  Sony Vaio PCG-505FX......

Anyone know anything about this laptop ?

Is there a source for accessories or restore cd for this machine ?

What is the largest harddrive that this machine will take ?

My machine is running Win98 and I'm looking to upgrade it to Win2k but
that is kinda hard without a cdrom....Has anyone successfully upgraded
their machine ?

The original drivers are here.

Sony does not list win2k drivers for this model. BUT, the neomagic
video driver is part one of the drivers included with win2k.

It might be hard to find a driver for the motion Jpeg decoder... but
it won't be an issue if you don't use motion jpegs. (not many do)

If you have the default 32mb or Ram, i would not recommend doing to
win2k. The max on the machine is 96mb, and the memory is propritary.
(good luck finding any). Even the 96mb max is marginal for win2k.

That machine looks to be pre-crippled, I cannot recommend an OS
