    I have exactly this problem with a new external sound card that fixed all other audio problems but now won't play TV audio. What I think is wrong is that the Vaio TV card was routing its sound directly to the onboard soundcard. Now there should be a way to tap the output from the TV card and feed it into the new external sound card from the back of the computer. Which ports? What cable(s)??

How do i select a different source input on sony vaio pcv-v1/g to use with an external games console

You need t have GigaPocket installed to use the TV Tuner. You should use the AV in sockets for audio and video. The Gigapoket software from Sony should allow you to select the Video to view the input Sony Giga Pocket 5 5 Update Utility
Or you could try VLC which should accept input from your video card.

VideoLAN Download official VLC media player for Windows

Re-Loading Software

Since they installed a generic copy of xp, there are none of the sony installed add-ons present on the computer. go here to view the available downloads for your system provided by sony, you will have to select the "EVERYTHING" tab to see the giga downloads if it does not load there.
Otherwise you will have to contact sony for a recovery disk specific to your system.
