Twig’s Tech Tips

I’ve searched all over for a remedy to this but only found scraps of information occasionally. As with my Dell, I’m not a fan of manufacturers filling up the computer with their own bloated software which only decelerate the computer. Before you begin this journey with me, you should make the most of the “Sony Vaio Care” ability to upgrade your BIOS firmware.

Ensure you have your copy of Windows 7 x64. The motorists for the x86 version aren’t available from the site so good good fortune with that! You are able to customise your Windows image utilizing a combination of either RT7Lite (empty but nonetheless works) and Win Toolkit. Do not slipstream drivers in to the disc. I’m going to provide instructions on how to install them manually. For the exterior dock to work, the order of set up is important!

Now the fun/tedious part, installing drivers!

I’ve got an ATI Radeon HD 6650M with my Vaio Z so that’s being served. Sound is up next. Follow these in order and you will have working onboard sound, HDMI output as well as working noise-cancelling earphones.

Just grab and go. Update 15/10/2012: Had some issues hooking up with wireless and random dropouts. Either re-install the wireless update or install the update package without the initial just.

This can be found under “System Components”. For automatically dimming the display screen when it’s darker, allowing the backlit keyboard or swapping power profiles when electric battery levels change. For turning on/off bluetooth or cellular separately, saving unnecessary battery drain. Time to eliminate the previous few “!” marks. I can’t remember easily installed these or not, but it might be useful for you. If it is done, reboot to lock everything in again. Observe that Sony Vaio Care wasn’t installed?
