emma, I know how to fix it.

insert the downgrade xp disc

click start, my computer, right click ''RECOVERYDISC(E:)" choose explore

double click VAIO folder

double click XP_Downgr...

double click VGN-TZ

the sound and ethernet and others will be installed

is it recommended that this is done right after recovery

but I did it after installing the drivers and applications, and it seems fine.

good luck

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
