GeForce 8400M GS
I could use some SERIOUS help here.

I've tried downloading from the nvidia site the [b]latest driver update[/b] for this card which I DESPERATELY need for new various academic reasons that I am not willing to share, but the basic idea is some quick feedback would be incredibly appreciated. However, the download does not work apparently due to my laptop being a sony computer, and I apparently have to get the video driver update from the manufacturer itself? I'm not completely sure about this; when I have NVIDIA's site detect my driver through Option 2 of "Download Drivers", it says


The manufacturer of this system requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site.


So, I try the Sony website for my particular version, and the only update I find is from 2007, which is what my current driver's update is; quite depressing.

I'm trying to install

I am not very tech savvy at all but hungry for information/knowledge so answers with explanations are appreciated as well, but no real need. If you need screenshots or anything to help you help me, I'd be more than happy to oblige.
Thank you for your time.
