Few days back – as the below post shows .. I’ve kicked Vista out of my machine and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Installation was very smooth on VAIO, the only driver I had to install manually was the one for the graphic device. (Here is the link on HOWTO install the graphics driver manually)
You can install the 64 bit version of Java 1.6 directly from the Sun Homepage.
Next point was then to install Eclipse 3.5, but for some reason the only have one common version for Windows at the Eclipse Download Page. But this fail as this was 32bit.
so when back to the site to search for 64bit version of the Java EE Bundle. But 😦 , I couldn’t find one, then I went to http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/. There you can choose a 64 bit version, but that’s not the Java EE bundle.
you can install this and will work fine !!! 🙂 and then install the required dev plugins 🙂 manually.
NOTE : “nv_disp” and “drivers” Files are different for 32bit and 64bit. Make sure you download the right files
Here below is the link for 64bit and right below I have updated for 32bit windows 7 OS
I was facing issue getting my NVidia GeForce Go 7400 graphics card detected.
All I got was “Standard VGA Graphics Adapter” which is like “1024×768” !! .. really lame resolution.
Then I went to NVidia Site to download the latest driver but was not so useful.
Below is the solution we found and it works !!! 🙂
Download the driver and INF file from here.
Here are the steps 🙂
1. Download and extract.
2. Copy and replace the INF.
3. Install and reboot.
Walla thats it and my laptop is up and running some nice graphics (Aero and all the graphics goods .. ) with descent Resolution.
My Machine info..

NVidia GeForce Go 7400 graphics card.
OS – Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.
UPDATED : This solution works with 32bit too – TESTed it today :).
