What's wrong... Please write below.
Intel® Core™2 Duo T7250 2.0GHz

nVidia GeForce 8400M GT GPU

I have just downloaded the right driver for my graphic card from nvidia website. When I tried to install, this message appear:
"The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"
I tried looking in nvidia site but the support page says that i have to get it from sony and sony have not yet updated their drivers.
MY PROBLEM is Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS, when i check Device Manager Display,I got yellow mark,i just can't update it. I tried everything no joy at all. My questions:
1)What drivers i need for windows7 Ultimate 32-bit
2)Do I need to download Nvidia drivers from, Nvidia site or HP site.
3)My biggest annoying problem is , screen resolution. It stuck on 600 x 480 and I cant changed it.
4)So drivers i need if i am right.
a)nvidia chipset ,(but which one)
What else i got no idea.
I can't find a suitable driver for Windows 7.
I tried to install this file: 186.03_notebook_win7_32bit_international_whql.exe, downloaded from your site, but the installation fails (no driver found for current hardware).
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:
Intel® Core™2 Duo T5750 2.0GHz 2MB MSIEX600X-431EU FSB667,
3072MB (3GB) DDR2 667MHz,
250GB SATA 5400rpm,
15.4" WXGA 1280x800 Crystal Brite,
nVidia GeForce 8400M 256MB
Everything worked fine on Vista Home. Yesterday i installed Windows 7 Professional (original) and some problem with display. When i go to Display properites it is showing me that i have Standard VGA Graphics Adapter and it is having only 14MB(like when someone installs any OS that does not have drivers in their own database). At first i try to download new drivers from NVIDIA for my graphic card that are supported for Windows 7. When I try to install them after the extraction of files and start of setup an error message appears "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit"
I tried to download from NVidia's website but it could not locate my video card either.
