Question about Computers & Internet
OK, alright, fine ... if I’d waited through the “I’ll just try this” phase I wouldn’t have started this thread. Here’s what I did to get my PCG-TR5GP drivers restored.
 Download all the files in Rahul’s archive.
 Unzip each of these files into its own folder and burn all those folders to a CD.
 Put the CD into the Vaio.
 Open Control Panel / System / Device Manager.
 Go to the “Other devices” section where there’s probably an unhappy huddle of yellow question-mark icons.
 Double-click on each icon in turn and select Reinstall Driver.
 Check “No, not this time” in answer to Windows’ wheedling request to connect to Windows Update. Click Next.
 On the following screen leave “Install the software automatically” checked and click Next again.
 Watch with immense satisfaction as Windows finds and loads the appropriate driver.
For two of the drivers (audio and video) a restart is required. Everything else comes up immediatement.
I also went through the CD I’d created and manually installed Sony Utilities and Sony Shared Library, which then allowed me to manually install Power Panel (otherwise the Power Panel install complains about a missing system file). Manual installation is a simple case of going into each folder and double-clicking setup.exe.
again the web address is below
hope this helps.
best of luck.
please rate good.
