just started using this laptop last night and now when watching a video it sputtered and turned white got a brief message saying some Video driver has been recovered
I've upgraded my vaio z47gd to 64 bit win7. However my nvidia graphic driver messed up. It seems like screen divided to two sections with bad refresh rate. Anyone else having this problem?. Also can anyone point me to the right place to download win7 64 bit drivers. I can't see them on the sony site.
I just noticed that there is no win 7 video drivers available for all those models except the new vaio z890 ones
I want to remove some of the outer casing on my AR series Vaio to replace it with a new part, is their anywhere that i can download a service manual for an AR series vaio that shows me how to take one apart so that i can replace the plastic fascia ?
I recently installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit edition on my Vaio FW490 (upgraded from Vista 64). I received the free upgrade disks from Sony. When I checked my device manager I noticed that the driver version for the WiFi Link 5100 is 22.214.171.124 dated 5/28/09. On the Sony Site, they list the version for Windows 7 as 126.96.36.199 dated 10/8/2009, and when I checked on the Intel site, they are recommending driver version 188.8.131.52 dated 10/21/09.
I'm trying to get the latest video driver from Intel, but I couldn't install it. It gives me a message saying something like the product compatibility is not verified for my system. How do I get the latest driver for my gm965 chipset?
I had Vista on my notebook and downgraded it to Xp. And now I can't download any of the Video Controller VGA Compatible driver that is on the internet. I tried many download links and none of them wanted to complete the installation. It always says can't install. And now I tried to uninstall this driver and install it back again but it's gone and I don't find it anymore on the device manager.
I clean installed the Windows 7. However, I am unable to install the Intel chipset driver. I try to install the one download from the Sony website and the one download from Intel website, but there is a error message come up to say I have a imcompatible machine (something like that). Because I can't install the newer Intel chipset driver, the SM Bus Controller is not installed properly too. It has a ! mark besides it.
Windows Update showed a new update to the graphics driver for the 965 which applies to my SZ and whatever other model uses the 965. It seems to have fixed the "glitchy" aero border.
I periodically check Dell's site for updated video drivers but they are always sooo old. (Dell's driver-Version 7. something, Intel's-Version 11.something) Intel's site is much more up to date. Anyway, I'll download the Intel drivers and attempt to run the installer. It'll extract all the files but then close and show a message stating that the driver isn't "validated" to run on this computer and that I must get driver updates from my pc maker. Why are others able to install the drivers, even on other Dell systems? Is it a business notebook thing due to the need for stable system images?
If there a way to install official Intel video drivers on an HP DV5-1000us? A friends friend has one and I tried extracting the files from the .exe then updating the drivers thru the device manager but it won't take the drivers prob due to a hardware id # hp had changed to prevent people from installing all but thier own "optimized" ( my ) drivers. And this DV5 is the one with the GMA X4500 video adapter in case anyones wondering.
Was having an issue on bios A12 (I think it was) with the brightness (function keys were not adjusting it properly), so updated the bios to A15 and the latest intel drivers as advised. (have intel, not nvidia). Now the screen on boot is either blank or with only blue lines. Can hear it booting into windows so the system on the whole seems fine. Have got it working successfully on an external monitor via the vga port. I have tried to reapply the A15 bios and reinstall the intel drivers but not changed anything. The display properties in windows shows the laptop monitor as stuck on 640x480 and low colours. screen is off on 640x480 and if upped to the only other option 800x600 gives blue lines.
I have an M1530 that has the 8600M video adapter in it. Currently I am using the Dell 176.44 driver and I am wondering if that is best. I notice from time to time that my desktop display gets very slow where the window tracking is not smooth like normal. I don't play games on this laptop, as it is purely for business use, but I do use programs like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, GIMP.. and other design applications.
I've been out of the loop for few years, as in, not paying much attention to my i9100 (w/ATI 9800...unmodded). Now I've totally dumped and reloaded it with XP pro and I am using whatever MS uses for a v-driver when there is nothing else. Everything else has been updated with the latest from the Dell site, and XP Pro too. I use this rig for light to medium duty gaming, and soon, I hope, watching net TV on it....and then all the other standard computery things that don't really need anything fancy for a video driver ....
