  • Computer laptop Sony VAIO on Windows 8 may not change the brightness

    I have a Sony VAIO VPCS11X9E and my screen brightness is at the lowest setting for some reason any. In addition, my FN keys for brightness setting do not work. All the means to change the brightness do not work, this does not include the brightness bar when you go into the settings.

    I tried both installation driver, checked for any drivers missing or out-of-date drivers, but the only one who seems to be obsolete is my Intel HD graphics that I'VE updated, but the Intel driver update checker says otherwise.
    I deactivated AND activated (just in case) the Adaptive brightness, but it doesn't work.
    I got Windows 7 Ultimate running before but decided to upgrade to Windows 8. Windows 7 has never had any problems with the brightness. Also when I load upward, even thought I have replaced Windows 7 with Windows 8, it still load the dual boot screen, asking me what OS I want to start with. Starting with Windows 7 goes down several times, then it will take me to repair VAIO system. Windows 8 of course takes me to Windows 8.
    When the laptop starts up, the large letters or "VAIO" is bright and normal and sometimes, but not always, when it comes to dual boot screen, the brightness is normal. However, when this happens, as soon as I move the mouse or click on a button, the brightness goes immediately back down to very dim.
    When loading upward in another system or startup program, the brightness is fine. For example when I go to Sony VAIO Recovery Center, the brightness is ok. Also, if I boot in something like miniXP or a separate operating system on a bootable floppy or USB, the brightness is fine as well.
    I tried many patches of driver, but NONE of them work! I tried to boot in safe mode and try to install some drivers manually because that apparently works, but it makes no difference at all.
    If you could help me, even if this does not work, I would be very happy!
    Thank you very much.

    I found how to adjust the brightness on my Vaio that uses Windows 8, I went to

    VAIO Control Center
    Image quality
    Off the brightness of the display
    I hope this helps everyone with this problem.

    Original title: built in webcam 1.3

    Hi, Nancy,.

    Control Panel > add a device

    Windows will search for devices connected to your system, but not installed. Click on the name of the webcam which shows in the search box and then click "next".

    Choose whether you want Windows to search for the device driver webcam using Windows Update on the Internet, or if you prefer research of Device Manager to the driver using a disc provided by the manufacturer of your laptop. Most of the drivers are on the system recovery disk included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the disk. Check the box of your choice, then click on "next >" to continue.

    Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if that is your choice. There's an active Internet connection for Windows to do successfully. Allow the computer to install the driver and then restart the system for the webcam to be recognized by the system.

    Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disk or a driver downloaded directly from the manufacturer of your laptop to install the driver without using search Windows Update.

    Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the disc of recovery system or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in a directory of files easily accessible on your PC, or on the desktop, or in your 'My Documents' folder.

    Choose the option 'install the software automatically (recommended)' into the application 'Add a device', then press on "Next >" to start looking for your webcam driver. The Hardware Wizard will search the system recovery disk and automatically installs the driver. Press 'Finish' to close the wizard, and then restart the computer to allow the recognition of the webcam. Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to access the location of the driver where you saved the driver and install it from there. Use the open file manager and search for the driver. Click on the ' next > ' button to install the driver, and then restart the computer to add webcam functionality. -ehow.com

  • Windows Installer does not work, and niether do the Windows updates.

    OK, so I recently installed Advanced System Care for a purchase price of 12.28.  After the installation he did in fact speed up my computer but now I cannot make the updates for windows update and I access windows install.  I went through the solutions on "windows setup will not work", and nothing works.  Help, please.

    Alissa.

    Hey alissa,.

    Disable Advanced System Care and see if the update works. If this works, contact the software provider for help on how to make it work with updates.

    Note: run the computer without antivirus software or firewall is a potential threat to the computer; don't forget to activate the security software after completing the troubleshooting steps and after you have identified the problem. Kind regards

  • I am running Windows 7 and noticed that Windows updates did not work. The parameters are defined for the update every day. When I went to update manually returned an error WindowsUpdate_80070017. MSFT site was no help. Any recommendations?

