    I am currently using a Sony Vaio All-in-one desktop. It probably around 6 years old, and has been running slowly lately so I wiped it using DBAN and then proceeded to install Windows 7 64 bit. After installing java, activex and some other drivers, I then downloaded a game called League of Legends. When I tried running the game however, I got a "could not load direct3d" error. So, after delving into some research (my model number is VGC-LT10E), it seems to me that this computer is so old, that Sony never released updated drivers for Windows 7 compatibility. The only drivers I could find (graphics card is GeForce 8400m GT) were compatible only with Vista. To add to the mess, this comp apparently only uses proprietary drivers, so I couldn't get drivers from nvidia's website.

    TL;DR -
    Does anyone know of a way to get working drivers for my Sony Vaio (VGC-LT10E) on Windows 7 64 bit?
    I want to try and avoid having to downgrade back to Vista.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
