It because driver is missing (Realtek AC97), Re-installing the driver will resolve the issue. You can use the Driver CD that came with the computer or alternately you can download from Sony Support website
here is the link for online driver

Good Luck

    Bigger hard drive

    I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

    If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.
