I purchased a Sony Vaio S13 Windows 8 Laptop Model SVS13A290X. Im not very fond of Win 8 so I tried installing Windows 7 with the drivers provided by the Sony Support website but some functions like hotkeys, vaio update, battery drain issues and in general some graphic drivers issues still clutter the experience. I tried numerous reinstalls and different installation orders for each drivers with no success.

Any ideas? Should I borrow drivers from other models? Any easer way to downgrade my Win 8?

software like hotkeys wont work with 8 unless there specifically for 8 and you shouldn't really need them either

battery drain issues - also doubt its any different, read outs might differ sure but overall lifespan of the battery should remain the same under the same use and conditions etc
