Problem with updating Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT graphics card
I successfully installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit by choosing custom install on my Sony Vaio VGN-NR21S. I didnt delete my Windows Vista Home Edition 32-bit recovery partition.
I am having difficulty in updating the graphics card which is a Nvidia Geforce 8400M GT. I downloaded a desktop 8400 driver from Nvidia site(UK) for me.
I then used the mobility modder tool for Nvidia and it modified the inf file. I then ran the Setup.exe from the Nvidia directory.
The problem is that i keep getting a message saying "The System has not been modified" after running the setup.exe
I then tried the notebook 8400M GT driver from Nvidia site(even though its not supported by Sony) That didnt work.
So i then tried using the Mobility modder on the notebook 8400M driver but the same problem occurs.
I am not confident in modifying the inf file outlined in the following:

NVIDIA: 181.71 vs. 185.85
I have a GeForce 8400M GS in my notebook and when I install windows I automatically download the 181.71 driver which I remember was getting a lot of hype a few months ago. It works pretty well. Then I went to the Nvidia website and checked for any newer drivers for my GPU and it gives me 185.85. So I download and install it, and I see no difference except that with 181.71, if I right click on the desktop I get an immediate reaction. 185.85 gives a slight <1 second lag before reacting. I rolled back my driver, but I'm wondering if there's any reason I should go for 185.85 over 181.71.

Install 2 Video Cards BSOD
Already have a fully functional system, but want to run 3 - 4 monitors. Trying to install a second graphics card that I had laying around, a GeForce 7300 LE. First install BSOD. Go into safe mode disable driver, boots up fine. Tried a few things like updating driver through NVidia's auto driver search feature. Tried opening NVidia Control Panel to see if it would access the card but no luck. Really not sure what to try next to get this thing to work. The driver causing the BSOD is nvlddmkm.sys
