    Ok, I've got an Australian addition Z36GD. I'm aware my model drivers aren't ready yet but what model would that be in American editions as it seems they're going to have the drivers up and running well before the Australian support site...

    Anyone tried this already; according to the EU support, you should uninstall first:

    ....

    Warning!
    Applying this update without using the uninstaller for the old driver and/or without applying the correct BIOS version first will result in a system without working display. That issue can not be fixed without reinstalling the operating system.

    How do I perform this update?

    0.Before installing this driver, you need to:
    a.Download and run the nVidia Graphics Driver Uninstaller
    b.Download and apply the BIOS Version

    R4043M3 for Z3 and Z4 Series or
    R2170M3 for Z2 Series.
    1.Download this Graphics update.
    2.When the download is completed, locate the downloaded file in the location you specified.
    3.Double-click EP0000208679.exe to run it.
    4.Wait while the wizard updates your software.
    5.When the installation is complete, restart the VAIO.

    Tried - the problem is the BIOS Version listed in the information R4043M3 and R2170M3 - we think that this can be the solution to fix. Sony, give us the BIOS please!
