Hi,

Bit of a novice here, cant seem to locate a updated driver for my 5400m.  I have a Sony Vaio laptop and there is no Win 8 driver on the sony website.

 

To be more specific, my son plays minecraft and everytime he loads the game it says it needs and updated driver.

 

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately you cannot update your drivers from AMD. AMD only offers 'generic' drivers which will not work correctly with the Sony custom drivers, read here ..so if Sony supports Windows 8 for your version laptop, then they will have drivers for it. Not all laptops are Win8 supported and should use the OS it was designed for. There is a Sony Viao laptop forum where you may get some ideas/help.
