I suggest you reinstall the Original Drivers and Applications for SVE1512 Series (Windows 8 64-Bit).  You can download it from


Also, we kindly recommend visiting our Sony Global Web site for information on contacting the Sony Support Center in your region at

Hi ujwalv,


Welcome to Sony Community! Most of the time re-installing the original driver fixes the issue on the laptop, it helps refresh the driver installed on the computer to communicate easily to the hardware. So the suggested fix that BrianP put here could fix the issue.


I hope that answers your questions.
