Keyboard probs sony Vaio vgn-a215z

Hi; have recently re-installed xp on my laptop (sony vaio VGN A215Z), however some of the keys aren't working (namely n, m, v, x, left cursor arrow, return and the windows key)
I've tried uninstalling the drivers, updating them with the ones from Sony viao-link website and shouting at the laptop, but none of these seem to work.

As far as I've worked out what the problem is, is that the keyboard drivers are for a 101 key one, whereas the laptop has an 87 key keyboard; however now I'm well stumped, when I uninstall the drivers windows reboots and automatically re-installs the same ones; and when I try update with the sony ones it says they aren't any better than the present ones, so won't install them...

...Anynow, I'm well out of ideas so would appreciate any help...

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.

Some keys on Sony Vaio VGN FS830w stopped working


Hi:
Most of the time it is a keyboard failure. You can troubleshoot this by plugging in an external keyboard and seeing how that works, but most of the time it is your keyboard. They are not expensive on ebay, maybe $15 + shipping, and not hard to change

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
