Device drivers are little text files that include instructions for the CPU to interpret and put into action so that the system can utilize the particular piece of hardware that the file corresponds to. If you do not download and properly install the right drivers onto the operating system then the device is inoperable and will never work. You will have to have the right drivers correctly installed on your operating system of your computer so that you are able to operate the device.
All hardware and peripheral devices have drivers that have to be downloaded and installed onto the operating system in order for them to be used. These devices can be a video card, hard disk drive, USB drive or hundreds of other devices that are able to be connected to your system in some sort of way.

It is because every piece of hardware is different from each other, there are a lot of different drivers, as well. This is why it may be challenging to come across the correct driver. For example, each Nikon digital camera needs its own individual driver in order to work.

Downloading the specific Vaio Vgn-S170 driver that you need may be surprisingly hard to do. Read the following list of items you should know before you head out searching for your particular Vaio Vgn-S170 driver.

- Is your OS 64 or 32 bit? (if it is a 64-bit system then it will show up in the Window that opens from right-clicking on "My Computer" or "Computer" and left-clicking on "Properties". If it doesn't say that you are running a 64-bit system then it is safe to say that you are running a 32-version of Windows.)
