    Just did a clean install on the SVS131290X and installed drivers. My system runs a lot better, however some of my Fn (function) keys don't work. Particularly the Touchpad toggle (F1), Screen change (F7), Zooming (F9 and F10), and Sleep (F12) buttons don't work. The touchpad toggle button in the notification area (system tray) also doesn't work although it is present, it will only change icons but not do anything. Can anyone guide me in a direction to fix this? I will say this time I for some reason decided to install everything in no order, but I would I like to find a way that didn't require me to uninstall everything and start from scratch.

    Edit: Never mind, I found what I was missing. I just installed "Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device Driver 8.0.2.3 - SODOTH-00264792-0042.EXE", followed by the Sony Shared Library, and now everything works!

    I'd to share the steps I took to install the drivers on my SVS13 (should work on SVS15 too). A lot of this comes from wanderjahr's post, thank him.


    1) After Windows 8.1 finishes installing, install all available Windows updates, including certain optional software. This is includes printers, graphics drivers, bug fixes, etc. Even though not all drivers will be installed, it is worth it because the drivers that are found are usually the latest version available for your system.
    2) Install everything in this order (I don't think it actually matters however). Let NVIDIA website detect a driver instead of the VAIO site to get the latest. Control center has to be installed twice (once for each version) for the update to work.

    1. Synaptics Driver 16.2.16.3 - EP0000278715.exe
    Here is an uninstaller if you need to remove
    other versions: Synaptics Uninstaller 1.0.0.0 - SPDOTH-80276292-0080.EXE
    2. Install latest NVIDIA Driver with Option 2:
    Use Internet Explorer for this as it is the only browser that can be detected
    3. Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller 8.34.617.2014 - REDETH-P0322547-1102.EXE
    4. Realtek PCIE CardReader Update 6.2.9600.28145 - REDMCC-P0318068-1102.EXE
    5. Realtek High Def Audio Driver 6.0.1.6570 - REDAUD-00265998-0042.EXE
    6. Sony Audio Driver Registry Patch 20120308 - REDAUD-00266876-0042.EXE
    7. Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device Driver 8.0.2.3 - SODOTH-00264792-0042.EXE
    8. Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device Patch 1.0.0 - SODFEP-P0313012-1102.EXE
    9. Sony Shared Library 5.10.0.12150 - SOASSL-00264711-0042.EXE
    10. Vaio Control Center 6.0.5.10150 - EP0000278194.exe
    11. Vaio Control Center Update 6.0.20.09270/6.0.19.09270/6.1.12.09270/6.2.11.09270/6.3.6.09270 - SOAVCC-P0310299-1100.EXE
    12. Sony Wireless State Device Driver 1.0.0.6110 - SODSWS-00269693-0082.EXE


    For me, I excluded 1, 3, 6-9 in wanderjahr's post, and yet everything worked. They may have been installed in Windows update.
