    I got the Sony Vaio Pro 13 from my Dad with only 350 hours of use....the control center that is installed is an older version 6.2.12.13060, and the options you mentioned that were missing are available here. I am selling the laptop and plan on a clean install of windows 10....I will look into where to find the best shared library and control center version.
    Vaio Care is not installed at the moment.

    Hi everyone, SVP owner since August 2013 here, got 2 questions for you all.

    I have the non-touch model (SVP1321C5E) and the screen was busted so I ordered a new one on aliexpress. Decided it'd be cool to get the touchscreen because why not. Installation went fine, looks great, screen works great. Only problem is touch doesn't work.
    Anyone have experience with putting a touchscreen on any of the non-touch models? The device seems to register fine in device manager as an HID-compliant touch screen and Windows tells me it has "Full Windows touch support", but it simply doesn't do anything when I touch the screen.

    I'd download the touch screen driver for my model but that brings me to the next issue...

    There are no Windows 10 drivers or software downloads for the SVP1321C5E. Meaning I don't have Vaio Care, Control Center, or access to specific drivers that one might need in a case such as this.

    If anyone has any experience with either of these matters, I'd greatly appreciate some help!

    Got a Sony Vaio Pro 13 21C5E too.
    Hope to have it delivered soon. How do you know know what SSD to get? (there seems to be PCIe m.2 and Sata m2 - not entirely sure what version this supports?)

    Hi all,

    As I saw, some people replace 7260n to 8260ac.
    Thanks for that advice, I choose to replace it by the latest 8265ac and it works well.
    Any other advices ?

    Many thanks,

    I bought one off ebay and it says
    Details about OEM Sony VAIO SVP13 Series 13 DC DC-IN Power Jack Harness Cable 364-0001-1282_A

    Now you might not actually need t replace the jack. If its torn off, ask electrician to solder it. If its loose, you can always ask for help in pushing out metal parts of your charger plug, so it tightens. Just ask a local electrician for help first

    Get a new one off ebay with heatsink. Quite cheap, and easy to replace
