    I recently upgraded my Sony Vaio sz770n from Windows Vista business to Windows 7 x32 professional. It works great except it keeps saying that there is a problem with my intel graphics driver and the screen will freeze occasionally for no reason. I have looked on the sony website, intel and nvidia and cannot find a graphics/video driver for my computer. The sony site says that there is a video driver from nvidia but there is no file to download. I have also tried to reinstall the old windows vista driver but my computer won't allow it. It says that the driver is not intended for windows 7. I like windows 7 but this problem is super inconvient. Can somebody help me figure this out?

    Hi Icasco,

    If you check the screen shot you'll see that there are indeed drivers for your machine. I believe that the actual GPU drivers will be contained within the chipset drivers so try updating them first.
    The actual link to that page is here:

    I also found this:

    Thanks, kemical but I have downloaded the newest chipset from intel and the problem persists. Also my action center says that there is a problem with my intel graphics driver, but when I search for a solution it says that it cannot find one.