My Vostro 1510 laptop came with the latest 8400GS video card driver from Dell. Is it unwise to try the latest driver from nVidias site? I've been reading that some drivers can run a little cooler. HWMonitor says my GPU normally runs at 60c, a little warm from what I'm reading.
I'm looking for help finishing up reformatting my Dell Inspiron E1705. As far as I can tell, everything up back to normal after the the reformat and reinstall of XP. Finally got all my drivers figured out and everything seems to be working except...
I can NOT send pictures through SMS on an X10a Unbranded phone, but if I use a X10a Rogers unlocked it works, I'm on AT&T, both phones have the same APNs and all the settings I can check, any suggestions?
I am using the following code but there appears to be warning with fseek and returns -1 instead of 0. $file = fopen("http://www.example.com/public_html/data/video/temp.mov", "r") or exit("unable to open file"); fseek($file, -128, SEEK_END); The file gets opened definately but fseek doesn't work. Is there some other method to read video from server? Following is the error message Warning: filesize() [function.filesize]: stat failed for Warning: fseek() [function.fseek]: stream does not support seeking in
Also, is it possible to share an iTunes library between my MBA and my PC so I can sync my iPad and iPhone without having to create a new library? The library file is currently on the NAS and just wanted to use the same one. Would it allow me to sync my iPhone with the PC and the iPad with the MBA using the same library on the NAS? I know this is more of an iTunes question, but figured I would post it here instead of starting another thread.
Ok, so I honestly know nothing about android contacts and google accounts or any of that.. But right now I have a Pre. Does my memory serve me correctly that I can transfer all my contacts from my Pre to my Evo online at sprint.com?
I have done some searching around, and from what it looks like so far, there is no native way to parse JSON in Actionscript/Flex. XML is automagiaclly parsed and life is good. Why isn't JSON parsed this same way?

Is there a quick way to link my Facebook contacts to their matching phone book contact, Or am I forced to do it one by one. My Moto Backflip automatically linked FB to PB, so I'm wondering if it has something to do with Timescape. I'm at a loss, as I work in the industry and cannot figure this out. Any help would be appreciated
How can i link up facebook, timescape so that it updates/adds photos to my contacts in phonebook via facebook like you can on the htc hd2?

I have Sony Vaio VGN-NR385E that I've formatted yesterday, and now I want to install "SonicStage Mastering Studio" which I don't have now! I tried to contact the support they told me something about the Recovery Discs!! which also I don't have! to get the download link? or to do for me a favour to upload the .exe file from your Recovery Disc and share the link here? I have Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Home Premium
I am upgrading my Sr490 to windows 7. I was wondering what software I have to download and what drivers. I am also looking for the one click check up and vaiocare stuff that came with the sr490 originally. how loud people think their SR is.
I have the Sony Vaio VGN-FZ21Z with Vista Home Premium. Recently whenever i try to download files from the internet it brings up a box saying do you want to open, save or cancel. I have tried both open and save, it does sometimes ask me if i want to run it and i press run. It then act as though its tryng to download the file, it then goes off once downloaded and never does anything else. Its sending me nuts as i have tried everything. I tried a system restore as i thought id done something i shouldnt have, ive tried deleting all temporary files and ive just got to the point now where i have ran out.
PHP: How to write code in PHP to play video files (not flash) but completely turn off the video download
I have updated my phone because I had gotten some new contacts through facebook, and I would not ..Therefore, I also update the phone again to reset it all ..Now I can not get the contacts in the phone book, though I had backed up everything. And last time I updated my phone, there were no problems getting the contacts out again!?When I send an sms I can easily find my contacts, search for a name!Can not figure out how to have them in my phone again ..So I have the latest update on my Sony Ericsson x10 mini and finally I got the latest on there was no problem with getting the contacts in the phonebook!
I have just received an update with the latest firmware for the Mini Pro. My RoadSync still does not sync my Outlook contacts to the phone. Mail and Calendar works just fine but when I try to reach my contacts I am just presented with the blue menu, asking me to add users manually or to sync with Google etc. There are no more settings to set in the RoadSync application more than to checkmark the contacts - then they should "automatically" show up in the Android contact list, which does not happen. This is really a very big issue, making the phone almost unusable.
