Ok first thing is to make sure you have downloaded and installed the mainboard or INF or bios drivers. This lets the operating sytem ie vista be able to identify what it is finding. Other wise you see unknown device. After installing that you just need to run the drivers for the missing devices. Windows has done pretty well since XP for identifying and getting most things to run but you should consider downloading and getting the Sony drivers and using those. You can just run them and they will either replace the vista versions or stop if they find they are newer etc. So no harm. sometimes you pick up a few more controls and such. Usually the oem drivers are the only things that get either network or sound to work.

To get the drivers go to the sony website and click on the support tab. www.sony.com Then select your location so you are dealing with a local computer (quicker downloads). Next you wil have to identify you model which is a vaio (under mobile on some sites) then vgn and then the cd125j/w. You can also search for that on the sony site an go direct to the support page. Next just select your operating system ie Vista 32 or 64 then do to downloads and start downloading. This is a good excuse to make a space and get all of the drivers. If you choose to get only the keyboard, button and function drivers then you could just save to your desktop and run them after. Just run each one and then reboot if required and then go into the setup if you want to customize them The setup will either be under control panel or show up as an icon near the clock (right click then properties or open).

This will only take a few minutes to download and then install and then you will be up and running. Sony sometimes combines drivers so the descriptions are a good thing to read before downloading.

Hi gawaynelcy ,

As you have installed the Windows 7 Operating System in the Computer, it is required to re-install the Drivers and Software in the Computer to fix this issue. Installling the following files in the in the given order should fix the issue.

I have sony vaio but the av mode is not working and i have VGN-CS215J


Hi.
According to the information online, the issue might be due to the VAIO Launcher Application.
The VAIO Launcher Application is responsible for the functionality of the AV Mode keys.
Hence, it would be better to re-install the VAIO Launcher Application.
It is also recommended to install the Sony Shared Library before installing the VAIO Launcher Application.
I have mentioned all the links from which you can download the Sony Shared Library and the VAIO Launcher Application:
Sony Shared Library:

VAIO Launcher Application:
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCS215JW&upd_id=4403&os_id=34
Please click on the above links to download the Sony Shared Library and the VAIO Launcher Application.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

Try installing the Camera Driver for the Windows Vista Operating System and this should work.
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCR510E&upd_id=3586&os_id=28
Download Superweb camera software to use camera.

Function keys may not work under Windows 7 Operating System. However, only in few cases, you can update the Video Driver, install the Sony Notebook Utilities, VAIO® Event Service Update to resolve the issue.

Here is the Driver link:

click on see all files and download and install the Drivers for the Windows 7.

I installed windows 7 and now my function keys don't work


You need to install the drivers, windows does not recognize these additional buttons until the proper drivers are loaded. Depending on manufacturer windows 7 drivers may or may not be available. Microsoft did something smart with windows 7 by allowing you to use windows vista drivers in windows 7. So if there are no win 7 drivers just download and install the vista drivers. Good luck!
