Sony :: 1 Year Old Vgn-fw180d Windows 7, Whats This No Driver Support

Oct 22, 2009

I went to check out the sony esupport website for my model number to see if sony put official drivers for Windows 7.

What I get on the support page is

"The hardware configuration of this model does not meet the minimum system requirements needed to run and provide the full experience of the Windows® 7 operating system.

Windows® 7 installation is not recommended and Sony will not be providing Windows® 7 drivers for this model.

* Have another question?

Windows® 7 provides great new features to enhance your computing experience.

Visit our online store SonyStyle® where you can choose from a wide variety of VAIO computers that come with Windows® 7 preinstalled. "

What is this? A laptop I bought a year ago with duo cpu p8600 @2.40GHz and 4 GB ram. Will not run windows 7 adequately? Thats funny because I have been running Windows 7 since the early betas and currently run the 64bit RC.

Sony :: Gaming With VGN-Z750D

Nov 27, 2009

I just sold my SZ650N and upgraded to a Z750D my previous laptop had vista, and this one has W7. Previous laptop was a 2.2Ghz and my new is one 2.66ghz and everything else is faster and better than my previous one.

Well im not sure what im doing wrong, but i downloaded the latest video driver to be up to date, and i tried to run some games that my SZ650 was able to run just fine, but with the Z750 it seems like its stuggling more, fan seems also louder as its working to hard, and sometimes the game would go black, and i would have to hit a few buttons to end up at the main menu or back in the game. few times the game would crash... im not very impressed with this laptop, unless windows 7 has some settings different or this laptop has some different features that i dont know about? I tried playing in "performance" mode (by hitting one of the buttons to go from silen, balanced, performance)

I just reformatted the laptop with Vista. Then i received my W7 CD upgrade and upgraded with a fresh reformat.

is there any online test i can run or something i can do to get some stats on my laptops performance to get an idea of whats going on, or some settings adjusted?

Sony :: SR Vs. Z Gaming Perfromance

Apr 28, 2009

For some reasons I thought that the SR's 3470 video will perform better than the Z's 9400GS. however, I just talked to sony's rep and he told me that it is quite the opposite. He told me that I would experience superior gaming (not by a big margin tho) with the Z series laptops.

Sony :: Is The UPDATED Vaio Cw Any Good For Gaming

Jan 9, 2010

First of all, I know that this isn't the place for "what laptop should I buy" threads, but I have a few questions that I think owners might have an easier time answering. I was looking for a portable laptop that could also handle gaming,

and I think the VAIO CW, which has been updated, is right for me. However, what I am most concerned about is the 310M graphics card that has been introduced. I was planning on getting it with the 230M, but it is no longer an option. For anyone with experience/knowledge how does the 310M fare? Cause I was ok with the 230M, but the 210M didn't seem good enough for me.

In addition, battery life is a big concern as well, because I will be taking the laptop to classes and stuff. I plan on buying the extended battery as a backup, but again, if anyone has experience .....

Sony :: VPC-Z112GX/S Approximate Gaming Framerates MW2/TF2

Mar 11, 2010

MW2 with native resolution (1600 x 900), No AA, No to all the special effects, Extra quality Textures and Map Resolutions set to Normal.

I get about 50 on some tree heavy multiplayer maps but anywhere from 70-90 on other multiplayer maps.

As far as TF2 goes I get about 100fps on most maps. haven't tried L4D or L4D2 yet.

I didn't get any choppiness attributable to the computer.


The fan on the side starts up and probably goes to full speed blowing out some hot air while playing MW2 but it goes back down during map interims.
The keyboard doesn't seem to get too hot around the wrist rest in fact it doesn't even seem to get warm.


Are really poor but what do you expect? At least the machine comes with some headphones. I don't have any experience with any noise canceling headphones so I can't say if they're any good with that respect.

This laptop really packs a punch. Diablo 3 and SCII should run just fine!

Sony :: Notebook For Work And GAMING, Which Series

Feb 14, 2010

What is the creme de la creme in Sony notebooks that are gaming capable? Gaming for me are Strat games, Starcraft 2, maybe Crysis....

I want something solid, and at least midrange with respect to gaming. I don't care how much it costs.

I haven't checked Sony in a long long time and F series, CW, etc are confusing and I need to get up to speed quickly. Quality is paramount.

Dell :: Whats Faster 120GB SSD Or Raid ZERO

Oct 27, 2008

Picked up a great deal on a 1730 with a 128SSD and 320 2nd drive - Does anyone know if the 120 will be faster than if I were to go with 2 7200 rpm drives? The price difference for the SSD is "UP THERE" so I at least want to know if its as fast as a conventional 2 hard drive raid zero approach.

Also does anyone have any links to spec's for the Dell 128SSD? Is it the Memoright 128GB.

Dell :: Whats This Line Acrosss The Screen

Sep 17, 2008

when i start up internet explore for the first time, i get a thin line that run's right across my screen, but when i minimize IE and maximise it again its gone. it only seems to be there when i first start up IE.

this was a response i got from another forum.

"My psychic powers tell me you have a graphics card with poorly written drivers. You should check to see if there is an update available from the manufacturer. Then install it. Reboot. See if your problem goes away"

i have had a brand new motherboard fitted today, and this problem was there beforehand, i also have the latest drivers installed.