On my old K850 I could connect it to my net book through USB and use it as a 3G modem. Any way to do this with the X10?
I am using Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro with 1.6 firmware very recently purchased, As i dont have the android market icon, i just done Factory Reset to my handset and after that i noticed that my contacts in the phone book gets errased whenever i switch off my mobile and again switch on my phone book contacts are completely erased..... again i need to restore it from Back up and Restore application which is present defaultly. So everytime I am Restoring my contacts and again it gets refreshed. I even reinstalled my OS android 1.6 (as 2.1 notification i didn't get) even after reinstalling i am facing the same problem no contacts on my phone book. Is there any solutions for this ..........? you all guys knows very well that if there is a problem with phone book (contacts) how hectic it is......... no use of using mobiles then......... i am missing the important contacts everytime. so everytime i am doing back up and doing restoring........ I dont use any synchornized apps.... i use the "Back up & Restore" application which came along with my mobile and I haven't installed any new apps till now.... Note: Actually before doing Factory Reset the phone book worked fine no refreshments of contacts happened.
I have set up my sky.com email address as the default email within the function of the phone. All working fine other than I don't seem to be able to import my address book into the phone email function.
Does anybody know how to sync facebook pics with contacts, even though your contacts have nicknames? I have tried the facebook app "sony ericsson contacts" and it doesnt work. Tried to merge contacts manually on the phone but then my contacts shows their facebooknames and not their nicknames.
I hav more than 1200 frnds in facebook and the contacts is taking up more than 21MB of space in my phone memory. I just want to sync my google contacts. As soon as I log in facebook in timescape, the contacts start downloading from facebook. Is there any way that i can unsync my facebook and twitter in my contacts so tat i hav only my google contacts in my phone? Xperia X10 mini pro. Android Eclair (2.1)
My x Peria doesn't pop up face book notifications ? i have it with time scape and face book for android? Also how do u update emails as that updates face book?
The address books seems to be sorted on first name as a default. Where do I change it?
is there a way to get a contacts picture to show their facebook picture in timescape. I have linked all my contacts with their facebook accounts but it still shows the default white picture. I dont want to have to go through and take pictures of all my contacts. that would just be silly.Apologies if this has been asked before or is a simple fix. I'm new to this smart phone malarchy
How do you post a standing photo on facebook from x10mini? my photos keeps being posted laying down which is a bit annoying.
I got my new Xperia X10 yesterday, and when i went into the phone book for the first time to copy contacts from Sim i made the mistake of coming out of the setup wizard, and now i cant see how to copy from sim. Someone please help, i have no contacts on my phone!
I put all my contacts on my phone from my sim card, great no problems, then opened a gmail acount which was usefull for editing and adding email addresses to the contacts. But I now have a problem where, if I add a new contact to my phone, say a name and mobile number, it will soon disapear when the phone synchronises with gmail. The only way I have found to add new contacts on the phone is to put them in gmail first on my lap top. I know It is possible the stop synchronisning but surely gmail shouldnt take contacts off my phone?
I would like to transfer my contacts from my Nokia E71 to my Experia X10. Can someone out there explain how i go about doing this?
I was using my PC Companion software today to sync up my music and noted the Syncing link. When I started it, it brought me to a Sony website where I can store and sync contact's, calendar and a bunch of things. So it looked pretty interesting and it is free, part of the X10 package, or is it? Well it appears AT&T has stripped that option out of our phones as there is No SE Sync option in the sync section of our settings. Even if we follow the directions to do it, still no joy.
Address Book Issue: Suddenly after having it worked smooth for 3-4 days, I started getting a very strange problem which I was not able to search anywhere in forums or in the help manual.My address book search is not searching any contacts by the contact's names. It is just searching the emails, it's a huge problem for me especially when trying to send SMS to anyone, I can't go and add recipient by searching, I need to scroll the whole way down to that contact, which is irritating. Otherwise the phone is quite nice and I am liking it very much. Especially the slide out keyboard is really usable plus unlike most smartphones, it's really small in size and performs most functions. There are some minor flaws but most of them are going to get fixed with the SE's much awaited software update for bringing in the Android 2.1, no doubt I am also waiting desperately.
