Default Sony Vaio VCPF1290X and 260.19.29 X starts

I wanted to update prior threads about Sony Vaios having X crash with driver versions > 256.53 including 260.19.12 anb 260.19.21. With .29, X starts normally again on this system with a GeForce 310M built in card.

Still the blank screen problem when switching to a console or quitting X remains, but at least X works again.

kernel 2.6.36.2
