    As far as I know it is just the false rumor that there is no such support for the Sony Vaio VGN-FW351J laptop drivers as I have downloaded it just weeks back. So I would tell you that dont believe to all this rumors they are just false.

    I want to know that as you have the clean install of the windows 7 in to your Sony Vaio VGN-FW351J laptop, but before I help you with the procedure I want to know what is the config of the laptop, as you have mentioned the series of the laptop but would like to know from you as you might have done any of the upgrade in to your laptop. So rather than searching for the config on the Google, I would like to know about the config from you.

    As going through your config I must say that you can easily install the windows 7 into your laptop and I dont think so installing the window 7 64 bit would be a issue.

    According to me if you have downloaded the correct drivers then it should get install it correctly without having any issues. But as if you are saying that the Fn functions keys does not work properly then you should try to download the drivers again from the Sony website see that you are downloading the appropriate drivers and same as your laptop series. Because I guess that the functions keys not working can be due to the wrong drivers downloaded and when installed do not show any response. So see that you download the proper function keys drivers for your laptop.