I am unable to synchronize the contacts with my phone. Whatever I add in the phone, it is synchronized with Gmail and I could see the new contact in the Gmail contacts. However, whatever additions I do in the Gmail, such as adding new contacts etc, are not reflecting in my phone.
From my late c702 I have a contacts backup (.dbk file) that I'd like to import to my Xperia mini. How do i do that?Alternatively, I have a csv file that I could import. Can PC Companion do that? Editing contacts in Google contacts isn't too user friendly.
Everytime i click for notifications, an error message appears. "Cannot retrieve the notifications. Please try again later [601/Parser error:unexpected '-' at position 64.]"
I was wondering if the X10 can do the same as my last android Hero, which basically link the facebook info contact to my related phone contact, including the picture. I guess this wont need any hardware, but software. Has this improvement being asked or is it planned for future updates?
Is anyone else having an issue with facebook within timescape? When it tries to sync for updates with facebook an error pops up in the notification bar and says "could not update from facebook server unavailable" The interesting thing is it actually does still update the timescape and can still post updates to FB Tried a factory reset of my phone and the issue is still there
I have noticed a probable gltich in the timescape, excuse me if I had mistaken. I see that all my accounts(face book,Twitter, SMS) are updated correctly but I don't find the call log and my email view of timescape correctly updated. Please help out to get this corrected. PS I am using the 1.6 version of Android.
Timescape has auto updating, but it only updates when you manually go in and update it and even then you have to come out of it and go back in before it updates. I remember with the old builds you can set how often it should update, and how often it should check for new mails, can't seem to find those settings any more.
I have hundreds of friends on facebook so when I got this phone, i was expecting tonnes of updates on Timescape. All I'm getting are small notification such as someone uploading one picture to their profile. I don't see any status updates at all.
I have a peculiar problem with updates for Facebook in Timescape.If I enter Facebook directly all updates are shown fine. However, there have been no updates to facebook posts in Timescape for 2 days - setting is set to update per hour. If I click through one of the old posts in timescape it shows me a Facebook login screen - but whenever I type in my Facebook login it flicks back the emailaddress/phone number to show my phone number rather than my username!?
I've just got an X10 and although I'm sure it worked originally if I now click on a Facebook tile in Timescape it no longer loads facebook - the browser window appears but I just get no title in the progress bar thing and it goes a little bit across and then stays there forever.
I have had the phone a few days now and I cannot connect to facebook thru Timescape.The Facebook application on the phone though works fine, just have issues when trying to connect do it via Timescape. If i click on a FB notification and i want to open it, it prompts me to the login screen. I confirm login with the correct details and then it just hangs there on the login. You can see the toolbar up the top go to the correct address and the progress bar goes in green and fills up but it doesnt proceed to the next page, it just hangs on the login screen. I have checked my APN settings and I have 2 of them set up by default on the phone. I am with Vodafone in Aus and I checked their APN settings on a android site and there is only one for Internet and MMS. Should I delete one of them?
Is there any way to get timescape to open the facebook app instead of the web browser when a facebook "leaf" is touched. I have it set that Twidroid will open for twitter "leaves" but I can't figure out how to get it to use the Facebook app.
My Timescape worked fine, but 13 days ago doesn't sync with the Facebook. I get a message: "Could not connect to the internet!" I tried with 3G and WIFI connection too. Everything works fine (for example the Twitter in Timescape or browser so the internet connection is available), only the Facebook refresh doesn't work. I tryed clear the timescape settings, and reconfig the timescape, tryed remove the Facebook account and re set, but the problem is the same. 4 days ago, I updated the phone software for the newest (R2BA026 1.1.31). I made a factory reset and made a repair with the PC Companion. I tryed remove the sony ericsson app, from my Facebook account. Still I have the problem, I can't fix it I didn't change anything, when the problem starts.
