Vaio VGN-AR51E

Nvidia has updated Windows 7 drivers for the GeForce 8400M GT in my Vaio laptop but Nvidia says they are not compatible with Sony. Sony has no updated drivers for me. Any way round this?

My question is, am I stuck witg Vista and a copy of Windows 7 that I can not use? or is there a way to work around it? Thanks.
I spoke to Sony today and was advised that they will be posting drivers to support Win7 in the very near future. They told me to watch their help center. Hope they update soon. Thanks for the replys

Hope this helps!

I have an AR830e (all main drivers seem to be the same as the 630)...I have been trying to get my function/s/eject buttons working for weeks. What was your process for getting them to work??

My last try was:
1-SFEP
2-Shared Lib
3-Utilities

I have also tried a couple other variations but am getting sick of the time it's taking to install/uninstall, just to get nowhere.


I cannot get my camera working (though I don't really care, and I assume it's something to do with Utilities not working and I see the 630 has it's own camera utility) and I got my SD card reader working only because I found a link to an updated TI driver (not posted by Sony or easily found on TI's site).

Any advice would be appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate and Vaio AR630E - Tews Attn

Hi guys,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-AR630, and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit installed on it, and I can't find drivers for Graphics card and the Multimedia Keys. I saw that Tews installed them without issues. Can you give a link with the drivers ?

I did a reinstall last week, and got mine, on an FZ working using the following method...

1. Sony Shared library

2. Setting utility series

3. Vaio Event service

4. Vaio Control center

I've now taken them off though because the Windows key + X gives the same option and I don't want unnecessary services running that I'm rarely, if at all, ever going to use.

EDIT: You can get the above software from - ftp://ftp.vaio-link.com/PUB/VAIO/WIN7UPGRADE/
