Need driver for Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT (on Sony Vaio laptop)

rknetwork asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-08
Decided to downgrade my Sony Vaio laptop (Model: AW160J/Q) to Windows XP Professional.
I was able to find and install all drivers EXCEPT for the video card.

NVIDIA's website officially says:
Version: 197.16 WHQL
Sony VAIO notebooks – support will be added in a later release.

Tried to install the above driver and it really does not work saying: Compatible hardware not found.

All other drivers from NVIDIA's website described as:
The following notebooks are not supported in this release: SONY VAIO (check with manufacturer).

Tried to install Vista 32-bit driver from Sony's website, it says: Incompatible O/S.

Not sure what to do.

Please include links to the driver.
