Question about Computers & Internet
Hi :) I'm having a problem with my new Logitech Mini Boombox wireless speaker set. I have installed a Bluetooth adapter and it works. The speakers and my laptop have paired. However, the volume immediately goes to mute as soon as the speakers and my laptop pair.Windows (Vista) will play its start-up sounds through the laptop's built in speakers, and the wireless speakers beep as they pair. It seems as though everything works, it's just the volume icon in the notification area is suddenly accompanied by a little white cross in a red circle (this is slightly different to my normal mute sign, which is a red circle with a red diagonal line across it with a white background ). If i switch off the speakers, the laptops internal speakers take over and the sound works fine again. I can use the fn keys to control the volume when the computer uses its internal speakers, but when the bluetooth pairing happens, I cannot. If I press Fn and F2 when the speakers are paired, a message pops up onto the screen that says "muting". Hope you can help me! I've tried loads of things already, nothing seems to be working!!

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.

Starbug1S1- This may have been something you have already checked but I will suggest anyways. You said you had control of your sound from other means - Sounds and Audio Devices properties was one- did you notice a check box that reads Place volume icon on the task bar. This may remedy part of your problem if you put a check in the box. Hopefully this helps. Thanks.
