New install do I need to load drivers

I have just finished loading 7 on to my Sony Vaio notebook and all went well. It will run fine but I noticed that I can't scroll up and down on my touch pad and my camera will not work. Do I need to go get drivers from Sony?

Hi and welcome

To find out what devices need drivers type device driver in search. Any device that has a yellow triangle on it needs drivers.

Let us know if you need help.

Thanks zigzag always love to find new forums.

I did what you suggested and there are two ! under other devices. Both are labeled base system device. There is no description so I have no clue what they are for. If I do an update driver it says unable to install your base system device.

My question though is a little off that though. For example my touch pad works but not like it use too. I could drag up and down the right side and it would scroll the pages for me. Now nothing happens other than as a pointer and double tapping. If I go to mouse set up there is no pad functions there to change. I know windows "makes it work" but is that the right driver or is there a specific one to get.

Without knowing what model of Vaio you have, it's hard to point you in the right direction.

There is, but in the very last line, I couldn't see for looking. Try them two above and let us know if they work.

EDIT: Are you 32 or 64bit, as the touchpad driver is x64.
