So what is your question?


Sounds like you need the proper drivers installed. Visit Sony's website and look up the model if you do not have the restore cds.

Vaio wireless lan switch repeatedly restarts windows

Thats sounds like the wrong drivers for the network card. Some models can have different models or brands of cards so you can get the wrong one in there. You should be able to boot up in safe mode (F8) and then go under control panel - system- hardware manager-network adapters. Find the card that is causing the problems highlight and delete it. Then reboot. This takes the card out of the system and it will be detected as a new hardware next startup. Then try another driver.

You might want to go to the Sony website and check under support to see what other drivers you can get to try for your model. There might be 2-3 to try. Usually the oem disks are right but the replacements don't always get things right.

If this were hardware you shouldn't get the bluescreen of death (BSOD). That usually means software or drivers.

No audio device on notebook


Sounds like you indeed have a problem with an audio hardware driver. Presumably the 'Audio Device on High Definition Bus' is the system detecting a device it doesn't have a driver installed for.

First question - was the sound working previously? If so, did you recently install any type of audio software not related to the sound device itself?

Please provide the exact model number of the VAIO notebook and we can point you to the correct driver and try that for starters.

Wireless Network stopped detecting ALL local networks

Hi, Have you installed the driver for your wireless card since you re-formatted?

Right click on my computer and go to properties, select device manager. all of your hardware will be listed there. are there any yellow question marks? these are devices that need drivers.

Your wifi card will probably be called 'network adapter'. go to the sony vaio website and download the right driver for your wifi card
