Eneter your serial number and product code on here and it might be able to give you all the information you need....

I stress MIGHT as that is an old system and sony might not keep details on it anymore.

    To be honest it doesnt sound like its any good.

    It would be more trouble trying to replace the cd drive, especially with no documentation.

    If thats the only problem I would be suprised, I would expect the hard disk to have a few bad sectors from just the age of it but it could be ready to stop all together, most hard drives only last 2 and gradually go downhill from there.

    Theres nothing wrong with a P3 or windows 98 but you might have problems compatability on some websites and even with basic software updates from java.

    It did sound like a good little project but with all the problems you've mentioned iit would be easier to get an up to date laptop and try to repair that.

Drivers sony pcgfr77g/b filehappo

Since this laptop is not a newer laptop, and it is a Japan laptop, it is not easy to locate the original driver.

If you can provide the details info of the VGA component, then we can locate the same component from other brand name laptop (probably driver from HP or Dell will work). You can do this to get the details info:
Control Panel, System, Device Manager, [Component Name], [VGA], [Right click], Properties, Details tab, Property pull down; chose Hardware Ids and write down the VEN and the DEV sections in the Value's box (including the VEN and the DEV words)

I am looking for a USER'S MANUAL for my SONY VAIO PCG-K315S.

The manual for the PCG-K series is found here:
The specifics of the K315S model don't appear to be anything but minor variations of each other (such as more ram, different hard drive, or larger/smaller screens) so this manual should cover all the basic functions of the laptop.
Since this appears to be a laptop made for European markets you can use this website to find drivers and other documentation:
You will need to enter your serial number off the labal on the bottom of the machine.
Hope this helps!
