Thank you for your suggestion.
There are no nVidia drivers in my model's series for Win7 x64.
There are nVidia Win7 x64 drivers for other series, but when I try to run them, I am unsuccessful:
"This Update is not intended for use with your computer model."

I will now try the nVidia installer in safe mode.
If the other series is similar to yours - and it must be - extract with universal extractor and then install normally.
Thank you for your suggestion.
I believe there was some progress... I did manage to install a nVidia driver, but there is no evidence upon system restart of the installation - neither a driver folder in Windows, nor my GPU in the device manager.
I am currently attempting another nVidia driver using the Universal Extractor.

Edit: Unsuccessful. Could not locate drivers for my hardware.
Edit2: I think the system has restored to a previous point, as my Windows Update is showing that it is installing updates that it already had installed.

Bless you!

I installed the drivers from the Sony x64 Drivers link.
Successful:
Thank you very much for your help, both Frostmourne and especially FZ21Z!
Have a very happy day!

Now will talk to Sony about why they had hidden those from their support site for my series. :evil:
