  1. well , 15 inches and wind is picking up, we have more on the way !
  2. Hey,stick around ,looks like the best is yet to come ...
  3. Ok try going to the intel site and running or using there update tool make sure you use the right one for 7 64 bit.
  4. So your not using a hacked copy of windows ? doesn`t matter ,but it will cause this kinda problem
  5. Hey, you might of missed when you plugged it in , not really a plug so to speak just a ribbon that slips in and then you lock it in place
  6. So ? let me go this way what might of happened is the ribbon cable is broken ,good luck seeing it.plan on getting a replacement.Had a sony the same thing happened .i didn`t see the problem ,i never could find the break, Let me know what you find ,, tw2
  7. Aftre we talked i think i answered you let me know how it turned out AKA tw2 Bruce
  8. Not sure but i think you got a set of cables with that cam ,Hook it up to your computer see if it finds it then explore the cameras hard drive ,if it is found you should be able to copy it to a folder on your computer .sony does make software for this should of came with the camera..As far as the touch screem.well you might try removing the battery and leave it sit over night then reinstall it will make it go back to default settings ,you might get the screen to respond by doing this ... and my other question would be just why are you using this for storage ? instead of downloading it and getting the videos burned for safe keeping ,i guess like some this was over looked ..
  9. OK ,so removing the cmos battery will not reset your bios password ,but!!! Ok, I said screw it. I opened the bottom of the notebook, found the backup battery and shorted the contacts. Turned the notebook on and viola the BIOS was reset. Damm it, I hate when people lie to me. The Acer Tech specifically told me you can not reset the BIOS by unplugging the backup battery (OK, I couldn't unplug the damm thing thus the short). Do this at your own risk !!! sometime this will work on most laptops .

    Skype

    I don`t think you can update. So like most places layout will go to 2.0 time for a new one once again. I know other forums are switching over so lot of them are having the old one running with the new 2.0 running inside. at least for now,have to get the bugs worked out,lots of them. Just my take on this , BTW most are not real happy with the 2.0 Check it out for yourself.. http://acapella.harmony-central.com/index.php This is just one site that started the switch over

    Mother board drivers sony

    Ok, I found the fire wall,got it set got everything working.So till they get the printer.then will have to go set it up for them.I agree on skype also.just can`t sometimes get customers to try things. there take was all there friends will have to pay to use it... one thing if i did more installs on laptops ,it might go faster for me.but for now one a year. i`ll be back with more of the unknown, Thanks guys , a lot.

    Mother board drivers sony

    Yup, you bet powersaver was the problem with the display..yes Bruce i told them about no support for kodak.. what a nightmare this is turning into for me ,got them talked into getting another printer HP for sure.. Got most of this in the bag.one thing i`m working around is Amsn is acting like it is fire walled.Gee i can`t fine one in ubuntu, plus i turned off the router, wired this one just a temp must be a bug in Amsn.. Not sure why they didn`t stick to windows ,they want it to act like it...

    Mother board drivers sony

    ok,not my stuff sorry . webcam now up and working in AMSN. still having issues with display,not sure why it does this kinda of ramdon. as it will go black ,no screen saver isn`t running.maybe ,just maybe it`s a power saver ... it is a laptop so guess i need to check as far as the kodak printers i own two and have no problems with them. but this is a customers so it`s a kodak they have, will see what i can work out. last time i put suse on a sony,i was pulling my hair out trying to get it work. ubuntu so far just little things,bugs so to speak or me doin the mess up myself sometimes i do over look. or miss the simple setting.just like the power saver, boy do i feel stupid now ... lol

    Mother board drivers sony

    Well, live was good,didn`t see any problems, But i do have some issues to work through,, Display did a setup made sure to turn off the never as far as time out, but i have no screen saver running ,while working the screen will go black,some times i can tap the mouse pad and it will come back.But most of the time i have to turn it off .then restart it. Also working through webcam problems,new logitech 5000 pro and last is a kodak printer all in one ESP-3 will see if i can find drivers and or an app to make it work. yes i did the updates and installs.Got a long way to go.For the most part running on a older laptop looks like this will work out.little slower then XP on the boot up,after i get everything working then will see if i can speed up the boot time ..

    Mother board drivers sony

    duanester Thank you ,i will give that a try tonight.and see if it works..
  17. I have a sony vaio,model PCG-GRV550 They would like to have Ubuntu Installed on it. Been two years sense i have done a linux install on a sony. last time i had problems finding drivers for the mother board, will i have the same thing again or will ubuntu put in drivers for sound ,video with no or little problems? Thank you
  18. brownhornet Thanks, for the info,like i said i`m not into games. One thing i forgot to ask, do they have age approate games or is there a usable lock on the site??? Guess i could go and check the site out and read the FAQ.
  19. Have to ask, Why would you replace the screen? when all you need is to replace the backlight. If your laptop works off a monitor,then card and driver are good. unless the screen is black ,most times it`s a backlight needed Most cost 15 to 35 dollars.just a few more steps to do after the screen is removed. Just my two cents Bruce
  20. Got a simple question, Anyone ,ever use this site? Pros/cons ? My daughter asked me about it,I don`t do much as far as gamming goes. As she was thinking of using there service for the grandkids. So ,I need some info,, Thanks Bruce PS Have a great Thanksgiving day!!!
  21. OK you have the disks,now back to your problem,ok i just grabed my sony put and i have to ask when booting into bios,did you use the first screen that showed up that list your drives? if so try entering your bios then set up the boot options. see if that helps you. what i`m understanding is you can`t get the XP disk to load on boot up.and with vista loaded it might not let you till you format the hard drive vista is newer then XP so this might be one factor your having issues with, And as i said before make sure you make a drivers disk..laptops use they own drivers .or go to sony and get them all downloaded and burned.without the right drivers the laptop will not run,you might ened up with a black display ot no sound,i think you get it.. good luck, will check back to see if you got it. Bruce
  22. well, if you got this second hand, then no you might not be able to go back to XP from Vista. But turn it off and on the boot up keep hitting the F-11 key to start the restorer,See if it give you the option to change back to XP , if not your stuck with vista home basic till you buy the XP disk, Make sure before you try to burn a drivers disk for your laptop..
