Question about Sony VAIO VGN-CR220E/P Notebook
I have a sony vaio vgn-cr116e. I have installed xp pro instead of vista and I cannot find a driver for the ethernet contoller. Sony's site offers a driver for the motherboard that does not work. I called them and they told me "Sorry but some of the downloads may not work with XP. We'll work on it".
If your system is new and it was made for vista your probably not going to get it to work
try the download again if still does'nt work then i'm sorry to tell you but vista will need to be installed.There are ways around it but your ethernet will not work properly so if you really want xp you'll need to have the ethernet changed and possibly other things depending on the pc
it would'nt be worth it for you to change things in your system to be compatible with xp
please don't forget to rate me
