Question about Sony VAIO VGN-AR730E/B Digital Studio Notebook

1 Answer

Last December a MS update crashed my system (Sony Vaio VGN AR730E). While rebuilding it I lost the software drivers for my built-in Video cam and microphone. The Geek Squad disks provided with the system is built such that I cannot recover these files. What Sony or video cam driver/s can I use to rebuild my drivers correctly?

My warranty ran out and I took my sony vaio vgn-fs745p/h to a computer shop because the harddrive crashed and they installed a new harddrive and I lost my factory sony software and none of my keyboard...


The factory software will be available in the manufacturer's website. Look for support website for the laptops and look for drivers and downloads and download the most important being Chipset , wireless and ethernet drivers, audio and video.

You will also have an option to download the Burning software depending upon the manufacturer.
