Help with NVidia 8400M GT driver

Guys,

Please help please, I am running a Sony Vaio as described below.

It seems that my NVidia Driver is crashing every time I stream directly from the Internet e.g. Youtube a.s.o. and the image is turning into green.

It is giving me the following message "Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 275.33 stopped responding and has successfully recovered

Just to mention that I have the latest driver from NVidia; release date 2011.06.01

Thanks in advance.

Any other suggestions I would be more than happy to try them.

Thank a lot for your input!

I can get no results for Sony VGN-FZ11E, is this the correct model number?

You might try Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper to uninstall your current driver. Download the 270.61 driver
NVIDIA Driver Downloads - Advanced Search and save it first to install after using Driver Sweeper.

Didn't try to, thought it might install over the 275.33 one. Will give it a try and revert. Thanks.

Yes this model was sold in the SE Europe, Sony Vaio does not offer any support at all for this one. It had pre-installed Vista on it. That is why you cannot find anything about this model.
Tks and will revert with further info.
