I have a Sony VAIO VGN-SZ430N notebook which has an onboard nVidia GEForce 7400 GO graphics card.

I used to get the "NVIDIA Control Panel" menu option in the "Right Click" context menu but the same has vanished ... and I am seeing Graphics options of "Intel" instead ... Intel Graphics are really very poor and will not allow me to play games which require 3D graphics acceleration ...

I tried installing "nVidia Display Drivers" but in vain. All I am getting is an error: "The NVIDIA Setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware. Setup will now exit."

If I am installing the original display the installation completes in less than a minute and the display driver does not show up in the "Device Manager" and not even in Control Panel.

I tried getting help from Sony eSupport but nothing and noone proved helpful.

Can someone pls. help me with this?

You should be able to visit the Sony website HERE and download the video files that you need. Welcome to HotHardware, Jaspal!


Thanks for the response but I have already tried this and the downloaded driver (like I posted in my problem above) gets installed in less than a minute but does not show up in Device manager as well as Control panel.

I am trying to look at something like ... is this an issue altogether with the physical hardware (NVIDIA Graphics card itself) ????


Have you tried going to nvidia's website directly. Maybe the driver your downloading from sony is bad.
