many of you Z owners find the screen brightness too low? Even at full, it feels dim.

Sony :: Vaio Z Windows 7 Brightness

Nov 6, 2009

I recently upgraded by Windows Vista 32bit business VaioZ690C Laptop to windows 7 professional. So far, everything has worked out great, but I have a couple questions:

1) How do I get my brightness keys to work? I cannot increase / decrease it

2) When I installed Windows 7, many of the Windows Vista drivers rolled right onto Windows 7, and would absolutely perfectly, do I still need to uninstall them all and install the "windows 7 version" or is this fine.

extra info:
*running R3054M3 bios ("I THINK")*
*running v.5 of vaio event service(i think something like that*

Sony :: Vaio S460FN Keys- Windows 7

Jan 7, 2010

how to get your FN keys working and for this particular laptop at that Sony Vaio S460. There were descriptions of installing drivers in certain orders, as well as going to a third party site for the contrast portion. Unfortunately, that thread was closed.... but i had a very important question:

I've recently switched from XP to Windows 7 completely bypassing Vista. I had to re-install all the drivers from Sony (i believe i have most of the important things working) however when it came to the FN buttons, those few keys took me longer than the whole process of changing windows. TO my surprise, many of the drivers adapted themselves from XP to WIndows 7. Anyways, after trying everything, i think I finally got MOST of the FN buttons working.. However, when it comes to the volume portion, it only allows me to control up to 1 bar.. So when I click FNF4 - the volume will go up but only to the max of 1 bar?

Sony :: Fn Keys Not Working After Windows 7 Install

Feb 14, 2010

i upgraded my hard drive and installed windows 7 this weekend. Everything is working fine except for my fn keys will not work.

I have looked high and low through the forums to try to find a fix. I have been installing Sony drivers for the past 3 hours, rebooting between each installation, and it still isn't working perfectly.

I've gotten to a point where the Volume keys work, and when I push Fn+F5 to lower the brightness, the little brightness meter pops up and the sound is made. But, the brightness won't go any lower than maximum.

The screen is really bright and it's killing my eyes, and draining my battery crazy fast!

Sony :: New Vaio Z With 1920 Screen- On The Brightness

Apr 1, 2010

received the new Z 7 days ago, great is just a great little notebook, the best i had (coming from an SZ premium).

The only thing that is killing me is the auto brightness, the resolution is the 1920x and in dim light the brightness is going down, after 1 hour my eyes are red. The only thing that i can do is putting the lamp directly on top of the keyboard so the sensor adjusts the brightness to the maximum level.

What can i do? I can't find a way to turn down the auto brightness....
