Help regarding NVIDIA GeForce 310m Win 7 -32 bit

After downgrading Windows 7 from 64bit to 32bit on my Sony Vaio VPCS118EC I cannot find the correct driver for my graphic card NVIDIA Geforce 310m.

Please help me out !!

It may be necessary to download the drivers directly from Sony. Manufacturers sometimes use custom device IDs for graphics adapters, so a generic nVidia installer may not recognize your adapter. (It'd be worth a try, though.)

I'd normally check esupport.sony.com, but that's primarily for US models and it appears that your VPCS118EC may not have been sold in the US market. I imagine that Sony has online support for whatever market it was sold into. If the EC suffix indicates China, I'm limited in searching there, as it appears to be a Chinese (only) site.

@xXxRaz0r029xXx: Thank you, I will check with if the driver works...

@bobkn: Sony site does not have drivers for Windows 7 32 bit, it gives software and driver support only for Win 7 64 bit.

Though I have got my lap top from China, all the web-pages are translated automatically to English.

So I was looking for some third party developer from whom I could get support.

Anyways thanks for your support! If you have any more information regarding the same please share.

This is the site Google serves up:

http://www.sony.com.cn/index.htm

What's yours?

I see similar models with the 310M graphics. Haven't spotted any 32 bit drivers; I guess that the models have only been shipped with X64.

I'd suggest trying Vista X86 drivers, but I don't see any of those either.

It's possible to add device IDs to the .inf file of the generic nVidia installer, but I've not done it.
