I can't use FN+F5 to adjust brightness. From Sony Website, I know that in need of set up Sony Share Library for Win XP and HOtkey Utility application. I have already set up Sony Share Library for...


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.

VGN TX650P FN keys and AV buttons are not working after reinstalling windows and drivers.


i,

It depends how you reinstalled the OS in the computer, was it using the recovery discs or retail XP disc. Using recovery discs if you are installing, everything should work fine. This scenario may occur if you have used a retail OS disc to reinstall the OS.

Anyways try the below mentioned troubleshooting steps:

Install the Original Video Driver from the below link:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2149&os_id=7

After this install Origial VAIO Event Sevices:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX690P&upd_id=1975&os_id=7

Then, install VAIO Event Service Update.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2287&os_id=7

At last, install the AV Mode Utility app:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2040&os_id=7

Install the drivers in the same order, this should work. VAIO Event Services take cares about the FN keys, after installing all these drivers, restart the computer and check if the VAIO Event Service is running at the startup.

Thanks!!!!

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.

install windows from any bootable cd, no specific drivers are come for fn keys, it will work by default, then install the device drivers one by one.
