Perhaps they can provide a manufacturer's name for the webcam and fingerprint reader and you can get the drivers directly from the manufacturers' websites. (I'd use the Contact Us button at the lower left of the page.) Support : Sony Asia Pacific
If Sony can't (or won't) help you might be able to identify the manufacturers yourself with this tutorial. Hardware Identification
Please post back so others can benefit from your experiences.
I don't know why they don't work. If they were really compatible with your machine they should work. If you're sure you didn't make any mistakes while downloading or installing, then it would appear that they're not compatible. Try using compatibility mode. Maybe they're really Vista drivers. Compatibility Mode
Perhaps you want to try a different website for obtaining drivers. This site says, "Just create a free account, log in, and start downloading the driver updates that you need." I have no personal experience with this website. DriverMax - free driver updates
If this still doesn't help I'd contact Sony. They would be the best source to find out why their drivers aren't working.