After updating my phone to version 1.1.A.0.13, i came up with 2 issues: 1) The facebook refresh button, along with the facebook option were gone from timescape app!. I mean that in options, only twitter would appear for account adding!. Yet my older facebook feeds still appear, but as i said no refresh button is available now, so that i could get new ones! 2) Almost none call metering app works anymore! I used to use Call meter NG, but after updating it says that some error happened and it turns up with questionmarks instead of numbers were the call & sms counters were. And no other relative apps seems to work also.
Timescape used to work fine but now everytime I try to update facebook it with "Could not update from Facebook - could not connect to the internet." I've seen discussed on other forums about the notification displaying even thouh the update was successful - in ny case it actually does fail. My phone's internet settings are unlikely to be the problem as i have had no difficulty watching HD streaming video connecting through Optus Australia 3G. I've tried signing out of the facebook ap and also signing out from facebook in the browser just in case facbook was denying the connection - this did not fix it. I've tried deleting the timescape facebook service account and adding it again - didn't fix. I have also gone into Manage Applicatons and hit 'Clear data' for timescape - also didn't fix.
I am not able to sign in to facebook on timescape ,I am already signed into my facebook on my xperia but when i try to add my account on timescape it gives me a message " Authentication failed..
Timescape is not updating facebook.I chat with an SE member and i was told to clear cache and data.I set up the timescape again but now it only shows an update from one person 2 days old.What is going on?
Don't get me wrong : I don't like that app and i never had the intend of using it. But i do like the widget on the homescreen, were it shows the SE logo (when it's not setup). Unfortunatly my phone activated the app while in my pocket and the SE logo dissapeared . Is there anyway just to reset it? make it show the Logo again ?
I swear there was a way to completely disable or remove timescape in 1.6. How do you do it in 2.1?
Just got my Xperia X10 & I've already done that! Anyone got any idea why it wont like go away? Its connected up to the internet, facebooks set up etc contacts are all there
It has been weeks since my xperia x10 timescape does not work with my twitter, i cannot get any update from twitter and cannot link my twitter account to my xperia x10.
im having an issue with timescape on my homescreen does not update with timescape it can leave an update saying 4minutes ago on my screen but the update be several hours old
My Timescape widget is not updating and still shows an SMS I received almost a week ago as the most recent message with caption "2 hours ago". I have changed my facebook updates to "Update automatically = never" and not included in the main spline, but have SMS and emails regularly appearing which is what I want to see in the widget. Anyone else got similar issue, or even better anyone 'had' similar issue and found a fix they'd like to share? At the moment it's a big waste of screen space.
So I always used timescap to update my twitter. But now, when I try to post a new message, it just says: "can't update twitter". The weird thing is, it does update twitter and I can receiver updates from people I follow. This means that the account and twitter is working, but I just can't update my own status. Then I just Seesmic, to see if it's a problem with my account. But that just works fine. The main difference between timescape working and then not, is that I was on holiday in America. There, it worked fine. Then I got back in the Netherlands and all of the sudden I can't update my status anymore. While in America, my X10 updated the time wherever I went. Back home, it didn't update the time automatically, so I did it manually. That's the only thing I can think of that changed. Does anyone know anything I can do? (besides restoring the phone). I don't know if i'm the only one with this problem, if not, there must be some sort of solution for it.
How do I get rid of the timescape logo on the homescreen and then just to show the wallpaper.
On Android 1.6 I was using Timescape as my home screen. Now after installing the 2.1 update I can't set Timescape as my home screen.
Im trying to take the timescape logo off my home screen (as its right in the centre and i dont use timescape) i know its possible as the guy in this link hasnt got it on his home screen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPyU4eUKCEI go to 2 mins 39 and ull see his home screen without the timescape logo thing
I love the timescape on my X10. It helps me keep track of a lot of things but, I feel that showing only missed calls in the Timescape is a drawback for it. It would be great if SE can show the entire call log and simple options like callback/message back in Timescape. So, reply here if you like this feature to be added and hope that SE hears us.
I have my phone set to have Timescape as my home screen. Before I switched, I could make new application folders in the settings menu. Having Timescapes as the mohe screen, that's no longer an option. Does any one now how to create application folders when Timescape is your home screen?
