Sony VGN-CR508E Drivers for XP


Doubtful but have a look.

~To download drivers and specific software;

Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.

After installing windows 7 the built in webcam on my sony vaio (VGN-CR35G) and all functional buttons stopped working. How can I solve this?


It doesn't look like there are any... the ONLY shot you have is to try compatibility mode. Here is how to Install them so they MAY work. Download your XP driver you wish to install. If it's in a zip/rar file then extract it to your desktop. You should have a simple .exe file sitting on your desktop to install the drivers, as normal for XP. Right click the .exe file and select "Properties". Then select the tab called "Compatibility" Now check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" Make sure "Windows XP Service Pack 2" is highlighted. Now apply the settings and run the installer. This should work for most drivers, but not all
If a 64bit system, Try Installing as Administrator. If you use a 64 bit system turn digital driver signing OFF. (F8 at boot up & select).

Sims 3 keeps crashing


Maybe you have enough video memory, but the way your video card processes all the graphics is less than enough to what SIMS 3 requires.

Please take a look at the sims 3 requirements and read the review about your laptop below.

EA has released the minimum system requirements for The Sims 3, which is out on February 20.

The specs, which emerged on site Gaming Today,show both desktop and laptop minimum requirements, though it should bestressed that the game probably won't run like butter on these rigs.

See the specs below:

PC / Desktop
XP (Service Pack 2)
Pentium IV 2.0 GHz / Athlon XP 2000+
1 GB Memory
Graphics
GeForce FX 5900 / Radeon 9500
Graphics Ram
128 MB

Vista (Service Pack 1)
Pentium IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+
1.5 GB Memory
GeForce FX 5900 / Radeon 9500
128 MB Graphics RAM


Laptop
XP (Service Pack 2)
Processor Pentium IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+
1.5 GB Memory
GeForce Go 6200 / Radeon mobile 9600
128 MB Graphics RAM

Vista (Service Pack 1)
Pentium IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+

GeForce Go 6200 / Radeon mobile 9600
128 MB Graphics RAM


This is Situation Publishing Ltd. review:

With the advent of Intel's Core 2 Duo processors we're at lastbeginning to see the kind of power and portability that was beingclaimed, somewhat optimistically, back in the early days of notebookcomputing. Not one to miss out, Dell has rolled out its Core 2 Duobased Inspiron 6400...The 6400, like so much of the Dell range, comes in a variety ofuser-defined guises so bear this in mind when it comes to theperformance numbers and features I'll be making reference to. Indeed,in the time we've had the notebook, a Dell special offer has upped thememory to 2GB from the two 512MB modules of DDR 2 SDRAM featured in ourversion.

Our particular model also came equipped with Intel's impressive newmobile Core 2 Duo processor, the T7200, which ticks along at 2.0GHz offa 667MHz frontside bus. 4MB of shared L2 cache helps speed things alongtoo. Like the entire mobile range of Core 2 Duo processors it operatesat between 1.0375V and 1.3V and runs comparatively cool for its speed.
Furthermore, our test unit arrived with an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400graphics chip and not the X1300 currently offered on Dell's website asstandard for all but the most basic version of the 6400. The X1400upgrade will set you back around £47 and is probably worth the extramoney seeing as the X1300 combined with the 15.4in WSXGA+ screen willnot be compatible with Windows Vista. In addition all models - again,except the basic one - now come equipped with an 8x dual-layer DVD°R/RWdrive. The hard disk is a Samsung 120GB SATA unit which should fend offobsolescence over the life of the notebook

VerdictWith a base price - for the T7200 Core 2 Duo - of £789 inc. VAT andshipping, the Inspiron 6400 is an excellent and affordable route intothe Core 2 Duo world. It has all the credentials to be a dependablemultimedia companion with its great screen, comprehensive connectivityand decent processing power. But be aware it's neither exciting to lookat nor to game on!


Best of luck

Optical drive sony viao vgn fs840/w won't register


try downloading the VIAO update tool
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFS840W&upd_id=2775&os_id=7

this will ensure you have the latest software + drivers for your system.

problems with CD drives tend to be problems with the IDE drivers, so it may be a good idea to download the latest Chipset drivers either directly from sony (or using the tool above)
or downloading from the intel website
