    I bought the Lenovo T530. But I am so used to the FZ, I began to miss it. I still have my FZ though, use it occasionally.

    Does the brightness control work with this driver in Windows 8?

    Thanks for letting me know. AFAIK, the newer intel drivers wouldn't update the driver version for the Intel 4965 wifi card.

    Any way to disable the Sony volume control and still have the Event Service installed with Win 8 on the FZ? I wanna be able to see the volume info in windows 8 but the Sony volume overrides this. But I need the event service for FN key functionality. Hopefully it isn't all or nothing?

    The Sony brightness fn control doesn't work properly with Windows 8. So, I would advise you to get rid of the Vaio Event service.

    Updated the Nvidia driver (64-bit only) to version 314.22 WHQL.

    Nope, it doesn't work at all :(
    We can only use the built-in Windows 8 brightness control panel.

    Hi, Coolguy.

    Can you post INF file for 32-bit Nvidia drivers? (in first post we have only 64-bit version :\ )

    P.S. My card info: VEN_10DE&DEV_0426&SUBSYS_9005104D (GeForce 8400M GT).

    I'm trying to make a modification of inf file by myself with assistance of manual that you post in neighbor theme about nVidia driver modification... But now I have not working brightness control :\. When I press Fn+F4 / Fn+F5 - I can see "brightness control information" from VAIO Control center maybe, but it turns only betwen "0" and "1" segments. I'm triying to change "EnableBrightnessControl" value in registry from "2" to "1" and "0"? trying completley remove this parameter (and restart computer with each change) - it doesn't work :(

    Please help me to understand how to fix problem with Brightness control.

    P.P.S. I'm installing latest driers - 314.22 (WHQL).

    I tried instaling the latest NVIDIA Drivers (314.22 WHQL) on my VAIO FZ11Z (Windows 8, 64 bit) but it keeps failing.

    I followed the intructions, I don't know what could go wrong.
