I purchased Vaio VGN-ns21m keyboard dont function f1 f2... canc


i guess f1, f2, and all the function keys are given with added fn key in the left corner of the keypad. search for the blue icon with fn in the keypad. that should solve it. press fn along with the key you want to use.

How i can control the brightness of my sony vaio notebook computer


there is probably a key on the bottom left of the keyboard that has a blue fn on it and somewhere else on the keyboard there will be a key with a blue sun looking thing with an up arrow on it and another key with a blue sun looking thing with a down arrow. hold the fn key and push the up arrow sun thing to make it brighter and the down one to make it dimmer

FN keys don't work on Sony VAIO VGN-SZ18GP


The solution is as follows, which worked for me:

- Install Windows 7
- let it update all the drivers that it needs to
- Install additional Sony drivers that you need (XP drivers work just fine, but make sure to install them in Administrator mode, so, Run as Administrator), such as camera, fingerprint scanner, etc
- Install the Notebook Control Device Driver (without this the other software does nothing)
- Sony Utilities DLL
- Sony Shared Library

* restart computer *

- Sony Video Shared Library
- SUS (Setting Utility Series)

* restart computer *

- VES (VAIO Event Service)

After this one the Fn keys will start to work. The S1 and S2 keys don't work due to something to do with UAC (but I don't need them anyway)

- VAIO Control Centre (will allow you to change what the S1 and S2 keys do, even though you can't use them :) )

That's it and it worked for me.

Sony Vaio VGN-FW25 function Key is not working


If you have downgraded, it means you reformatted your hard drive and installed a new operating system.
Now you must go to Sony's site and download the drivers for the motherboard, as they are not included in Windows.
You should be able to find your model at this link:

Good luck

Blank screen laptop


Your SONY should respond to the following:

Look for the blue FN key, hold it down (use it like a shift key)
While holding it, look for a key, also printed in blue with a picture that is half sun/half moon. On my laptop is the F8 key. As you press the key watch the screen to see if gets lighter.

Good Luck!

Vaio PCG-K86P


The fn key acts much like the shift key on your keyboard,,it is used to access the extra key functions which will be marked or written in blue on your key's.
They are supposed to be there.
