    My Sony VAIO (SR290) doesn't have Windows 8 drivers either, but I was able to get everything working using the Sony Windows 7 drivers for my notebook.

    I chose Windows 7 compatibility mode and ran each one as "Administrator" (see attached pic).

    Thank you for the reply. Does your FN keys work properly?

    My Fn keys for volume, screen brightness, zoom in/out work fine. I haven't hooked the notebook up to an external monitor to see if that Fn key works.

    I have installed many drivers (maby all) from the sony website for windows 7 (as you advised in post #2) but my FK for screen brightness and zoom in/out don't work... Can you tell me which one to install...or maybe I should install them in specific order?
