First verify if the Windows 7 Operating System is compatible with your computer model from the sony support page for your compauter. Check the list of compatible operating system and if the drivers are available.
If the Windows 7 Operating System installed is supported then, install the Sony Shared library, Sony Notebook Utilities and VAIO event Service Update if available.
This should resolve the issue.
However, if the issue persists and the Windows 7 Operating system is not supported by the computer, the only resort will be to perfom recovery and install the windows Vista Operating System that was shipped by the manufacturer.

Have a Sony Vaio VGN-C21S laptop. I upgraded it from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Ultimate. Now, my AV Mode and other shortcut buttons for volume, camera, etc. are not working. What driver should I download...


Perform a Windows update first to see if there are updates to correct the drivers. Then if any drivers are still missing, go to the Sony website and locate the Windows 7 drivers for your computer model.

No funciona av mode de mi laptop vaio vgn-tx790p con windows vista


AV Mode button on the Computer will not work if the Sony AV Mode Button Utility is missing or not installed correctly in the Computer.

To resolve the issue, you will need to re-install the Sony AV Mode Button Utility in the Computer.

You can view and download the AV Mode Button Utility from here.

Please download the file to a temporary download folder in the Computer. After that, please open the folder where the file is downloaded and double click the file to begin the installation.
Then, please follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation process. After installation, please restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect. This should fix the issue.

Best of luck.

Sony vaio av mode button is stuck


You may disable the AV Mode feature from the VAIO Control Center Application.
The VAIO Control Center Application will be shipped with all the VAIO Computers which have the Windows Vista or 7 Operating Systems.
You may disable the AV Mode feature from this Application.
You may also disable much more features such as the Touchpad, Special keys(S1 and S2) etc, by using the VAIO Control Center.
Hope this helps.
