WINDOWS 10 CONTROL CENTRE

After checking with Microsoft I did a full clean install of Windows 10 64 bit my VGNFW290

Everyting is fine except as there is no control centre I cannot control the battery charging and it is charging at 100% which I do not want.

I have done lots of searching but just go round in circles........

What is a solution to this please ?

Re: WINDOWS 10 CONTROL CENTRE

Hi Corrour,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

We do not recommend upgrading the OS to Windows 10. The drivers and software that we have for this laptop are for up to Windows 7 only. The Vaio Control Center is removed on Windows 10. You may perform a full format recovery if you want the Vaio Control Center function. https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/36806/

 

We kindly recommend visiting our Sony Global Web site for information on contacting the Sony Support Center in your region at http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/Support/.
 
Regards,
Jen

Re: WINDOWS 10 CONTROL CENTRE

Do you have a solution to this yet as my battery is at 100% all of the time which as you know is not good 

All I ask is a minor software application that will allow me to stop charging at say 50 or 75% like I had before

Re: WINDOWS 10 CONTROL CENTRE

Battery care function not only os controlled, if you turn on battery care function (example: %50) vaio control center write this data on the bios. this means this rule in any case it becomes law. new operating system installation cant change or ignore this law.

 

Serch machine model number on the support page, Install preinstalled version hardware drivers and vaio control center and then install windows 10 version drivers and vaio control center.

Battery care function only controlled by vaio control center sofware.
