Hi, I recently reformatted my sony vaio pcg-z1wap, and after the reformatting, lots of drivers ahd obviously gone, I have mangaed to replace nearly all of them, however, i can not find the driver for the wireless switch.

Before the reformat, the laptop had an icon in the tray which allowed you to turn bluetooth and Wireless LAN on and off, however, that is no longer there. I can find a download to get it back.

does anyone no what i can do? Please reply quick, ishaan

Can't find this model in the Uk site , is it American or European ? Do you have the wireless LAN working at the moment , you can probably turn it on and off from Device Manager / Network Adapters / ( wireless device ) / Advanced . ( possibly do the same for bluetooth )

this model is american i think and my parents had it shipped from the us.


i can enable and disable it from the device manager, but that does not allow me to send files through laptop to other bluetooth devices...

for some reason, the Bluespace NE software says bluetooth is turned of and wont let me use it to send things via bluetooth.

Hi again , did you download and install the Sony Shared Library before installing the Sony Notebook Utilities which includes the wireless switch software ? If you didn't then you needed to ! click here and READ THE WHOLE PAGE , including , just before half way down , the " Required " bit written in red , that says about the Sony Shared Library ( download from there and run , after uninstalling the Notebook Utilities you had previously loaded but could not see ) Hopefully that might do it !!
