Vaio stamina-Speed swtich issue :(

Q: Vaio stamina-Speed swtich issue :(

I've upgraded from Windows 7 to 8 on my Vaio VPCSB series laptop ; all my programs and settings are restored but the Stamina-Speed switch does not work. PC only can detect onboard VGA , I've deleted old ATi drivers with Driver Swpeer and Installed Windows 8 drivers but no luck so far... Any suggestions?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an ATI Mobility Radeon X1450..... I would like to create a desktop shortcut OR hotkey that will disable/enable my Standard Video Adapter instead of running the Radeon while on battery.

Is that possible? Basically i would like to switch between them via desktop.

I recently have been having pop up about "Catalyst Control Centre: Host application has stopped working", therefore after looking up google I downloaded the driver from here by choosing "Automatically Detect and Install Your Driver" <>. However, after downloading one of the features of my laptop know as speed and stamina mode has stopped working <>. I have been trying to download various files, but its seems to be not working?
I think they haven't provided graphic files for it . If anyone can find the driver or help me with this regard it be great.
I also downloaded this

A:Speed and Stamina Mode not working
Relevancy 76.54%

I currently am trying to get my Sony drivers all installed onto my computer after formatting it. Normally, I wouldn't think I'd run into an issue with simply installing drivers, but it appears to do nothing for me after installing and re-installing tons of drivers off of Sony's website. I have a Sony Vaio VPCSC41FM laptop. Just hoping to see if anyone else has run into this issue and has resolved it, as I've spent days working on this to no further extent of accomplishment.

A:Function keys and stamina/speed switch not working

Your problem may be that you have to press the "fn" key plus the function key, some manufacturers do this.  So to make the F1 work for example, you press and hold the "fn" key, and press the F1 key.
On my computer (its not a Sony), I have to go into the "bios" and change the "Action Keys Mode" to "Enabled".  This may be different on your computer.
Best of luck!
Have a great day!

Hi everyone,

Is there is a problem by having a switch then a HUB then a switch?????


A:Swtich, huh, Switch

The hub will broadcast all traffic from each port on the hub to all of the other ports on the hub. This will slow your network down quite a bit if you have a lot of computers.

As said in the title, I had just purchased my new Vaio laptop and it has internet problems. What I don't understand is why it is so slow? A friend of mine had insisted I buy this one for gaming and internet browsing, but it's just so SLOW unless i plug it directly into our modem.
This is where I had purchased it from, I'm sure the specs are there.
Any ideas on how I could speed up my internet speeds wirelessly?

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

My Vaio CR 24G came inbuilt with Vista, but since I needed to install Oracle on it, had to downgrade to XP sp2. But the vga controller seems to have an issue. When I was reinstalling the drivers it gave me an error, and now I am unable to connect my laptop to any projector, and even on connecting the S-Video, it fails to install the drivers for it.

Help required urgently



A:XP SP2 on Vaio, VGA controller issue

Welcome to TSF....

Since windows was installed the thing that has to be done is to install all of the special drivers like chipset, buss, network, audio, video and others for windows xp, they can be installed in any order you wish and can be found on the manufacturers web site for either the motherboard or the manufacturer of the computers web site. You can download these drivers and burn to a CD-R and then install those following instructions to reboot when asked. One thing if you can not find or the drivers are not made then you will have to return to vista for an operating system.

Welcome to Seven Forums entusiast!

To answer your question, you can use a retail Windows 7 DVD and install doing a full clean install using the Key from the laptop's OEM sticker. The same DVD will allow you to boot into the repair options as well.

If you can still boot into Windows you may try removing the infection first. See my sig for links to MalwareBytes Free and Super AntiSpyware. download, update and do full scans with each one.
This page points to a hardware failure with error 320 during install.

