Does anyone know where I can get a sound card driver for a Sony Vaio Model PCV-7762 ?  I upgraded the OS to XP Pro and it doesn't recognize the sound card.  I don't have the original disks that came with it.

If for some reason you cannot get the correct drivers , Email sony support
supportcentral@info.sel.sony.com
and they would give you exactly where to find in the website.

I have checked all the sites including that one site, Sunray, and my model is not listed.  It's absolutely the correct model listed on the back of the computer near the power supply.  Model PCV-7762.

Thanks for trying.  Anyone else?

Looks to me sony must have stopped support online drivers for it. You should email them and see the response. They are pretty fast in their response and could certainly shed some light on were to get the drivers.
I did see that your model is a valid one

It's strange.  It's a fairly new computer.  2.0 Ghz...
If I get a response from them before I get a better answer, I'll award you the points.

Thanks!

have you checked the website of the sound card manufacturer and tried the xp drivers ?

If you are not sure about the sound card details, use this
EVEREST Home Edition:

and try to get the drivers

Your model may be a PCV-RX860.

I found this cross reference that has a response from sony linking the 2 models for a customer:
Message : The model number on the back of my machine says is: PCV - 7762 while the model number on the front is: PCV-RX860.........  Sony replied: Thank you for contacting SONY Online Support.
The model number of your VAIO is PCVRX860.
Thank you for the opportunity to be of assistance.

If this is correct, the page on the Sony site for the PCV-RX860 is
http://ciscdb.sel.sony.com/perl/modelpage.pl?template=EN&mdl=PCVRX860&session_id=1efacae74d7ceeeb2950d378f58590e7
                   (Note:this all goes on one line.)

The audio driver page for the Yamaha® YMF753 Audio Driver for this model is:
