Question about Sony VAIO Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a VAIO SVE15114FXS. I believe this is a hardware problem, as it seems to be OS independent. Tested in Windows 8.1, Ubuntu (several versions). Do these systems share drivers? Unsure if it would matter. The symptoms are: Keyboard stops working Mouse stops working Screen will flicker when lid is moved Warnings: While booting into Ubuntu (flash drive installation): Something about lid close sensor Once the keyboard and mouse fail after booting, they will not work until the computer either sleeps, hibernates, or restarts. USB mice and keyboards do work.

The drivers for Windows 8.1 possibly not being installed can cause these problems. The drivers for each type of Operating System are different. When you install an operating system generic drivers are used and some of these will cause unusual problems. The Windows drivers are known to cause problems. Ubuntu drivers are usually installed with the Operating System. Drivers from the computer manufacturers can be downloaded for each Operating System.

My Sony VAIO Notebook VPCX11S1E wont boot up anymore. when i try it jyst goes to blue screen. How can i get iSony VAIO Notebook VPCX11S1E it to load up and start up normally.?


It seems that your machine is suffering a fatal error on startup. If the blue screen flashes up with some non-sensical writing on it then that is the error I speak of. This condition can be caused by a faulty piece of hardware, most commonly the hard disk drive in my experience. BUT it can also be just a faulty file in the Operating System on your machine and may not be a hardware problem at all.

Either way, the first ting I would do in your position is to reinstall your Operating System. You are using Windows 7 I see. Windows 7 is a good OS. In order to try to recover your computer you will need an original Windows 7 DVD disk. Insert the disk into the DVD drive and then follow the instructions at this like here...

How can i see files created in windows os after installing ubuntu 14.04 tls


when you computer turns on it should automatically ask you what os you would like to boot from. on a side note of you go into your harddrive you should find a folder named "windows" or
"windows old" and all the files you saved should be in there. seems to me that u install'd ubuntu over windows and now only have ubuntu on your computer... but you should still have that windows folder if you chose not to delete you files.making a new partition does not mean you will have 2 os's on your computer... hope this all helps.

Canon imageclass d880 info


What OS is the Vaio running? Canon has drivers for the 32-bit versions of Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The Windows 7 driver may work with Windows 8 32-bit in the compatibility mode. However, most computers with Vista and later versions of Windows have the 64-bit OS; the exception are some machines that came with 2 GB or less of memory when new. Canon did not create a 64-bit driver for the imageCLASS D880. To check your OS version, go to the System Control Panel. (XP, Vista and Windows 7: Start > Control Panel (in the right hand column) > System and Security > System. In Windows 8: press the Windows key + X and do the same steps.) Then read the version information, if x64 is included then the 32-bit drivers won't work.

If you do have the correct driver installed for your OS, try swapping your data cable and changing the USB port, if in use. Do not use a USB hub but a direct connection to the computer. Check the device manager to make sure that there are no problems with the hardware drivers. (As above, go to the control panel. Then either in Hardware or System and Security choose the Device Manager. From the Windows key+X, just choose the Device Manager.) Expand the section for the type of port you are using and look for a triangle with a red X or yellow exclamation point. Try updating or uninstalling the driver and then letting the correct driver load when you reboot the computer. (Check with Sony for the driver.)

Next try uninstalling the printer and removing the data cable from your computer. Then install the driver from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/office/imageclass_copiers/imageclass_d880/imageclass_d880#DriversAndSoftware . Then connect the printer to the computer when prompted to do so. Failure to install the Canon software first can interfere with the installation of the correct driver.

I hope this helps.

Voyetra midi orchestrator


The only Voyetra Midi Orchestra Plus software I can know was written for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. Thus there are several reasons for it to be incompatible with Windows 8. First, it was a 16-bit software; the most common Windows 8 installs use a 64-bit OS. This means that the OS has undergone a number of major changes. The installers are completely different (format/way of talking to the OS). The DLLs that communicate between the software and the OS have also changed. The drivers for MIDI devices will be totally different in the modern OS.

The documentation for Voyetra Midi Orchestra is available here: http://www.turtlebeach.com/support/files/241/ . It is a discontinued product and no one at the company that owns it will be writing a new version of the code for Windows 8. I'm not sure this software will work in Windows 7 32-bit. You might be able to use the software in a compatibility mode from a virtual version of XP. For Windows 7 Pro, Virtual PC and the XP mode package are available as free downloads and can be used if your hardware allows. Windows 8 Pro has Hyper-V but requires a licensed version of any Windows OS that you want to use. For non-pro versions of Windows software, you would need to buy a Pro upgrade. The alternative is to obtain another Virtual machine software (VMWare, for example) and a licensed copy of XP or an older version of Windows. (OEM Windows 7 Pro licenses are still available from many computer hardware vendors.)

I hope this helps.

(Many 32-bit device drivers don't work under Windows 8; older software that didn't run under Windows 7 have similar problems.)

I cannot get Ubuntu to load onto my Vaio PCV-RZ10. I have already partitioned the HDD with 30 Gig, loaded the OS (Ubuntu) I get a (Not Support) error message. Any ideas?


The problem is your computer is not compatable to run the Ubuntu operational system, it comes up not supported. But you can go online to forums that deal with these types of problems, because there are a lot of people out there that swear by this system.

I have an ASUS netbook that runs linux. I don't know linux, but was told to upgrade to ubuntu. I don't know how. Anyone know how?


1. I would suggest finding out which model Eee PC you are using and the hard drive size & type (4GB SSD, 160GB SATA, etc...). If you have less than 4GB, I would probably recommend using another Linux distro, as the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu is pretty heavy.

2. Next, I would probably suggest plugging in the Eee PC (Software/OS installation is very power intensive).

3. Download your distribution (Ubuntu Netbook Edition or Desktop, etc).

4. Download a copy of unetbootin for your PC (unetbootin.sourceforge.net -- There are Linux & Windows versions available.)

5. Using a USB thumb drive (USB Memory stick), you will want to wipe the drive (format using FAT/FAT32 filesystem).

6. Run Unetbootin, selecting the proper USB thumb drive & ISO image from the Ubuntu website.

7. After Unetbootin is finished, close it and safely disconnect the USB drive.

8. Next, plug the USB thumb drive into the Eee PC.

9. Turn on power to the Eee PC & after seeing the initial BIOS splash, hit the ESC key on the keyboard. This should bring up a boot selection screen. Using the arrow keys, select the appropriate USB drive and hit Enter (Return).

10. If all goes well, you should be running Ubuntu Desktop/Ubuntu Netbook Edition as a live desktop. (The installer is a link on the desktop.)

11. There are several step-by-step guides out there, so check them out, if needed. The installer should be very simple on this type of hardware, etc.

Good Luck!

I installed Ubuntu together with Windows XP but in the process I lost the ability to see (in none of the OS) the USB drives, how can I recover them?


In Ubuntu, go to Administrator/Hardware Driver Update. It will run an update to check drivers available against your hardware. BTW new version of Ubuntu available at the end of the week. Ubuntu Upgrade If that's unsuccessful, run a normal Ubunto Update to do a driver/support search. In XP, boot up,, insert your install disk and right-click on My Computer/Properties/Device Manager. There is an option at the top to "Scan for Hardware Changes". It should recognize the USB hardware. When it asks where to get the drivers, point it to your installation disk which should have all of your USB drivers on it.
Best of luck and enjoy Ubuntu!
