  1. Laptop:
    Sony Vaio
    Model: PCG 71315L
    Processor: Intel Core i3 CPU M370@2.40 Ghz
    Windows 7

    My uncle asked me to reformat his laptop. I basically did a fresh install but now
    upon when I log on I cannot connect to the internet.

    I opened device manager and several drivers seem to be missing.

    .Base System Device
    Ethernet Controller
    Network Controller
    PCI Simple Communications Controller
    Unknown Device

    I don't have much experience so I don't know what to look for and because it can't connect to the internet, I don't know how to make it auto search for its drivers. Can anyone give me a place to start searching for these drivers? I don't even know the manufacturer.

    You should be able to find the drivers you need at Sony's website.
