Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T9550 (2.66GHz)
Microsoft® Windows Vista® Home Premium 64-bit
4GB DDR2-SDRAM (DDR2-800, 2GBx2)
320GB SATA Hard Disk Drive [5400 rpm]
Blu-ray Disc™ Read Only Drive

LCD 16.4" (XBRITE-ECO™)1600x900
I've managed to unlock my dvd drive mata UJ-862AS to become region free (RPC-1)
Supported drives: The tools work with Mata UJ-84x, UJ-85x, UJ-86x, UJ-87x, UJ-88x, UJ-89x drives. Mata BD drives and the old UJ-81x, UJ-82x, UJ-83x drives are not supported yet.
According to Ala42 (Firmware Patcher), 1. The firmware dump tool reads the firmware from your DVD drive 2. It then generates 1 original and 1 RPC-1 patched firmware file 3. The flash tool allow you to flash these files to your DVD drive 4. As it uses the firmware from your DVD drive, there is no compatibility issues.
Take note that in order to playback a DVD from any region, 2 conditions need to be satisfied. 1. Hardware to be region free - RPC-1 2. software - e.g. anyDVD
Disclaimers: I am NOT liable if You managed to BRICK your dvd-drive for whatsoever reason, howsoever caused!
Just purchased a 1555 with the radeon 4570 512mb GPU, Windows 7 64-bit, and performance is generally very good apart from one strange result. Windows experience index reports the following -
Processor - 5.7 Memory - 5.8 Graphics - 4.9 Gaming Graphics - 6.3 hard disk - 5.9
So the only low result is the desktop aero graphics performance at 4.9, which seems strange when the 3D businnes/gaming graphics score is 6.3. Other results i've seen posted on forums of the Windows 7 WEI scores are usually the same for desktop graphics and 3D graphics in Windows 7, which I would have expected as I understood that aero uses the GPU similarly to games. If anything, it looked like in most results the desktop graphics scores were slightly higher than the gaming graphics scores.
Does anyone know why I could be getting a lot lower desktop graphics score compared to gaming graphics?
I've checked the graphics drivers are up to date.
Can anybody else post their Windows 7 WEI scores from the 1555 with the 4570 512mb GPU?
i have a dell inspiron 1505 notebook. I bought it new about 1 year ago, i had it upgraded from dell with the 1.86 core 2 duo processor 1 gb of ram and a 128 ati x1300 mobility graphics card. 1 year ago most games only required a 128mb card which was fine, but now most seem to run on 256, there was a 256 option from dell for another 80 dollars on top of the other upgrade fee i already paid and i did not think it was necessary. So i know there is one out there. I have searched around on the internet for a while off and on and i can only find reviews of products i can not find any info on where you can actually buy an upgrade for this computer... I would like to get it upgraded to the 256 if it would not be too much. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
And also i play Battlefield 2142 occasionally and it had a freezing issue on the load screen so i dropped the graphic settings down a bit then it worked fine. But it has happened again, and i dropped the settings down as far as they can go with no luck it still does not work, and the EA tech told me to look for an update for my graphics card which i did and installed one that said it fixed "some gaming issues" but it did not fix the freezing issue.
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-6c73ca Entertainment Notebook PCÂ 2.2 GHz 2nd generation Intel Core i7-2670QM Processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.1 GHz.. Running Microsoft Windows 7 home edition 64 bit. Â The Standard VGA Graphics Adapter gives me this error message: This device cannot start. (Code 10) Â Where can I find the driver for it?
I realize the 330M GT is not a tier 1 video card for gaming...but I'm curious if this card can drive the native 1920 by 1080 res of this laptop in modern games (MW2, Mass Effect 2, etc). I'm not looking for 60 frames per second...would be satisfied with 30...just trying to gauge if this is a reasonable expectation.
Closest answer I've found in the owner threads indicated that one person said it could run native on Left 4 Dead 2 and COD: World at War.
Very impressed by the performance of the i7 core and DDR3 memory...just hoping the video card can at least hold its own.
CPU ~ 2.0-GHz Intel Atom Z550 RAM ~ 2GB-4GB (apparently you can add on another 2GB according to laptopmag) HDD ~ 128GB SSD NATIVE RES ~ 1366x768 GFX ~ INTEL GMA 500 w/ 762MB OS ~ Windows 7 Premium (32-bit)
I don't own a Sony VAIO X, yet, but I would just like to compile a compatible/playable game list for future reference.
