Sony :: VAIO SZ5- Can't Switch Between Stamina/speed Mode

Aug 8, 2009

I have a VAIO VGN-SZ55GN but I found out that I can't switch between speed/stamina mode.

I had had the intel graphic driver installed automatically after I'd installed a new OS onto the laptop but I can't get the nVidia driver to work.

I tried shutting down the laptop, moved the switch to speed and turned on the laptop again but I still can't get the laptop started up w/ nVidia graphic card.

Sony :: VAIO CS Series + AV Mode Button

Sep 24, 2009

I bought a Sony VAIO notebook from Japan (VGN CS52JB). With the help of this site I managed to convert it into Vista Home Premium English version which was originally Japanese.

Everything works perfect except the AV mode button and the capture button. (which worked fine originally)

I installed "VAIO Event Service" and "VAIO Launcher", which I thought need to have that functionality.

Do I need to install any other VAIO applications to get it working?

Lenovo U/S Series :: S205 With Win 8.1 - Unable To Switch To Best Battery Heath Mode

Aug 3, 2014

Recently I installed Windows 8.1 instead of Win7 on my IdeaPad S205.  The problem is that the new Lenovo Energy Management tool doesn't let me swith the mode "Best Battery Heath". Everytime I click on it, it is automatically switched back on the "Maximum Battery Life" setting.

I also didn't find any tool where I can set my preferences (Best Battery Healt as standard). I have never had this problem on Windows 7.

Does any else have this feature working under Windows 7?

I have everything functioning (incl. FN brightness and volume controls) in my partitioned install except this.

Sony :: Vaio Z Doesn`t Power Off After Mainboard Switch

Jul 11, 2009

Yesterday a sony partner changed the mainboard in my z. Vista runs fine but the z didn't power off! When i shutdown the system it will reboot!

Hibernation and Standby also doesn't work - the screen went black, hdd is working and after a few seconds the desktop is back!

What can i do? I've tested some of the recovery points without success.

Same problem when starting in safe mode!

For information: when shut down in the bios everything is ok, also when booting from an ubuntu cd!

There must be a way to fix this - i hope without doing a system restore from the dvds....

Sony :: Vaio Z In Stamina Mode

Nov 3, 2009

Since I installed the new driver of Windows 7 for my Z, I have some wierd problem in Stamina mode (see attached photo). I wonder if someone has the same problem. I installed the driver in the same time that I update my Z's RAM to 6GB (bought a 4GB). It may be my new RAM, but I don't have any problem in Speed mode, no error with Memtest, and no BSOD either.

Sony :: Vaio Z690 Speed Mode Graphics

May 9, 2009

It seems for some reason my Z690 does not work well in the speed setting. This results into videos that seem to refresh a lot, games that are slow and have jagged edges and in general slow video performance.

Whats funny is that on stamina setting, all my graphics actually do quite well. Videos play fine as do the games /w smooth edges

Sony :: Vaio Z Speed Mode High Temps And CPU Usage

Mar 10, 2010

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-Z590 with windows 7 32 bit professional installed. When I switch to speed mode and hook up a monitor (24" dell LCD) via HDMI->DVI the graphics card temperature goes up to around 80-95C (measured with real temp 3.40) and the CPU temp also goes up into the 60-70s. No programs are using the CPU heavily. During this process the fans go up to max and the computer gets really loud. I have all the latest drivers installed and the latest BIOS.

I was wondering if anyone else has a problem like this? Would installing 64 bit windows 7 be better? It makes it really noisy when I hook up a monitor via HDMI. Any ideas?

Everything is perfect in stamina mode, low temps, low cpu usage.

Sony :: Vaio SZ440ARGH! Speed Mode Brightness Controls In Windows 7 (x64)

Nov 9, 2009

just can't seem to get my Brightness controls to work in speed mode in windows 7.

I've tried 169.09, 180.70 and the most recent forceware drivers.

I've installed the registry file that was recommended in one thread.
I've tried all kinds of orders. Still, nothing.

I've currently installed (in this order)
SPEF
SonyPI
Shared Library
SonyUtils DLL
Event Service
The Registry Patch
NVIDIA Drivers

They work fine in STAMINA, but not in SPEED. I can't even access them through Windows Mobility Center or Power Options. I can change them a very small amount though the NVIDIA control panel through the "adjust color settings" tab. Otherwise, theres no mobility options in the NVIDIA panel.

Nov 17, 2014

Flight mode won't switch off - it's greyed out and is ON.I've Googled the issue and an upgrade to the BIOS was recommended - it took me from 2.6 to 2.9 (I think) but still stuck on flight mode so no network connections to my printer etc. This is a fairly new machine. Upgraded to Windows 8.1.

Sony :: Vaio Z11MNB: Brightness Adjust Doesn't Work In SPEED Mode

Mar 12, 2010

I've just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on my Vaio Z11MNB. As Google told me there is a problem with the FN + F5/F6 brightness adjust in speed mode.

All Sony software ist installed correctly and in the newest version I found.

As in many threads mentioned I followed the right order. But I still cannot adjust the brightness in speed mode

This thread Problem with Vaio Z Windows 7 brightness lead me to the right graphic drivers I thougt... Okay these drivers[url] are for the ZD790 but this shouldn't matter it's the same 9300GS chipset...

The following sony software is installed:
SETTING_UTILITY_SERIES_5.1_5.1.0.11200
SFEP_DRIVER_SONY_8.0_10Q1_O_7_8.0.1.1
SPIC_DRIVER_8.0_09Q3_7_8.0.1.1
SONY_SHARED_LIBRARY_5.5_5.5.0.10160
VAIO_CONTROL_CENTER_4.1_4.1.0.10160
VAIO_EVENT_SERVICE_5.1FH_5.1.0.12010
VAIO_POWER_MANAGEMENT_5.0_5.0.0.11300
VAIO_SMART_NETWORK_3.1_3.1.0.11250

Another smaller problem: From time to time there is a yellow exclamation mark at the SD-Hostcontroller in the device manager. I've googled a lot but there seems to be no other driver than the windows included. VEN_1180&DEV_0822

Acer Aspire Switch 10 :: Dock Connection - Keyboard Will Not Work After Sleep Mode

Nov 15, 2014

So, I've had this problem from some time now. When I put my switch 10 to sleep, and then re-open it, the keyboard is not working anymore, like it has problem recharging drivers. Same issue happens sometime when I use it in tablet mode and then reconnect the dock to it, I've a very hard time trying to make the keyboard and touchpad working again. The fact is that the usb port on the dock doesn't seem to have any problem at all, only the touchpad and the keyboad. I can't figure out if that's a software or an hardware problem.

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 ?

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.
