Hi. I my fn keys no longer work in the sony vaio FS285B


The problem is that the Fn Hotkey Utility breaks when XP SP2 or some other patch goes on. You can fix this by using the Vaio Recovery Wizard. Click on it, then Proceed With System Recovery, Custom Recovery, Application Recovery. Select HotKey Utility then Repair. It takes a reboot and works after that.

This is a skill you will get good at with a Vaio as it seems that every driver update or patch from Microsoft will break something.

I hope this helps!

Hi.

In order to use the Function keys, download and install the two Applications mentioned below:

1) Sony Shared Library:

http://s02.download.sony.com/US/pc/SOASSL-10133900-US.EXE

2) Sony Notebook Utilities:

http://s02.download.sony.com/US/pc/SOOOTH-41300000-XP.EXE

Once you have downloaded both the Applications, install them and restart the Computer for the settings to take effect.

Once you have restarted the Computer, you should be able to use the Function Keys.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to contact for further assistance.

Thank you.

I can't find the the hotkey utility application from the sony web site.model is VGN-NR160E. Tks !


To enable the Function keys in the Computer, it is required to install VAIO Event Services. In older Computers, the application was called Hotkey Utility and in the newer Models, VAIO Event Services is used to enable the Function keys. You can download the VAIO Event Services (Notebook Utility) from the link below.

My fn button doesn't work


WHAT TO INSTALL?
To get the Hotkeys working your Vaio laptop requires THREE different components/sets of software installed, these are:

'Hotkey drivers'
'Sony Shared Library'
'Sony Utils'

Once you install these three components & restart your Vaio laptop your Hotkeys should be working. These are all unobtrusive files that will only enhance your Vaio machine however alternatively you can install Sony's Powerpanel or Batteryscope programs to perform the similar features.

Most these files are written for specific Vaio models however there is some overlapping and files from similar Vaio models may work with your own laptop.

WHERE TO FIND THESE FILES?
There are various online resources relating to this topic however the best place to find these files is the one below.

ftp://ftp.vaio-link.com/pub/VAIO/ORIGINAL

Using that site, find your model number & download the relevant 'Utilities' file. You might also find useful the link below, which may help with this task and/or others (including RAM upgrade advice etc)

http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk

It took many reinstalls to work out the order and what programmes needed to be installed to get the hotkeys working & I purposefully took hours doing so, noting each step I made so this guide could be written and save time for others.

Reformatted HD , Function keys not working


I don't think so. It could be a hardware problem. Take it to the service center OR if you have any diagnostic utility scan for hardware fault.
