    Hi guys, since 2 weeks I've installed the latest Nvidia drivers (310.90) using a proper modified inf for our VAIOs, created by a user from this safe site: v310.90 Windows 8 64bit | NVIDIA OEM Mobile - 31x Series GeForce Driver release - LaptopVideo2Go Forums

    I'm using Windows 8 64bit and I can confirm that it has the same issue as previous drivers, whereas brightness fn keys doesn't work and you have the only option to adjust the screen brightness using the Windows 8 charm bar menu, into Settings.
    I hope you enjoy ;)

    P.S. Sorry for posting late.. :p

    coolguy, you are a legend thank you so much for this resource. You have saved me from huge stress levels around my Win 8 install.

    Hey a quick question. I have an FZ440N and have got up to step 14 OK but unfortunately I am getting the "This program has compatibility issues" pop up when I try to run the Broadcom Bluetooth setup.exe file. It doesn't allow me to bypass this it seems even if I run in XP or 7 compatibility mode. What do you suggest? Do the contents of the .zip need modification in any way?

    hi,
    I've installed windows 8 and a lot of drivers didn't work, but with you guide most of them are working properly.
    The problem is this: one driver remains unknown with the yellow triangle, that is: "Intel(R) ICH8M LPC Interface Controller - 2815".
    If I try to install the windows 7 version, a message says that there is already a newer version installed, which is 9.3.0.1026
    any suggestions to fix the problem?
    thank you very much!!!!!!!!:D

    He hasn't been online since Dec 17th. The last time I talked to him, he was thinking of buying a new laptop. I'll try to contact him.
