Windows 10 on Sony VAIO
Tuesday 06, June 2017   |   Post link
Windows and VAIO

Ever since I first saw a Sony VAIO many years back, I wanted one. Today Sony doesn't even make them any more. Anyway, a lot of us still have these wonderful machines and love their super-light weight and expandability options.

With Windows 10 getting into more and more PCs and laptops everyday it's not a surprise to want to have it running on a Sony VAIO (T-Series) laptop. I tried installing Windows 10 last year on my SVT machine - it did install, but I had a hell of a time getting everything working. The main problem was getting the correct drivers. The following components gave me the most amount of pain:

  • Display driver
  • Bluetooth

Eventually the system did hold up but I still had one unrecognized PCI hardware in device manager. The display drivers also did not seem very stable, brightness and contrast did not work. I never got my bluetooth to connect to my Logitech Bluetooth device. Not good enough - I put back Windows 8 and everything was back to normal.

Just yesterday I wanted to upgrade the SSD and along with it why not try Windows 10 once more? I installed the Jan 2017 Build of windows 10 (fresh install). I then proceeded to install the drivers, all the Windows 8.1 drivers installed fine. Finally I was left with one unidentified PCI device which happened to be the card-reader, installing drivers for this presented me with how a perfect world be like - zero unidentified devices.

What about bluetooth audio? I had to reinstall the bluetooth driver twice and also restart the Logitech bluetooth device and voila - finally the laptop recognized it as an audio device and here I am typing this post and listening to Zombie using bluetooth :).

Key takeways

  • Windows 10 works perfectly on Sony VAIO SVT13113FXS
  • Use the Windows 8.1 drivers from Sony website
