    Does anyone know how to recover the VAIO Control Center that is located in the control panel? it is the utility that shows you system info and allows you to customize the s buttons and turn on/off the VAIO splash screen on bootup.

    Thanks

    It's called VAIO Notebook Setup. Download it (and other pre-requisits) from Sony Support.

    I'm sorry Skyshade, I'm just not seeing anything on that site called Notebook Setup. Strange thing is this... there is something called Sony Notebook Utilities that I can download from both the s260 and s360 sections of the support site. The s260 Notebook Util states that it includes a "notebook setup" while the Notebook Util download under the s360 does not list the notebook setup. I downloaded the one from the s260 and it does not work on the s360.

    Like I said, there are some other utilities that must be installed before you can use Notebook Setup.

    Download and install everything labeled "System Components" & "Notebook Control & Utilities" in this page:
    http://esupport.sony.com/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNS360&UpdateType=Everything

    EDIT: Make sure you install them in the right order. Read the description to determine which one goes before which one.

    That should do it.

    Still didn't work. I downloaded the following from the link you provided, 1) Sony® Notebook Utilities Notebook Control and Utilities, 2) Sony® Programmable I/O Control Device Driver Utility System Components, 3) Sony® Notebook Control Device Driver Notebook Control and Utilities and 4) Sony® Shared Library Utility System Components. I don't remember the order I initially installed these in. If I did do it in the wrong order, how do I correct it? Do I have to do another reformat?

    Just uninstall the components then reinstall them again.

    Thanks Skyshade.

    Of the files I mentioned above, what would be the correct order to install them in?

    Thanks

    4. http://esupport.sony.com/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNS360&upd_id=1817&os_id=7

    I think you need 2 to configure S keys, even though the support site didn't say so.
