....I wouldn't count on, or expect to them work, but if they do it's a bonus. I think there was another thread a few ago about the same model, or that series which couldn't get them working.

If the Windows driver works, then it's just a matter of installing the software.

That's how I've always rolled, as it's a great way to learn imo.

Can you also suggest a software?

Unfortunately no, and not through lack of trying.

Sorry, I'm being quite lazy, but I've been on the road all day so quite tired, and thought you might have taken the numerous hints about "learning" Only joking, you could try this...

Arcsoft WebCam Companion Software

...which is from Sony, but if that doesn't work let us know and we'll try something else.

If the FN keys don't work, it will be a pain, as this series of Vaio does not have extra keys for Home, End, PgUp, PgDn alongwith other FN keys Mute, Volume, Brightness, Zoom, Scr Lk, Pause Break.

That came pre-installed with Vaio alongwith Magic-I. Is that a trial version link?

There's no harm in installing it, but whether you need to or not depends on if you suffer the issue mentioned.

Thanks! Do you have link to Magic-I as well?

Tried clean installing Windows 7 Professional; when in 'Where do you want to install?' [after selecting Custom (Advanced) option], I am not getting the Advanced option for format (clean install) under the listed HDD partitions.

Have posted my query here, pls assist.

Sure - ftp://download.sony.com/US/pc/SOAOTH-70193889-US.EXE

But you'll need extract the exe with Universal Extractor and then you'll have to run the setup file inside the "tempexe" folder.

The exe that you download from Sony, is model specific, so will only install on certain models, and in order to bypass that check you need to extract all the files contained within the exe file.

So....

1. Download and install Universal Extractor

2. (should have it already) Download the Magic-I software.

3. Run UE, which will then ask you to choose the file you want to extract from.

4. Use the default option, and begin the extraction.

5. Open the new folder created by UE and you will find a folder called TempExe.

Open that, run the setup.exe, and Bobs your uncle.
