I ran the Windows7 Upgrade Advisor tool from MS and it stated that my graphics card driver in my laptop is not compatiable with Windows 7 . So i tried Sony Vaio's Download/Support section for my particular laptop model and i found out that my laptop is no longer supported by Sony regarding Windows 7 OS. Sony has not released an update for my graphics card.
What I don't like about Sony is the fact they don't want to support laptop's which are 2 years old in my case.
Anyway, I visited Nvidia website to find the latest driver for my card which is 258.96 and I noticed that the Firmware update is not compatiable:
: The following are not supported in this release:
- Hybrid Power technology with Intel chipsets.
- Sony VAIO notebooks. Sony VAIO Windows 7 users can click here
for driver update support.
Regarding clean install, why does In place upgrade cause problems?
