The disc supplied with sony cybershot P200 application can't instal on windows 7. Is there any solution for this? Regards/Ash

The drivers needed to connect your Sony camera to a computer and transfer files are already included in the operating system, so you don't have to install anything. If there is a software on that disk to enable you to edit, sort pictures, etc, you could try to Troubleshoot compatibility, by right-clicking on setup.exe located on your cd.

I have this laptop but don't have the orignal CD's and also replaced the laptop. I can't seem to install XP back on there using a XP CD. It keeps asking for the Rescue CD's that came with the laptop. ...

If you have the COA sticker on the bottom of your laptop, you can pretty much use any disc with the same OS as the sticker (XP Home won't work for XP Pro and vice-versa), the discs you can use several times to install, but the COA is what you're really paying for.
I don't advise ths next suggestion unless you have a pretty good idea of what you're doing, but you could always download an OS from a torrent site such as or Not the most legal way of doing it, it's really pretty dark grey area, but it is pretty effective

Reinstall xp

You have to make certain that the system BIOS are set correctly to boot your CD drive first. If you BOOT sequence is set correctly any cd that is bootable should begin to boot first. So try I believe to depress F2 when you boot up your PC for the first time this takes you into the system setup. System BIOS, goto the boot menu and change the settings to make certain that your CD drive is the first to boot. When you reboot your PC make certaint the CD is in the drive before you reboot. In addition you will quickly see a sentence pop up asking you if you would like to begin setup, and if so, depress any key to boot from cd. This should start the process for you!
