Sony :: Wide Gamut Display (or 3-LED Display)
i bought a Sony VGN-AW31XY/Q notebook. Fast processor, 2 SSDs, 18.4" display, 8GB ram AND a antiglare display.

BUT it's a wide gamut display and i'm a webdesigner. I didn't know there is such a huge difference between this and a "normal" display. Red and green are oversaturated like hell.

My question: HOW or CAN i change the colors to "normal"? The point is, calibrating Photoshop or any other color managed software is no problem. But i need color mangagement for ANY other software too (Flash, Google Chrome and so on). There must be a solution.

Isn't there a tool that loads on startup where i can adjust the colors? Not only brightness, contrast and gamma levels but saturation and hue also?

Sony :: WinDVD BD Volume On Playback Low
I'm testing out my Blu-Ray drive and I notice that the volume on the playback in WinDVD is very low. I have to max out the volume in Win 7 just to be able to hear the audio through the notebook speakers.

The movie I'm testing is Ice Age 3. I have the DVD and the blu-ray version. The DVD plays very loud via WMP. The blu-ray volume leaves a lot to be desired.

Sony :: Speaker Volume On FW490
I notice a significant difference in volume levels on my FW490. When listening to music via iTunes, or to Sirius online, the levels are adequate. However when I watch a dvd (Bluray or regular), even after turning the speaker volume as high as it will go, the volume is very weak. Is this normal? Headphone volume is fine btw. Is there a setting that boost volume when playing dvd's? Otherwise I will be buying notebook speakers.

Sony :: Vaio CW Sound Volume
Just got my vpccw26fw from best buy, love everything on it except the sound volume. The 100% sound volume on the CW is not even louder than the 50% on my Z.

Is this a driver issue or the hardware is built like that?

Is there any software to increase the sound volume?

Sony :: Volume Indicator/Brightness
As of 3 days ago I deleted the Sony Event Service from my Vaio FW and now the volume indicator doesn't show up nor does it work when I press the function button along with F5 or F6 for brightness.

I installed the Event Service again and I am thoroughly stumped.

Fixed it myself XD

Do you guys know what is wrong with it?
The laptop's warranty expired about 3 months ago.

Sony :: Volume And Multimedia Keys Are Not Working CS Windows 7
I just could not get multimedia keys and volume keys to work (the ones above the F keys, next to the power button)

I have just upgraded my VGN-CS11S/Q to Windows 7 - 64 Bit. I have updated the FEPD driver via windows update, and installed the utilities in following order:

Sony Shared Library
Vaio Event Service
Setting Utility Series

but no luck. Than, I have reformatted the system (actually, I have restored the image file, but is was a clean installation without any utils / drivers anyway) and installed the utilities in another order as follows:

Vaio Event Service
Sony Shared Library
Setting Utilitiy Series

still no luck. FN keys does work, and little OSD screen comes up as well when I use FN + volume up - volume down keys. But multimedia keys and volume keys (which is the one with lights) insisting on not working.

Dell :: SLI Option Suddenly Disappeared In My XPS1730?
So after installing the new 185 drivers a couple of weeks ago, I turned on SLI, restarted, and forgot about it.

Now I just checked the nvidia panel and there is no option to turn on SLI. I went to device manager and only one 8800m gtx is listed there when there used to be 2... seems like the computer doesn't even see the second GPU.

tried reinstalling the drivers but still only one gpu is showing up...

HP/Compaq :: 8530w Fingerprint Reader Just Disappeared
Just the other day, I was using the fingerprint reader in my EliteBook, when it suddenly refused to log me into the pre-boot authentication; I had to use a password, instead. Now, it seems my fingerprint reader has (electrically) ceased to exist -- it doesn't appear in device manager under Windows or in lsusb under Linux, and the option to "Swipe Finger or Choose Token" at the preboot authentication screen. Does anyone know what would cause this? The first candidate I can think of is the motherboard.

In addition, my system has started behaving oddly when resuming from suspend -- most of the time, resuming from suspend results in the laptop hard-rebooting about 1/2 second later, and then loop back to the BIOS logo a couple of times before going on and booting.

My question: do I just have to send it in for repair, or is there something else I can do?

