Need driver for sony vaio VGN-TZ27GN built in web...


There probably is not a driver specifically for Windows 7.
Usually you will have to use the one for Windows Vista.
Windows 7 is only a glorified version of Vista anyway.

Go here:Drivers
Select the Downloads tab, then select the operating system.
If you have 32 bit Win 7 then select the 32 bit Vista.

If you have home premium then select the same for Vista.

In the next drop down menu select Original Driver.

There is one for Vista called camera module driver

I have checked the specs of your PC notebook, I can see that you can upgrade the OS of your notebook to windows 7, because your PC passed the requirements for the windows 7 OS.

I hope you have a great day.

I have a sony vaio vgn-sz491n. i have loaded windows 7 professional, 64bit onto it. in the device manager, it shows that a driver for a mass storage controller is missing. where can i find this...


Most likely missing a driver for SD/MC card reader
The problem is that Sony doesnt offer drivers for 64-bit windows so the other 32-bit drivers will not be compatible.
You have the options to install the windows versions supported by sony from esupport.sony.com (Vista or XP)
Or try installing windows 7 32-bit and installing the missing drivers from esupport (Vista section) as usually they are compatible.
If the driver is still missing you will need to update the driver from device manager (previously installed from esupport) and then select to browse or select a location, which will be %temp% or what is the same the temp folder for your account C\users\your_user_name\appdata\temp. This folder is usually hidden but it will work if you just type %temp%

Can i change the video card on a vaio VGN-NS240E? I have integrated video but would like to upgrade to something that can handle games. Anyone know how?


I'm sorry. It is not possible to upgrade the Inbuilt Video card. However, the Computer is shipped with the Express Card/54 slot. You can contact your nearest favorite dealer to get the Express Card slot supported Video card and install in the Computer. This improves the Graphic performance.

FROM WHERE CAN I GET WIN.7 DRIVERS FOR SONY VAIO VGN-N250E


As if now windows 7 drivers are not available but you dont have to worry because Basic system functionality should be automatically enabled with the drivers included within the Windows 7 operating system.
However, if one of the drivers that came with the operating system does not work with your system, you can try installing the Windows Vista version of the driver provided by Sony for your model. Many of the Windows Vista drivers are compatible with Windows 7 based on current testing. Make sure you choose the bit version (32-bit or 64-bit) that matches your version of Windows 7.
