Windows 7: Sony Vaio fn Keys?

25 Apr 2009   #1

Sony Vaio fn Keys?

Anyone know how to get all special keys (fn, media) working on a Sony Vaio in Windows 7? Obviously Sony has no drivers for these and no, the Vista versions do not work at all. Tried already.

I'm using Windows 7 7100, 64bit.

Sony Vaio VGN-AW190 (came with Vista 64bit originally)

You may need to install the drivers in compatibility mode. Or try this:

I just helped a person with the same problem - read the posts -

Your driver page :

Notebook controls and utilites I think are the utilities he refers to - install in order of date starting at the bottom -original sony notebook utilities (10-16-2008)

Windows 7 32 bit
Got that solved

I got that solved.

Under Drivers and Softwares of SR220J,

I installed Sony Event Service from Windows 7 Ultimate 7 32 bit, which is my version, then the rest of the drivers and utilities from Windows Vista 32 bit.

I think drivers from Windows 7 is primarily made for computers that are already set to them when they were released, so if you upgraded from Vista to 7, drivers should be downloaded from the Vista version.

Hope it works on your computer too.
