VAIO PCG-SR19GT Touchpad Not Detected



  • 1. Sony PCG K25 Vaio _SUCKS_
    Hi Folks, I just bought a brand new Sony PCG K25, 15.4". It has the following problems that are design related, not just defaults in my unit: 1- Battery charged 100%, run the CD player with AUDIO, not DVD. It ran out of battery in 27 minutes. I drained the battery hoping it would improve, and repeated the test: 27 minutes again. 2- The battery cover takes 4ever to close. Took me a good 15 minutes go close the battery cover. 3- The AC/DC converter is GIANT and super heavy. It weighs like an entire 15" typical laptop. 4- The laptop itself is too thick , and super heavy. So carrying it around with its battery+converter is a considerable load. Don't count on taking it on your next trip unless u r planning on not doing any workout ;) Do NOT buy this piece of garbage. Thanks, J.

  • 3. 3com wireless card woes
    I bought a 3com 802.11g X-jack pcmcia card off ebay, and immediately I installed it (using the newest driver off 3com's site) I got crazy CPU spiking which would lock up my notebook every few seconds or so. Disable the card, problem goes away. I checked in Device Manager when it's installed, says everything's fine, no conflicts. Any ideas?

    Hi, Was anybody able to successfully install and operate Windows 2000 Professional on a Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 notebook? (which usually comes with XP Home Edition).

VAIO PCG-SR19GT Touchpad Not Detected

Postby makingsley » Mon, 17 Jan 2005 20:52:05 GMT

The computer originally comes with WinME, but I installed WinXP with
all the updated drivers etc. a year ago.  Everything was working
perfectly, but when I tried to format and reinstall WinXP again a
couple of days ago with all the XP drivers (including update on BIOS)
on the Sony Asia site, everything also worked EXCEPT for the Touchpad.
 I know the touchpad is ALPS Glidepoint, but Window seems not to be
able to detect it.  I didn't experience any drop of the laptop, so I
suspect it's not a hardware issue.  I've done an extended amount of
research on the net on this issue and I have yet come into a solution
with it.  But one advise that many VAIO users with similar problem
gave is that sometimes other applications affect the touchpad. 
However, I have installed a fresh O/S so I doubt that's the case. 
Another advise was to turn on PS/2 if it is disabled in BIOS.  Again,
it was unsuccessful because there's no such function for my laptop. 
My current action to encounter this problem is to use the recovery
disc and try to go back to WinME with all the original drivers.  After
spending endless amount of time, the touchpad is still not working,
but everything else seems fine.  However, the recovery disc does not
allow me to roll back to the original BIOS for WinME and I don't seem
to be able to find the original BIOS for my laptop from the net.  This
is so far my scenerio, if anyone have suggestions, I am welcome to
hear from it.  Thanks!

1.VAIO touchpad not detected!

I have the same problem and it started happening after reinstalling
WinXP.  I have all the updated drivers already (cause it worked when I
did a fresh format and install with XP a year ago).  My touchpad
wouldn't work, USB mouse does work though.  I checked my BIOS, can't
find any function with Legacy, closest thing in there is Plug and Play
on/off.  But I tried both on and off already, still a no go with the
touchpad!  I looked in the Device Manager (Show Hidden Devices), I see
under mouse there's an exclamation mark on the PS/2.  My computer is a
VAIO SR19GT just for someone that wants to help me.  After reading
many articles online, I suspect BIOS have something to do with it, I
will try going back to W2K BIOS (original from recover disc) tonight. 
But I'm welcoming all suggestions cause I really need help!

On the side, in winXP, we are suppose to be able to detect network
cards (those common D-Link ones), but after the installing, along with
teh not detected touchpad, doesn't seem to automatically install
driver, but I can do it manually.  But I remember it use to at least
detect and getting working before! vaio z1va is not detecting my d-link 2.4 ghz wireless router

Does anyone know why my sony vaio z1va laptop is not detecting my
d-link 2.4 ghz wireless router. My desktop with a wireless usb adapter
detects the router just fine.I have already downloaded the patch off
the sony webpage addressing the issues with the intel pro/wireless lan
2100 3b miniadapter but it has not resolved the problem. Any advice
would be welcome.

Thanks in advance,


3.Vaio PCG-R505JSP Can not undock when laptop is on

I get the following message:

"You can not eject your computer because one of the devices in the docking
station Communication port Com1 can not be stopped right now.  Try closing
all applications and ejecting the computer again later."

I did so but no way.  I always have to shut the laptop off to be able to
undock it.  I went to take a look in the device manager and it says that
this device is working properly.

I have a wireless broadband connection with a WiFi PC card.

Thank you for your help.


4.Sony VAIO PCG-GRZ630 WinXP Hotkey not working....

From the two drives I have, I decided to partition my D drive to be
primarily the drive for game playing so programs won't run in the background
and slooooow things down and cause framerate dropping.  C drive is fine of
course, so did a clean install of WinXP on D drive, and installed drivers
for my display (ATI Radeon Mobility 7500), Touchpad, and Yamaha audio.  But,
my Fn Hotkeys aren't registering.  I've already put in the Application
Recovery discs and installed HKey, but the Fn buttons still won't register.
I've checked Task Manager and it says both HKServ.exe and HKWnd.exe are
running, but when pressing Fn+F3, etc., nothing happens - no display or
sound onscreen to indicate the key presses, nor does it register at all.
Anyone know how to get this back up and runnin?
