Having problems with your Sony VAIO K45 Notebook ?

1. Wireless Network Icon not displaying. 2. The screen displaying smaller than laptop monitor screen 3. Function key F4 not working


Answers :

3. You may need to download the latest video driver from your laptop or video card manufacturer... if you have an ATI brand videocard, for instance, there is a utility called ATI catalyst (i think) that adds extra options and utilities such as extending the monitor to a second display, or TV. This is NOT included with the driver, which allows you to change screen resolutions, but an extra set of "bonus" utilities like the one you are describing. You may also try to use Fn+F8 to swap between the TV and montior.\015\0122. For XP.
