Thanks osholt, FZ21Z, CassieFWinTeam & thefabe for all your pre-installation assistance.
Successfully clean installed W7 Pro on VAIO CS17G & gladly the most dreaded issues were taken care. The device manager is recognizing web cam as earlier 'Sony Visual Communication Camera' (though hv'nt checked using it). The Volume, Mute, Home, End, Pg Up & Pg Dwn FN keys are working.

But ... (now comes the time for assisting on the other side)

1) The Touch Panel is'nt working.

2) The Brightness Adjustment FN Keys are also not working.

3) While going around with the drivers, faced issue with Battery Checker 4.0.0.05260 (EP0000204359.exe). As the system rebooted after installation of this, started getting error message (screenshot attached) stating;
Quote:
The installed battery may not be properly connected to the computer or may not be compatible with this computer.

Click 'OK' to enter Hibernate mode and remove and re-insert the battery.
Tried removing the battery & replacing it but no luck. For now have disabled the ISB Utility from the startup & the message is not popping up. But I feel the battery is draining a bit quickly. Using the laptop for about 30-40mins brought it down from 93% to 55%.

Pls assist.

Try using the original driver...

Unless using the Windows Key + X is a major issue, I wouldn't be too bothered about that. I managed to get mine working, but have since stopped because I didn't want Sony utilities running just to be able to use two keys, that I hardly ever use anyway.

There has been numerous reports about battery issues with Windows 7, which a google search will confirm, so I don't think there is a great deal that can be done right now about that. Did you use the Battery Checker from HERE?

Try reinstalling the program to see if that helps.

Okay, I did this for pointing - Synaptics Pointing Driver for 32 Bit (EP0000128146.exe)

From where, the link provided by you? But how do I uninstall the same in first place.
Its not showing in Control Panel/ Program & Features. Also, what exactly is the purpose of Battery Checker?

Also, right now tried sending a file to another laptop via Bluetooth, though the file got transferred but got an error message of missing driver for adapter.

They are both the same so it doesn't really matter. Try running the installer and see if it gives you any options.

Without googling it I wouldn't know, as it's not something I've bothered to use.

I take it you've installed the driver from your driver page?

Yup ... what should I do? Re-install?

BTW, thanks for Win+X, was'nt aware of the shortcut.

I've set my on/off button to shut down when it's pressed, not sure about a keyboard shortcut though.

Okay, will wait for your answer on how to uninstall Battery Checker.
What I have been using as keyboard shortcut for 'Shut Down' is; 'Win Key' then 'Right Cursor' then 'Enter'
