Re: vaio laptop volume problem

What version of windows are you runing? If it's pre xp it's probably nothing you are doing, windows's likes to corrupt itself over time. You can bypass your on keyboard volume by right clicking on the speaker icon in your system tray (lower right corner where your clock is) and click open audio properties, everything can be controlled in here. Good Luck

Hi my sony vaio is very quiet is there a setting I am meant to change to make it louder? also the volume buttons seem to be on the F keys i cant this to work

Press and hold the Fn Key and press the volume key (repeatedly) and see if it increases the volume.
Also, you may look out for volume (sound) settings from the control pannel to increase the volume.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have sony vaio vgn a215z and volume buttons don't work

if the function key of your keyboard not working, the primary reason is the chipset driver of your mainboard not installed. you need to load your cd/dvd driver to your cd/dvd rom then you can find the list of drivers and select the chipset driver click it and follow screen instruction after installation restart and done. be sure to locate the chipset driver base of your OS.
