Issues hindering performance of network controller in Sony VAIO Y Series
There are few issues that result in the low performance of network controllers in Sony VAIO Y Series. The most important reason is the installation of incorrect drivers. Furthermore, malware and other viruses are affecting system performance. Last but not the least, compatibility can also become a major issue.
One of the primary reasons for the low performance of network controller in Sony VAIO Y Series are the drivers whose compatibility is not up to that level so that it can sustain all the attached hardwares and computers. Therefore a check is needed to verify why the drivers are not compatible enough to communicate with other devices and the reason behind this is old versions of drivers. Even though, the users install all the required drivers from the official websites it might be possible that the drivers uploaded on their website are not the upgraded one. So, it might happen that even after the installation, drivers do not work properly. Second most important reason is virus and malware attack inside the operating system. These viruses are automatic in nature. Whenever, Internet is connected on the machine, these viruses and malwares get downloaded and installed by themselves and hence; start harming the drivers.
