Sony :: Black Carbon Fibre Or Black Plastic Lid Of My New Z

Nov 25, 2009

I just got a brand new customized Sony VGN-Z890FKB. The sales representative of the website where I bought it from, states all their models come with the Premium Carbon Fibre lid, however I find it very hard to tell the difference between the two.

Nowhere it is indicated that this one has the carbon fibre lid. On the side of the box it says B (Black) so I got confused.

The lid is black indeed, if I look close enough I see small silverish specs mixed with the black, even on the bottom side of the laptop. The palmrest/keyboard area is a darker black without silverish specs in it.

A friend of mine has a Sony SZ and there you can tell it is a black Carbon Fibre lid (black with a hint of purple in it - when you angle the laptop from one light source to the other + you somewhat see horizontal lines on the lid of the Sony SZ).
Also if you look carefully on the sonystyle site, you see those same horizontal-like lines on the Carbon Fibre Black lid of the Sony Z contrary to the Black plastic lid.

How can one tell whether his Sony laptop has a carbon fibre or black plastic lid?

Sony :: SZ Premium Carbon Fibre Same SZ1-7

Jun 27, 2009

i own a SZ71WN/C that comes with a black carbon fibre lid.

I want to upgrade this to a premium carbon fibre lid.

The ones in the UK for the SZ1-5 are a little bit cheaper. The North American models did not have an SZ5/X model.

Basically i would like to know were the designs for the SZ1-7 premium models any different? Or do the SZ6/X-SZ7/X models lids designed differently and if so how? Are they stronger etc?

Would one even fit? I think all the 13.3 LED models share the same screens so it should fit. If you have owned a SZ1-5/X and a SZ6/7/X how did they look to you?

I cannot find anything about a possible difference in patterns.
If you know about this could you link for me the differences in patterns between both of these models SZ1-5 SZ6-7/X..............

Sony :: Vaio FWplastic Or Carbon Fibre

May 20, 2009

I had a previous gen Macbook Pro, which was a great machine and I'd go for Apple again, but I kind of dislike that they stopped selling laptops and started selling fancy mirrors :S

So anyway, I always liked Sony and now there are 2 options I particularly like:
1. Vaio SR with ATI Radeon 4570, which should deliver similar gaming performance to my MBP
2. Vaio FW with some series 4000 graphic card (is it 4650 or 4670? would love to see 4850, but that's ain't gonna happen...)

So, SR is small, sturdy, portable and should deliver some decent gaming performance (having the option to play Dawn of War II, Demigod, GRID on a laptop as portable as this would be AWESOME).

What about FW? With the better series 4000 ATI card, it should pack some punch (not to mention full HD)! The main question that bothers me is: is the build quality as solid as SR/Z/TT series? I think all those have carbon fibre casing, and are really top notch. Does FW belong to this group?

Sony :: Vaio Z, Z520n Want To Change Carbon Fiber To Black

Aug 23, 2009

I just recently purchased a used VGN-Z520n from ebay.

I noticed there is a small dent on the carbon fiber casing on the Keyboard.

I want to replace that part, but I actually like the black color on the new Z series. Is there a way I can purchase just the Black keyboard housing and replace it on my vaio?

Sony :: X Black And Black Spots

Apr 23, 2009

My VGN-S1XP has today developed two unusual black spots on the screen, one I found this afternoon, and the other has only appeared within the last few hours.

But these are NOT dead pixels, the pixels are functioning correctly, and when viewed from different angles this is obvious.

The marks appear to be behind the pixels, at first when there was just one I wondered if an insect had found it's way in there. The other spot however, is decidedly not insect shaped

Sony :: Vaio Black Screen

Mar 21, 2009

fairly old Vaio laptop. Can barely get past start up screen. Half the time all i get is black screem when i turn it on. I can get into windows though after a few attempts. I would like to completely reformat it, preferably putting on xp or even the new Windows 7. But i dont have any boots discs. So i don't know how to go about doing it. A breif step by step on how to wipe my laptop would be perfect.

