Learn how to install Windows® 7 on Sony® VAIO laptops
Sony VAIO laptops are extremely popular over the world. They come with the latest series of processors and quality internal components that produce excellent performance when installed with any Operating System. Sony VAIO laptops are totally compatible with Windows 7 OS. Even though basic drivers would come preloaded with the OS, the high performance components such as graphics cards, video cards etc require special drivers that would have to be installed on the system separately. Drivers act as the translators between the Operating System and the hardware components. Drivers are essential for the components to understand the commands given by the Operating System and without drivers, even the OS would not be able to make out the results produced by the hardware. Windows 7 drivers for Sony VAIO laptop come in the form of self extracting files that can be easily installed on the system. Without correct and proper drivers, the functioning of the system would be limited, which is why Sony VAIO laptop users are recommended to download and install the correct drivers at the time of installation of the OS itself.
