double click VAIO folder

Hi there, the easiest way to do this, if you are using XP, stick the XP disk in, boot from disk, follow the options untill you get to repair windows, simply do this and it will install all the drivers again.
if not, you can go to the IBM webstie www.ibm.com then go to drivers and software, type in the drivers you are missing, then download them, make you sure you download the correct model tho, that should work.
thanks,
Luke
