The only driver that will work with that old Intel 915G graphics is the last XP driver as Intel has dropped all support for it,

Graphics — Older Intel® graphics controllers and Microsoft Windows 7* operating system

With it being a Sony laptop and knowing how Sony works you will likely have to get the driver Sony, as they don't like to allow the sue of reference drivers on their computers for some reason. Use the link marsmimar posted and look up your specific model of Vaio and get it from there.