I have a Sony VAIO I'm working on. Audibly, it appears to be booting up, the appropriate lights flash, etc. However, there is no display. The LCD doesn't even flicker. I hooked up an external monitor, in the event it was simply LCD failure. However, this also shows no display. The monitor does indicate that it knows there is a computer on the other end. It seems to think the computer is putting it in sleep mode and stays amber. There is a clicking noise from the laptop, the CPU fan is spinning and the hard disk also seems to be spinning. But the 'thinking' lights go out, only the battery charging light stays lit.

Thoughts? I haven't opened it up yet, so I don't know if the graphics are on a card or onboard.

I am having a strange issue with a Sony netbook (VPCM12M1E) in that the keyboard seems to have a mind of its own, it used to be an intermittent issue but is more prevalent now. The issue is that if I try to type it enters the letters in capitals, if I press CapsLock it goes back to lower case letters. If I use the numbers, ie. 1234567890 they come out as !"Ģ$%^&*(), whatever I do with CapsLock or NumLock. If I try \,./ I get |<>? However if I boot into safe mode it all seems to work fine.
So far I have restored back to factory, reloaded the drivers for the keyboard and pulled my hair out and there isn't too much left now. Have any of you guys any words of wisdom for me

I dropped my sony vaio a couple weeks ago and the speakers stopped working, I quickly realized that the audio/usb board is broken. I believe this means my computer thinks there are always headphones plugged into my computer.

Hello everyone,

I'm new here!

I'm facing a huge issue. I've formated my notebook without do the recovery disc.
First problem: I live in Brazil,
Second problem:Sony does not delevirey the recovery disc by worldwide and Brazil Sony does not suport my laptop.
My laptop product name is: VPC-F234FX

What should I do, I have not idea how to proceed with this issue and my laptop is not the same anymore. I tried to format the notebook then download all drivers one by one on sony website and install them, but it didn't worked very well.

The only solution that I found is if somebody make a upload from the recovery disc then I make the download.
I might be wrong. Any suggestion will be apreciated.

(If I'm posting this thread at the wrong place, please let me know)



A:How do I proceed with Sony Vaio VPC-F234FX issue?

Hello Thibertk and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you format the entire hard drive or just the C: partition containing the operating system? If just the C: partition you may still have the hidden recovery partition available. Does your Vaio have an ASSIST button just above and to the right of the keyboard ? If yes, while your computer is off, press the ASSIST button to launch Vaio Care Rescue. Click Start Recovery Wizard. Select Tools and then select Start Advanced Recovery Wizard. Follow the prompts to restore to factory specs.

If you don't have an ASSIST button, start the computer and immediately start clicking the F10 key (top row of keyboard.) If the recovery partition is available you should see a screen called Edit Boot Options. Click the Enter key and select Start Recovery Wizard and follow the steps as above.

But if you don't have a recovery partition available I would forget about trying to do a recovery to factory specs. Even if you found someone with the exact same model Vaio, it's very possible that their computer has a different hard drive or a different motherboard and their recovery disks probably wouldn't work on your machine.

I would do a clean install and follow the instructions in this tutorial. There's a special note for Vaio owners at the bottom. And if you need an official Windows 7 installation disk (which contains many of the drivers your computer will need), Step # 1 has a link to an official Microsoft download site. Find the ISO of the Windows 7 version that originally came with your Vaio and download it to your desktop. Then burn it to a blank DVD. And make sure you have your 25-digit Product Key available because you will have to reactivate with Microsoft. The Product Key is either on the bottom of the Vaio or under the battery in the battery compartment.

Hi guys,

i have Sony Vaio VPCEB17FA laptop with windows 7 professional on 64bit.
the brightness of the laptop is very glaring to eyes when the laptop is charging, i tried with F/F5 and F/F6 keys to reduce or increase, but the keys are not working.
could you please provide the solution to resolve it?

i have ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 INSTALLED.

Thanks in advance




Welcome to Seven Forums vadlamudibi.

For adjusting brightness just press F5 & F6 key's without Pressing Fun key.

