    john frederick is completely correct about sony.They are not upgrading video graphics.Nvidia sees you own vaio and it will not download latest video driver.Real bullshit,no doubt.I will never buy sony again for same reason

    I would like to upgrade/purchase my Sony Vaio FZ35G's OS Windows Vista to Windows 7. Any idea where can I get it. FYI, I have downloaded Windows 7 Release Candidate and installed on my system without any troubles and I had used it for 9months and now its gonna expire. I like the Windows 7 OS and wanted to upgrade from my slow Vista. Ur help will be appreciated much.
    Thanks for your help in advance

    Why on earth we can't make a clean installation in the first place!?
    1. Unable to find or run the drivers even if I try to install same windows version comes with the product!
    2. It takes about a day to re-install the operation system from recovery dvd's with all those unnecessary softwares that I will never use; and
    3. it takes another day to clean those unwanted softwares to uninstall.
    I really hate it.
    I bought my vaio 6 months ago and I'm already looking forward to changing it, swear I will never again buy another vaio!!!

    I still could not fix the problems caused by installing windows 7. No memory slots and no webcam. Is Sonny really a partner of Microsoft? My Vaio is a PCG 5L3L and I'm really disappointed with this situation. With the Vista software, it was too slow and now, it does not work properly.

    Here are the drivers that were originally installed on my Sony Vaio VGN-FZ430E for Vista. They are gone when you upgrade to Windows 7 and the Sony web site does not have them. To install go to the device manager and do a driver update, manually select your device, point to the driver directory and select the Camera, in my case it was the VGP-VCC8. The zipped file is at

    I have a VGN-FW I upgraded it with Win 7. It will not work with Mobile Intel 45 express display adapter drivers. Will work with basic driver but win 7 keeps reinstalling the bad drivers. Sony ? Intel ? I am typing this from a MAC which i also use for Win XP when necessary. Never have these upgrade issues.
