    You could also delete them. No need to keep anything.

    It's not broken the archive is packed using WinRAR5.

    This has something to do with the Sony Software. Don't install the latest version.

    It has nothing to do in which order you install the drivers. All drivers linked here are working fine. The problem is the software which comes from Sony and you really should use the latest versions mentioned in this thread.

    Why not? Every Sony specific driver mentioned here is for every Sony model out there.

    Fantastic guide. Only issue I have encountered is that my fan is running at 100%. I just replaced my old fan as it was rattling. My question is I am trying to update SFEP version from 8.0.2.4 to 8.0.2.5 and it appears to install correctly but when I check my version after rebooting it still says 8.0.2.4. Is there any way to force the removal of version 8.0.2.4 and then install 8.0.2.5?

    Following up, I still have the fan running at 100%. I have upgraded the following components to the following current versions and still no joy:

    Sony Shared Library: 6.2.0.07020

    SFEP: 8.0.2.5 (had to unpack and manual install to upgrade from 8.0.2.4)

    Sony Vaio Control Centre (SVCC): 6.4.6.03190

    Intel(R) Smart Connect Technology Device: 1.0.8.0

    Intel(R) Management Engine Interface: 11.0.0.1160 (28/07/2015)

    Intel Collaborative Processor Performance Control (CPPC): 1.0.0.1018 (4/09/14)

    ME Firmware Update: v9.5.55.1948 (applied with FWUpdLcl.exe from dos prompt[admin])

    Intel(R) 8 Series LPC Controller (Premium SKU): 10.1.1.14 (26/01/2016)
    Intel(R) 8 Series PCI Express Root Port - 9C14: 10.1.1.14 (26/01/2016)


    Any ideas?

    All sorted. Had a faulty replacement FAN - All drivers as per above work perfectly.

    Only difference is I upgrade the Sony Shred Library to 6.3.0.05080 (via vaio japan website downloads)

    I have done a clean install on a SVE1711 as the update completely ruined networking. The annoying thing is though that my Fn keys don't work with a clean install while they do after an update....I also can't choose a power plan besides the standard one (you know, the choice between silent, balanced and performance). Anyone got an idea?

    Hi! About the FN keys, have you installed:
    • Sony Firmware Extension Parser (SFEP)
    • Sony Shared Library (SSL)
    • Sony Vaio Control Center (SVCC)
    ?

    Yes, all from I tried to install some other drivers and now I got the Fn key working except for the screen brightness. Also tried to install newer drivers from Pro 13 (location utility, power management) but the installer won't start. I'm not sure what other model to use for newer drivers. With my Z installing Notebook Utilities but I haven't found that for this laptop.

    Vaio Event Service is the one that solves the function key issue, except for screen brightness. You should be able to adjust it using the windows 10 charm and settings.
    That's what most people do.

    Yeah I already installed that. I found out that it is relatively easy to change the brightness by clicking on the battery icon in the taskbar. That should work even for my parents in law who will be using a computer for the first time in their live :D Thanks guys.
