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!!!!

Press the Function (Fn) key again to deactivate it.

Please check if the "NUM LOCK" is enabled. If it is enabled then press it to disable to resolve the letter/number key issue.

You may disable the Function key by removing the VAIO Event Services Utility or HKSERV Utility from the Startup.

1. Click on the Start, select RUN, in Run command type: msconfig and press the Enter key.

2. In the MS Configuration Utility, un-check the VAIO Event Services Utility or HKSERV Utility and then click on Apply then OK.

3. Then, restart the Computer. This will disable the Function key in the Computer.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!

Sony vaio vgn-nr160e with vista, function+ keys wont work


Hi,
To enable the Fn keys functionality, you need to install the "Vaio Event Service" and "Sony Utility Series"
They are available to download as part of a package from the Sony website. Here is the link:

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.

02. Install Sony Shared Library [AR51] and Restart when prompted

03. Install Sony Utilities DLL & Settings Utility Series [BX4]

04. Install VAIO Event Service. Select Custom and Check VESUnique and Sound [BX4]

05. Copy AR51 Vista VESConfig.ini (from attached zip file) to folder C:\Program Files\Sony\VAIO Event Service

06. Start - Run services.msc

07. Find Vaio Event Service in the Services list and Restart the Service.


Your Fn and EJECT Buttons should now work.
