Firstly ensure you are connecting it into the same USB port as last time, as it will look for drivers if in a different port. Also worth checking to see if another USB device is detected in the same USB port(eg usb pen,dongle, game controller etc),if so the port is ok. If still nothing remove camera and lead. If you still have the software and driver cd that you got with the camera, dig it out. If you have the installation cd, look in Start>Control Panel>Add & Remove Programmes and look for the Sony driver or software in the list. Click on the line and then on right hand side click remove. Insert the cd and re-install drivers or let it autorun, and only connect your camera when instructed to do so; or, after the installation has finished. Hope this works, as the connection between camera and pc is either a lead fault or camera input fault if none of above works.
