i am thinking of purchasing a sony z range laptop but cannot decide between the two resolutions of 1366 x 768 or 1600 x 900, i cannot currently go to any shops to see the difference so i am buying online is there anyway of me working which to get
huge threads dedicated to new Vaio Z (and read more than half of them) but couldn't find any useful information about 1920x1080 screen. I saw 1600x900 model in store and wasn't impressed at all (TN simply can't get better than average IMO)
Is there any information about panel manufacturer/type? Does anybody have proper pics showing its viewing angles (comparison with 1600 model will be even better)?
Don't post about resolution/DPI scaling/small fonts, this thread is devoted to panels' quality only.
I've been having trouble updating my graphics driver. I have a HP Pavillion dv4t 1600 CTO laptop. My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. My driver device is a Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family, and driver version is 220.127.116.113 from 8/27/2009. I've been trying to install the lastest from Intel which is 18.104.22.168.2869. However, when attempting to update drivers I receive an error message:
"The driver being installed is not vaildated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the cmputer manufacturer. Set up will exit."
This leads me to the HP website were I attempt to find a suitable update. However, when using the HP updater or manual search, I end with the same type of driver for graphics, sound, and chipset. My problem is: I don't know which one needs to be updated.
I play World of Warcraft, and I receive the message "Your driver device is out of date". That could mean any of them, so while using the Intel Driver Update Utility, none of my drivers appeared. And every time I try to update via HP, it appears that nothing has changed. I'll try to provide as much detail as possible and hope to hear back soon about my problem. Attached below as well are screenshots from the dxdiag window.

My TV's native resolution is 1366 x 768. My VAIO FW-190 has Intel Chipset and both the Windows built in software and Intel provided graphic card settings software do not show the 1366x768 resolution. I can't find a way to set the Vaio's HDMI output to that resolution.
I just submitted an order for a new vaio z and while waiting for it I thought I'd look into getting a nice external monitor for home use. After reading through the forum, I can't find any report of a vaio z owner successfully attaching an external monitor with a resolution of more than 1920 x 1200 (due to no dvi-dl compatibility). Specifically, I was hoping to get a 30" 2560 x 1600 monitor.
Is it safe to conclude that it is impossible to connect a 2560 x 1600 external monitor to my new vaio z?
20" 1600 x 900 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824005128
23" 1920 x 1080 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824005125
I know that i'll have a better performance with the 20" since it's using the lower resolution but how much of a decrease in performance would i see if i hooked it up to the 23" and it's native resolution? I'll be playing some what intensive games.
I know many people have said they upgraded their ram past the "2gb limit" to 3gb or some even 4gb on a Intel GL960 chipset...but has anyone successfully upgraded their ram above 2gb with the GL960 on a Sony Vaio, or even more specifically the VGN-NR140E, or any VGN model? I'm asking because I want to upgrade past the limit, but I don't want to waste my money if it won't work, and if someone can let me know if it worked on their Sony Vaio (should have similiar BIOS) then I will be a bit more confident on my purchase.
I have a SV Notebook PCG-7D1M which has completely died on me!! I heard somewhere that if a battery is dead or not inserted in a Vaio it will not work at all. Please can someone confirm this for me as at first i thought it was my power supply so bought a new adaptor but it still wont work with or without the battery in. I basically just want to know if it will work just running from the mains?
None of the Vaio notebooks have IR Remote Control which I feel is very useful and has become standard since long in notebooks of other manufacturers, still I have not found anyone complaining about it in this forum. Does no one here miss the lack of it in their Vaios?
how to change the screen resolution but, it won't stay at recommended resolution when I restart my laptop, it keeps going back too the smallest resolution. I have to go and change the resolution every time I turn it back on.
After reading the m6500 discussion thread it sounds like the consensus is that 1600 mhz memory makes no performance difference. But then a lot of folks seem to have configured their machines with 1600 memory and the below review suggests that the memory will help.
So to have this fully hashed out, I think we need to answer the below questions: 1) If you order the extreme processor does the BIOS recognize the 1600 mhz memory? 2) Even if it does recognize it does it make a difference? 3) Why did people with the extreme processor order the 1600 mhz memory? 4) Can we fill in the WEI scores for memory using 4 and 8 GB of both 1333 and 1600 memory with the extreme processor?
I have a chance to buy a 15" MB Pro for $1150. It has the following:
2.33GHz 4GB RAM 320GB HDD DVD+/-R/RW DL Super Drive 802.11n WiFi illuminated keyboard 256MB Radeon 1600 Applecare through Jan. 2010.
I have a pre-2009 17" MB Pro now with a 2.5Ghz CPU and 512MB 8600 video.
I just want a 2nd laptop that is smaller than the 17" for me and the misses to use. I will probably use Lightroom on it, iTunes, iPhoto, and Internet mostly and want to run the occasional game (nothing to resource intensive).
I just don't want to pay $2500 for a unibody. I would get a plain jane MB but I want a video card.....
Ideapad z510 Full HD 1920x1080 Resolution is not supported !!! The company which i bought Z510 i7 laptop described the laptop as a Full HD but my resolution 1366X768, is that normally ? and all the sites said that this laptop full hd supporter ...
I am thinking of getting the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM external monitor and use it with my y510p Lenovo laptop. My question is: Is there any way to get the 2560x1440 resolution out of the monitor using only VGA or HDMI port of this laptop?
