vpcl135fx nvidia geforce gt 330m incompatible with Windows 10

I downloaded the Windows 10 driver from Nvidia for the gt 330m chip set, however cannot install as the nvidia application shows the error that "graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware".

 

I have also tried to install the default Windows 7 driver from Sony support, the installation proceeds however on restarting the computer, the video card is still "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" which is low resolution.

 

Has anyone had success in installing the driver for the 330m graphics card on their Vaio system in Windows 10? It's unfortunate that a system less than 4 years old is not fully compatible with Windows 10.

Thank you so much Darren_CP!!!

 

All, Darren_CP's post is THE Solution. I followed the detailed instructions and the video card was updated in Windows 10. Look no further.

Is Darren's solution applicable to most vaios (i.e. mine is a vpcz13ahx).  I have the same nvidia card so I am hoping this is the case?

It should work for any Vaio that has nVidia hardware.  However, if you notebook is on Sony supported list (selected models shipped with 8/8.1) , then you could also just wait for Sony to release their updated drivers.  In your case, I don't think there is any point in waiting.

I will try @Darren_CP's work around because my model is not listed.  Thank you very much.
