Sorry to hear that. It was a long shot from the beginning, anyway. ;)

comment Best practice for installing small programs without installers on Windows?
After some clarifications and comments, i'd say you should go with the classic C:\Toolbox\ approach (probably with elevated permissions). My answer above stands mainly for complete portable apps rather than command-line tools and standalone utilities. Also, if you want to bypass the nagging security window you may change permissions of specific folders to give more rights to standard users. However, this is not recommended neither by security guidelines nor for every tool in the bag, cause the system will eventually become "swiss cheese".

However, i've checked on Sony's support site myself but since they don't have any .inf for Vaio Display, i came up with an indirect solution: You may change the device driver yourself by altering from Generic Plug&Play Monitor to Digital Flat Panel. To do so: Start Device Manager (start orb-->"de ma" [enter]) >> navigate down to Monitor, select your installed monitor, >> right click >> Update driver software *select "Browse.." >> select "let me pick.." >> uncheck "show compatible hardware" >> select (Standard monitor types) >> select Digital Flat Panel 1368x768x60hz. Restart & check.

There's a very good equivalent of lspci (and more) called SIV, and you can find more on this topic.

I meant the drivers for the lcd monitor not the graphics adapter. Some manufacturers provide drivers (mostly .inf files) to fine tune a Generic Plug & Play monitor. Then, the ATI/VIDIA/INTEL graphics driver checks this info and acts appropriately. For example, a missing .inf definition file is 99% the case when the graphics driver cannot display EDID information.
