Thanks for your suggestion, I went onto the sony web site but it does not list my model which is VPCEC2S0E.

We were unable to find an exact match for the model you entered.
Based on your entry it appears that you may have one of the models listed below. Please be aware that information for similar products may not be fully applicable to your model.

These are the only choices in the list, so do I choose one of these given that statement above?

VPCEC2SFX
VPCEC2SFXB1
VPCEC2SFXW1

Thanks again
Susie

Thanks for your reply, I have just tried thae link and ran it and it took me to the same information as in my last post. I just also opened Sony Care from All Programs and checked the model in the bottom part of the screen and it gave me the same code VPCEC2S0E.

Am I able to select a different Model or is the driver I need available somewhere else do you think?

Kind Regards
Susie
