Help with a Sony Vaio laptop please.

Hi there, I have a Sony Vaio A197VP click here

You cant really see from the picture but one of those buttons just above the keyboard has a picture of a magnifying glass on it and when pressed it toggles between resoultions 1280 x 768 (the one I use almost all the time) and 1600 x 1200. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to change the resolutions it toggles between? I would like it to toggle between 1280 x 768 and 1024 x 768 (which I use to play a snooker game I quite like!!)

Thanks a lot, any suggestions would be great and much appreciated.

It is probably not a windows option but there may be a program on you laptop setup by sony to configure the keys.

Or may be in the BIOS

HotKeys :-
Hotkeyz click here
Astatix Launcher click here

These progs can be used to reconfigure keys.

Thanks a lot. Ive downloaded Hotkeyz but it only seems able to do a certain number of commands (i.e. not toggle resolutions). Is this correct?

Thanks I will investigate BIOS and any Sony programs.

Kind regards, F.T.

Sorry if my link doesnt work, its just a photo showing the buttons on my laptop that I am referring too. They are extra buttons (i.e. volume change, brightness change etc).

Can anyone please help? I have emailed SOny but no reply and also searched the web but no luck. I really want to be able to configure the 'change resolution' button.

Thanks, F.T.

'Sony Customer Information Centre 08705 111 999 during the hours of 8.30am - 6.00pm, Monday to Friday.'

Or try emailing them again saying you've been advised to by someone on the PCA Helproom (you never know, it might make a difference).

Ok, will try them on Mon, thanks.

In the meantime if anyone has any more ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, F.T.
