Laptop VAIO drivers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

I have just reinstalled XP on an old laptop for a friend and it needs a few network drivers. However the laptop is quite old and finding it difficult to get hold of the drivers.

The model is PCG 5B1M.

It also wont connect even when I plug an ethernet cable in... would this be down to not having chipset drivers installed?

Judging from your i7 system you prolly already know that windows 7 will locate all the drivers for you. I had an old laptop that would constantly crash. I tried to put win7 on it but my hdd was like 10 gb. I think win7 32 bit takes maybe 12 GB, and 64 bit takes like 16- 20 GB if i remember correctly. Also a lot of old laptop cpus dont support 64 bit. If you have the hdd space i would do that.

yeah already tried putting 7 on it but only have the 64bit version and it doesnt support that.

So then i went back to XP but cannot join any networks because im guessing I dont have the drivers. Ethernet or wireless.
