If you installed Windows 7 on your computer, then Windows 7 may not have soundboard drivers. In this case, you can do two things: First, visit Windows update. If you are lucky, you can find Windows 7 drivers there.

If Windows update does not have drivers for your sound board, then you must learn the make and model of the sound chipset and visit the chipmaker web site to find the drivers there.

Example: If your sound chipset is VIA 1828S, then you can find the drivers at VIA. If your sound chip is from Realtek, then learn the model designation and look for the drivers at Realtek web site.

I hope this clarifies.

Contact Sony for the best help. If you can't find the drivers after a search we are not likely to either.

I hope you're not trying to run Win7 with just 512MB RAM? 1GB is the minimum for the 32-bit edition, 2GB is the minimum for 64-bit. Unfortunately, the max your laptop can handle is 1GB, so make sure to get the 32-bit version. Or better yet, go back to XP. I think you're making a big mistake trying to run Win7 on that machine.

Here's the Win7 requirements: http://windows.microsoft.com/system...

Here's your laptop specs: http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/pr...

The audio chip is the Yamaha YMF753-S. Good luck finding the drivers.

This site claims that it has all the Win 7 drivers for your notebook but requests money for it.

I have no info about the site. Whatever you decide to do is at your own risk.

All other sites I found for your notebook are in Japanese language which I do not understand.

If you have the recovery disks, you can go back with everything working right. If you do not have the recovery disks, you have to contact Sony support for the disks. You may have to pay for them, though.

Once you put your hands on the recovery disks, then you must follow the instructions in the Sony documentation to start the recovery process. Sony support should also tell you how.

Newer notebooks have recovery partition on the hard disk rather than recovery disks. If you have the recovery partition and have not damaged it during the Win 7 install process, that is fine.

This time you must learn how to start recovery process from the recovery partition on the hard disk.

Just another hint to try (unless you have already gone back to XP)

Microsoft seem to keep a lot of legacy drivers available on windows update. It might be worthwhile checking for updates and checking the "Recommended" section, where most driver updates are kept. (Control Panel>Windows Update)

That is where I have found drivers for my old motherboards (sorry cant remember EXACT details) sound drivers, where the manufacturer had not provided a windows 7 driver.

I already advised him to visit Windows update. I do not know if he did that, though.
