If I remember correctly, my VAIO has links to a VAIO help site on the start menu. I know it has the Tech support links there, but I'm not 100% sure about a VAIO sepcific one, but it's worth a look - try there as well.

Maybe you could *cough* use Arch Linux *cough*

This is a subliminal message telling you to use the best distro on the planet: Arch Linux
