I have a Sony VGN-FZ260E. Now that I've gone from Vista (32bit) to Win7 (64bit), how do I find the 64bit drivers that I need to get the most out of my sys? Anything else I need to keep an eye out for (surprises from going from 32bit to 64bit)?
I appreciate any good info you might have!

caseyrblount welcome. You should have checked beforehand that the drivers are available.
Search your computer manufacturers, the device manufacturers, and the software manufactures sites for drivers.

Many Vista 64bit drivers will work with Win7 so you should be able to use those.

LH,
"You should have checked beforehand that the drivers are available."
--Thanks for the slightly admonishing and wonderfully vague answer! I also should have bought stock of Apple in 2003, bet on "Mine That Bird" in this year's Kentucky Derby, and skipped that breakfast burrito this morning. Such is life.--

ProstheticHead,
Thanks, this is a much better answer. Are you aware of a good internet source or repository that I could dig through? Everything's working fine--I don't need new drivers to fix any issues--this is more of a house cleaning sort of thing.
Thanks!!!
Casey

Well, the Sony Download page has some, but my best guess is these are 32bit drivers, therefore not useful to you.

If you use something like Belarc Advisor to determine the manufacturer of your chipset etc you should be able to download drivers directly form their respective websites.
