Hi,

Recently I've purcahsed Sony-Vaio laptop with Vista Home Premium preinstalled. Everything fine except the following.

Everytime when I am trying to shutdown the PC, it is always giving the default option as SLEEP in the list. How can I change this to SHUTDOWN or the last selected option.

When I am connecting the headphone to the jack, I can't hear the sound in the headphone. But if I Mute the speakers from the system tray icon, and to select
PLAYBACK DEVICES and then to go Recording Tab and then only I can hear the sound through the headphone. One of my friend told me that, solution may be available in vista service pack. As of now, all the updates were installed and I dont know whether I've downloaded Vista Service Pack 1 seperately. How could I know, whether vista in my laptop is with service pack 1. It is usually displaying in XP or versions before if we select Properties in My Computer. With my vista copy, it is showing onlly Vista Home premium.

Please help to find soultions for these.

Regards,

Sreeram :huh:

Click on the control panel, then 'power options'. Then click on "Choose what the power buttons do". You need to configure your machine to shut down when you click that option.

I don't know if SP1 will fix the other problem, but you can click on the Programs and Features (thru' control panel), then click on "View Installed Updates", in the left panel to see if it was installed automatically...which I doubt it was.

No. It is not from the power options. It is happening when I am want to shutdown the pc means the default option appearing when I want to shutdown the PC.

For the audio problem, I dont know whether Vista SP1 will fix it but I really like to know how to solve the issue.

Rgs,
