Sony :: Viao Any Parental Controls Useless "Splashtop Quick Start Button"

Dec 4, 2009

Sony Viao (NW series at least) have a quick boot feature for access to the internet without fireing up your operating system. Hit the special quick access button and away you go.

Guess what, if it is a computer for your child you cant even turn the button off or set it with a password. It resides on your motherboard any parental controls mcafee or otherwise are useless. The system for the quick access is by devicevm and is called splashtop.

how to control this, keep in mind this runs straight off the motherboard and windows is not fired up.

HP Pavilion Dv6-7138us Audio :: Tone Controls Apply Button Grayed Out

Jan 18, 2015

Under Control Panel, Sound, Speakers and Headphones Properties, Tone Controls Tab, the Apply Button is grayed out for my Bass/Treble settings which reset to 4 every time my PC restarts if I change them. I cannot set the Bass/Treble levels permanently where I want them (Bass - 4 and Treble - 0) because the Apply Button does not work. I have two identical models of this PC with the same problem - both HP Pavilion dv6-7138us with Beats Audio and AMD cpu. Can the Apply Button be fixed? The Beats Audio Control GUI (also in Control Panel) has Bass and Treble settings that remain where set.Perhaps Beats is overriding Sound in Control Panel? I have a boxed Windows 7 32-bit installed on another PC and Sound has different control options - no Beats Audio. I would think if Beats modifies Sound controls in Control Panel, those controls should work. Otherwise, the modified Sound controls would not be there unless they are there in case Beats Audio is uninstalled or disabled? I see no way to uninstall or disable and have no desire to uninstall. IDT Audio is listed in Programs and Features.

Sony :: Viao Gremlins.

Jan 4, 2010

I purchased a VGN-AR630E sometime around January 2008 that has been completely awesome up until last month, when I had to turn off the laptop during a game with the power button.

When it restarted, the initial VIAO screen had a bunch of vertical lines, the following screen had a bunch of ((((( on it, and windows would not start outside of safe mode. I paid Sony to connect to my laptop to fix the issue which I was told the first time was virus related, the next time it was due to using a registry booster program a year ago.

By this time the problem had worsened to the point where I could not get into windows even with safe mode, so I purchased the VIAO recovery disks and set my computer to original factory condition. Initially this worked and the computer ran great for about a day, until I installed a game and ran it .....

Sony :: Viao/processor

Jan 17, 2009

In the past I have owned Sony Vaio desktops and Im now looking at a Vaio laptop. I am currently looking at the VGN-NS235J/P. It can be found on the Sony site
as well as Amazon (pre-order only). (Sorry, not sure if I can post links here.)My question is regarding the processor. If I look at the Sony site it shows a thumbnail of the processor being a Centrino 2, but if I look at Amazon it shows it being a Pentium Dual-Core. It has been about five years since I bought a new computer so I am trying to figure out the details. From what Ive read on the Intel site the Centrino is a much newer as well as bigger/better/faster processor. I am a PhotoShop junkie and need speed.

Sony :: VIAO Z Graphical

Jul 29, 2009

I own a VIAO Z VGN-Z90NS (bought in Japan), did a fresh install with vista retail and have also changed the OS to Windows 7. Since I am not able to download drivers from Japanese VIAO Homepage I downloaded the drivers from US.

When I watch any kind of video i.e. flash video, video of Youtube etc. I experience some "lags" with the videos. The videos clips or flash don't run smoothly. I wonder if it's connected to the problem that I didn't use Japanese drivers?

Sony :: How Often Does Update Their VIAO Line

Mar 10, 2009

I noticed that most of their current computers came out last July/August. Does Sony completely replace their whole line up every year or sometimes do they just update the previous year's model? Are any of the current models they offer more than a year old? How long before new laptops come out do they get announced?

Sony :: Viao FW140E -> Win2k

Mar 29, 2009

I finally really got tired of Vista Home with it's limitations and quirks, and want to go back to Win2k. Anybody tried to load win2k on a FW series VIAO machine like this or similar? I found most w2k drivers inc. the LAN and WL card, so far so good. I've not tried the install yet, waiting for a new Seagate SATA 7200 320G HD, don't want to mess with this one (SATA 250G 5400) until I have the 2K system up and running on the new HD.

Guess I'll need to slipstream a boot CD with the SATA drivers, SP4, etc. Never done it, but have seen plenty of guides out there. Maybe... MAYBE, I'll try for a w2k/vista dual boot system, buy only after w2k is humming along nicely. I'm guessing this machine must fly with a relatively lightweight O/S like w2k (compared to a hog like vista).

HP/Compaq :: Dv4t Quick Launch And Quick Touch

Feb 24, 2009

Are both needed for the volume and mute keys to work as well as play/paul skip etc? I am running into an issue on bootup where something sort of drags and I think its the software that goes with these buttons. If I try to use the system to early I can crash explorer. I was able to do this on two brand new laptops. Or would I be better installing the lastest Sound driver, quick touch?

