Sony :: Vaio SR520 Screen Hard To Clean

Mar 7, 2010

This is the only Vaio I've owned, but compared to other laptops this screen is very hard to clean without leaving streaks. I've tried the usual cleaners and no matter what cloth I used or how thoroughly I wipe it off, there are ugly streaks.

Mar 14, 2010

I picked up my new Z112GX last night and today after making sony's recovery discs i wiped and started a clean windows 7 professional install.

After this guide you should have a clean windows install with no "yellow" devices under system.

Windows 7 X64 Professional ISO: http://msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent..../X15-65805.iso

Then use the key on your machine. It will give activation issues jsut run through the automated phone activation and you will be fine. SEE BOTTOM POST FOR EASIER METHOD

I just need to get this one more thing clear:

I'll buy the VGN-Z540NAB and put in 3 GB of DDR3 ram and a 120 GB Vertex SSD drive.

3. switch to the new SSD harddrive

4. load my back-up image on the clean new SSD harddrive.

5. and i'm ready to go

Sony :: Vaio CS Win7 RTM X64 Clean Install

Sep 27, 2009

I have a Vaio VGN-CS16G/R and why is is that after installing Win7 RTM x64 and installing the necessary drivers, I DON'T see the "adjust brightness slider" on the power options? With my other laptops with the same OS, I can see that slider completely.

Also, I when I install Vaio Launcher which I got from the extracted Sony Notebook Utilities installer, it returns an error of:

" Error Number: 0x80040703
Description: Failed to find DLL function: SnyUtils.SuOpen

Setup will now terminate. "

Are there workarounds on this?

Sony :: How To Do A Vista X64 Clean Install On The Vaio Z

Mar 16, 2009

I have a Japanese VGN-Z90NS, and after getting it back from Japan for a minor repair, decided to put Vista Ultimate x64 on there to take advantage of my entire amount of memory.

Some may have seen this thread:
Sony Z HD install and 64bit upgrade problems

On at least the older Vaio Z series (the Z90, Z5xx in the USA, etc.), I have confirmed that the EFI thing is an issue if you try to install a slipstreamed SP1. I happen to have a genuine Vista Ultimate x64 install disc that is RTM, and it installed just fine with no EFI issues.

To get the 64-bit original Sony drivers, download them here or here.

Once you download all of the Sony drivers, download Universal extractor from here, and run it against all of the EXEs you downloaded to strip the model check.

To get the Intel 4500 graphics driver, download it here

NOTE: My Z does not have the built-in camera or fingerprint security, so you'll have to figure that out on your own. Somehow my notebook no longer has bluetooth after being fixed (looking into that ...), so that isn't in this list either. I do have one device that I can't find a driver for, and I bet it's bluetooth since everything else is fine. I'll update if I sort it all out.

Install Process that works:
1. Vista x64
2. Vista x64 service pack (if needed)
3. Intel chipset driver - reboot required
4. Intel Matrix Storage Manager (I have the RAIDed SSDs and definitely need this) - reboot required.......................

I have been trying to make a clean install of Windows 7 but when I get to the install screen,

it says that "it does not recognize my drive." This happened too when I tried to install windows XP,

Sony :: VAIO Runs Slower After Semi-clean Install

Jan 2, 2009

Bought a VGN-FW26 over the weekend (ATI HD3650, 2.40 Core Duo, 4GB RAM, Vista Home Premium).

On bootup, tried out a few games (mainly Fallout 3, Rainbow Six Las Vegas). Everything was running smooth, especially Rainbow Six at full resolution). This is with all the factory-included bloatware running.

I got annoyed at the bloatware, so performed a semi-clean install of Vista (ie. reformatted comp, reinstalled Vista, cancelled the installation process for the Sony programs ... then manually installed a selected number of programs using the VAIO Recovery Centre. These programs consisted several of the essentials from the programs list, and ALL the drivers).

Now, when I run the for-mentioned games, there's a noticeable increased lag for those games. I have even removed optimised Vista by disabling some unnecessary services, as well as made sure there are no unnecessary background programs running (e.g. McAfee)

In addition, I haven't been able to install the Catalyst Control Center, the VAIO Recovery Center only lets me install the ATI driver (I was thinking perhaps the lag in games is because my graphics card is running in a "maximise batteries" mode?) Is there anyway I can extract the Catalyst Control Center install from the recovery disks/drive?

Sony :: Vaio ZZ21 Vista Ultimate Clean InstallDriver

Jan 18, 2009

I finally decided to clean install my Vaio Z21 with Vista Ultimate to be able to use the hidden 10GB of the Harddisk. Everything went quite well and I have now a clean device manager with NO remaining question marks. However I have some left-over drivers from the Sony Website for the Z21 and I was wondering which devices I would need them for

Can somebody help me out with the followoing Drivers?
All of them are of the *.inf type, so i really do not know to which device I have to attachen them to. Just right-clicking on the file and selecting 'install' does not do the trick.

