Hi there flash86
From the screenshot i can see that you already have your wireless adapter installed.
You can look at the wireless network controller properties in your control panel.
Right click on the wireless network controller and click search for available network then tries to connect.
Supposely if you right click on your wireless adapter properties in your device manager it should tells you that the device is working properly.

From what i can see here is that you haven't install the driver for your VGA, your mobo chipset, your PCI devices, your web camera 2.0 and your HDD controller.
You should able to install those driver that comes with the Sony Vaio device driver CD. If you do not have it, you have to download the driver from Sony Vaio official website.
