Ethernet controller driver on vgn-cr116e running xp

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".

    All other drivers are there on their web site except that one. They claim they are working on it and will post it when it is done. Don't hold your breath. I don't understand why they say this laptop is XP compatible when in fact they do not have all the drivers for it. I don't call that compatible.

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

I need drivers for ethernet controller, network controller, video controller plus Mass storage controller and PCI Devices drivers for windows XP of Vaio PCG-6G1M


Your Notebook Manufacturing Company SONY says that your Notebook Model VGN-SZ460N/C is optimized to work with Vista OS only. So the drivers you will be installing for XP may lost some of their functionality under XP platform. Still, you can download all your Notebook supporting drivers from this link.

Download Drivers from here


But remember to select your Operating System (XP/Vista/Seven) when you will be downloading from the above site.

I hope this will be helpful to you.

How I can get recovery disc for my laptop Sony Vaio VGN-SR 26GL?


You probably need a recovery disk because you dont have the necessary drivers and the software that came pre-installed on your laptop. but instead of worrying about that, why not just get any operating system disk of your choice, install it, download the drivers for your laptop online and install them too, and interestingly you can also keep all the drivers you downloaded with the OS Disk incase of future necessity for your laptop repairs.
In case your decide to do this, the link to download the drivers for your laptop is :

Happy Installation!...lol
