Re: SVE14A1S1EB Missing options Vaio control Center

What exactly is missing in VAIO Control Center?  Usually when something is missing, it means the driver for that feature may not be installed.  If you provide this information I may be able to inform you what driver can populate that section of VCC.

 

This is a Europe model so drivers can be found here.

 

Make sure to refer to the section that labels Windows 8 drivers instead of Windows 7.

Re: SVE14A1S1EB Missing options Vaio control Center

I purchased this Laptop. Using it for past 3 months. By mistake i uninstalled VAIO Control Center. But now i am unable to find the setup to install it again. All i am able to find are the updates/ patches to VAIO Control Center from the support website:


http://www.sony.co.in/support/product/svf15213sn

 

but not of any use.


However, i found this link:


http://www.sony.co.in/support/download/523014


but after installing it, i am not able to find the SOUND QUALITY option in the Control Center itself (it used to be there). So now i am not able to change sound settings : Music , Movies , Bollywood and Custom which i was able to earlier. Please provide me the solution ASAP.
Thanks and Regards.

Re: vaio control center missing options

Hi rahulrdso, what is the operating system of your unit? Did you do a clean install of Windows? If not,  you can still recover the original Vaio Control Center using Vaio Care. You can follow this steps:

 

1. Open Vaio Care

2. Choose Advance Tools

3. Then choose Restore and Recovery

4.Choose the option Reinstall Applications and drivers.

5. A window will appear please find Vaio Control Center and install.
