    Greetings all,

    I opted to install Windows 8 x64 fresh, and after the reinstall, I'm having an issue isolating a particular driver.

    The hardware ID is ACPI\VEN_SNY&DEV_A008, and presently says "Unknown Device" in Device Manager.

    I've installed all the other missing drivers from Sony's Support Pages, but that last one is evading me.

    Any thoughts/guidance?

    -Justin

    I went through all my devices in device manager until I found a match. It looks like its "Sony wireless state device". I don't see it on the support page.

    That's the Sony CXD5400 GPS device. I compared the devices in shipped OS and found this is missing. Just wonder why Sony don't provide the drivers?!

    Use a program like DriverMax to backup the driver before performing the clean install. Then install the driver from the backup you made.

    Just an FYI, Sony's support page now has the driver that appears to relate to this. It came up on the i7 model's page so make sure you go back and look for your model if its not the same one:
