Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FJ270/B Notebook

1 Answer

Sony Fj270 upgraded to vista ultimate, now cannot restore among other things.

I upgraded my Sony FJ270 laptop from XP Pro to Vista Ultimate. Vista made my fn keys stop working and also now i cannot use the restore feature.

I have a restore disk and when I try to use it it says something along the lines of:

"Cannot use this disk to restore computer, please verify your model.".

I really just want to restore my operating system back to xp because vista is eating up my performance.

Any assistance is much appreciated.


Sincerely,

Chris

    Thanks for the help!

OK YOU NEED A DISK WIPE/ HARD DRIVE WIPE THERE ARE A TONE OF THEM ON EBAY FOR GOOD PRICES BUT MAKESHURE THAT YOU GET THE ONES ON DISK NOT A DOWNLOAD OR USE THE INSTAL DISK FROM THE WIN VISTA AND FOLOW THE STEPS AS BOOT FROM THE DISK AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS UNTILL YOU GET TO THE PARTITION SPOT, THERE YOU JUST NEED TO DEL THE PARTITION AND THEN CLOSE THE INSTAL, EJECT THE DISK , REBOOT , AND BOOT FROM YOUR WIN XP DISK AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM THERE ON

SEE WINDOWS WONT LET YOU INSTALL A PREVIOUS VERSION OF ITS SELF BUT I WOULD USE A WIPE DISK SO YOU DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANY "BLADING" OF DATA

My sony vaio laptop was from japan. model VPCEB37FJ. I want to change the language from japaneese to english


The original language of the operating system cannot be changed without also updating the associated driver files, and those driver files are not available in languages other than the one that ships on the computer. However, the operating system can be configured to display in a different language by upgrading to the Ultimate version of the Vista operating system and then installing and using the appropriate Windows Vista language pack.






To change the language settings, a language pack must first be installed. Follow this procedure to download and install a language pack.

  1. Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel .
  2. In the Control Panel window, click Clock, Language, and Region .
  3. In the Clock, Language, and Region window, under Region and Language , click Install or uninstall display languages .
  4. Under Choose to install or uninstall display languages , choose Install display languages .

  5. Under Choose your method of install , choose Launch Windows Update

  6. Under Select the updates you want to install , select the Language Packs to install and click the OK button.

    NOTE: The Language Pack updates will be listed under the optional updates .

My camera it not support for win 7, 32bit, please tell me why not thanks


Hi,

The Computer model VGNFJ270/B was shipped with XP OS and Sony had provided an upgrade path to Windows Vista. Sony does not recommend installing any other OS in the computer, as they are the OEM manufacturer of the product, they will know which features may fail to work with a new environment.
The drivers are tested to work with XP and Vista environment.

However, as we have seem that Vista drivers had generally worked with Windows 7 OS, I would suggest that you try installing the Vista Drivers for the camera and check if it helps:

Install VAIO® Camera Capture Utility:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFJ270B&upd_id=3604&os_id=27

Then, install Sony® Camera Filter Driver Update

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFJ270B&upd_id=2471&os_id=27

And install VAIO® Camera Utility Update

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFJ270B&upd_id=2465&os_id=27

Thanks!!!!

Upgrade to vista ultimate


If you have a full version of Windows Vista Ultimate, you can just insert the DVD when you logged in your laptop and go to Computer(My Computer) and lauch the installer for Windows on DVD icon (Double Click DVD icon). It will give you the main window for installing Windows and along the way, you should find an Upgrade option. Click that one and it will install windows Ultimate on your system. It Will not format the laptop but installer will just add system files and features to the laptop to run Vista Ultimate.

**If you haven't purhcase a Windows Vista Ultimate Disc, check this link to to purchase just an upgrade Disc (only) of Vista Ultimate.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

An upgrade disc will also not format the laptop instead it will just install additional features and add additional files on the system to run Windows Vista Ultimate

Does the fj270 recovery disk from ebay make the computer like new with a blank harddrive?


I am assuming you are going back to XP?
You will run into one major problem with this process, Vista is based of Windows NT which uses a NTFS file system. XP uses the old file system of FAT32, so just wiping the hard drive probably won't work. You will have to go into your partition and re-partition your hard drive before you intall the recovery disk.
If the recovery disk is designed for your computer then yes it will restore it to all factory defaults (including drivers and software that originally came with it.
If you are not sure how to do the partition then let me know I will try to guide you through it.

Help fix my laptop


Nope, there is currently no support for that within Vista, try using the XP driver directly; and when installing it click on "Continue Anyway".

Good luck!
