Windows 7 Home Premium x64,

Thank you for your help. I have tried, but I can't install the drivers from the site you linked? The files in the map after downloading wont work? Do I have to install the drivers manually, because I also tried that, but windows just updates them from their own site, and they are much older drivers than the one i can download from the site you have linked. I haved tried a lot of things but without any result. My wireless internet connection is very unstable, it always looses connection from time to time, which is bit of a problem. Is there anything I can do about this?

Download the updated driver as suggested by panais. Uninstall the driver through device manager; make sure to tick the box to delete the driver software for this device. Do not restart. Install the updated driver.

How To Find Drivers:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

As zigzag3143 noted, SFEP should be updated. You can update with a newer model Sony VAIO. Sony eSupport - VPCEB15FX - Software & Drivers is where you can update it; create a restore point first, just in case. 99.9% chance you will not need the restore point, but it is a good idea to be safe since you are installing a driver for another model. In my experience (I've now had two VAIOs), the driver works on all models of VAIO laptops.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64,

I've tried to locate the drivers on google, but without succes. I dont know that much about computers, so i am afraid that i will install some wrong drivers, and then have more problems with my Vaio than I already have. :/ Today I had to restart my computer 3 times because it crashed/freezed --> everytime on Youtube, when i listened to some music. The problems often occurs occasionally, so it is difficult to find out why.
