I believe that the model you have is a VGN-TZ17B.

Finding the Windows 7 driver software for this particular model can be done by going to the products webpage by clicking here.

You will then need to select your Operating System and then select Camera. you will be taken to the Camera Driver file to download. Click on the link to download the file and then execute the program and follow the steps to install.

As for the Microphone driver software this is a bit different. There are no MIC drivers listed on the support site for Windows 7. So you can do one of two things.

The first step is to perform a Windows Update. Typically Windows Update will provide you the Realtek drivers, which are what you need for your model. If the Windows Update does not provide you with those drivers, I would suggest trying step 2.

Step 2 would require you to use the Soney product page you cleicked on for the Camera drivers, except this time you want to select Windows Vista and you will be provided with an Audio Driver. Click on the audio driver to donwload and install it folloing the steps.

Though you have Windows 7 currenly installed, the Windows Vista drivers should work fine.

Let us know how it turns out.
