Having Trouble with Driver installation on Sony Vaio

I recently installed a new hard drive on my sony vaio laptop model# VPCEH25FM. I didn't have any of the original bootup disc's so I had to get a new windows 7 disc.

I installed windows 7 32 bit, but when I went to look at the drivers I needed to download from the sony support site, they were all for windows 7 64 bit. Will I need to purchase the 64 bit version? Some of the drivers work but some don't. Would I possibly be able to download 32 bit drivers from another model number?

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. You have 4GB of Ram ? .. So Windows 32 Bit OS is not making the most of that available .. Have you ran Windows Updates .. If so please Post any missing Device Drivers you may have ..

Thank you for your response.

Yes I have 4 GB of ram, and I've installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.

I have no connection to the internet because the network adapter driver is missing, and the 64 bit one recommended from Sony for my model doesn't fix it.

The device drivers missing are: Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, PCI Device, PCI Simple Communications Controller, and Unknown Device.
