Original Drivers Package

IMPORTANT NOTE: The package you are about to download contains the drivers that originaly come preinstalled on your unit.
These drivers are automatically reinstalled on your computer if you perform a system recovery.

Furthermore, on most VAIO computers, these drivers can be found on your Hard Disk Drive in the following folder: C:\Drivers or on your Recovery CD.
The drivers included in this package are not updated drivers.
If updated versions of the preinstalled drivers are available for your model, they can be found separately in the Drivers and Updates section of the VAIO web site or via VAIO Update if your computer has this functionality.
Thus, if you are still using the preinstalled Operating System and didn't delete the C:\Drivers folder (for recent models) or still have your Recovery CD's (for older models), you do not need to download this package.

Original Utilities Package

IMPORTANT NOTE: The package you are about to download contains the utilities that originaly come preinstalled on your unit.
These utilities are automatically reinstalled on your computer if you perform a system recovery.

Furthermore, on most VAIO computers, these utilities can be found on your Hard Disk Drive in the following folder: C:\Utils or on your Recovery CD.
The utilities included in this package are not updated versions.
If updated versions of the preinstalled utilities are available for your model, they can be found separately in the Drivers and Updates section of the VAIO web site or via VAIO Update if your computer has this functionality.
Thus, if you are still using the preinstalled Operating System and didn't delete the C:\Utils folder (for recent models) or still have your Recovery CD's (for older models), you do not need to download this package.
