I have this Sony Vaio, VGN-CS16T, running 12.04. It is a chinese computer that has not been sold outside of south east asian markets. I don't read chinese, so I can't find a lot of support for it.

There are a few buttons at the top of the keyboard, rewind, play, fast forward, av mode, volume down, volume up and a capture button. whenever I hit one of those buttons, the whole system freaks out. When I hit the capture button, seemingly random applications or documents open. When I hit any of the media buttons the mouse behaves erratically. The right button stops working all together, and sometimes the left button becomes select everything and wont let me deselect.

Id love to be able to use these buttons. If nothing else, I'd love to be able to disable them until I can get them working again.

Some other behavior i'm experiencing, and asking in separate posts... the brightness up and down buttons dont work. and after the machine goes to sleep, upon waking up the keyboard nolonger works. That might be related to this.

Thanks for any help.

It was telling me that the files contents had too many characters, so I did it that way. I'm not sure how to attach files here. –  Erasmosis May 26 '12 at 12:50
