    I already tried that too, but still no Sound!

    Maybe an external soundcard would do but that would be too much for that (old) machine. I'd hoped to get this solved somehow, but it seems I have to try a reinstall with the Drivers in the proper order mentioned above....

    hi all,
    anyone knows what is our BIOS file here:
    ftp://ftp.vaio-link.com/PUB/VAIO/BIOS/

    if not present do you have a valid link for downloading?
    thanks

    How do I get the Vaio Control Center like the thread starter did (in the attached picture), I installed all drivers but it only shows "System Information" and Wireless Switch Utility"?
    Also a lot of driver's link died, can you fix it?

    Dear coolguy,

    thanks to you I have been able to use my 6 year old Vaio VGN-AW31M with an up to date driver for my Nvidia Geforce 9600m GT. Unfortunately Nvidia decided to drop support of the Geforce 9 Series, making 341.44 from February the last driver.
    Since Windows 10 is coming soon and this Windows 10 Upgrade / Reservation tool tells me that it won't run on my computer because of my GPU I wanted to ask you if you think that it will not run because Windows thinks that the last official driver was 257 or somewhat or because it just really is too old.

    I would be very happy if you could supply an update for the modded nvszcn.inf so I can install this last driver.
    Thanks again for the updates so far.

    Best Regards

    Hi Coolguy,

    I hope that you will also release a Windows 10 clean install guide once W 10 will be available and Sony will release drivers for W 10.
    Thank you.

    Regards,

    I actually run my VAIO with 341.44 nvidia driver
    Of course you need to modify .inf file
    In this case nv_dispwi.inf

    Ciao

    Thanks for the link. I had already tested Win 10 virtually and didn't experience any problems using 331.82. I guess there will be a way to install Windows 10 IF Microsoft lets me download it despite the report denying compatibilty with the GPU.

    Unfortunately I don't have a clue how to do that. I've watched some YouTube Tutorials, but they were too old and I couldn't reproduce the steps since Nvidia changed a lot over the years. I would be glad though if you could show me how to mod it myself or provide a modded inf for 9600m GT and 341.44.
