Windows® XP Drivers in Sony® VAIO RS Series desktops
Drivers could be best explained as interpreters between the operating system and the hardware. They help the hardware understand the needs of the operating system perform accordingly. Drivers are required by all operating systems including Windows XP. Your Sony VAIO RS Series Desktops will run exceptionally well on Windows XP. This is because the high quality components used within the system are more than capable of taking the load of even the latest operating systems. Basic drivers come with the installation disk of Windows XP. For your Sony VAIO RS Series machine to perform at peak levels, high performance drivers will have to be externally installed at the same time as the installation of operating system. Your Sony VAIO RS Series will require high performance drivers such as DVD drivers, graphics drivers, and wireless LAN drivers.
