Hi,
I can't seem to find any sites where i can download graphics drivers for a Sony Vaio Z600NE (also known as PCG-5291), on a Win2k platform.
It appears to now be 'obsolete', i've already tried www.ita.sel.sony.com but it is of no help, any ideas?

Hmmm.. If it is not in that site then probably you may or may not get in other internet sites..

I would suggest you to email Sony customer support @ supportcentral@info.sel.sony.com and you
will get an answer within 24 hrs

Do you know what graphics card is in there?  Do you have an driver disk for another OS?
