At the moment I'm looking after a Sony VAIO VGN-SZ48GN with Windows Vista Business 32-bit preinstalled and am looking to in-place upgrade this to Windows 7 Professional 32-bit.
Currently the machine has the Toshiba Bluetooth stack installed and Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor says that for some Bluetooth components it doesn't know if there is an update for Windows 7 and for others that there is a "free" update available from the manufacturer ("Toshiba").
However I know that updates from Toshiba are free only for Toshiba laptops and Sony has no sight of a Windows 7 driver anywhere. I think based on the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor that I have version 5.0 of the Toshiba Bluetooth stack currently installed.
Does anyone have any experience upgrading these VAIO machines to Windows 7? Will Bluetooth work seamlessly after an upgrade or is there more to it?
Bluetooth is the only reason that I'm wary of upgrading to Windows 7, otherwise the upgrade advisor gives a completely clean bill of health.
every time i press fn + f8 & choose the bluetooth option it doesn't respond , & when i choose enable bluetooth from the "right click on the taskbar bluetooth" button this message pops up:[ Power could not be supplied to the internal bluetooth module, Make sure that the wirless communication Switch is set ON. ]what's the "wirless communication Switch" is , & how to switch it on?
recently i installed windows 7 in mytoshiba A80 series laptop almost all drivers which i used in Win XP OS are working here also but my USB slots are not working so please anybody give the drivers for my laptop ..
windows 7 alienware disc to install on my laptop and after installing it all my drivers are gone so i can't get on the internet wireless. i tried downloading the drivers from toshiba's website and transferring on a usb to my laptop and i couldn't get it to work. might be doing something wrong.
My laptop came with windows 7 installed. It crashed I guess because of a virus. It is all cleaned but I did not get a windows 7 disc or back it up. I cannot get online or on the computer. How do I get the installation disc?
I have come up against an issue with XP mode which loads XP SP3.The Toshiba drivers work under SP3. but the INSTALLER does not!!It will install on any XP2 machine, but not the XP3 Virtual machine withing XP Mode.How can I 'roll back' XP SP3 that Microsoft sold me with windows 7 to XP2 status - there is no UPGRADE folder or anything similar so must be an integrated build??I have loads of stuff painstaking loaded on the XPE now so dont really want to, nor am in confident in how to, do another Virtual machine with XP SP2 even if I knew where to get hold of a copy without spending more money.
