I have a Sony Vaio FX 301 which I have bought second hand. The laptop has option to display the screen on a TV which I would like to do. The problem is that the laptop has windows XP on the laptop and there are no drivers on the Sony website at all. I would like to know if anyone knows when I can get any graphics card drivers for this laptop.
Although there are laptop drivers do come with windows xp there are no TV out options. I have also checked the ATI website that says to contact the laptop manufacture.
The graphics card is an ATI Rage Mobility and it 8mb.
I have a Sony Vaio FX 405 with an ATI Rage Mobility M1 AGP with 8MB. If you email me your address I'll burn the driver to CD and send it to you. Please note however that it may totally trash your system.
I just remembered that I downloaded it from Sonys site because it was an upgrade. I also remembered that they don't have the original drivers as supplied with the laptops available but their support although improved is atrocious. Unfortunately I can't remember the location of their site and haven't favorited it but it was a special Vaio area of the site.
You need to register and will be asked to supply the serial number. What you actually need to do is put the model number in the first box and the serial number in the second one. These will hopefully be found on a sticker on the underside. If not then look in the start, programs menu for Vaio System Information and it will also be shown there.
After that you can try to track down your model number in the support area.
