Yes, you need to try to locate the program folder and attempt to delete it. or you can use the KillBox program that will force delete the program. If you would like that send me a email jcamphelp@hotmail.com and I'll send that to you....

Explain could not run it's TV please? Are you saying you cannot connect the laptop to a TV?

Have you selected PC or HDMI as your input source on the TV? Have you hit the FN Function Key on the laptop + the corresponding F1 thru F12 key that displays the image on the TV?

Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that displays on the tv. The correct F1 thru F12 key will probably have LCD/CRT on it or it might have the icon of a display.

What is best CD-R media to use with this drive?


Boy, a difficult question. Everyone will give you a different answer. I've found generic disks to be just fine, but many folks will tell you to go with a major brand. I must admit that I lean toward that.
So, you should safely be able to do a good job with Sony, HP, etc. Can't remember all the choices right off.
Like in all other areas, if you go with a brand you recognize and with a company that has been in business a long time and you trust, you hardly ever go wrong.
But be advised--just because the company name is on it doesn't mean they actually manufactured it!

Couldnt Find fingerprint equipment


Hi,

Let me elaborate on what the other two were telling you. First, your fingerprint reader is a scanner, if it is showing up as a scanner then you have the device installed. Second it may not have the right driver installed so that the biometric software doesn't realize it's the right device.

First you need to install the driver from the backup you made for the fingerprint scanner. If it doen't work or is not on the backup then you neew to go to www.acer.com pick your region, then get into the driver downloads for your model. You will need the full model # ex AS5730-54857 off the bottom of the laptop to get into the downloads. Once you're in download the newest update for the finger print scanner.

Once you have that installed it should show up properly in the device manager and the biometric software should recognize it. It is always important to install the drivers before the software for these devices as otherwise they will not work. The software installer needs to see the proper device at the time it installs, so if the biometric software is currently installed, remove it then proceed with installing/updating the driver.

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.

-i just bought a used sony vaio vgn-fe650 it works great except for the sound cant get any sound- not even on earphones- help!


Go to start, control panel, administrative tools, computer management, device manager. Look for a yellow question mark. Right click and update or install driver. Make sure you let windows search online when it asks you. Good luck.
