    Hey guys,

    I have a sony vaio vgn-aw31m model with a geforce 9600m gt and i am having problems updating it. My driver version dates back to 2008 so obviously i needed to update the driver. However after downloading them from the Nvdia website, it says that it could not find any compatible hardware. This seems to be a (reasonably) common problem. I have tried laptopvideo2go with no luck. This severely hampers my experiences with games etc. This forum is my last hope :/ if you could answer this you would be saving me a lot of money.

    Cheers,

    Tuinsmurf.

    Can you uninstall all the nvidia Driver and just reboot the system and let Vista pickup the driver.. if they don't have the driver when it start up.... try to update it manuel in Device manager...
