I'm working on a Sony Vaio for a friend, and after a Vista Home Premium 32 install, the eject button on the side of the keyboard doesn't work. It is a VGN-AR320E. I have scanned the Vaio website for what driver it might look like several times but none of them seem to work. The internet is otherwise failing me, too. Please help, OCC!

What button ejects the disc?
Is it a normal button or a standalone button on the drive its self?

Try this:
Download the attached program below and unzip it
Place this program in a folder where it wont be deleted (Windows directory maybe?)

You have two options from here:
  • Place a shortcut to ejectcd.exe on the desktop, open up the properties and make a shortcut key (ctrl+E or preferrable try yo map the unused eject key)
  • Place a shortcut to ejectcd.exe in the quick launch bar, then you press the WIN key plus the number of the shortcut (if it is first then you press WIN+1 etc.)

Do the other special sony buttons work? (i.e. FN keys, media keys, etc)

Did you install:

sonysharedlibrary
sony firmware extension parser
any registry updates for dvd drives

There should be a pinhole that you can stick a small paperclip or pin in to eject it manually.

Hey guys thanks for the suggestions, but believe me, I already know how to eject a disk without the eject key. Rather, the guy who owns this laptop is fairly anal, and he just wants EVERY button to work on the laptop.

The problem I am now having is that I can't get the utilities dll package to install. It goes through the installer all fine and dandy but the dll just won't start. I think it is this lack of starting on the dll's part that is preventing the utilities from executing properly.
