Re: sony vaio fit brightness problem windows 8

I'm sorry to hear about the issue on your VAIO computer.  Have you tried running system restore back to the date when it was still working properly? It would also help if you can provide the model name of your VAIO computer. Thanks.

Re: sony vaio fit brightness problem windows 8

I'm actually having the same problem, started in the last couple of days. I've tried the keyboard shortcuts, Window's Power Control settings, Vaio Control settings, Vaio Care diagnostics, tweaking NVIDIA settings, updating/uninstalling/reinstalling both graphics drivers, updating Windows, Updating Vaio software, and more. Sick of messing with it at this point, having the screen cranked to max all the time is killer on the battery life but other than that it's not hurting anything.

Did you find a solution?  I have a Vaio Fit 15, model number: SVF15A18CXB.

Re: sony vaio fit brightness problem windows 8

@Vlampy  When was the last time it work properly? have you tried re installing Sony Notebook Utilities or the Hotkey Utilities ? Please also make sure that you have the latest driver for your Video adapter.

 

 

@TonyGlo Please provide the model name of your VAIO computer and details about the issue.

Re: sony vaio fit brightness problem windows 8

I am having this same issue with my Vaio Fit 15. My laptop's model # is SVF15A190X.

If I restart my computer, I'm able to adjust the brightness settings normally but once it's been unplugged, I lose this capability. Plugging it back in does not fix the issue.

Re: sony vaio fit brightness problem windows 8

Has anyone found a solution to this?  Is it a hardware problem?  Should I get my viao fit serviced.  The brightness control F5 and F6 buttons wont work and I often have to reboot my computer to get them working. 

 

Another problem, my touchpad is also malfunctioning.  It sometimes selects or presses on wherever the mouse is over without me touching the computer.  Never had so many problems with a Vaio computer before as I am having now.  Viao Fit 14 user here.
