Just installed windows 7 on a Viao VGN-FZ240E with BIOS: Phoenix Technologies LTD R1120J7 07/04/2007.Does Sony update their Bios? I usually run Lenovo ThinkPad’s and the have come out with a couple of Bio updates since date of manufacture. I haven’t found them in support for this laptop.
Viao VGN-FZ240E bios question are there updates
2. Good - you can always have ways to make these comps working correctly with W7 environment by using compatible drivers
The FZ series should have no issue under W7 If you have some hiccup with functionality , just post here and we can all sort them out
qhn: thanks haven't work to much with Sony products before. Download what I could from the site for W7 but keyboard and key functions along with the media keys still don't work as original under Vista. thanks for the help.
This forum lot better than most I found for Sony.
1. to download the original "Vista" utilities and installing them under compatibility mode, or
2. look around Sony support site for some compatible models that offer utilities which might work.
Don't give up hope. I have my TZ notebook working perfectly under W7, with all the OSD tools supporting different F-keys
