Sure , you can
but did you look at HP first, no.?
the drivers are all there.
my guess you used MS media and not HP media
and thus the missing drivers.
but with Ethernet lan chip dead, that kills MS PnP driver support dead. Lan = local area network. Ethernet.

oops HP never sold this PC with W7 ever.
so no drivers there. due to that fact.
just vista! my guess XP dont run there either with only VISTA support.

so that means you get to find them the hard way, if at all.
first is LAN. once that works, w7 comes alive, with PnP magic
plug and play.

OMG this dog used the Nforce chip set.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK-55 / 1.8 GHz
10/100 Ethernet (slow) seems its REALTEK

the HP parts surfer says:
System board (motherboard) for Pavilion dv6000 series - Full-featured (UMA) with integrated Realtek (RT8201CL) NIC


see that. that is a realtek chip.
This company is infamous for not supporting newer OS.

links 2:
seem they Realtek ended support on this chip, now.
and ended at VISTA.
so going w7 is hard, if the VISTA driver does not work
good luck finding it, I could not.
I would buy NIC, USB dongle and use that, w7 certified.
sure would.
or use the wifi only, the 4 drivers on on the HP page but are
for VISTA , they can be loaded in compatibility mode, ask.

last GPU
NVIDIA GeForce 7150M

go to and get your drive.
its there, i promise.

Can sony vaio VGN-FS742/W run windows 7?


Yes the Sony should run Win 7 although its designed for XP. For Win 7 to run properly you will need to max out the memory to 2GB.
I have installed Win 7 on plenty of older laptops without any problems. You won't be able to use the aero glass features (see through taskbar and window borders) as the graphics chipset doesn't support that feature but everything should work well once you have enough memory installed.

Probably because you have a SATA Hard Drive. If you want to install WIN XP, you may need to change your hard drive settings. For this go to the BIOS and change to Compatible Mode or IDE or Non SATA. The Reasons that WIN 7 install with no problems is because WIN 7 has already builtIn SATA drivers on it
