Install all availabe Windows 7 drivers for your model. Look on your PC manufacturers drivers page for the list.

If there aren't any Windows 7 drivers for some devices, Vista drivers should work.

The most important part is finding the x64 drivers.

Here's the driver page for your Sony laptop. Just select what version of Windows 7 you are running.

And remember...You want the x64 drivers list.

Yes that's about it..

After having a quick glance... All of your drivers should be available under the Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit category.

Oh... and you're welcome... If you have anymore questions feel free to stop by and ask.