If it still not work right click on the battery icon in lower right and choose
Power Options A window will popup there you can see your laptops power planes
Like 'Balanced' 'Power Saver' etc(it is good to put your laptop on Balanced).
Click on Change plane settings. There You can adjust your laptops Brightness
Eather when pc is on battery or on AC. Adjust them As you like And that's it.

Edit: Hear you can Read a detailed tutorial on this: Power Plan Settings

And hear you can read many more grate tutorials on Power Management

I don't remember changing anything,only added a pic to my desktop. Now when I open a browser window (IE) things are all alittle bigger. Going to Google (my home page ), it doesn't fit completely into the browser window. All fonts on the desktop appear normal, however, the right most column of icons, has shifted away towards the middle of the screen by about an inch.
Coming here looks out of wack too. The logon boxes are more towards the middle of the page instead of more to the right like usual for me.
Any help would be appreciated.

PS. It seems that only web pages are out of whack, they don't fit anymore. The Google issue went away after I cleared internet stuff etc with ATF Cleaner. But this site's page still doesn't fit, as well as all other web pages. Spreadsheets and folders opened up on the laptop appear fine. Thanks

Hi, I just took my laptop apart to dust it, and now the toggle switch to turn on WiFi is loose and doesn't work. As a result, I am not getting an internet connection any more. This is also true if I try to establish a hardwired connection, not entirely sure why... Anyhow, I looked everywhere around where I was working and couldn't find a part on the floor or elsewhere, but I suspect that could be my issue. What would help me is if someone could provide a very closely zoomed up and clear photo of inside a similar laptop so I can see if there's a piece that I'm missing, and/or provide me with instructions on how I could just permanently solder a wire to establish a permanent ON effect. Looking forward to some pro responses, thanks in advance

kinda difficult to show you a pic if we have no idea of what laptop you have.
You might need to open it up again and check the switch is positioned properly, and also check the wifi card to see if it's seated all the way and the antenna's are connected to the card. I've seen one instance on an HP laptop the had the wrong length screw in the wrong place, it shorted something on the motherboard (the screw was too long) and when you tried to use the dvd drive, it would shut off
Open it back up and see what you missed

This is a very common problem with Windows 7 and older NIC drivers. About all you can do is keep looking for driver updates for your Vaio or try one of the older Sony NIC drivers. I tried Sony support but it says your model isn't listed?

If so, send it back.

If that partition with the image becomes corrupt you could be in trouble.

I've got a problem with my Windows 7 Sony Vaio PCV A1112m.

Following 'hibernation', which seems to be the sony word for sleep mode, the computer will no long boot up. I get as far as the 'Windows Resume Loader' but no further. Keyboard and mouse non-functional as they are both wireless, usb keyboard attempted and same thing. Can't enter bios to re-activate keyboard as I can't type F9.

Being an all-in-one, I can't seem to do anything, no form of input available to me. And I have no PS/2 slot to try old-school keyboard either.

Is there anything I can do?

I hav a brand new Sony Vaio E-Series which is 2 months old. It runs Windows 7 Home Premuim edition. I deleted the Recovery partiotion and re-partioned c: drive into 3 drives - c:, d: and e:

Everything was fine for 2 months. Suddenly today when i boot, i got the BOOTMGR is missing Error.

I put in a Windows 7 installation dvd and tried to fix the startup. But it didnt help.. When i tried to explore command prompt and system restore options.. I noticed a wierd thing..

The drive assignment has been modified. My Windows partition which was originally c: is now shown as e:. And my original e: is being shown as c:.

So, If I manage to change the drive assignments, the problem should be fixed. But how can I do it? In command prompt or using Windows recovery options?

A:Solved: Sony Vaio Keyboard issue - CAPs inverted & numbers not working

Check the laptop's keyboard to make sure it doesn't have any stuck keys as they will override any USB keyboards plugged in.

Have you tried Safe Mode or Startup Repair:
Test to see if the keyboard works in either mode. It may have switched keyboard layouts to another layout or language. If it works in the Startup Repair try System Restore. If it doesn't work re-check the internal laptop keyboard or even remove/disconnect it from the laptop and try a good USB keyboard.

