Sony :: Can I Control The Keyboard Backlight On New Z

May 19, 2010

the keyboard backlight goes off after about 30 seconds of non-use of the keys. The trackpad movement doesn't keep it lit.

i can re-light by touching any key, but this presents two issues:

1.) the first keystroke is entered. (i guess i can use the shift key)

2.) more important, the screen brightness seems to react to ambient light, so the keyboard's light ends up making the screen pulsate.

I couldn't find a specific reference, although hard to believe. But then again, the humongous threads are hard to search effectively.

Sony :: Any New Models On The Horizon (VAIO Summer Refresh)

May 16, 2009

I have been waiting for the Vaio Z to be refreshed with a new and improved graphics card, i was hoping by the summer as other pc makers are doing this. Do you think Sony will use the new ATI 4000 series or the new nvidia series? Will it get refreshed by the summer?

Sony :: Brand New Vaio Z 2010 128gb SSD RaidFailed

Apr 10, 2010

I know Raid 0 is not very reliable, but can it be so unreliable that it dies after sitting shut for a day.

The laptop battery had 90% charge.

This was my third boot which I made to create a backup disk. I turned it on last yesterday and when I turned it on again today this is what I see.

1 .So I am left without recovery disks what to do?

2. Can we change the SSD's to Intel?

3. I tried a JBOD and tried installing Vista 64bit and it worked although I did not go
ahead with the setup.

4. Are Jbod drives slower than RAID 0? If so by how much.

Dell :: E4300 Win7 64bit Backlight Control

Sep 30, 2009

I've got brand new Latitude E4300 and I decided to install Win7 64bit in order not to upgrade after I install all my software onto Vista. But I cannot get the LCD backlight control get to work.

In BIOS the settings work well, but in Win7 it does not. e.g. when I set in the BIOS half backlight, it works until I try to change it in Windows - it suddenly jumps to full backlight (I suppose),

but the Dell Controll Point dialog shows some 1/3 or similar. Then I'm able to change it +1 step, but it doesnt make any difference, even turning on and off the ambient light sensor doesnt make difference.

I tred to install several drivers from dell.com, but the support for Win7 64bit isnt very good. So I took some drivers from Vista 64b, and Vista 32b, but it made no difference.

Dell :: Keyboard And Keys I1564 And Other Models

Feb 5, 2010

Dell, is it possible to configure 1564 with a different keyboard? I even prefer the 1545 raised keyboard.

It's more old school (bb guy said it would collect dust under keys more), but it's easier to use. Does anyone know if the insp15z has a keyboard with raised keys?

Anyone else find the big flat keys harder to use? Is there some advantage to these, thus Dell made the change? I wasn't wild about the Sony chicklet style either. Lenova seemed easiest to me of the ones I tested in BB.

Sony :: Vaio Display- It A Backlight, Inverter Or Screen

Dec 7, 2009

i have a sony vaio c2z - nvidia geforce 7400; x-black lcd

i have had a lot of problems with my display since august. although i didn't notice at the time, it happened soon after i installed the Win 7 RC.

when i start the laptop up the screen looks all distorted and the colours arent correct:

but when i take screencaps and connect it to another monitor everything looks fine.

i assumed the screen was knackered, but i installed a game a few weeks ago and it brought the display back to life, only for it to look crap again when i restarted. this also happened when i did a clean install of vista, only for the display to go bad when the updates installed.

i have tried many times, but have been unable to replicate this...............

Dell :: M4400 ALS Not Functioning At All Under Windows 7 (but Other Backlight Control Works Fine)

Sep 29, 2009

Has anyone had an issue where the ALS suddenly stops working under Windows 7? I've checked BIOS settings, tried seemingly every combination of driver uninstalls/reinstalls, confirmed that both the Dell and Microsoft ambient light sensor services are enabled and running (and tried disabling, one, the other, and both) and have not had any luck. Unlike some other posts I found on here with the same-body Lattitude models, I can control the backlight manually with both the keyboard and software - it is only the ambient sensor that does not work.

I am running BIOS A15, and Windows 7 x64 RTM.

Acer :: Ghetto 2010/2012 Laptop Keyboard

Feb 12, 2009

I have an acer 2012wlmi and the keyboard is allllll screwed up.....and it isn't a num lock issue, or a AZERTY french keyboard map issue either - its just screwed....

I have to type the keys for the @ button to get the " symbol, and vice versa. Every third time I use the shift button, the cursor moves to some random part of whatever text I am typing and begins spontaneously typing there - sux when you're trying to type a school paper.

how to remap the keyboard, or at least return it to its default setting?

nothing short of a BIOS upgrade will fix this crap.....

Sony :: Vaio FW Noise / Fan Control

Feb 25, 2009

I've recently purchased Sony Vaio FW21E (European model) and to my surprise, I find it quite noisy (contrary to what you can read in many reviews).

The first problem is HDD - I've owned 3 notebooks so far and no one had such a noisy disk. I almost thought that there is some kind of motherboard or GPU fan in there until I opened the case to confirm that the noise really comes from the HDD. It is quite unpleasant in a totally quiet room (like in the night) but I can hear it even during evenings when the room is relatively quiet. Vaio owners with Toshiba MK3252GSX disk (320GB), do you experience the same amount of noise? (On the upside, the performance is really nice compared to my older laptops, Windows Experience Index being 5.4.)

The second problem is the main fan (which I understand is the only fan on this Vaio). It is quiet for the first hour of usage or so but then it always turns on for about 5 minutes, then it's quiet for another 2-3 minutes, then it goes off again etc. etc. I really find this annoying because the fan speed is changing frequently and rapidly (i.e. from zero to high spinning, then it slowly goes down to what I would call acceptable level, then it stops rotating immediately; then it goes of for 100% again etc.)

