Have you tried this support site? Sony eSupport - Computers & Peripherals - Select Your Model
Hey kemical, i've been searching but with no results.... but, where is the site to download the drivers for the vista os?
Hi, whats your system spec?
Thanks dude for your effort, I have tried all the possible software from EU/US Sony site, Everything is working perfect except the buttons Eject, S1, S2 and Fn+ are seemed to be dead or not activated by software. This is my laptop spec: Vaio : Sony Europe : Specifications Laptop Sony VAIO VGN-AR71S: features and prices sony vaio vgn-ar71s. - ShoppyDoo my sincere thanks in advance and kind regards, Sam
LOl... No.... what type of computer do you have? Can you list the make/model?
Thankyou for the info' If you check the drivers found here: Vaio : Sony Europe Have you applied them all? or Failing that why not try contacting Sony? They have a section for it...
oops sorry, lol... the model is VGN-FW340D (this is what it says on the laptop, on the box it has an extra 'w' at the end) or u can see it here: NCIX.com - Buy Sony VGN-FW340DW Core 2 T6400 4GB 320GB 16.4IN 1600X900 GMA4500 Draft N HDMI Powder White Notebook - VGNFW340DW In Canada. thx for helping me out
Hey guys...don't mean to butt in to the discussion...i had a similar issue....on my Vaio and FN keys...i got it working....and if I remember correctly...install "Sony Shared Utilities" first and then the " Sony Notebook Utilities".......i think it might prompt u to restart inbetween......I know for a fact that the above two were the very last two drivers I installed and got it running ok.... Also if I recall correctly u need to right click on the driver and run as "Admin" in "Vista Compatibility mode" (maynot be the exact wording but something to that effect)....hope it helps....somewhat.. best regards
Drivers for 64bit vista can be found here: Sony eSupport - VGN-FW340D/W - Software Updates & Drivers
Great post! I hope this helps the users looking for solutions in this area..
i am a bit confused about that ... does the "download all sony drivers for vista"-point mean that i also install them all at once and install the Sony-programs afterwards or do i install the sony programs first and install all the drivers afterwards?
I have a VGN-FW285D running Windows 7 RC (Build 7100). I have NOT installed any of the Sony software yet, but I notice that the "extra" keys (S1 etc) do seem to work, but there is no visual feedback. On the other hand, the Fn keys in general DON'T work (exception so far is the FN2, i.e. mute). I've simply put this down to "f&^%ing SONY and ignored it.
Yes,, Sony sucks. They used to have those key drivers in the Sony Restore disk, to where if you did not install sony's restore disk, they would not install. o way to d/l them, no other way to get them. But I do think this has changed, only now, you have to install things in a particualr order and they don't tell you that order. Sony sucks period.
I reinstall my pc with Windows 7 but 32 bit version, and it works perfectly even after installation of Event, and Shared Library files.... But not with 64 bit ...... why .......what is wrong ...with Vaio ..
I guess they are not ready for 64bit os's yet?
I'm only running 32-bit Windows 7, but i couldn't get the VAIO Control Center to show the settings for the S1 and S2 buttons, as I wanted to configure S1 to launch Firefox instead of the screen brightness level. I managed to get this working by launching the VAIO Control Center as Administrative user. This was after I installed the other VAIO/Sony software as described in this thread, and the order is important too!
Finally! i have been struggling with this since i downgraded to XP, and now on windows 7.. my entire brightness control was hone.. nto even through nvidia panel or whatever.. the FN keys are still not working.. but now i can use the slider from personalization to configure my brightness.. Thanks a lot ps: working on: vgn-nr21s/s