Hello Erekosa, welcome to Vista forums!

Seeing that you're having issues with new RAM installed and 'handler' issues; it may be that the 'new' RAM is bad! (it happens)

The best option would be to burn Memtesr86 to a CD and test each stick individually for at least one full pass.

A:Speed issue

Does that computer come with onboard graphics? And if so did you disable it in the BIOS and or uninstall it in device manager? Was the Pro installed fresh? Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the GPU drivers? In the BIOS you'll find a setting that says Init Display First. If you switched from onboard to a graphics card that need to be changed from PCI to AGP or PCI express depending on the systems configuration. The other thing is when the graphics become jerky like that it is often either a GPU unable to handle the applications graphics (like an old card trying to play a new game), or it's a GPU heat issue, but with the heat thing you would probably be getting artifacts (patchy areas that aren't rendering properly) as well.

Another example, my friend downloaded a file from a website, the speed went at about 1.5mb/s, I then downloaded the exact same file directly after his download had finished, my average download speed was 250kb/s.

I am taking a class at my school, and they lent us these older Dell laptops that run at 1.3ghz, have 800mhz fsb, and contain 256mb ddr ram (loaded up bios on the computer to see). What I can't figure out is the fact that whenever I log on using the schools user name, the computer takes a good 30 seconds logging on, and starts out with 100% usage of the cpu, although only has 22 processes. I end around six or seven of them, although the computer speeds up, it is still slow. It could probably use a good defragmenting, though it wouldn't slow down that much, right? Also, the computers are very restricted. I know some bugs with Xp that can remove the administators password, but I won't touch these computers further than I have.

A:Speed issue

Hi cfitzarl,

I don't know if there are 1.3 GHZ CPU's with a 800MHZ FSB. I think those 800MHZ FSB CPU's are Northwood's C (A or B, donīt know ), and Prescotts.
There are 1.3GHZ P4's, with 400MHZ FSB, some P3's with 133FSB, etc.

Regarding the machine, I'd defragment it, but it would take a while. I don't think that you have time to do it.
Also, it could have viruses, and crap like that.

Anyways, 1.3 GHZ is a little slow for windows XP, so don't expect miracles, especially if they have a normal coppermine Celeron CPU.

All other computers on the network are running win 7 pro x86 and have full speed.

Any idea's?

Could be a bad network driver, configuration issue, bad cable, conflict with another device on wifi, dns, etc

Hi guys after installing some new RAM i checked CPU-Z to see if all was ok, and it doesn't seem to be.

I bought some Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz, however is doesn't seem to be running at 1866 more like 667MHZ.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 and a AMD FX-4100

Is there way i can force the speed on the RAM to 1866?

Any input is greatly appreciated.


A:Memory Speed Issue

CPU-Z reports the clock frequency of the RAM. DDR (DDR2, DDR3) transfer data twice per clock tick, so CPU-Z reports 667MHz for DDR3-1333.

Most motherboards seem to run DDR3-1333 and up at DDR3-1333 by default. To get the higher frequency, you'd either need to set the BIOS to use XMP, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

Hi all.

My friend sent me a message about his laptop. He formatted it last night because it was running very slow, but the problem continues.

What sort of things should he look at to fix his issue?

A:Issue on download speed

First what kind of internet service do you have, and what speed.
Test your internet using dsl reports, or speedtest. I prefer speedtest: - The Global Broadband Speed Test

How are you connecting to the internet, wired or wireless. Also as a side note the slow download speeds could also be on the downstream server end. The number of simultaneous downloads, they might throttle back the server to save bandwith, etc.

I'm running a DSL connection from a router to my wireless laptop. Regularly my speeds aren't quite as advertised but I still get 2-4 Mb/s generally. Lately it seems my web browsing has been sluggish and doing a speed test, this is proven.

However, bittorrent downloads go much faster than normal browsing.

