Hapoogold gave me the driver download site, all i need to do is just download the driver. and install it. I guess this only applies to the sony models that is applying for the Window 7 upgrade Campaign. if you try to install the driver and it says it's the latest driver. you can try to uninstall your driver and reinstall with the one you have downloaded. Hope this helps i am not really a computer person...

maybe you might want to let windows update do abit of updating first? then see what happen next? or you can send it to sony's servicing center, it's faster that way, ( by the way my laptop model cannot be found also.... how weird.... )
