Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FE890 Laptop ?

Thanks in advance for helping me to resolve this win 7 driver issue, I added 4GB from Fry's electronics cheap $25 and upgrad my daughter's Sony VGN-FE890N to Windows 7, cannot get the video driver to install. DL driver from NVidia for win7 64bit but wouldn't install. Any reason why, so far Sony doesn't have any support for this model. Don't get me wrong this is a nice notebook and want to continue using it.


Answers :

If you look at Sony's main site, this particular model is no longer being made or sold. There are a few refurb shops that sell it, but I don't see one in stock anywhere. It looks as though this was a strong 32 bit system originally. Makes me wonder why you chose the 64 bit route.

\015\012Sony will almost definitely not build drivers for a model it no longer makes and sells, as you'll find most manufacturers won't. My only suggestion at this point would be to try a 32 bit upgrade in Win 7 and see if that works.

\015\012Also, a 32 built system will often not recogize even a full 3 gig of ram. You might also try removing the 4 gig of ram and reinstalling your original ram. You didn't say which speed ram you used.