Sony :: Vaio Z690- Black Or Premium

Feb 21, 2009

I am on the verge of buying a Vaio Z690 CTO but have one final questions, if you had to choose between black, or premium carbon fiber, which would you pick? I am nervous that with black, I would feel as if I should have opt'd for Premium and if I get premium, I am nervous the notebook won't look as classy. I have seen black at the Sony style store however and it looked very classy.

Sony :: VAIO SZ Screen Suddenly Turns Black

Feb 9, 2009

i have a problem with my 2 year old vaio sz. Since some weeks, screen turns black in irrregular intervals. The system is still available, but i can't see anything on the screen. The only solution is to push the power button an switch to standby mode. Afer pushing the power button again, the system comes up again and the screen turns on! The problem only occured in battery mode.

I tried nearly everything to fix the problem. I reinstalled Windows XP, tried different power management settings... nothing worked.

Sony :: Desktop Background Goes Black After Switching Between Stamina And Speed Modes

Mar 31, 2010

I have my destop wallpaper/background set to change every 30 minutes, pulling from the entire picture library (which is a few gigabytes). I have noticed that every now and then...say, maybe 10-20% of the time. The desktop background goes completely black after the switch. This happens whether the switch is set to Auto or I manually flip the switch (which makes sense, actually).

The only thing that restores the picture to view is logging off and back on. None of the following have any impact or cause the picture to display:Right-clicking on the desktop and selecting.....

Sony :: Vaio- If My Laptop Turns On, It Either Freezes, BSODs, Or Black Screens

May 17, 2009

If my laptop turns on, it either freezes, BSODs, or black screens (could be anywhere from the windows loading logo to doing some work on word, etc.)

And if it doesnt turn on, well it does; the hdd light goes on (for a second), same with the battery light (the battery light is fine though), but the screen is black; i can hear hdd activity though and if i throw a cd in there, it spins properly and whatnot, but it just doesnt do anything past the blank screen.

An external monitor doesnt work, and reformatting seemed to have helped abit, but then it just got worse 2 days ago; I can't get past the black screen after I turn it on.

I'm 99% sure its a hardware problem, and I'd be willing to replace whatever it is if I knew what it was, but I dont know if it's the hdd, or the ram, or the video card, etc.

I've also taken the laptop apart; so reseating the ram and hdd doesnt work.

Sony :: Why Is Vaio SR So Flimsy And Uses Cheap Plastic

Nov 25, 2009

I'm going to be ordering the Sony SR in a couple of days probably. Today I went to Best Buy to look at it. Everything about it I liked except for the casing. It's so flimsy and seems like it's made out of cheap plastic. I recognize that this helps to keep it light, but still, just touching it made me feel like my palms will break the computer after a while, lol. Seriously, why do they make it like that? The thing bends so easily, including the screen. Making it of something a more strong would not add considerable weight!

Sony :: Is The 1920x1080 Screen On The Style Uk Site A X-black Screen With Multiple Lamp

Feb 13, 2009

is the sony FW35V(customizable) on the sony style uk site a 1920x1080 a dual lamp LCD?
it says 16.4" H1080 WXGA++ (1920 x 1080) Widescreen X-black LCD screen with built-in "Motion Eye" Digital Camera, but is it a 1920x1080 dual lamp, multiple lamp(how many?) orr single lamp? make sure its the fw35v not the fw35x. the fw35v is the one that costs 60 to upgrade the screen. the fw35x says HD1080 (1920x1080) X-black LCD with multiple lamp, which im guessing is a dual lamp LCD right? also is the Dual lamp worth it for 60?
what does it do? give brighter?, sharper?, more deep and rich colours? or something else?

Sony :: Plastic Blank For Optical Drive In VAIO SR

Nov 30, 2009

if there is a blank you can replace the optical drive with in the SR series. Preferably a part that is sold by Sony themselves. I hardly use my DVD drive and having it power on and then off each time I bring the notebook out of standby drains battery. I also intend to reduce the weight of the SR by removing the optical drive.

With my old Thinkpad, I was able to remove the optical drive and replace it with a blank fairly easily. I think Lenovo calls it a "travel blank."

Dell :: 14z Chainlink Black

Is it a different material or is it just how much the fingerprints show?

wanted to play this on my macbook (on os x, I am not gonna install windows just for the 1 game)

It meets the requirements, why won't Feral port it?
