Windows 7: Sony Vaio VGN-AR730E drivers help!!

If you have a load of updates for the OS, then I would install them. But those Sony programs should show, except for shared library. Do you not have a Sony folder in your programs folder?

I do have a Sony folder in the Programs folder. Is that what I have to delete? The way these other forums show is that the physical driver is either in Device manager or the Install/Uninstall option in the Control Panel.

I've also got a Sony VGN-AR730E, and all I need at this point is the NVIDIA drivers. NVIDIA sends me to Sony saying it's their deal, Sony doesn't seem to care and only has Vista drivers. At this point I can't even run multiple monitors, let alone do any video editing or games at decent speeds.

I tried installing the NVIDIA driver for Vista off Sony's site and running it in compatibility mode, but it quickly pops up with the "This program might not have installed correctly" message.

What are my options?

Using the driver and modified INF, the driver won't install. After running setup.exe and it goes through the process, it informs me that "The system has not been modified. To install this program at a later time, run the installation again." I'd make a post on their forums, but due to some issues they can't take registrations at this time.

You need to uninstall the current driver, and REBOOT, so your card in device manager is shown as a VGA device, then install it. Try that and report back.

It was listed as a Standard VGA Graphics Adapter before I tried installing drivers from laptopvideo2go. I uninstalled it, rebooted, and it came back listed as the same thing. I tried installing the modified drivers with the same results.

Are you 32 or 64bit?
