The best way to fix your PC to run at peak performance is to update your drivers. If your system is slow, unresponsive or crashes often, the problem may be with your drivers. Sometimes, after upgrading to a newer operating system such as Windows 10, problems can occur because your current driver may only work with an older version of Windows. To download and update your Sony drivers manually, follow the instructions below.
Tech Tip: Updating drivers manually requires some computer skills and patience. A faster and easier option is to use the Sony Driver Update Utility to scan your system for free. The utility tells you which specific drivers are out-of-date for all of your devices.
To get the latest Sony driver, including Windows 10 drivers, you can choose from a list of most popular Sony driver updates. Click the download button next to the matching model name. After you complete your download, move on to Step 2.
