Hi all,

I am not sure if this is the right place for my question, but I can't contact Sony because it seems that this model somehow doesn't exist. I purchased notebook in Bosnia 2 months ago and I am experiencing some issues with WLAN connection, so I wanted to download and install latest drivers, but I can't find any drivers for SVF152A29M. When I goggled this model number I found few posts regarding this notebook, but it is not listed on any official Sony website. I tried all ex Yugoslav countries, as well as USA, UK, Germany... still nothing. Is there any way I can find out how is this possible?

Thanks in advance...

You have to find a "real" model number under the battery cover. I had the same issue and found the model number when ejected the battery. In my case it is SVF1521B1EW, where the "W" on the end of code is the color of the NTB and is not important.

Thanks for the info Mikra, you are right. I managed to find "real" model number when I removed batery one month ago, but it seems that my WLAN card is not working properly. Now, when I am using USB-WLAN reciever, there is not a single issue anymore.

Best regards!

Hello, if you got that model number from the back of your laptop, that's the wrong one.

Take your batery out and look for something like "Product name: SVF1521..."

I got a laptop Sony VAIO SVF152A29M, which really is a SVF1521B1EW
