How can I get drivers for windows 2000 on Sony Vaio laptops PCG-K13? I have tried Sony's Website, but all they offer is XP, and the XP drivers won't install. Can anyone tell me were I could find these drivers or if there is a way to make the XP drivers work with 2000?

Yes, the good old sony download section!!

What is it your actually having problems installing? 2000 should detect most of your Hardware, most probably the modem isn't working and maybe the audio/display.

well, after looking at the sony website, and the documentation about your laptop, "Sony recommends Microsoft® Windows® XP." is written at the bottom of the documentation sheet.

it may be that the computer will only work with XP
