I have a Sony Laptop VGN-AR730E/B running Windows Vista. I had to format and reinstall from my recovery disks but I did not install all the Vaio programs as I had my own programs that did what most of them did, only better. I did not install all of the Sony Vaio applications because they seemed to be bloatware and excessive programs at that. When I have a CD or DVD in the tray, the eject button and the sound control above it on top of the laptop that has the + and - do not work. I can open the CD/DVD tray by the little button on the side of the computer but not with the eject button on top. Everything else works fine and I have no conflicts in device manager. If someone could tell me which part of the Vaio programs controls this so that I could install it I would be most appreciative. I've posted this question on the Sony software forum but not a single reply has been made and that was over 2 weeks ago.

Thanks for all your help in advance.

How did you install the operating system to exclude the OEM applications?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
