Sony Vaio VPCS132GX new hard drive Windows 7

Last response: in Laptop General Discussion

I just purchased a Sony Vaio VPCS132GX with the hard drive removed/gone. I installed a new hard drive and installed Windows 7 home edition from an OEM disk.

There are 52 up-dates and drivers left to install to allow Windows recognize the various hardware and I was wondering if there was a "specific order in which to install them?"
And, will it work?
Maybe I'm doing this wrong, I haven't done anything like this in 30 years.
I have down-loaded all of the files which are in an .exe format.
They are from the http://sonyvaiodriver.com/sony-vaio-vpcs132gx-windows-7...
site.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated......and Thank you
Sorry, but here they are:

I would caution you against running those .exe files you downloaded. Those aren't drivers provided directly from the manufacturer, and very well might have viruses or outdated drivers.

Here is the official website for your Vaio: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=VPCS132...

You can see the available drivers to download from the page above. It doesn't really matter which drivers you install first, though the network drivers would be an obvious choice for starters. Doing it one-by-one from the supported site might not be as quick as one big .exe file, but you'll be sure that it is legitimate.
