    So, I was forced to format and re-install windows 7 during the weekend. So, I decided to do a 64bit install. It all went well, and I thought I installed the Vaio drivers and software correctly, but I still am not able to adjust brightness, via the hardware keys. Nor am I able to adjust battery care functions. Any ideas?

    @rachel
    Did you do CPU upgrade in your vaio? If yes- did you do reballing?

    I asked because I've found your post where you wrote that vaiorefurbs did reballing for you.

    Today I bought Vaio TT with 1,4ghz core 2 duo, but maybe I will buy another one with 1,6ghz

    Vaio TT is still my favourite netbook. New Macbook Air gets much better screen, touchpad, keyboard (and it's backlit), CPU and GPU, but still there is no card reader, modem or docking station port (and offcourse optical drive).

    Sad thing is that Vaio TT blu-ray don't read DVD-DL, I use them a lot, so probably I won't do Blu-ray upgrade.

    Yes, vaiorefurbs has done reballing for me but this was for a older gen U7XX laptop. When i tried to see if he could if he could do reballing for this gen cpu for another ulv laptop he said that he didn't have the tools needed. He said he could do it if i bought a new cpu and they could do it that way. This was a while ago and he might have obtained the tools needed by now. May be email them if you're interested.

    Anyone using Windows 8 Consumers Preview? I am interested since I an still using Vista Business.
    I just downloaded it and installed it on my TT. Took more than 2 hrs to download, and maybe another hour to install (these timings are approximate as I did not really time it). A few things does not work:

    The mouse pad works but cannot scroll. Tries to installed an ALPs driver which is what I use on Vista.

    Vaio Functions keys do not work.

    Finger print scanner does not work, but I do not use it.

    Anyone testing windows 8 has any solutions?

    Hello Everyone,

    I am an owner of a Sony Vaio TT46GG. Just recently I dropped my laptop and the corner of of the keyboard panel chipped off .... does anyone know where i can find replacement parts where I can replace the upper keyboard panel ? or is it not worth fixing?

    also this question has been probably answer countless time but i was wondering if anyone can tell me what is the best SSD for battery life i can upgrade to? also when i swap the HDD for SSD ... is there an adapter i need to buy or is it a direct swap?
    I've been looking at this SSD

    May be ebay for cheaper parts or sparepartswarehouse or servicesales.sel.sony.com

    The Samsung MZUPA2560/0D1 i believe is a G3 Samsung drive. It is a balanced performer and should have low power consumption. No, you do not need to buy another adapter for the model that you own to do this upgrade.
    This thread might be worth a look as well, the front page lists different micro sata drives available.
    mSATA & 1.8" SATA SSDs available

    Agree with Rachel, but the SSD-list is somehow arbitrary. I know from own experience that Intel-drives really do not use much power, both under working conditions and in standby mode, but OCZ really is an energy consuming device. So I do not trust all these yes's in the table.
