Fix for older motherboards like Intel 845GVSR etc.,
HERE IS THE SOLUTION FOR FIXING DISPLAY PROBLEMS.... (This solution works for any Intel Motherboard)
No need to donwload or install any drivers. Vista has everything built in.
Only thing is it needs atleast 128 Mb of Video Memory, but for older motherboards like Inter 845 by default the Video Memory is configured to 64 Mb which is resulting in your problem.
So what you have to do is...
Restart your computer > Press DEL Key and Go to BIOS Settings > Advanced > Video Configuration
1. Change "AGP Aperture Size" from 64 Mb to "128 Mb or Higher" 2. Leave "Primary Video Adapter" as "Integrated" 3. Change "Frame Buffer Size" from 1 Mb to "8 Mb"
and then press F10(i.e., Save changes and continue).
Sometimes, for the first time you may see screen not aligned properly, in that case just restart once more and Vista will automatically adjust the alignment for you.
Also, you can change the resolution to your desired one manually as follows...
1. Click "Start Button" 2. Right click on "Computer" 3. Select "Properties" option from the context menu. 4. Scroll down and find "Disply Settings" option and click it. 5. Adjust Resolution Size and Mode.
NOW, ENJOY USING VISTA.....
i don't know weathere you are awared of this or not...
to get the 32 bit graphic on 82845gv motherboard go to BIOS setting and change your video frame buffer size to 8 mb and agp aeperture to 256 mb and let the system boot... you will get 32 bit graphic with 1024 x 748 screen resolution... i have changed and believe me it is working
but only problem is that you will hardly play any game or use bubble screen saver..
