Hi just a quick check up from digging deep try this first as it may not be your drivers tbh

In your 'Start' menu search and click on 'Run' and type in services.msc
You'll see a long list called Services (Local), click on the name parameter to have them sorted alphabetically.
Find the one called VAIO Event Service. Double click this and ensure that for Startup Type it says 'automatic', if it does not, change it to 'automatic' and click 'apply'.
Then be sure below that, that the Service Status says 'Started'.
If it does not then change its option to start.

let me know if this helps ?

As the Upgrade link gives you the SONY SHARED LIBRARY and SETTING UTILTY SERIES driver if you upgrade to windows 7.
Whilst the hotkey link gives you the original hotkey drivers.

Your model was discontinued d.w im still searching for a model thats like for like.
