I have a Sony Vaio laptop with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M video card.
The latest version available through Vaio Support is from 28 November 2010.
The latest version available from NVIDIA website is from 10 Octomber 2012.
That's almost than 1 year apart.

Now, the problem is that when trying to update graphics driver using the installer from the NVIDIA website, I get an error pop-up saying that I have to download the driver from the manufacturer website.

Your product manufacturer requires you to download a driver for your device from their website

How can I get around that please?

You can try finding updated drivers on Laptopvideo2go, to find the DEV and SUBSYS go to your Device Manager then :

Copy these two values on the site and they may have updated drivers for your laptop.

Try at your own risk (I've never had a problem with this method on a Fujitsu-Siemens and a an HP).
