    I believe that is the Sony Firmware Extension Parser. Have you installed that yet? I'll see if I have the fan control when I get home.

    BTW I just realised that rm501 has in fact 2 options missing from his vaio control centre, fan speed control as well battery care function. I only have the "devise not recognised" issue but not the above 2 issues

    I just checked, I did a clean install of 8.1 and I DO have the CPU and Fan, Battery, and Lid Open Action options in the Control Center, you seem to be missing all of those. All I can say is make sure you have the latest versions of everything. Do you have the Hotkey Utilities installed? Maybe try reinstalling the Sony Shared Library and then reinstalling the latest version of the Control Center from the 8.1 drivers section.

    Hi

    I have done a re-install of windows and installed all drivers from Sony UK and still facing exactly the same issues.

    I have indeed installed the Sony Firmware Extension Parser, as well as hotkey utilities, Sony shared library and installed the latest control centre.

    I also noticed that VAIO Update doesn't work. It fails to retrieve updates and then opens a website which yields a http 500 error.

    I did not install VAIO Care this time however as the last time it didn't solve anything and I recall somebody successfully did an 8.1 install without installing VAIO Care.
    When I get back home I will install everything I can find for the SVP and see what happens.

    Hi again

    Perhaps it's worth mentioning that mine is a custom model from UK, with no touch screen, 512 PCIe SSD, i7 CPU, Win8 Pro.

    Regards

    Hi

    1. Can you confirm which model you are using?

    2. Also do you have the link to the drivers you have used?

    3. Also, where applicable i have simply installed the latest drivers, eg, i have only installed the latest Bluetooth and Wifi drivers listed under 8.1, and NOT the original driver first. I dont think it should matter, but interested to know how you have performed the procedure.

    Many thanks

    I have 2 spare tyco internal laptop antennas I might swap into the case for better wifi reception. Has anyone who opened their pro 13 up have any thoughts on placement? Enough room @ hinges to place behind screen? Or should I stretch across battery and SSD and place under the aluminum pad somehow - wondering about optimal positioning. Haven't seen a teardown for the screen so I am not sure how tight it is.
