you are going to need keyboard drivers from Sony in order for those functions to work. Windows doesn't natively support those types of functions.

After 5 hours online with Sony support, their drivers did not work
and they wanted me to reinstall Xp. Anyone else?

Well then it looks like they don't support it and you are pretty much at the end of the road. You could always try a newer Sony Vaio notebook that comes natively with Windows 7 and see if that keyboard driver works.

The original question was "Has anyone experienced this and
found a fix?"

Not really interested in your conclusion. You give up too easily.

You think anyone else is going to answer your question after that type of response? LOL

People try to help you and that's how you respond to them. Ok since you want to act this way, then i'll be blunt. Your computer is too old for Sony to care about supporting those key functions for Windows 7.That's not giving up, that's just logic. Anyone with real computer logic, will tell you that a namebrand notebook that old wouldn't continue carry driver support for a Windows OS that's 2 generations newer then what that notebook came with by its vendor. Rather or not you are interested in my conclusion is moot, because i'm stating a fact. Don't like it? Too bad, because no one else is going to tell you any diff. Why? because i'm stating the obv. I mean, you would have thought after spending 5 hours of tech support with them that you would have realized that Sony wasn't going to support those functions with Windows 7 for that model. Heck, most people would have figured that out in 5 minutes.

Nope.

Try these via compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3 & see if that works for you. And there's no reason to take your frustrations about the issue out on folks that are simply trying to help you.

Cobra_R and Sabertooth, you guys just don't get it.

The OP is just going to stand there and stamp their tiny little foot until someone gives them the answer they want. They are part of the entitled generation.

Don't you dare try and give them a reasonable answer because their daddy has money and they almost always get what the want.

We were the unwilling, led by the unqualified, to do the unnecessary, for the ungrateful.

I guess reading THIS will give us a bigger picture of the mindset of the spoiled brats of the entitled generation. I hope these folks are not the new typical user that comes here demanding our help and/or expecting us to give them only what they want to hear.

No I get it, but i'm not going to tolerate that type of post and act like he is entitled to say that stuff and get away with it without teaching him a lesson in morality.

Cobra R--
I understand you well. It is a seemingly impossible thing to get Sony to support their products and give a XXXX about helping us keep THEIR products useful in the present. I am also angry and very frustrated with Sony. I've been fixing their products for years, and now need drivers for my VGN-AR250G laptop, for which I have recently installed Win 7 Ultimate on a new drive. No eject/volume/dimmer button functions work. I know I need mobo/hdwe drivers for all, but ofc a disc does not exist. I've been told to "try" Vista drivers--and many of them don't work. They also pushed me off on MS for a compatibility check. NO! They should be willing to do their own support programming.
I suppose you have said it best: "then i'll be blunt. Your computer is too old for Sony to care about supporting those key functions for Windows 7." If only it was a law that required a mfgr to indicate whether they were willing to provide hdwe drivers for a length of time in the future. How many ppl would benefit if they just would do it? And would I buy another Sony in the future? But this lappy is only about 3-4 yrs old--maybe a grandfather in comp terms--but
jeepers! Is it REALLY that hard to write (adjust parameters) for use with Win 7? (for Sony)
Now, can you possibly help me find what I need to restore full functionality of the comp, using Win 7? I know that if no such thing has been successfully offered as of yet, that suggestions may be all you can give. I thank you for that. I would even pay for a disc.My email>> bc I may not find your reply otherwise: Laserscottman@sbcglobal.net Thanks!
