Issues with the Graphics Driver in the Sony VAIO Y Series
The Sony VAIO Y Series laptops are designed for portability. You can work and play with around nine hours of battery life. The most amazing feature of Sony laptops is the quality of display. The Sony VAIO Y series laptops are manufactured with a 13.3 inch LCD display. Situations may arise when you will need to install or re-install the graphics driver in your notebook. Here are some things to keep in mind:-
- Identify the Graphics Card
- Search for Drivers
- Download and Install the Driver
Identify the Graphics Card
The first step to installing the graphics driver is to identify the graphics card that is installed in your notebook. To do this, you can look up the notebook specifications. Alternatively, you can right click on the desktop and select ‘properties’. This will open the ‘display properties’ dialog box. Under the settings tab, you will see that the name of your display controller will be displayed. The current Sony VAIO Y Series notebooks come with an integrated Intel® HD graphics controller.
Search for Drivers
Once you identify your graphics controller, you should search for suitable drivers. During most cases, it would be better for you to leave this process to the operating system. You can go to the device manager and update the display driver from there. Alternatively, you can search for the drivers on the official Sony website. Note that during most times, the official website will offer outdated drivers. Hence, you should always resort to the first option.
Download and Install the Driver
If you have chosen to download and install the driver manually, then you should search the Internet. You will find lots of information about different drivers. Most of the drivers would have already been tried out by different people. So you can learn from their experiences. If you find that a certain driver is said to work well on your Sony VAIO Y Series laptop, then you can download and install it. But this is a difficult task and so it is better to leave this task to people with prior experience.