Can anyone explain to me why this might be? I thought my slow speed could be due to my latency, but that doesn't explain to me why bittorrent is so much faster!

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

Any ideas?

I am using a D-Link DIR-655 router on a Windows Home Server network.

When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

The WHS box needs to be downstairs.

A:Internet Speed issue

That is not a bad speed at all. The advertized speed is the maximum, rarely achieved in real situations. The location of your internet connection is where WildBlue's servers connect you to the internet.

Not sure what to say about your video problem except that when I had a 2 mbps connection, I watched YouTube without many delays. A lower quality feed may help.

Hello everyone, I am using a linksys WRT54GS wireless router and usually works fine, but lately I noticed it's been getting slow speeds and then when I restart the router it goes back to normal and very fast for about 20-30 minutes (could vary and be longer sometimes). But then after that it goes back to it's slow speed until I restart it again.

When I bypass the router it works fine with direct connection, all my firmware is upgraded, getting 100% signal strength, it's not just my computer because when I ping from the router admin panel it gets all request timed out aswell.

Thanks for any help I can get.

Hi all

My LAN interface connects only with 100Mb/s speed with no reason though it is 1Gbit capable card (Intel 82577LC). I tried it with 3 devices (router, switch, PC directly) and a lot of cables, which are works with 1 GE speed between each other except for Toshiba laptop.

Did anybody meet this problem too? Is there any fix for it?

A:LAN 1G speed issue in Satellite R630-143

The integrated Intel 82577LC Lan card supports the 10 BASE-T / 100 BASE-TX and 1000 BASE-T network standards.

Usually you can change some LAN card options in the LAN card properties.
Go to device manager -> LAN card (Ethernet) -> click right and choose Properties.
Switch to ?Advanced? tab.

Now you should see all options which could be optimized

I recently reinstalled XP on my computer after erasing my entire HD, the problem is that it seems to be a lot slower for some things. For example, when I open a folder and drag the window across the screen, it's extremely laggy, when it used to be perfectly fine and smooth. Or when I scroll down on a webpage, it's also very slow and the frame rate, I guess, is horrible.

I suspect this might be because the Windows partition is 5GB instead of 30GB on my HD.

Also, I have a USB mass storage device and windows has made it the C:\ drive, and the internal HD is now J:\ How do I correct this?

So originally I was using a Rosewill USB HDD Dock with my WD HD103SI 1 TB Hard Drive. Everything went great, but eventually filled that up. I bought a new WD HD103SJ 1 TB Hard Drive, formatted it as NTFS, but the speeds are horrible. Transfer rates say around 2.0 mb/s give or take .5 mb/s, so it takes around an hour to transfer a 4 GB file to the hard drive, whereas it took 4 minutes on my other one. I didn't change any settings, I just plopped a new hard drive into the same HDD dock, but the speeds I am getting on that hard drive are poor. I also noticed that the file text on the hard drive is in blue? not sure why that is...

A:Internet Download Speed Issue

Hi NomadAU, welcome to Seven Forums.

I recently had similar problems with my Netgear DGN2000. It would download on my wired desktop pc at a snails pace. On my laptop, speed was excellent. When I wired my laptop to my router it would load my home page only and gave No Internet connection. If I moved the ethernet cable to any other ports on the router to my desktop pc it would give No Internet connection.
Removing all connection related settings from both pc's and resetting router to factory default did nothing to improve anything. So I bought a Netgear DGN2200v3, now normal service resumed.

I have recently chosen a new ISP and am paying for a 1Mbps connection.The problem is that i get a very low download speed of say 16Kbps only when i download using IE. Howver when i use a download manager speeds move up to 100 Kbps and the download gets completed in 1/7th of the time.

Another thing that seems related is that even if i download 6 -7 files at one time (simultaneously) each one will download at around 16 - 18 Kbps totalling to the same overall seed that i expect to get on my 1Mbps connection

Is there something i can try from my end before i blame my ISP?
