Default Blu-ray on Windows 7

Hello dudes.
I have an laptop Sony VAIO VGN-AW310J, with Nvidia 9600M GT grapchics card.
I'm using Windows 7 64 bits (Ultimate), and i'm not being able to play blu-ray discs.

If i try trough Windows Media Player, it says the disc has been produced in a format it doesn't know.
If i try trough CyberLink, it says incompatible graphics driver.

Well, i found out my driver was really old.
The problem is, windows wasn't allowing to install the new version one (from nvidia's site) and was picking up a driver from windows update (driver from 2008).
Well, got a modded inf and installed the driver.

Now the CyberLink BD Advisor says my driver isn't compatible (With the old driver it said it was all compatible(Why not, its a windows driver, huh)).

Well, my question is, what can i do in order to play the blu-ray discs ?
I'm a Computer repair technician and this problem is really fuc***** with me.
My costumer is getting annoyned and if i don't fix this i'm gonna have to install Windows XP.
It'll be a waste of power to install XP on this laptop. It won't even recognize the 4GB ram

Well, i hope you guys can help me.
Thanks

Pablo

Try a Vista x64 driver. Fixed issues I was having with the wife's laptop.

Nvidia provides the same version for Vista and Seven.
If you check their site...

Windows 7 64:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/Window...ional_whql.exe

Windows Vista 64:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/Window...ional_whql.exe

No difference at all.
