Sony Vaio Model PCG5K7P Webcam Utility Wanted

My son has an old Sony Vaio laptop with Vista Home Premium installed which was totally overloaded with every app and junk file possible and kept crashing all the time so i reformatted and clean installed Vista Ultimate x86 as he has lost all recovery disks so the recovery partion is gone as well.
I have managed to get everything working except the webcam and i have searched for hours and found nothing that works and Sony don't even recognize the model number PCG5K7P sold in Australia.
So the big question is does anyone know where to find the utility or a working fix to get it going

The only reference i have is the attached shot in Device Manager which i have downloaded several versions of the net all of which fail to install for whatever reasons, maybe something else is missing?
Thank you for any help.

Is it really safe to download drivers from 2nd party sites? It's not like there's any other option but it's concerning to me at least, specially drivers from manufactures and not Microsoft.

I don't know what "safe" means in regards to driver. I don't know if you have an anti-virus program or malwarebytes installed.

On the other hand, what is the alternative here?

Specialty devices like webcams aren't going to have drivers from Microsoft unless it is a M$ webcam. You have to use manufacturer's drivers. The question is can you trust them from a third party site. Technically a site such as the provided link is a third party site. If SIW2 suggested it then I would trust it however that was almost 3 years ago. Things might have changed since then.

You know, I didn't look at the age of this thread. My last sentence applied to the original problem.
