What default language did you select when you installed OS??
Which OS are you using?
Have you done a windows update for this yet??
Check device manager for any issues to resolve??
Maybe the selected setings need adjusting??

    I'm having the same problem in my VAIO VGN-FW235J.
    I switched to windows 7 Professional from Vista Home Premium lately and the Fn key's not doing what its supposed to do!! o.O

    I chose English International(US) as default language, and yes, i have been doing my windows updates every now and then.. The device manager's perfectly good, it says nothing's wrong!!

    RELP!! :(

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ230P. I am having difficulty downloading the Fn drivers (such as the volume, screen brightness, etc.) I have went...


There is a specific set of driver you have to install for your computer, Vaio laptops use the ACPI fucnction to control hardware access like volume / brightness control etc
You need the ACPI driver installed for Fn key to work
Install Sony Notebook Control Driver for windows vista
Install Sony Utils.dll
Install Sony Shared Library
same for your sd card reader just reinstall the drivers

sony only supports the factory shipped os drivers you will have to find the drivers for 7 elsewhere or reinstall your factory os

VGN TX650P FN keys and AV buttons are not working after reinstalling windows and drivers.


i,

It depends how you reinstalled the OS in the computer, was it using the recovery discs or retail XP disc. Using recovery discs if you are installing, everything should work fine. This scenario may occur if you have used a retail OS disc to reinstall the OS.

Anyways try the below mentioned troubleshooting steps:

Install the Original Video Driver from the below link:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2149&os_id=7

After this install Origial VAIO Event Sevices:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX690P&upd_id=1975&os_id=7

Then, install VAIO Event Service Update.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2287&os_id=7

At last, install the AV Mode Utility app:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNTX650PB&upd_id=2040&os_id=7

Install the drivers in the same order, this should work. VAIO Event Services take cares about the FN keys, after installing all these drivers, restart the computer and check if the VAIO Event Service is running at the startup.

Thanks!!!!

Fn key for laptop sony vaio vgn-s460p


the function keys doesnt need any extra driver.

but if you want to use tha additional features of function key like save, load, close and many more then you can get the software directly from official website of sony. alternativel you can download hotkeycontrol xp by which you can reconfigure you keyboard to add extra feature and options

FN keys don't work on Sony VAIO VGN-SZ18GP


The solution is as follows, which worked for me:

- Install Windows 7
- let it update all the drivers that it needs to
- Install additional Sony drivers that you need (XP drivers work just fine, but make sure to install them in Administrator mode, so, Run as Administrator), such as camera, fingerprint scanner, etc
- Install the Notebook Control Device Driver (without this the other software does nothing)
- Sony Utilities DLL
- Sony Shared Library

* restart computer *

- Sony Video Shared Library
- SUS (Setting Utility Series)

* restart computer *

- VES (VAIO Event Service)

After this one the Fn keys will start to work. The S1 and S2 keys don't work due to something to do with UAC (but I don't need them anyway)

- VAIO Control Centre (will allow you to change what the S1 and S2 keys do, even though you can't use them :) )

That's it and it worked for me.
