Question about Sony VAIO PCG-Z1WAMP1 Notebook
I recently upgraded my PCG-Z1 laptop to Vista, and all is fine except the function keys don't work, because Sony advised NOT to upgrade to Vista with my laptop since they had no drivers for it. I need to take my laptop with me very soon and I will need to use it on the plane, but battery life is minimal with full brightness. Is there any way to lower the brightness using Windows? Are there any good programs to let me adjust the brightness?
You really cannot adjust screen brightness through windows unless you have calibration software that uses a light detecting frame... I had a Sony Vaio PCG-something and Vista really screwed it up as well. Here's the Sony eSupport website where you can enter your model and reinstall some originals drivers for the computer that may restore functionality to your function keys:
Some things you can do to save battery power: turn of your wireless if you're not using it (there's usually a wifi switch on most laptops, turn it off), set your screen saver to come on as quickly as possible, run as few programs as possible and try to avoid graphic-intense programs.
