    So my discrete nvidia card will work with this guide? Like my switch is going to work?

    I have an svs13 that came with Windows 7 (different bios then the one that came with windows 8)

    hey!!

    Following this thread was one of my biggest mistake :)

    I couldn't play a single game without the cpu throttling down to 0.4ghz (like really?! nothing was working.)
    The fan speed didn't pick up and at 70, windows 10 was really... scared of the temp.

    I didn't had the bightness control using the fn key and when switching between stamina/speed, nothing actually happened.

    I redid my installation from scratch. this time, I did exactly what I did for windows 8.1


    https://esupport.sony.com/CA/p/mode...te_id=1&region_id=3&tab=download#/downloadTab

    I installed everything that I thought was useful from this page. (windows 8) ( Sony® Firmware Extension Parser Device Driver was newer on windows 8 page)
    and then updated everything from the windows 8.1 tab.

    Finally, for some random reason, my model doesn't have the file for the shared library, I had to go to the following page in order to get it
    https://esupport.sony.com/CA/p/mode...te_id=1&region_id=3&tab=download#/downloadTab

    It's strange because it's the same exact laptop but one came with 7 and the other come with 8.


    Now everything is working fine.
    All my fn key are working, my switch is working and the power plan change by itself. my fan is working too.

    Last test, let's see if it's throttling down to 0.4ghz again (I hope no)

    Edit: my laptop isn't throttling down to 0.4ghz now :D I can enjoy my game (a little since its a pretty outdated laptop)

    Hi Somnio

    Have read your above instructions with interest. I have one question though.

    You have advised:

    "Always extract. Never install. Expect you really have to."

    However, the link to the
    Sony Firmware Extension Parser 8.0.2.5 is to an EXE file.

    May I ask you please to let me know how I should extract files from this file.

    When I try to run it I am getting a message informing that this update is not for my laptop.

    Your prompt response would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Carlo.

    That was some time ago, but I believe I managed to extract the EXE files using WINRAR. You can also try renaming the EXE file as ZIP, and see if you have a program installed that can pick that up.
    If everything fails, just let me know, I can try download the file and extract the contents for you.

    Good luck!

    You could just install it in compatibility mode with administrator privileges. Right click and select 'troubleshoot compatibility' and then choose Windows 7 and additional permissions.

    Hi Smino
    Good news. Have managed to extract files from the EXE file using Universal Extractor.
    Thanks for your suggestions. They help me to find a solution that has worked.
    Regards

    Hi! I hope that you guys are still following this post here...
    I've updated to windows 10 CU following your guide BUT....
    Stamina/speed mode is not working and i can't change brightness with Fn....
    I was already with windows 10 with no problems but i decided to upgrade doing a fresh install because it was since windows 8 that i was just upgrading.....
    so, my question is:
    1) why? it is probably a problem of hotkey but really don't know why
    2) if brightness isn't a problem, i would like to know if my Gdpu Nvidia is still working even if i can't use the speed setting...HELP

    Thanks!
