Sony vaio laptop

i went and brought windows 7 ultimate today ( a small shop was selling them early), i want to install it but im wondering how i will get all the drivers for my laptop back as the sony site is absolutely useless.

Strange, I have every driver/program for my vgn ar630e and got them all from Sonys site... You will be surprised how many windows 7 will already have. I suggest you get the drivers for your webcam. multimedia keys and you should be good to go... Let me know if you need any help...

Here is the drivers for your VAIO. Now these are for Windows Vista so first I would install 7 and see what drivers it installed for you. If any drivers are not installed than install the appropiate one from the VAIO site. Also do this for a driver installed by 7 that doesn't include a manufacture-specific feature (such as touchpad scrolling or multimedia buttons).

Hope this helps!

Sony Vaio VGN-FS285M

I have the above laptop which had XP built in. I did a clean install of Windows 7 - but should have downloaded the Graphic Card drivers first for the Nvidia. Also, the Wireless card software so that I could get back on line. These needed to be the Vista drivers for 7 to see the hardware.

Windows 7 is working fine but I still have not got my Function keys working.

this is my first post. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NR430E. I downloaded Windows 7 update advisor, the results showed that I could update to W-7. Sony web site says that my computer will not run Windfows 7 and that they will not post updated drivers and software at any later date. Now the machine is not very old. My question is, am I stuck witg Vista and a copy of Windows 7 that I can not use? or is there a way to work around it? Thanks.
