Sony :: Is There Z Series Made In Japan And Another One Made In Usa
Aug 27, 2009
i heard that there are 2 types of sony, one made in japan and another one made in usa . is this true or what ? is there sony z series made in japan and another one made in usa ?and if yes, then what is the difference between the sony z series japan version and the sony z series usa version ?
last month I upgrade the HSDPA board to the Vaio VGN-Z790LDX in order to use any sim card from any international cellphone company and it worked at first attempt .
now I just replaced the IFX-517 and the wwan to the Vaio VGN-TT290NBX and I have installed one IFX-517 having the sim card slot and I placed the unlocked wwan GTM382.
anyone did the same upgrade? which driver are the best in order to make it working properly?
I am asking this because I did try to install the Option driver /Globe Trotter Connect and the Vaio Smart Network but for many times it was not succefully done . the first times the minicard was in the device manager list but just till the laptop was on.......and after restart it was not there .
now finally after many times removing the driver and the minicard the system is working but I don't know for how long........
now I am wondering that I did mistake at the beginning because I mixed sony driver and Option drive and software.............in few words I made a Cocktail,
I am considering a range of Vaios at the moment (including some HP models; although Vaios are my #1 choice).
With the new Core i7 Processors out, I am wondering whether buying a Core 2 Duo processor of any sort (TT: SU; Z & SR: P9xxx, etc) now would mean they would be totally redundant by Q1 of 2010 or do you see some variants of the Core 2 Duo processor lasting a bit longer?
I realise technology continues to move forward at a rapid pace and was just curious about where Core 2 Duo stands in Q1 of next year.
Step 2. UnRar and plug in usb/flash stick then run HPUSBFW (only file not in a folder)
Step 3. Select location in the Top and FAT 32 then check Quick Format and Create a DOS startup disk. **DOS system files are in folder labled accordingly** Click Start to create bootdisk
Step 4. Move contents inside "copy to USB" to USB (copy files not the folder) Once on USB run the batch file.
Step 5. Reboot and press esc twice on HP screen press F9 and select to boot from USB
Step 6. Windows98 prompt appears type HPBQ189.EXE and press Enter. Next press G (this is not an option on the screen) screen will pop up with non vista as option 0 or vista as option 1. Press 1 and exit to prompt.
REBOOT! New hardware found! install latest Nvidea drivers (graphic and nforce) and you are all set.
what the screen/lcd cover that fits flush over the LCD is made of? Is it plastic or is it really glass like they advertise it is? I ask because people on youtube who are posting reviews say it's plastic and not glass. I'd like to know one way or the other before deciding to order.
The time is near for me to upgrade to a new machine. While this should be an exciting time, I find it more and more stressful as to which MacBook to purchase. I'm currently deciding between the Air and the 2.4 GHz MacBook. The MacBook weighs in only slightly more than the Air, and the thickness of the machines are getting closer to each other. However, the real separating factor for me is the display and the trackpad. I've grown very accustomed to a mouse button, and taking that away feels.. awkward at best. I don't know if I would be able to get used to that. The real separating factor here is the display.
Alright the other day while surfing the net i noticed a strange noise coming from my laptop and I really didn't think of anything.
So anyway just 5 minutes ago while doing the same usual things like surfing the net, the same noise came out again. Just once, and it sounded something like this, DEEENGGG......
(i really don't know how to explain it) this sound appeared while my volume is muted. Anyway I know it's not the hard drive noise so i am a little worried but more so confused. I'm thinking is this an indicator that maybe the temperature of my laptop is hot that causes that sound
I have got an Acer 7720G laptop which comes preinstalled with vista.
I haved made a seperate partition and installed "Open Suse" (linux).
Each time I started my laptop it would give me an option from which I could choose which OS I wanted to use.
I wated to get rid of Open Suse and so I removed that partition.
But each time when I started my laptop that OS selector menu would still come.
So, I have then delted all my partitions and created new ones.
When I have installed the "Recovery - Factory Default" to bring back the laptop to its original state - it did install windows but now I cannot boot my laptop any more because it still tries to bring up the OS selector menu (but fails).
I think here might be a prob lem with the Acer "Recovery partition" which I didnt dare to touch.
well last night and this morning i was busy making my self a home made cooling pad, with some crap laying around the house. I don't know if there is already one but i'll put this one up. I will upload pictures tomorrow. The total project was about 1 hour and cost less than $10. It also has a speed control which is cool (it is built on my ac/dc adapter so you will make yours). My mother-tongue is not English but French, so excuse the words i might use or not use. Also their are some tools i couldn't translate the name, but when pics are up I'm sure you will know..................
I made a USB back up using the Dell Backup and Recovery/Factory backup. I can't seem to get my laptop to boot up from a USB, though. I've looked at all the options I see via F2 and F12. But I see no mention of USB as something it could boot from.
I have a DV9535nr and I want to do a clean install to get rid of crapware. BestBuy furnished me a set of discs (at no cost unlike some I have read about) but will these contain the crap I want to eliminate? When I try to run the recovery disc feature and make my own from my hard drive it tells me a set has been made (yeah, yeah, ok ok MS/HP) so it looks like BestBuy beat me to it.
I ordered a set from HP to be on the safe(r) side but have read in this forum that these might not be such a good idea, either... bugs etc...
I have a HP d103tx notebook that I bought some months ago and was working fine until this one day I installed the Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver from the HP website.After installing that only USB 3.0 port work and not USB 2.0 ports. I tried uninstalling it but no love.. Tried reinstalling it but still no love.. Tried changing the settings to default through BIOS but still..
I have a HP touchsmart envy 15 and I am trying to restore computer to factory default. About 6 months ago, the computer said I could make a boot disc and be able to use that to restore my computer to factory and after I make the boot disc, I can delete the recovery partition as it will be stored on the disc. So I went ahead and make the disc (it turned out to be 4 discs) and the computer deleted the partition. Now I am here trying to use the discs to restore to factory, however, my optical drive isn't detected when the bios is booting. Because of this I need to turn those 4 discs into a bootable USB thumb drive. I have looked all over and there are many different ways of converting 1 disc into usb, but not 4.
I bought a VGN a couple of months ago in Japan, but I need the drivers in english because i will like to install vista Ultimate on the machine. everywhere I searched, only japanese drivers were available. I want the language in English, not in japanses as i am currently working with. It came with Home Premium, i need drivers for the camera, the bluetooth, the geforce 8400GT.
Which series is better? The B series is for business. This series is only 5.9lbs with 15.4'. On the other hand, the CW series is around 5.5 lbs and it is only 14'. What do you think? Have you ever try B series? 15.4' is pretty good for movie.
I really enjoy the big screen, large HD and fast CPU. And what appears to be a Sony exclusive, a R/W Blu-Ray drive. I watched eagerly at the AW series, thinking that I might pull the trigger on the 'next' laptop in this series.
But as you know, it never came...
So I took a look at the F series at some of the local computer shops (e.g. Fry's and Micro Center)
What does that look like to you? We're thinking an updated Vaio P given that stretched form factor. The previously unheard of Vaio model PCG-11111L is definitely a Sony of some sort complete with CDMA850 and CDMA1900 courtesy of Qualcomm's Gobi silicon .....