Sony :: SZ Brightness Controls In Windows 7?

Sep 3, 2009

I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 on my SZ5. Was surprised at how much works out of the box (fingerprint sensor, drivers etc) but the one glaring bug I found is that when I close the lid and the monitor shuts off, when I reopen it the brightness controls (FN+F5 and FN+F6) no longer work.

I also notice that the brightness controls in Windows' power options Control Panel disappears.

I need to restart my computer to resolve this (similar problems by other users: Sony Vaio SZ1XP - Windows 7 RC ). Does anyone have a solution? Thanks!

Sony :: FZ190 Brightness Controls Acting Up

Dec 5, 2009

I just tonight noticed that the F5/F6 keys do not work after the machine wakes from sleep. It works fine after I reboot. But after sleep the OSD will show up when I hit F5 or F6. The display gauge will move to the left TWO positions when I hit F5 but only once. If I hit F5 again, nothing happens. If I hit F6 it moves to the right TWO positions again only one time. In both cases there is NO change to brightness.

I tried to log off and back on to see if it has any effect. It did not. I'll reboot now and the hibernate to see if the problem recurs coming out of hibernation.

I am running Win7 ultimate 32 bit.

UPDATE: Well this is strange. I rebooted and the F5/F6 keys worked fine of course. I hibernated and then came back out and they still worked fine. I logged off and back on and again they were fine. So this seems to be ONLY a sleep issue.

If any of you have an FZ model running Win7 32 bit. Can you try this and report your findings?

Sony :: FE31H Brightness Controls Not Working With Windows 7 X64

Jun 21, 2009

I've recently installed Windows 7 x64 build 7229 on my Vaio and I've managed to get everything working except for the screen brightness controls.

So far I've installed the x64 version of SFEP driver along with Vista versions of Sony utilities dll, sony shared library, sony event service and sony settings utility.

Installing the xp versions of those programs made the brightness control work fine, but on Windows 7, the screen brightness control pops up on the screen but the brightness doesn't change. Also I've read that I should be able to control the brightness in the Windows mobility manager, but there is nothing there about screen brightness.

The screen running at full brightness is hurting my eyes.

Sony :: Setting Special Button Function? (Vaio Button)

Mar 20, 2010

I have an S series and when I press the silver VAIO button it mutes the sound.

I haven't found where to change the function of this button.

I've only removed the following Sony apps:

media gallery
pmb 5 and pmb plugins (click2disk/image optimizer/movie story)
vaio content metadata intelligent analyzing manager
vaio transfer support

Unfortunately I can't remember the default function of this button. Perhaps it was the media gallery? I'd like to change it anyhow.

Dell :: Pressed The Media Direct Button & Now XP Won't Start

Jul 14, 2008

Basically I bought a Dell Inspirion 1525 with Vista, Downgraded to XP, had to change the Hard drive to IDA for the system to recognise XP. Been running fine then I pressed the MD button by mistake thinking it was the power button, it gets as far as 'Building you MD files' then says ''DMD cannot access your hard drive. This maybe because you have enabled Microsoft Bit Locker (Drive Encryption)'' etc etc. Now i'm hoping that means it hasn't wiped my HD cos i've read a load of people who've had problems with that button wiping everything out but i think it can't recognise my HD cos I switched it to IDA.

Anyways whenever I press the power button now it keeps loading MD and doing the same cycle and I can't load XP at all, tried loading it in safe mode and it crashes. PLEASE HELP ME!!! I can't get windows on at all and I really don't care about MD, infact when I can access windows again i'll be researching how to deactivate the MD button so this doesn't happen again unless someone can provide that info aswell

HP Pavilion G6-1b59wm :: Won't Start When Power Button Pushed

Oct 7, 2014

I have a Pavilion G6 that won't start at all when the power button is pushed. I've tried it on battery only, and with the power cord plugged in. Yet nothing.
 
Here is what I see: When the power cord is plugged in, the power LED next to the port is white. I press the power button and it momentarily flashes white (and the F12 LED flashes). Nothing else happens. No other LEDs lite, and the screen remains black.
 
DIagnostic steps followed:
 
1. Battery was removed, and unit unplugged. Power button held for 30 seconds, and plugged back in. Nothing.
 
2. Battery removed and unit plugged into the wall. Power button pushed and nothing.
 
3. Tried a different power cord, different battery .. nothing
 
4. Removed the RAM boards, power button pushed .. nothing
 
5. Removed the hard drive (RAM still uninstalled), power button pushed .. nothing

Acer :: USELESS EPower Management Software

Sep 22, 2009

I see in the 1410/1810 thread people uninstall this and it seems to help battery life. I want to see proof. Show tests, videos, photos, whatever proof you have that this software that Acer engineers designed is useless. I had an EEE before and it shipped with Asus's own power management software and I never had a problem with it working together with whatever Linux or Windows OS I used. So, lets see what proof you have that shows the epower management software is useless.
