Hi all,

I lost recovery disk of my Vaio VGN-B99GP. However, my laptop had so
many problems, I had to format and reinstall WinXP. I have a back up of
Driver folder so that I can install driver for sound, vga, network
card, wireless, modem..... But the keyboard can not used Fn keys. I
guess I need the special software to control function keys, I search a
lot on SONY sites but not found anything can work with VGN-B99GP.

Anyone know how to "active" the function keys ?

Thanks and Best Regards.
Happy Lunar New Year.
Tai, Tiet.

Go to

Download and install the Sony Shared Library, Sony Notebook Control
Device, and the Sony Programmable I/O Control Device Driver.

These are for the VGN-B100 on the US site and will likely work for your
ANZO laptop. If not, then visit the Sony Euro site.

The two applications you need are HKServ.exe and HKWnd.exe and these
should be running at start.  Check if there is a Sony folder either in
C: or C:\Program Files that might have these two apps.

I'll check my restore disk set that I was correct about the libraries I
referenced when I get to my office.

Which your reply, i continued research and finally, i can make these
function keys work. You are right, we need Sony ShareLib and Sony
Utilities and Hotkey program. I follow the instruction of the site

However, my laptop has 2 programable keys that are S1 and S2. As
orgininal, Sony assigned "Mute" to S1, leave S2 free. Now, I want to
assign as they did but .... googling :)

Thanks for your help so much.
