Latest Driver for Sony VGN-AR71M


Recommended Posts


I'm looking for the latest driver for the Sony vaio VGN-AR71M

This is the info I get from the hardware IDs (the card is Nvidia 8400 GT)

O/S: Win 7 x64 Ultimate





So if someone could help me get the latest drivers for that it would be appreciated a lot :)

Well it seems after looking around I found what I was after.

Follow step 4 in this and it works fine - http://forum.noteboo...de-vaio-fz.html

I attached the file mentioned in the step to save anyone else the trouble of registering on another forum.

4. Nvidia Verde 306.23 WHQL driver (Vaio FZ, AR, AW, CS & CW) :

32-bit driver: http://us.download.n....ional-whql.exe

64-bit driver: http://us.download.n....ional-whql.exe

Extract the downloaded driver using 7-zip/ Uniextract. Now download the attached "Nvidia 3xx.xx" zip file (see end of the guide), and extract the appropriate 32/ 64-bit "nvszc" inf file. Copy/ replace the "nvszc" inf file into "Display.Driver" folder of the extracted driver package. Disable any Antivirus software, and run the "setup" in the driver pack. In the Nvidia install screen, choose "Custom Install", uncheck "Nvidia Update", 3D Vision components, check "Physx system software" if you want Physx, HD Audio if you have Nvidia audio device, check "Perform Clean install", and click next to continue. Ignore the Windows security warning to finish installing the driver, and restart as prompted.
