Sony :: Vaio TT Series User Guide

Apr 20, 2010

I recently purchased a refurbished TT Series laptop from SonyStyle. It didn't come with much in way of documentation - I'm still trying to sort out what they gave me.

Is there a write-up anywhere about the TT series computers? For example, something that tells how to adjust the screen brightness? Most new devices come with a booklet that identifies everything on the device, and tells how to use it. I find I still have questions about my TT, and while they may be rather ignorant (I don't know much about the TT), I'm still trying to figure out an answer....

Sony :: New Vaio User

Dec 10, 2009

After having HP/Compaq notebooks for the last several years I decided to go with Sony this time. I got the VGN-NW270F model.

Overall I'm really pleased with it. I especially love this keyboard style. I do a ton of typing and this keyboard is just great.

This is not so much a complaint as a question. I've never noticed this on other laptops before so maybe this is common to all, or maybe it's common to Sony or this particular model, not sure. But the chassis around the screen doesn't feel tight.

I noticed this when closing it the other night. It's not falling apart or separating or anything, but it just doesn't feel snapped/glued (whatever) in place. Also, on the left and right sides below the screen, it kind of pushes out a little. You can feel it, and only slightly see it if you're really looking.

I know this seems like a minor issue (if even that) so I'm not complaining. I'm just curious as to whether this is normal or if it's something that could potentially get worse.

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.

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W500 To Boot Up Without Click On User Or Admin?

Jan 3, 2012

I have Thinkpad W500, Windows 7 Professional, 64bit.   When I turn on laptop, i forget when (before or after Windows loading) it brings me to the FingerPrint icon.  This part is ok because the laptop seems to continue booting without my clicking it which I prefer. (I don't even have my own FingerPrint saved in laptop and I find that strange. I bought this W500 used).  After FingerPrint icon disappears, the User or Admin Icon is shown on screen.  That picture needs to be clicked for laptop to continue booting up or loading up. No password required, just click the icon.  I'd like for laptop to just bootup without doing anything, and go to the desktop page automatically (like all my other thinkpads).
 
How can I turn off that second Icon or feature?  Is it a User or Admin icon?   I'm only user of laptop so I don't need feature to use a password or to click the Icon.

It is in PDF format, 15 pages long, about 2.4MB in size. It would probably work for most SR2XX series notebooks, and maybe others as well.

Sony :: Disassembly Guide VGN-SZ1M/B / PCG-6J2M

May 15, 2010

I have Vaio VGN-SZ1M (bought in 2006) that I need to take apart. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to pop out the keyboard. I have removed the "relevant" four screws from the bottom, then figured that the part between keyboard and display doesn't seem to be removable (as it is with my even older, super slow Toshiba Satellite I am relying on right now), and now I am stuck. Does anybody know where to find a disassembly guide? - Preferably a step-by-step guide as I am not only a blonde but also not exactly super computer-savvy (as this thread clearly demonstrates). Or does anybody know how to take this notebook apart?

For some reason the VGN-SZ1M (or VGN-SZ1M/B) has two different model names printed on it, the other one being "PCG-6J2M", but according to the Sony website the "PCG-6..." model number is used "for different purposes" - no idea what that means - and the "real" model number is VGN-SZ1M).

I have spent the past two hours trying to find a disassembly guide online (or just a quick "how to pop out/remove the keyboard" explanation, but haven't been successful. I have also tried to get in touch with Sony's customer service in the U.S., however, they cannot (or won't) help me because the laptop was bought in Germany (where I was living at that time), so the U.S. customer support doesn't feel responsible (or so), and the customer support in German doesn't apply because I am now located in the United States. Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place. Don't take this as a rant, please, it's not meant as venting. Just trying to explain my level of "stuck-ness".

Sony :: Windows 7 (64) Installation Guide -- FZ280 E/B

Oct 24, 2009

clean Windows 7 (64) installation. My guide is more of a 'bare bones' installation as I only installed what is needed for functionality of the big features. The guide is incomplete. I will continue to update the document as I make more progress. Please feel free to report anything you find that is incorrect etc.

keep in mind this is for a FZ280 E/B, I have no idea if it will work on other FZ models.

I am still having problems with the Bluetooth driver/software and the Wireless Switch Utility (what exactly is this needed for?). I believe the functionality for Bluetooth is dependent on the something to do with the Wireless Switch Utility. However I haven't had any luck installing either option.

There appears to be a problem with the power management. I unplugged the notebook for the first time and the battery went from 95% to 60% within 5 - 10 minutes. Any thoughts will be appreciated. I will be researching for a solution as well.


Below is the attached guide and a link to download the drivers I have used for the installation.

The following steps below include various driver sources and install instructions.

1. Install your edition of Windows 7. I chose to change the UAC setting to never notify. If you leave it in the default setting, various prompts may open when installing the drivers and utilities. Open "Computer", click the "Organize" tab, navigate to "folder and search options", click "View" tab, and uncheck "Hide empty drives in the computer folder".

There will be two exclamation marks for the "Mass storage controller" and "Unknown device" in the device manager. Intel 4965 Wifi, Marvell network controller, and Conexant modem drivers are included in Windows 7. You can update them if necessary

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

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 CTO

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.....
