Hi, I just downgraded my VAIO PCG-384L to winXP, but I need the drivers for wireless, NIC, sound, etc... I've downloaded several drivers already, but none of them have worked so far :(
The only support in Sony website is for Vista

Thanx for any help or link to download any driver

without doing any research on this model... you might be able to determine what WLAN/BT card is in it due to the presence of a FCCC sticker on the back listing the device model and it's appropriate wireless radio device warning.  Try this and meanwhile...

I'll look into the laptop specs and see if i can get you some drivers.

Open the Device Manager, click Start then Run and enter devmgmt.msc
Right click on the devices you need drivers for and select properties.
Then select the "Details" tab
Use Ctrl+c to copy the device instance ID string.
Then paste it (Ctrl+v) in your reply.
I will try to find your drivers for you.

Try these drivers for the wireless:  http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=19533&lang=eng
The Dx32 one is drivers only, the other one includes the ProSet utility.

crescue,

"...I need the drivers for wireless, NIC, sound, etc..."

I post links to drivers for your nic and video here:  ID: 35066928

You then award all points to a solutuion which states "...once your lan is running, you can use drivereasy..."

How did you get your lan working?
