Need Drivers for Sony Vaio Laptop

I have a Sony Vaio VGNFS15GP Laptop which got a virus and I was unable to open windows or boot (The dreaded blue screen) and after I took it in to be repaired was informed that it needed the harddrive reformatted. At a ridiculous cost mind you. I brought it home and reformatted and reinstalled windows xp however now need to reinstall drivers for it to work properly. I do not have the original boot disk, everything else is in the original box but the disk. There is a question mark next to Mass Storage Controller, Network Controller, PCI Device, SM Bus Controller, Universal Serial Bus Controller, Video Controller VGA.
Can you please help with this problem.

    Sorry it took so long to reply. Christmas Time is wonderful. The info you gave was great and I have installed the appropriate drivers, the computer is up and running again. Just a query as to why the blue screen happened as nothing had been accessed or downloaded bar the normal.

The question mark means that the driver for the component is not installed. Here is the driver page, download each driver and install them,

    It may have been a rouge driver or program. Keep your windows updated ..

if the sony laptop already has an OS on it or a newer version of windows than XP, you have to uninstall the current OS on the sony vaio. also, that means reformatting the Hard Drive on the sony which actually wipes it clean. Before you do that, you should have the original disk of the sony pc drivers installation or you need to go to the product(sony vaio) web site so you can download those drivers for (PCG-61213W) to disk or flash drive. after wiping Hard drive, you can install the XP, then the drivers that you downloaded. However, viaos are strange pc's so i would ask Sony if this XP install will be compatible with the Sony pc hardware components first. good luck.

My Dell 922 Printer is not being recognized by my Sony Vaio, using Windos Vista


Probably, its because the printer drivers are missing.
You need to have drivers for it.

Which you can find at:

http://www.techspot.com/drivers/driver/file/information/8761/

Click on the blue "Download now" button.

Download these drivers and install on your sony vaio laptop.

If they still dont work, leave me a comment here and i will try to do a workaround.

Thank you for using Fixya.
Have a nice day.

I was playing online games on my sony vaio. Suddenly I got blue lines on the screen and the laptop stopped responding. So I tried restarting the laptop but I get blue thin vertical lines before the laptop...


Blue thin lines before it boots will rule out an operating system or driver fault. So it would appear something in the machine has failed.
Do you have a VGA monitor you can connect to it and see whether it shows the fault? This will show that if the fault also shows on the external monitor, it is likely an electronic fault on the main board, whereas if it works on the external monitor but not on the built-in monitor, my guess would be the cable that goes from the main board up through the hinge of the screen into it, or a connector, or an actual fault with the LCD display.
Windows booting normally once the display drivers were disabled indicates to me that Windows is no longer detecting the faulty display and therefore boots normally - possibly pointing to failed electronics in some way. It could even be corrupt BIOS that controls the video or something along these lines, though that's unlikely.
Good luck, either way it sounds like it's off to a computer repair shop. Is it under warranty?
