Question about Sony VAIO Notebook

1 Answer

Dear, I have a couple of problems with my vaio... I think that all problems are about drivers (orginally installed Vista, I have now Windows 7 64 bits installed). My Vaio model is VGN-AR71S. Keyboard don't work, camera doesn't work. Could you please give me an advice? Thank you in advance

Hi..
I would 1`st google to see if your laptop is compatible with windows 7..i,e forums etc..to see if you find any body else has any of these problems..

Try looking on the sony web site to see if they have any updates....or google your make and maodel but after you have put in you model,write in windows 7 drivers....and if you find any drivers you can use a usb external keyboard to install them..

If all else fails you might have to go back to your original operating system or try windows 7 32 bit..

Dear expert, salute, I got my Sony Vaio laptop today and got a lot of problems. It is VGN-FZ220U Model and it's been used by my brother for a couple of years already. It had Windows Vista Ultimate...


You can download Vista Drivers from sony's website and right click on the setup file go to properties and then select run this program under compability mode. this may help you on your driver issues also make sure that you install the drivers for the correct OS you have installed (32bit or 64bit) On the Webcam issue you have to play around with a couple of drivers since this were not written for win7.

Hope this helps!

Instaling windows 7 in vaio laptop have vista orginal windows how solving the problem in instaling windows 7?


if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,

but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^

I'd suggest ring back Sony support and tell them that your OS is Windows 7 - not Vista. Therefore, you need the upgraded VGA driver because the Vista driver is incompatible with Windows 7. Hope it all goes well. If my suggestion works for you, please do rate me. Thanks

VAIO VGN-AR630E Drivers for Vista Ultimate


Vista Home premium drivers will work perfectly with Windows Vista Ultimate. When installing Vaio event service and Vaio Control center make sure that you run setup file as administrator. Right-click the setup file and select option "run as administrator". By reinstalling utilities this way they will work perfectly well

I'm assuming the computer comes with Vista installed in which case you would need Windows Vista Ultimate, the most premium version of Vista, in order to completely install the Russian language.

Windows XP drivers for Sony VAIO Laptop


There is no easy answer for this type of question, unfortunately. The best I can do is offer some advice. While installing XP is always possible, and most of the time preferred by the user, not all of the hardware will work every time with every computer. That's just a disclaimer. I think this thread may be useful to you: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=128804
