Hi there.

i would like to ask some help here. I have a Sony Vaio Laptop which is i brought it from japan, because the OS is run by Japanese so i decided to change it into English Version. After i Reinstaller my OS into English Version, all the drivers works fine, the graphic card and all i manage to settle it only the keyboard Function key is Not working.

Example: Fn+F6 (to reduce the Brightness)
Fn+F7 (to increase the Brightness)

all the Funtion key is not working anymore. Is there anyone can help me to solve the problem? i think i need to get the sony software inorder to makes the Function Key to work? Or i can use a third party software to create the Keyboard Function Key?

Btw my Sony Vaio Model is VGN-S93PSY.

Download the Sony drivers from the US site one more time. Then go to the Windows System Device Manager and delete the existing ones... then install all the new drivers. If you don't remove or disable the old drivers, then do a clean install of all the new ones, you will never get over this problem.

Hi there. I also bought the same model in Japan and I changed the OS into English. Now we have the same problem - the Fn controls are not working. The Sony USA website does not support the model since it is bought in Japan. I wonder if there is another way to solve this? Or have you figured out already on how to solve it?

Hi all - I'm in desperate need of Sony VAIO (model VGN-FJ68GP) drivers. For some reason I don't have my original sony discs with me and I'm in Canada (I am from Australia and bought the laptop there). Why is is that every Sony website except the Australian one has drivers available to download!!! And of course my model is specific to Australia.

My problem is that I took Novell networks software off my laptop and it pretty much stuffed my laptop. Well, all the stuff is there but I need the drivers to rebuild all the Sony specifc stuff like the Fn keys etc.

Anyone who can help?

you will need to link to Sony's
support site and download/install the Sony Shared Library.

You need to change your model number. This is for Sony VGN-FS640

thanks- this was helpful as the files needed are not listed on the drivers page for my VGN-S480B

the link on the page shows all supported models- there are MANY:
See all applicable models and operating systems.

Which Operating System You are Using Currently.You know In the Vaio Vista is the basic Operating System When You Switch on to Other Operating System then that means If You are Install the Xp or any Other Operating System rather then Vista Some Features are Disable So May be You are Facing the Problem Due to This.If You are Using the Vista then You have to Upgrade Your Driver for Quick Launch Button.

Try updating all drivers first. Drivers can be updated from manufacturer websites. Have you spill any liquid on the keyboard. Can an external keyboard work on the laptop.Get one from a friend or someone that has it and plug in the external keyboard into the laptop and see whether can you type anything.

Dear friend I think this problem occurred in your motherboard device. Please re-install the drivers then solve this problem.
