The driver should support your GPU, but I don't know what sort of effect it will have on the blu-ray functionality. I believe that Sony is one of those manufacturers who can be a bit pinnicky about drivers that don't originate from them.
From the NVidia website:

But as I said earlier, the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor still says the GeForce 8400M GT will not be compatible. Should I just attempt to see what happens?

No errors, just failed to install and yes, I tried every possible method. Ended up with a screen that looked to me to be sub-RGB if that is possible. The same goes for any drivers beta or otherwise above this version, but in my main Vista OS only. I did manage to get 266.58 to install on the other one and in my Win 7's.
Sorry I should have clarified which OS I was talking about and realized we were talking Win 7 here.
I must say, judging by the nVidia GeForce forums, I am by no means alone in this situation.
