Re: VAIO UPDATE is not working on Windows 8.1.

Hi cfde19,


How did you update your unit from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1? Did you follow this guide before you update the unit to Windows 8.1? If not, this may be the cause of unresponsive VAIO Update Software. Basically, for this kind of issue we recommend to reset the unit back to Windows 8 using a recovery media dvd. We can try to reinstall Vaio Update, uninstall the current Vaio Update, then download and install. If this doesn't work the best thing to do is to reset back to Windows 8 and follow the guide before updating to Windows 8.1.Hope everything works out!
