GeForce 8400M GT on Sony VAIO Dirver updare problem
Hi

I would like to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7, but the upgrade adviser says my GeForce driver is not supported. I them run the automatic detection on the NVIDIA website which gave the following:

GeForce 8400M GTHas been detected in your system.
Your current driver is 167.43
Latest Driver Version 285.62

But when I run the latest driver it tells me there is no compatible hardware. The driver IDs are:

PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0426&SUBSYS_9016104D&REV_A1
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0426&SUBSYS_9016104D
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0426&CC_030000
PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0426&CC_0300


Can anybody tell me how I can update my driver please ?


When I manipulate the .inf file and install the latest driver, the automated check gives then:

GeForce 8400M GT
Has been detected in your system.
Sony requires that you download the driver for your GPU from their support site.

Why doesn't the check tell me immediately I need a Sony driver (which Sony does not provide for Windows 7)?

Thank you
Markus