When I bought the laptop customized, HP did not offer the option for a webcam; ideally, I'd really like to just pay them the difference and have them add a webcam while they're taking the thing apart, anyway. Is there any way to get HP to do this? If anything, they could probably just swap the GPU with another laptop (a preconfigured one with same specs, but nvidia), so I'd have the same specs with ATI, and now a webcam.

HP/Compaq :: Display- Flickering, And Glitches In The Display
I am having some flickering, and glitches in the display, and it seems, that it depends on the lcd position. It starts after I open the display, or sometimes after the laptop has been in use for a long time. It happened before, and the hp service replaced the lcd, saying that was a faulty one, but now, with the new one, is starting again. Is a bad replacement? I have to worry for the videocard? or motherboard? I spent 350uss on the new lcd, and I really hope is the replacement.

Sony :: VPCF115FM Display
just bought myself a Sony VPCF115FM, and love it. I live in Australia although i think this notebook is from the US as it had some BestBuy software on it when i first turned it on.. anyway..

I was just wondering, is it possible to put the brightness up higher? I went into control panel, then hardware, then display and it was already at it's highest, then i pressed the 'Fn' key and then kept pressing F6, and that too was already at its highest, but comparing the display to my mates Asus, or my other mates Toshiba, their displays are so much more brighter then my Sony, so is there ANY way at all to make it brighter? Also, is there any configuring i could do to the display to make it better in any way or form?

One more question, about the backlit keyboard, is it possible to keep it lit on at all times? I've heard there's a sensor somewhere, where if i block it with some tape, it will leave it on all the time? If so where abouts is it? Had a bit of a look but to no avail.

Sony :: FZ: Display Noise
I have FZ21S with original Vista Home. The only reason I didnt settle for XP was exactly the dimmer noise, any other setting than full brightness had the annoying noise.

It wasnt the case on Vista, used it for over a year without issues but since couple of days I have it on Vista too. It is the kind of dimmer or broken fluorescent lamp kind of buzz.

I doubt it is hardware fault, more likely something messed up with the Nvidia driver.

Another Nvidia driver , it is the latest Sony Support update -

I suggest you try this before voting if you did not already tweaked your monitor profile: Vaio_F11 Monitor Profiles Roundup & US glossy vs. EU Premium Displays.

From the FAQ: "You may view the current results for a poll before you vote by clicking the 'View Results' link". Click any blue number to see all the user names.

So non-Vaio_F11 owners, don't skew the results as we can see your user name.

Sony :: Vaio Sz Display / Graphics
I've problems starting my Vaio SZ2. They occured one day without changing anything (Hardware or Software) before.

If i push the power button, the screen backlight turns on but remains grey/black. No vaio logo, no boot screen, no bios access! I unscrewed the whole computer (3 years old) and checked all the cables. Then i released the screen cable from the graphic chip and tried booting with an external display! And that worked!

It seems to be a problem of the display/display cable or the graphic card.

Sony :: Vaio F: Choosing The Display While In Customization
How much would the difference in the Display be if I choose:

i) 16.4" VAIO Display (1600x900) with NVIDIA® GeForce® 310M GPU (512MB VRAM)

While customizing the F instead of:

ii) 16.4" VAIO Premium Display (1920x1080) with NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M GPU (1GB VRAM)

The second option is Full HD and seems to have a more powerful graphics card but I heard with the first one I would have more battery life?

What are the positives and negatives of each?

I just bought a second-hand Sony Vaio TZ 390, which came with Vista. I updated to Windows 7 and installed all the drivers. Everything seems to work but I cannot get the Vaio TZ to output to the external display. What happens is the external lcd gets a signal initially when I turn on the Vaio TZ (connected to the lcd) but it loses the signal shortly after I log into Windows 7. Btw, the lcd I use is a Samsung 2333HD.

I want to be able to run a Powerpoint presentation where the slides are being shown on a big screen and the notes are shown on the laptop screen. I understand this has to be done thru a dual monitor type of setup. Can I test this without actually hooking up the big screen or does it automatically go into a dual monitor mode when you plug in the second monitory. When I select presenter view it says I don't have a second monitor.
