Manual for Sony VAIO Laptop PCG-8G1M?

  Roadgiant 16:20 15 Nov 2006

I have very kindly been given a Sony VAIO laptop for my son, It is has PCG-8G1M on the underside of it and I am trying to get a manual for it.
I believe the Laptop was purchased origanally in Europe, it has a Pentium 4 2.4GHz proccessor and 512mb of ram.
I have tried the VAIO-Link user manuals site with no success none of the numbers seem to tally up with this laptop.
Any one any suggestions, thanks in advance RG

The Sony site states.

Note: In some cases the model code number of a VAIO can be different from the chassis code number shown on the bottom or on the rear of the unit. In case of doubt or if your model is not mentioned in above dropdown boxes, use the following link: (I cannot find my VAIO model...)

This link is not working at the moment, have you tried to email Sony to see if they may be able to give you the corrct model number for the Manual.

Yes I couldn't get the link to work either, what I'll do as you suggest is e-mail Sony for the correct model no.
In the meantime I'll leave the thread open for a couple of days until hopefully I get an answer through Sony or from here.
Thanks RG
