    I recently did a complete fresh install of windows XP on my Sony Vaio VGN SZ1VP/C.
    I have found some of the drivers for some things off of the sony website in an 'original drivers package' . This package contains a wireless driver, but i can not get this to install.

    I've have searched everywhere for a Wireless Driver for this laptop and can't find it anywhere!

    Does anyone know where i can get the driver for this wireless card?

    Many thanks

    First Name:
    if you go to this set and click on the "detect my model"

    does that help find the drivers

    otherwise can we see an device manager screen shot

    {Device Manager}
    Post back the results in device manager
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    windows 7
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there
    are there any ! ? or X

    post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

    Under Property - drop down

    Thanks for the reply

    If i go to the link above and detect my model, it tells me i have to model i thought i had and then sends me over to the Europe site where i got some of the other drivers from.

    Here is a screen shot of device manager,

    The ethernet adapter shows up fine in network connections but no wireless does.
    I assume the wireless is 'Network controller'?

    Ill just have a look in to hardware ids
