You would first want to make sure that you can obtain the correct drivers for the laptop. Once you have found them, then you could proceed by doing a clean install of the XP Operating System. If you have never done this before, you may want to enlist the assistance of someone that is familiar with this process.

I am using windows home premiun os.my gainward usb sound card driver supports my pc which is running windows xp but doesnt support my laptop which is running windows 7.


Desktop and laptop does not support all the hardware and software components. Software that you run on xp may not work on your laptop OS win 7 because win 7 supports at 64 bit processing bits and xp may have 32 bit. Now let me talk about hardware.Hardware is made for some specific motherboard and it can only be performed by its specific hardware devices. Thanks for using FixYa.

Laptop: Sony Vaio Serial Tag: C3LRMD7Q Model: PCG7133L Need information for recovery disks for the foremention laptop. The OS is Windows VISTA Home Premiun.


Hi,

The VAIO Model VGN-NR498E/S is shipped with Recovery partition in the hard drive. It is required to create the recovery discs as soon as you get the notebook. Using either recovery discs or the recovery center you can reinstall the preinstalled OS in the computer. But, it depends if you has changed the preinstalled OS, the recovery partition will be erased and no longer be accessible.

However, in your case, if you not made any changes to the preinstalled OS, restart the computer and press and hold the F10 key. this will launch the recovery tools. On the next screen, press Enter key. Then you will be able to view options such as "Restore C Drive", "System Restore" etc. There select "Restore C Drive" to reinstall the preinstalled Vista OS in the Computer.

If you have changed the preinstalled OS in the computer, then it is requires to purchase the recovery discs from Sony's parts center:

https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/productSearch.do?searchOperation=partSearch&searchText=Y8318272A&sessionId=pfBoWO6gh7vj_fseXl4oiMI

The above part is no longer available with them However, you can use the part #Y8318272A to search for the recovery discs with online retailers and others.

Thanks!!!!

Vista & xp service pack2 sinultaneously.


Not both. If you have the Vista recovery, go ahead and load it first, then load the XP by creating a new partition on your harddrive. Now you have a dual boot machine, and will need the XP device drivers. Not sure if you have them or not, so here is a place to get them.
