Nvidia driver

I own a Sony Vaio notebook VGN-NR31S/S (also labeled PGC-7121M), with a video card NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT GPU.
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).

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 geforce 8400m gs 64bit driver

Can you please create a custom Inf file for me. I tried everything incl downloading the latest Nvidia driver and mMobilityModder to no avail. I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit on a sony Vaio laptop with Nvidia geforce 8400M GS and below is the info you need on my video card:

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G Problem

I have notebook with the following components:
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"

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.

Windows not recognizing NVidia GeForce 8400M GT

I just installed Windows 7 onto my Vaio Laptop AR630E. Windows 7 is not recognizing my video card (NVidia 8400M GT) at all. I can't find it in the device manager nor can I download new drivers for it. The Sony website has no new drivers for my notebook's model.
I tried to download from NVidia's website but it could not locate my video card either.
