Sony Spec sheet: T7250 CPU GM965 Chipset
No drivers load except video
Looked up T7250 on Intel website; Their info specs this processor to a
945GME Chipset, but the only drivers they offer are for the graphics.
Here's what I know so far;
The Intel 965 Chipset Drivers load: ICH8 Couldn't tell if anything else
The 965 Graphics loads and works
The ethernet contoller is a Realtek RTL8101E and must be forced,
got driver from Realtek Website
I'm now hunting down the WiFi Driver. Spec sheet says;Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN
Also looking for "Mass Storage" device. I think its the Card reader
Great Site; Lucky I found you
The "Mass Storage device was a TI Card Reader"PCIxx12 Integrated FlashMedia Controller"; Got the driver from the Lenovo Group Site.
Wireless was at the intel Site PRO/Wireless 4965AGN
yes that ibm driver for the texas Card Reader"PCIxx12 will work up to a point.
if you have a quick skip over the sony post you will see we had problems with that card reader before.
best driver you can get for it come from windows update so if you now have it installed update the driver from device manager while your online and it should download the microsoft driver which works alot better.
if the intel INF file installed the ICH8 drivers it installed all the rest for agp, pci ,support e.t.c
well done on the wifi i would have done the same thing and pointed you to intels site for the driver.
Thanks Dave, I'll do the upgrade on the reader shortly.
My last hurdle was the integrated camera.
Found the driver here;http://www.versiontracker.com/php/dlpage.php?id=137968&db=win&pid=172885&kind=&lnk=ftp%3A%2F%2Fftp.vaio-link.com%2Fpub%2FOS%2FXPDowngrade%2FBX4%2FDrivers%2F12_Camera.zip
Had to run the install twice but its working ok.
Installs MS "Movie Maker" Seems somewhat rudimentary, but it works.
Thanks again for all the help
Spoke too soon!
Some of the launch buttons above the KB don't work.
Specifically; Capture ; AV Mode
Sound-on/off & Display on/off ; Work
Do you know if these are soft keys or are they controlled by a Sony program?