1) ME Driver Intel 4.0B 4.0.0.1105
2) SOL Driver Intel 4.0B 4.0.0.1105
3) Sony HDD Protection Driver 1.3 1.3.08.04 (As I use an SSD-Drive I do not need those anyway, do I?)
4) TPM Professional Package Infineon 3.0L 3.00.1413.05
5) Windows Image File Mini-Filter Driver 6.0 SP1 6.0.6001.18000 Exe Batch
6) Wireless WAN Driver Option 4 83 1 4.0.2.32 logo

My Z21 has the follwoing configuration:
nVidia GS 8300 M with 1600x900
120GB SSD Hard Drive

Sony :: Windows 7 Clean Instructions Install On VAIO E-Series

Apr 21, 2010

I was searching for a Thread that has some data about clean instructions and restoring all functions for the VAIO E-Series, but I didn't find one.

And since there is a lot of users here who own the VAIO E-Series, I think it might be useful.

So, can anyone share his experience with a clean install on the VAIO E-Series and how did you do that?

Some special order in installing drivers? What's about the FN-Buttons? Whats about the Assist and WEB Buttons? Are they all working?

Feb 14, 2010

i just reinstalled winxp sp3 on a sony s3xp, i don't have the vaio installation cd but i did a clean reinstall of windows xp and installed essential drivers but it was quite slow, eg seconds to load a directory, or long pauses during web browsing

now i've installed all the original drivers and utilities and am running without power saving but it's still sluggish, eg the mouse pointer jumps about the screen rather than moves continuously when the cpu is under any load at all

Sony :: Complete Set Of Vaio (AW Series) Drivers AND Instructions For Clean Install Of Vista

Jan 17, 2009

THIS IS FOR WINDOWS VISTA 64-BIT ONLY

My system is VGN-AW190.

There are already a couple of "guides" floating around that describe how to install a clean copy of Windows on Sony laptops.

The process is fairly simple and involves installing certain Sony software and drivers in particular order (according to Sony).

For FW series, the guide is here: Official Vaio FW Clean Vista Install Guide

When I first installed Windows Vista Ultimate, I had no problems getting everything to work EXCEPT for the following:

1) CompactFlash (JMicron JMB368 ExpressCard CF) driver is not available on Sony's web site. When inserting the card, it does not show up as a drive in Windows Explorer. After some time playing around, I figured the following 2 ways to make it work:

a. Insert your card, go to device manager and click on "scan for hardware changes"
b. Boot Windows while the card is inserted

2) SD card slot works but is not mapped to any drive. While Ricoh MS driver automatically creates a drive, there is no driver on Sony's web site that would do the same for SD slot.

Sony's support is useless to a point where they told me that the reason why my CF cards do not show up and there is no drive mapped to the slot is because the laptop does not support cards larger than 4GB (and I have only 8GB Sandisk cards) What a joke. I finally managed to get a 2nd tier technical guy on the phone who said that Sony does not provide CF drivers and that there is nothing they can do about it..........

Sony :: Vaio FZ Screen

Mar 9, 2010

Sony Vaio FZ Screen

Overnight a problem with the screen on my Sony Vaio FZ has become apparent. A think multi colour bar had started to appear at the bottom of the screen. I am not entirely sure if the problem is related to the 8400GT graphics processor, I have had a preciously faulty one replaced which I hope reduces the likelihood that the graphics processor is the culprit. I am just going through now backing up my data in case the fault spreads further. My eye sight may not be sharp enough but it may have expanded.

Note that in the pictures attached it appears green but when I have something else up as wallpaper, or a program open, the colours change to reflect in some way what is on the rest of the screen. For example when I have word opinion the blue background appears black on the bar, the text area is a shade of grey. Also, my taskbar is not that thick. My available space on screen has not gone away as much as the fault bar suggests it should have, it is as though my screen has adjusted in some way.

Sony :: VAIO AW Screen's Buzzing!

Oct 25, 2009

I have Sony VAIO VGN-AW360J.
About two weeks ago I noticed something weird with the brightness regulation of the display. When I tried to change the brightness

(always set up to the maximum) to a lower degree using the keys (Fn F5) a high pitch noise can be heart coming from the screen (to be more exact -

from the lid of the laptop, below the VAIO logo), and it is very noticeable in a quieter environment. Continuing lowering the degrees of brightness would cause higher or less noise. The nosier setting is at 90% of brightness

Sony :: Vaio Z Screen That Would Dim And Comeback On Again

Sep 5, 2009

I purchased a Vaio Z about 2 weeks ago. Last night, I brought the notebook out of standby and after a few minutes of working with it, I noticed a vertical region on the right side of the screen that would dim and comeback on again, just like you see with florescent lights when they are faulty. There was no specific pattern to it, just random. I turned the notebook on and off, and the problem seems to be gone. I was wondering if anyone has ever had this problem before or know what it is.

Sony :: Water Under Vaio FW LCD Screen

Aug 19, 2009

I would like to know if there's a way to remove the liquid under my LCD screen.

At first there was a big circle with a diameter of 3 inches. then after leaving it idle for about 3 or 4 days, the circle shrinked with a diameter of 2 cm. after that, I left the computer alone for another 4 days and that 2cm circle is still there. i turned the laptop and viewed the screen at a 45 angle and i see one normal drop of water and many small drops in that one area.

should i wait until it dries out? or should i disassemble the screen?

- considering there's no air or anything in the LCD screen itself, i dont think the water will disappear anytime soon. possibly 2 or 4 months? lol =(

water came in contact with the SCREEN only, all other parts (keyboard, speakers, cpu, etc. are CLEAN)

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.
