I've been handed a Sony Vaio about 3 years old, with the model number PCG-6H8P, and I need the drivers for it.

According to Sony, the laptop doesn't exist. According to Google, the laptop doesn't exist. It was purchased in Australia, and I can guarantee that the laptop exists.

Any ideas on where I can get more information for it? I've been doing this for years and I've never run across anything like it.

(p.s. I've already tried all my favourite driver-updater software, and all they could recognise was the wifi driver)

I believe this also goes by the model number VGN-S58GP. You should be able to find drivers for that model without any problems and they should work just fine.

Looks like they're going to work! Thanks! How on earth did you know about the compatible product numbers though? – Mark Henderson Feb 20 '10 at 23:04
    
Wohoo - they all worked :D You made my week - and it's only 10am on Sunday! – Mark Henderson Feb 20 '10 at 23:20

I've had similar experiences, except with a laptop brought back from Japan. If you need drivers for the devices I would search for the hardware IDs on Google and get the driver packages from there.

You may also want to contact Sony Support.

I already tried that :( I've wasted hours on this already - most of the hardware is sony-specific without generic drivers – Mark Henderson Feb 20 '10 at 22:54
