You will likely need to find the correct driver on the Sony site for your model of notebook. Many laptop drivers are not the same as drivers for a desktop PC.

Filling in your system specs will help a lot. System Info - See Your System Specs

Maryfy?
I think the one you got form the Vaio site would be the best and latest. As I said Laptops have special drivers to go with the specific hardware.

Well it can be a driver bug (wrong driver version displayed) so if everything works than you're fine I guess...
