Most of the time, when you receive your new Sony VAIO X Series, the drivers for the preinstalled hardware devices are already updated and do not need updating as yet. If they need updating, you can use the automatic software updates on your Sony VAIO X Series through the OS that you are using. You need to access Internet or stay connected to the Internet to get upgates. If you want to update one specific driver, you can use device manager for this task. Click on start and type in 'Device Manager'. Click on the program, and then right click on the device for which you want to install new drivers. You can either choose to manually search for drivers on your computer or on a disk or you can find the right drivers online. You can go to the manufacturer’s website (choose from either the device provider or at the Sony website).
