DRIVER PROBLEM on sony vaio VGN-AR630E

So here is my problem.
This laptop has a nvidia 8400m gt. I installed windows 7 Professional 32-bit, and i installed every driver i needed without a problem. Now when i install the driver fro the gpu mentioned, the laptop won't boot up, all i get is some green lines flashing and i don't get to desktop. I tried the drivers from sony website, the ones from nvidia( modfying inf file), also went on laptopvideo2go and i tried those ones. All end up with same result -.-

Have you found a solution?

TV Tuner Driver for Sony Vaio
I'm looking everywhere for the Sony Vaio driver for the TV tuner. I have a Sony Vaio VGC-LN1M. The driver is definitely not on the Sony Vaio site, although it has for Vista, it doesn't have it for the 64-bit version of Windows 7 - which is what I'm using.
