Question about Sony VAIO VGN-SZ230P/B Notebook

1 Answer

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 to http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNSZ230P&SelectOS=7 and installed the drivers under notebook control and utilities but no luck. What do I do? I am also having trouble with the SD card reader. I tried downloading pictures by inserting the SD card into the computer but it doesn't recognize it either. Thanks in advance for your time and help.

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

Sony vaio vgn-nr160e with vista, function+ keys wont work


Hi,
To enable the Fn keys functionality, you need to install the "Vaio Event Service" and "Sony Utility Series"
They are available to download as part of a package from the Sony website. Here is the link:

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.

You can download latest drivers for your model here
I think you need to install Notebook Control and Utilities to get these buttons work again.

Good luck!
