Question about Sony VAIO PCG-Z1WAMP1 Notebook

1 Answer

Vista driver Hi When I upgraded my laptop to Vista Ultimate, I realized that there was no Vista driver for the graphics card I have. So when I upgraded, Windows created its own driver to let me use the graphics card. I accidentally disabled the driver and I don't know how to get it back on. When I go to the place I disabled the driver from, I can't find anything. Does anybody know how to get the Microsoft Windows driver back? Thanks Deez Khara

I can't connect an external HF199H monitor, on a 2007 MacBook 3,1 running Windows 7. Help??


ok so for clarification, you are using a MacBook w/ a dual boot to windows 7 Ultimate? and after the update from Vista it now is not detecting your external display.

If I am correct, your graphics card is most likely an NVidia chip set. Do some research and find your specific graphics card, go to the NVidia website and download the most up to date drivers for it and try again. If you have done this already, try emailing them and find out if your graphics card is compatible w/ windows 7 or if the driver was specifically designed for vista. That's where I would start.

Good luck finding Vista Drivers if the manufacturer doesn't have them. some things you can force XP drivers to work on Vista /7 i'll let you know right now if your graphics card isn't supported with Windows 7 your SOL using the standard VGA adapter driver. you can't force XP graphics drivers... Windows 7 graphics drivers are WDDM drivers not XPDM. i just went through this with my Dell latitude D610 laptop.

(this isn't part of the answer it's just my experience with vista/7 display drivers)

Microsoft said because the Intel 915GM is lacking hardware scheduling it doesn't meet WDDM standards and Intel can't release a WDDM driver for it. so i'm stuck with standard VGA with No Aero and a system rating of 1.0 because of graphics while everything else is at a 3.2 or higher. i guess for me its back to XP...... or vista (LOL ya right)

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

Toshiba


If you upgraded from XP to Vista and didn't exceed the minimum system requirements for Vista, then that is why your laptop is "struggling to work". You should have done a compatibility check before the upgrade to see what upgrades you might have needed to install Vista, such as RAM (usually adding the maximum amount of RAM that your MotherBoard will accept/recognize will get you going with Vista. Otherwise to get your laptop back to speed you can reinstall XP (XP runs on a lot less resources than Vista requires). You mention a graphics card, and I can't imagine one that would require you to upgrade to Vista yet, though I could be wrong.
Good Luck.