    I am running Windows 7 and noticed that Windows updates did not work. The parameters are defined for the update every day. When I went to update manually returned an error WindowsUpdate_80070017.  MSFT site was no help. Any recommendations?

    Since neither updates Jan - 10 have installed, I'm going to hand you Support MS in the hope that they can resolve the problem. See below.

    That being said, is an interpretation of the 80070017 - cyclic redundancy check error "a device attached to the system does not work," which suggests that a hardware problem might be the cause of the error (although I must say that it is a very low possibility in this case).

    Good luck!

  • Update of Windows XP does not work, how do I stop the Office 07/10 updates?

    For these last months, the web version of Windows Update does not work with XP. When you click on the button for Express or custom installation, the stalls of system looking for updates. So I had to put windows to warn me of updates instead of going on the site, but now it keeps wanting to download me updates for Office 2007 and 2010, but I do not own these products (I use Office 2003).  I could not stop, even when I ticked the box does not warn me of those more. Finally I went to the site and found an option to disable Microsoft Update, which said I could always download the updates to the site, but I can't because he's trying to force me to re - download Microsoft Update.

    What is going on?  I don't like the new Microsoft Update as it keeps nagging me to download updates for the products that I have not yet owned. How can I update Windows XP only?  This is very fustrating.

    Hi Steve,.

    Follow these steps.

    Go to Start | Settings | Control Panel and double click on automatic updates. I'll explain why later.

    Then, tick the option at the bottom to turn off automatic updates, and then click apply/OK.

    Then, go to start, run, copy and paste this command and click OK: services.msc

    In the list of Services, you can see Background Intelligent Transfer Service ?

    Here's a pix what he looks like.

    If it is not listed, follow these steps to register the BITS service.

    Open the Windows search tool, copy / paste the following text, and then click Search: qmgr.dll

    Research should show this file in the following locations:

    C:\Windows\System32
    C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bits

    You might only see qmgr.dll in C:\WINDOWS\system32 depending on your configuration.

    Then, go to start, run and copy/paste: regsvr32 qmgr.dll and click OK

    Do the same with this file: regsvr32 qmgrprxy.dll

    Reboot the system and then copy / paste this command into the field run:
    %windir%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi, InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\inf\qmgr.inf

    If you are prompted to insert the Windows installation CD, ignore this and in the dialog below, replace the path C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386

    If you could only see the file in C:\WINDOWS\system32, change the path to that instead.

    Restart the PC and then go to the Services and you should be able to see BITS in the list.

    Double click on it and then on the general tab, click the Start button to start the service manually. This is just a test to make sure that it works correctly.

    If you get 2 error: cannot find the specified file, click on start, then run again and copy / paste the following command, and then click OK:
    Tracking Add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS\Parameters /v ServiceDll /t REG_EXPAND_SZ /d %windir%\System32\qmgr.dll

    Reboot again and try once more to start the PIECES. It should work fine now, but in the unlikely case where it fails again, run the following command, and then press ENTER:
    Reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore\FilesNotToBackup

    Reboot once more and then do the following.

    Go to this link and install the IE8 December Update:
    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?ID=41404

    If you use IE7, use this link instead:
    http://www.Microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?ID=41442

    Finally, go to the Windows Update site and you should be able to download normally.

    If this is the case, re - enable automatic updates in Control Panel.

    I bought a laptop with a windows xp pro, I have the serial number, but I don't have the installation disc. How can I know which version I need? SP3 has not worked... at the moment I am testing SP1

    The serial number of the computer has nothing to do with the product key for Windows.

    What happened when you tried to install Xp with sp3? If you do not have the original for the computer that you use to install Windows?

    You can try to contact the manufacturer of the computer who may be able to provide the recovery disc. The disks are usually under $ 20.