I just got my white X10 a couple of days ago and I'm loving it! Well, asides for one relatively minor issue which is the appearance of Timescape on the home screen. I really liked the transparent look Timescape had with the SE logo prior to setting up facebook and email, etc. Now there's usually someone's FB display picture or an email being displayed, which is nice and all but I don't really like having to it all the time. I'd much rather see it when I want to by just tapping the tile and entering timescape as I'm a fan of the clean look it had before the setup. I was wondering if there was a way to change the timescape widget's appearance to what it was before I set it up without losing its functions. In other words I want it to work the way it is now but have it look the way it did on the home screen before I set it up. To illustrate what I mean, I would like to change timescape widget from looking like this: http://www.mobilephonehaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/sony-ericsson-xperia-x10.jpg to looking like this: http://nexus404.com/Blog/wp-content/uploads2/2010/01/Sony-Ericsson-XPERIA-X10-Japan.jpg without losing the functionality of timescape. New to the whole android thing.
Has anyone experienced Timescape emails not syncing? My facebook and twitter feeds update properly, but the emails don't update unless I reboot. The emails will initially update after reboot, but won't update again until the next reboot. I've gone into "Email" and set my "Email check frequency" to every 5 minutes, but this does not seem to have any effect on Timescape.
I just got my xperia yesterday but for some reason i cant seem to send text messages when i put my sim in the new phone. i can receive them, make and receive calls and get on the internet no problem. i have also tried resetting the factory settings twice!
everytime I go to send an sms thats 3 pages long it will send then I get a notification saying unable to send Nd the receiver only gets half the message ! this is really winding me up it happens everytime its 3 or more pages long !
I have been having a problem recently with my phone sending text messages to random nonsensical numbers. i.e. I get a message failure because the phone tried to text "0110000100000" which is obviously not a phone number. I had installed handcent almost immeadiatly upon getting the phone. So I tried uninstalling it and putting on chomp. Still have the same problem. It seems to help if I use my task killer after using the sms app. I am running the original firmware that came on the phone from Rogers, as everytime I use pc companion, it tells me i am up to date, and the update service locks up my computer (and my laptop and my wife's netbook). I would rather not do a factory reset, but I am getting pretty close.
I recently bought a X10 mini/pro. Today I took a look at my latest invoice from the phone company. I was billed for sending a text message to a swedish phone number...........Searching the internet I found out that many people experience that their Sony Ericsson phones, by themselves, send text messages to a phone number belonging to Sony Ericsson, Sweden.
Please can someone help me, I have just bought the X10 phone, it was original on voda phone network but has been unlocked so I can put my virgin Sim card in, when I try to send a picture message I get a message saying 'unable to send, message will be sent when service becomes available'. Does anyone know what I need to do.
My question is as above, since upgrading to 2.1 i can no longer send or receive MMS messages.
cannot send text messages on virgin network can call go on internet but cannot send a text but can send a mms so i dont understand someone put me out of my misery sms centre it says not set but will not store the number given by virgin
I've upgraded my software and have no problems with my phone, but now when I send a text message a tick appears in the dialog box. When I first got my phone I was being charged for text notification from orange so I'm just wondering if this tick has something to do with that? If so, how do I turn them off?
Does anyone know how one can forward sms messages that are sent to me to my contacts?
yesterday i have bought a new X10 mini. can anyone tell me how to send or receive contacts using blue tooth or sms? Can I receive a vCArd and store as a contact? I do not see the option of sending the contacts from my X10 mini either as a sms or via Bluetooth? can anyone guide me? - shankar
I am thinking of getting a Xperia X10 mini/pro handset to replace my nokia phone. With my Nokia I could do things like add and remove contacts through the pc (Running windows xp) and also view edit and delete SMS messages through the PC what I was wondering is what is the software (free) that I would need to download for the Xperia X10 mini/pro ? only I couldnt find it on the SE website.
xperia mini can't send messages to multiple recipients what gives?
Does anyone know if it is possible to set default numbers in my phone for text messages and phone calls for individual contacts, please? I would like to set up the phone so it defaults to mobile phone numbers for text messages, so I don't accidentally try to send a text message to a landline.I have fiddled weith the phone for ages, but haven't yet found the option to do this.
When i try to install all those things i am getting error...i am following the things given in below link but i am not to excute this svn command [url]