If any owners would like to confirm/deny compatibility with the games or would like to add a game, I would appreciate if you send me a PM or post here!
how well can the new fw hold up against games like fallout 3, bioshock, devil may cry4, crysis(all directx10/1600x900/max settings, AA), i get anywhere from 39 to 75 FPS. I played Aion( an mmorpg, max settings, 1600x900, AA, directx10) and got between 60(in the fields fighting) to 45(running to new places) to 35(in towns crowded with people).

I recently got a CD-ROM that was for the PCGA-DSM51 and other docking stations. The reason why I got this since my original CD-ROM isn't working right anymore. But the problem I' am having is that it says that my CD-ROM is "epson dl-v100 ieee 1394 sbp2 device"
I don't think Windows XP detected the CD-ROM right since it gives a code 10 error and can't start. I basicaly need help so I can make my CD-ROM work right.
I got Vaio FZ190 with faulty Nvidia chip, then i had my motherboard replaced. The problem is i cannot restore my C: drive using DVD i made. So, i tried hidden partition by press F10 and is also not working. Here is the code i got while i was trying to do so,
"Cannot use this recovery disc for this computer. Confirm the model number"
when I click Ok, this message appears
"error: CompareSnyIniToPacIni, Error: 92"
Then I click OK and it drops me back to the Vaio recovery centre and this cycle will happen again when I repeat to restore drive c.
Both DVD and hidden partition was working just fine before i had my motherboard replaced. I search all thread and find out that system recovery will check my BIOS before it can restroe my C: drive so i try to reset BIOS setting by pressing F9 in BIOS setting and it's still not working. Now, i can use my vaio just fine but i can't restore my C: drive.
Alright so i have been trying to upgrade from home premium 64bit vista to W7 with my upgrade disc and i am out of idea. Every time i try to run the upgrade i get an error saying
"Windows cannot copy files required for installation. The files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070017"
I recently noticed a high pitched noise coming from what seems like my screen. I have a VGN-FW w/ a T9600, an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 graphics with 1GB dedicated video RAM, the extra-wide HD display, and a blue ray burner. I noticed this noise while I was converting a few movies (wich I noticed was taking up 100% of my CPU) and now it seems to be ever present. The only way to get rid of the high-pitch noise is to either turn the brightness on the screen all the way down or continually move the screen-pushing it up and down and such. Whenever I stop moving the screen, the high pitched noise comes back.
It is known that due to marketing strategies Sony decided to limit the maximum memory supported by Z690 (aka Z3) down to 6GB, despite the fact that there are reports about Z1, Z2 and Z4 installed 8GB successfully without a problem.
The working way is the stupid (and possibly risky) way:
1. Important: Clear all passwords in BIOS! (including main, user and HDD passwords) otherwise you may have to flash back to your current version to access BIOS settings.....
I have a Sony Vaio fw 490 CTo for a week and it's running window vista home premium 64x everything doing fine until i got freeze when playing game. I open taskbar manager and saw my physical memory is at 90% ......
I have Z11 with 1600x900 screen and I'm getting sick and tired from it
For starters, gamma was too low, I had to calibrate it using standard Display Calibrator in windows (not that i pretend i have a perfect color perception though) to get more details on shady pictures.
After that it was almost perfect, but color saturation was too high. It can be easily tuned using intel vcard control panel, but I've noticed slight flickering in gray color areas (only when using intel vcard), so I decided to switch to Nvidia card for text editing. But I can't reduce color intensity using Nvidia control panel! Digital vibrance is set to zero by default and can not be negative (at least in current drivers).
It there any way to overcome this problem? Am I the only one noticing? Every time I fire up my text editor, syntax highlighting is more like "Fear and loathing in Las Vegas", even page links on this forum are too purple.
It's not caused by increased gamma, I noticed it long before.
I've read through the thread "How to make 1st to 3rd Generations of Vaio Z support 8GB" and there are some promising leads there especially from ZugZug an Sniper_Sung but the thread kind of abruptly ends without a clear resolution.
Another thread indicates that the victory was celebrated too early and the 8GB doesn't exactly work.
I tried to copy data from one hard drive to another, and a little notice came up saying I would be better using a high speed port. I was cleaning out my closet yesterday, and noticed on my FZ box it says it comes with 3 high speed ports, but only two show in device manager, which are the two on the right side, as the drive I was transferring from was plugged into the one on the left.
