Souseran: That is something i already try i thought it be that one as well but it is not. It tells me the same thing when i try to install :( and that's when i go to the Gsx folder i believe if i try to install from there root file it does not even work at all cause it for a docking device.

So i need something so i can get video card to work real bad right now the computer will not even use the whole screen just the middle of it only half the area :(

Please help and "ItsRob" The file you said is the same file that is in the link i gave it wont work its the update.

Sorry, yes, I noticed that after I posted.

Does the "VGP-UPR1 Original Software" file maybe include some sort of Sony utility that auto-detects your hardware and downloads the latest drivers?

Have you tried contacting Sony support?  They shouldn't make it that hard to get a video driver.

Good luck

Try installing the chipset driver from intels website first.

try this to identify the devices :

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:   http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  
Check the manufacturer's website first or google them - or post them here

If your LAN is running, you can also use windows update, or drivereasy (free) :  www.drivereasy.com
let it scan, then hit Get Drivers, it will list the drivers - you can google them, or let drivereasy do it

Thekiddotus,

What operating system did you install? If it was Windows 7, see this page:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFZ210CE&upd_id=5873&os_id=45

According to that, video drivers aren't available because Sony expects you to use the Windows 7 drivers.

If you installed a different OS, please advise.