When you combine these 2 noises, the notebook is quite unpleasant to use in quiet conditions. From the right hand side where the disk is placed, you constantly hear a whisper-like sound while from the left side, you are distracted by the main fan which tends to be turned on and off in a few minutes intervals..........

Sony :: Vaio Zuneven Backlight, Greenish Tinted Spots At The Bottom Of The Screen

Nov 16, 2009

After using my new Vaio Z for a few hours i noticed a slightly greenish hue at the bottom of the screen(1600x900). It's mostly visible with white or very light background.

There are a few of those spots and i think it originates from uneven LED backlight. It's not instantly obvious, but after i've noticed it I find it somewhat distracting.

Sony :: IR Remote Control On Vaio Notebooks

Sony :: Vaio Z11Brightness Control Stops Responding

Apr 19, 2010

I am having a problem with my Vaio Z with a fresh install, relating to the automatic keyboard backlight and display backlight adjustment, and manual control of the display backlight adjustment with the Fn keys.

So from a fresh boot or reboot, automatic brightness control of both devices seems to work fine. The Fn key combos will also work correctly to control display backlight. And then seemingly at random, ambient light sensor control will freeze, and the function keys will no longer manually adjust brightness. It seems to happen regardless of which graphics setting I'm using, and it also happens even with both ambient light sensor functions turned off.

I've got all of the latest drivers and software from Sony's website installed (sans non-essentials,) so I'm not sure what could be going wrong. Both the power management and event services are running. Has anyone else had this issue, and perhaps had better luck in solving it?

Sony :: Brightness Control And NVIDIA Driver Updates For XP Downgrade VAIO

Jul 22, 2009

One of the most troublesome consequences of downgrading your VAIO to Windows XP is not being able to adjust the screen brightness using the F5/F6 keys.

This tutorial aims to (i) resolve that issue, and (ii) retain the ability to adjust brightness when you update to the latest LaptopVideo2Go drivers. The below methods have been tested on VAIO FZ, FW, and NS laptops with NVIDIA GeForce 8X00M cards, and they are working flawlessly with the LV2G 190.15 driver.

Part 1: Enabling Fn Brightness Control

Skip this step if your brightness control is already working

In order to be able to use the brightness control on a XP-Downgraded machine, you need:

1. VAIO Event Service Hotfix (Which updates the VESConfig.ini file for the VAIO Event Service)
-> You can get this at[url].
-> If you have an FZ, you can use the VESConfig.ini I have attached

2. NVIDIA Driver with Customised nv4_disp.inf (Refer to Part 2)............

HP/Compaq :: DV7 2070ED Backlight Keyboard

May 4, 2010

In own a Pavillion DV7 2070ED. I spilled wine over the keyboard...

My insurance will cover this so money isn't really the problem. So I was thinking about buying a backlight keyboard instead of the original black one (which works really annoying in lowlight conditions).

Now I found a thread about backlight keyboard but I'm unable to find out which backlight keyboard is compatible with my laptop. On the motherboard there is input for the keyboard-backlight. So thats not the problem.

Dell :: XPS 1645 Keyboard Backlight Leakage

Feb 11, 2010

Th backlit keyboard on my XPS 1645 leaks a lot of light, which is quite annoying in dimly lit environments.

In my case it is mostly the upper row of keys, but other individual keys have the same problem. As not all keys have this problem I assume it is not a design feature.

Is anyone else experiencing this same issue? I have done a search on the forum, but couldn't find anything related.

Also, I have not found away to get it to automatically turn off after the keyboard has not been touched for some time (which is how the backlight is supposed to work).

Is there any fix for this? I've already installed all of the Windows 8.1 drivers from your website.

HP Pavilion Dm4 2033cl Display :: How To Turn On Keyboard Backlight

Nov 8, 2014

I am pretty positive that my laptop does have a backlight. However, I didn't need it at the time and I shut it off. But now I can't turn it on. I originally remembered adjusting it through the power options and that there was a little slider to adjust the brightness of either the screen or the keyboard.  I could have been wrong though, since I no longer see the second slider for the keyboard brightness. I have tried everything I could find to get the light to turn on. I used the mobility center but there is no keyboard option. I have tried the fn + spaacebar, fn +f5, and my keyboard does not have a specialized key to adjust the keyboard backlight either. How to turn on the backlight?

Lenovo Yoga Flex :: Keyboard Backlight Will Not Turn Off On Y2P

I've owned my Y2P for the last 3 or 4 months now.  Keyboard backlight always turned off/on with Fn Spacebar just fine... until today.  Fn+Space just gets the keyboard backlight to flash off for a second, and then back on.
 
Also I checked and all of the other Fn keys work.  Also the Caps Lock light doesn't come on either.
 
And if that's not all, My power indicator light is amber even when fully charged.  (solid, not blinking)

Dell Studio XPS 1645 :: Backlight Keyboard No Longer Works

Mar 8, 2010

I noticed last week that the back light option on my keyboard no longer functions.I know the Fn key works on the keyboard as I can perform other Fn+ tasks and I know that the right arrow key (which is the same combo key that controls back-lighting) also functions on it's own.

Aside from normal Windows 7 updates, the only changes to my laptop recently has been flashing to the A07 bios and the new power supply mailed out by Dell.Am I missing a software option somewhere that defaults my back-lighting to off? Or is it a mistake (or intention) of the A07 bios to disable this feature given the recent power supply throttle issues with this model laptop.
