Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook

Open Question

I have a Sony VGN-N130G 15.4" screen that had Windows XP Professional. I tried installing Windows 7 Ultimate on it and now my keyboard on the laptop will not work. I have connected an external keyboard through the USB port, which is how I am typing this. Before I did the Windows 7 intall, the keyboard was working fine with Windows XP. I tried installing a new driver -- went into dvice manager and clicked on the PS/2 Keyboard Properties and then clicked on "Update Driver". After this Sony laptop keyboard still will not work! I wanted to go back to Windows XP, but now I cannot find the original DVD for XP Professional. What can I do to make my laptop work again??? Is there somewhere I can get a copy of Windows XP Professional? Is there something I can do to make the keyboard work with Windows & Ultimate. HELP!
