windows 7 ultimate 32 bit


Ive done other threads on the following problem and I cant beleive it that more people dont seem to have this problem.

Im talking about the Sony Vaio AW Series (mines a 235J)and the fact Nvidia or Sont dont supply the software for the graphics card. Am I supposed to watch windows 7 stuff in low resolution? It does say at the start of this thread that Sony is not supported by this new sparkly driver update but when is this gonna happen.

Everyone here has other computers that work fine after a bit of f#@ing around with nvidia drivers, I wanna get this going as it is a nice computer and I will dual boot XP later on but I do want Windows 7 (32 bit) going.

Does anyone know when the official driver comes out? Or where I can download a working one and yes ive tried all the inf file substitutions and modding files. So has everyone else and they say they dont work on similiar forums. I cant beleive noone can write a driver for this computer.

Thanks for listening to the rant.

Hello Ebbsy,

If it's an NVIDIA based graphics card, then you can use the NIVIDIA drivers for that series of card (or integrated chip) on the first page as well no matter what vendor made the NIVIDIA card.

Hope this helps,

The latest driver for your 9600M GT is 197.16 WHQL below from NIVIDIA.

Windows 7

as a warning, those are development/preview drivers only and will not benefit the end users that much. Its also developed on a seperate path compared to the recent released 197.45's and so do not include the same improvements, if any.

Windows 7 Pro (x64)

197.45 fails to operate successfully (minor environmental texture issue) on Neverwinter Nights 2.
196.21 required to work successfully. Effectively puts the new 4xx cards out of the question until this is fixed.
(Win7 64 bit versions of drivers behaviour confirmed).
