    The semi clean install will not correct the device manager seeing a T7500 instead of a T7700. But to be honest with you I am pretty sure there is really no issue with this at all in the first place I think it is merely cosmetic. There appears to be no difference in the drivers between the two different speeds of processor. That's why Sony uses the same image for all the different speeds.

    I think the Created Recovery Discs option in Vaio Recovery/Launcher.exe no longer works after using this method. It crashes for me, can anyone else confirm this?

    At what point does it crash for you? I'm able to get to the "insert disk" stage, but I'd rather not waste a DVD. Does it allow you to start burning?

    I have the SZ 691 n/x. I believe it had around 90 to begin with if not mistaken lol.

    Well, that list you provided only had 35. I'm confused.

    I don't have it in the Start Menu. You can always make a shortcut there if you want. I figured it's better when it's hidden because of the ability it has to reformat my hard drive.

    Anyone can help me?

    Just figured I'd go ahead and post my specs before and after doing this. Keep in mind that I did this after I have already spent the last two days deleting all the crap that I could using CCleaner and Add or remove programs.

    Before:
    HD Space: 130 GB Free
    Processes: 66-70
    Memory Usage: @40%

    After:
    HD Space: 162 GB Free
    Processes: 54-58
    Memory Usage: @28-30%

    Not bad at all, for something that only took me an hour. I definitely recommend this procedure for anyone with a new notebook. As I said before, I did this AFTER I went through and deleted all the bloatware I could possibly find and killed some startup tasks. The results speak for themselves.
