    it comes with Vista Home Edition originally, so Sony has not listed the xp drivers.
    your other option is to download Everest Home Edition

    install and run it, it will detect your hardware devices and can tell you where to get the drivers for them individually.

    Or you could run System Information to identify driverless chips:
    Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
    both four digits long.
    Look up those numbers here:

    This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First port of call is the manufacturer's website.  If no joy there, try a driver database like Driverguide:

    These hardware diagnostics are all free:
    Everest: (as suggested above by SheharyaarSaahil )

    Good luck!

    The advice to identify the chipset as the first step and go from there is sound, and is consistent in all the responses. The wugnet link goes directly to a discussion specific to finding Microsoft XP drivers for a Sony Vaio Laptop, which was the original question.
