Sometimes Nvidia/AMD(ATI) drivers will not work because they have custom drivers by manufacturer.
Are you sure your laptop is Sony Vaio Fz21m
I went to Sony Driver download site and i could not find it
Sony eSupport - Computers - Select Your Model
Click on detect my model, and download your Video Display drivers.

Underneath your laptop is your information can you please post the model number it says

I had the very same issue with a similar laptop. I simply installed the Vista graphics driver for the 8400GT and it worked in Windows 7.
