Not all operating systems are compatible with all peripherals as you have found out. When that happens you have to bite the bullet and purchase a component that will work in the new environment. Sorry.

There is a specific set of driver you have to install for your computer, Vaio laptops use the ACPI fucnction to control hardware access like volume / brightness control etc
You need the ACPI driver installed for Fn key to work
Install Sony Notebook Control Driver for windows vista
Install Sony Utils.dll
Install Sony Shared Library
same for your sd card reader just reinstall the drivers

sony only supports the factory shipped os drivers you will have to find the drivers for 7 elsewhere or reinstall your factory os

I own a sony VGN-BX51VN. My motion eye and cd have stopped working. They are not even recognised. Could it be microsoft update that has done this. Any help appreciated. Alan


Ok #1: Your laptop is kinda old so drivers for it are no longer on the sony website
Except for driverguide.com (create an account there and go to this web page ONLY AFTER you get a user name and password for this website (drivers guide):

http://members.driverguide.com/driver_search.php?q=sony+VGN-BX51VN&si=ae5792ce7519cfe183df166dd2c4f66c&st=1269003423&gqm0=sony+VGN-BX51VN

All your drivers are there, unless you already have the recovery disks and they have the driver in them too.

Ok when you get your divers, you would need to do 2 checks first to see if the hardware on both the web cam and the cd drive is working.

Do this first for cd drive: FOLLOW EVERYTHING VERY CAREFULLY BELOW:
1) in COMMAND type REGEDIT

2) CLICK on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

3) CLICK on SYSTEM

4) CLICK on CURRENTCONTROLSET

5) CLICK on CONTROL

6) CLICK on CLASS

7) VERY VERY CAREFULLY: CLICK ONCE ON THE FIRST REGISTRY RIGHT UNDER THE WORDS CLASS

8) Using the up and down keys on your keyboard: move the highigh down the list SLOWLY until you see the Title "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES" on the RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE REGISTRY EDITOR UNDER THE WORDS DATA.

9)VERY VERY VERY VERY CAREFULLY ERASE ONLY THESE FOLLOWING WORDS:

ANYTHING THAT SAYS LOWER FILTERS AND ANYTHING THAT SAYS UPPER FILTERS
After that close all windows and reboot the pc.

Check the dvd drive again with a dvd movie and an audio cd and a software program.

If everything works, the issue was just a corrupted dvd registry,if it does not reslove this cd/dvd drive issue, then the drive is defective and needs replaceing.

NEXT for the motion eye camera:

Before reinstalling the diver for the camera, run virus scan and utility software to ensure no rogue sofware is disrupting the cameras performance

If eveything is ok (no viruses and all software is in order), reinstall the web cam driver.

Reboot the pc and retest the camera to see if it works

If camera does not work, its defective and needs replacment.

Hope this helps (write a good review for me) and write me to tell me what happend :)

You may try with these troubleshooting steps.

These steps are applicable for either Windows XP or Vista OS. But you can perform the same in the Windows 7 OS.

Option 1: Try installing Sony Registry Update for CD/DVD Drives:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNNR180E&upd_id=2031&os_id=28

Option 2: Try deleting UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry values as mentioned:

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C299114


http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C501168


The exact solution is delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters Registry values and then restart the Computer.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
