I advise my clients NOT to purchase systems/notebooks with VISTA if you are on or have XP PRO systems. It will all depend on what Sony policy is. I wish you luck but as I said there is NO way I will advise VISTA you could try sending them back and purchasing ones with XP PRO. + 0 Votes hi ! kamal here boss_kamal 6 years ago first of all, go to your vendor( sony ), they 'll defin'tly help you, if not, go to google.com and type ''drivers for ....( sony with model no)'' Ok + 0 Votes XP Drivers cballinger 6 years ago Don't you just love replies that don't help. Windows Vista - the next Version of Windows ME... According to the Sony site all versions of your system the 190, 190E, 190EB, FE, and N all come with Vista so it appears your only option is either to contact Sony support direct or perhaps try www.drivers.com and see if they might have drivers (video, audio, etc.) that you need for XP Pro to support that model. The other option might be to contact Sony support and see if a similar Sony model that still supports XP Pro will work with this model or even if they have a link that they just don't publish on their web site. The sad part of many support sites is that as soon as a new operating system is released they remove all links to old versions so techs trying to still use older versions no longer have access to those needed resources. + 0 Votes Friends don't let friends buy Sony dl Updated - 6 years ago Having had the great misfortune of once owning a Sony VAIO, I can report that friends just don't let friends buy Sony computers. Technical support is virtually nonexistent. I'm sure the other folks here will guide you to sources for the proper drivers, however there is a website that does this for you (for a small fee): DriverAgent.com. If you use this link you can get a discount: http://driveragent.com/pcworld.php?PHPSESSID=14aca2a66dfbc20534d80d1ceafc5710&PHPSESSID=14aca2a66dfbc20534d80d1ceafc5710 Run the free test and see which drivers it comes up with for you. Good luck. + 0 Votes What drivers do you need rmarlin 6 years ago First of all, you need to let me know what drivers you are trying to get and to remind you, drivers are operating system specific. you can't take drivers for Windows 98 and use them for Windows XP so get back with me.
