Nvidia GeForce 8400M GT GPU Driver problem!!!

Hi guys,

I'm wondering if any of you could help me.
I'm using a Sony Vaio VGN-NR31Z/S laptop

Specs:
Intel core 2 duo @ 1.83Ghz
3Gb DDR2-SDRAM
Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT GPU
OS: Vista Home Premium SP2 32bit and Windows 7 Ultimate (RC build 7100) 32bit (Dual Boot)

I'm currently having problems with my graphic card driver and the aero effects in windows 7. It wont allow me to install the driver or use the aero effects and that is a bummer for me. I really wanted to try it out. I'll appreciate it if anybody could help me!!

Thx

Hi and welcome.

Your model seems to be from Europe. Sony site is picky about country.

Did you install drivers from the official site?

If you use drivers from the Nvidia site, they might not work. Some laptop drivers are specific to company specs..

With Nvidia mobile cards, most companies don't create and update versions of the drivers. Also, when you attempt to install the one from Nvidia's website, it won't work due to the inf file. I've always gone to Laptopvideo2go to get the latest drivers for my Nvidia Mobile chipsets. Hope that gets you working.
