HELP: Installing english WinXP on Japanese VAIO Laptop
A friend sent me a VAIO notebook (PCG-U1), and I'm trying to convert it to english.
I formatted and installed an English version of windows xp and everything seems to work right off the installation (didnt ask me for any driver except the video)
However, i am faced with ONE HUGE DILEMA.. the Fn hotkeys and the navigation scroller thing isnt working at all.
i spent about 2 days going through the sony websites (including the japanese ones-boy that was painful)..
I installed the Jog Dial Navigator, and the Hotkeys.exe file, etc etc.. but nothing seems to work.. it seems that they are UTILITIES, and the actual hardware drivers are what i need..
I can't find them anywhere.. but did notice that the RECOVERY CDs of these VAIOs deploys with them all the necessary drivers.. but i can't seem to find a way to extract them off the recovery cds, nor find them online for download and manual installation..
I really hope you guys can help..
