    anyone own one of these, or more important, the drivers / recovery discs.

    I've been told that the only support is japanese. I've searched the lot of google, on several different searches to try and find these drivers. Currently have problems with wireless support and multimedia, along with a network connection.

    Please, any help is appreciated, and money will be paid for copies of recovery discs.

    Hi, I also have a Sharp PC-MV1214 that I would like drivers for.
    I know what drivers I need because a wrote them down from device manager before I re-installed windows XP. I may have to locate each driver individually from each manufacturer if I can't get the drivers from Sharp.
    I contacted Sharp UK who said that they have not sold Laptops in the UK for a number of years and do not support the PC-MV1214. They said that they were imported for sale by Dixons / Currys / PC World and are supported by them via www.pcservicecall.co.uk. I have been to there website and although they list the laptop on their website, they do not have any drivers for it. I phoned them and they said to phone Sharp UK.
    If you have any luck getting drivers or recovery CD's, please let me know and I will do the same.
    Regards,
    FunkyMonkey

    I have this laptop, and all the restore disks.

    Let me know if you still want them and I will make backups.

    Hi Mate,

    I have problems in getting the wireless working for this Sharp laptop after a reinstallation of Windows XP (not a restore). Seems Windows doesn't detect the wireless hardware, so it don't know what driver should be installed. So would you please send me the wireless driver to me: clark_lu AT hotmail.com

    Cheers

    Wireless (http://www.sharpsystems.com/kb/PC/PCMV12W/xpdriver/WLAN.zip)

    Try these they might work, I got these from an expert from another forum...
    I have a feeling the Actius MV12 is diff to the MV1214.
    Mind you the Audio drivers don't even have Win2k or Win XP..

    Great job and you are man! Cannot wait to see how WLAN works on my friends laptop. :D

    But all in all, I've been told not to buy any Jap's laptops due to this or that kind of intended 'incompatibilities'. :mad:

    Just as a quick finale
    Official Sharp reply :
    Thank you for your recent message. All needed drivers are on the
    recovery
    CD that comes with the PC. They are usually contained on the last disk.
    Many
    of the individual files are available through "support" and then
    "knowledgebase" at www.sharpsystems.com. More will be added in the
    future.
