First remove all the USB Devices connected to the Computer, go to Device Manager, uninstall all the USB Drivers and restart the Computer. after the restart, the Operating System should reinstall the USB Drivers automatically as the USB Drivers are Operating System generic.
If this does not work, go to Device Manager, right click on the USB Device having Yellow Exclamatory mark and click on Update Device/Driver and select search for the best driver in these location and in the location type C:\Windows\inf and click next.
This should resolve the issue.
If this does not work, you can try performing the System restore where the USB ports are working normally.

Can vgn-fw235j support windows xp


Ahmad, The Computer VGN-FW235J does not support Windows XP Operating System as Drivers for the Windows XP are not available.

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNFW235J

However, if you want to install the Windows XP Operating System in the Computer then you can install it in the Computer but you have to search a lot to get proper Driver for the Computer.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

I want change vista to wind7 but camera wirlees not activ after updat wind7


Windows 7 official release is in Oct. The Windows 7 version you have is probably the Release Candidate version, this is the last Beta version before its offical release. This version does not have drivers for a lot of devices and if you cannot download the driver from Sony WEB site at this stage then you have to wait until it becomes available.
The release Candidate will shut down every hour early next year and will stop working completely in June. You will be forced to buy Windows 7 or go back to XP or Vista.

Need to upgrade Vaio FW235J from Vista to Vista Ultimate


Vista drivers are Vista drivers. As long as you are not doing anything regarding the 32-bit/64-bit line, everything should work fine. The 32-bit Vista driver model doesn't change with the specific flavor of Vista. The same thing with the 64-bit version. So if the drivers work in the 32-bit version of Vista Home Premium, they will also work unchanged in the 32-bit version of Vista Ultimate. And if you are doing an in-place upgrade, you don't need to even try to reinstall the drivers anyway.
