    Can't find any drivers compatible for my laptop.


    I'm trying to play minecraft and other games but they don't load or display correctly.

    Computer: Sony Vaio VGN-CR31Z

    All the drivers I download aren't compatible.

    Before Win 8 everything worked fine with Intel Centrino.
    But Windows Basic Display Adapter is horrible and the only compatible.
    Does anyone have any drivers that would work? Everything I've downloaded is not compatible.
    Even the Sony Europe website doesn't have the correct drivers, it just makes my resolution weird.
    Also my PC needs a driver with OpenGL.. for MC.

    Thanks :'D

    According to my quick Google search, your laptop has the ATi Radeon X2300 graphics card. There are some threads in this forum section about legacy drivers that MIGHT work with this card. You should check them out.

    Tried the Vista drivers?

    Sony : VGN-CR31Z/N updates | Download updates for VGN-CR31Z/N

    I f they're real Vista (WDDM 1.0) drivers, they may work. You may have to use compatibility mode to install them.

    I believe that if you use modified drivers, they won't install on Win8 X64 unless you turn off the driver signing protection. The 32 bit version may be less persnickety.
