Gentlemen & Ladies,
Due to a change of OS ( fresh/ clean) installation ( not from DVD disks but ISO file )of Windows from original OS 32 bits Vista Ultimate sp2 to Windows 7-Professional-64 bits, and a replacement of solid state drives, makes me believe I will need to replace the driver for the Intel processor.
My laptop is a good old Sony Vaio VGN-AR770 that has Intel Core 2 Duo T9500 2.6 GHz / Or called PM965? processor.
BIOS info: Pheonix Tech LTD, version R2080J8
I tried using the " Intel Driver & Support Assist " from Intel's website , but the scanning takes forever.
I went back to Sony's website for driver/software, but they only have the 32 bits version/ Vista available for my laptop.
Due to the installation of OS was done on a clean/ flash basis, i believe the original driver for the intel chipset is gone, now perhaps running on Windows 7 Professional genetic driver??
Would anyone give me the link for the driver, please?
Or should download & install the 32 bits driver from Sony's website and then try the "Intel Driver & Support Assist" again?? Will this brings me a blue screen of death ?? I mean mixing 32 bits driver with 64 bits platform???
Furthermore, I also ran into a similar situation with Nvidia driver, I found from their website the 64 bits version of Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT driver, but I cannot install the driver, is it because i did not install the 32 bits driver from Sony and now using Windows 7 Pro 's genetic driver--so it cannot detect a Nvidia driver??
In addition, do I need to update the BIOS after the OS's changed?
p.s. Earlier I asked for assistance at this section for help, and John C 21 was so nice to help me. He is a great guy !
Thank you in advance,
