Correct Graphics Driver for Windows 7

Hi, I recently upgraded my OS from XP to Windows7 and I cannot find the correct video/graphics driver. I have done some research and it seems there are many people with this problem as Intel has not made a driver that is for this chipset running Windows7. Below I have pasted details of my systems config as well as Experience Index info. Any help will be so appreciated Cheers Hugh Motherboard: CPU Type Mobile Intel Pentium M 730, 1600 MHz (12 x 133) Motherboard Name TOSHIBA Satellite Pro M40X Motherboard Chipset Intel Alviso-G i915GM System Memory 1526 MB (PC2700 DDR SDRAM) BIOS Type Phoenix (06/09/05) Display: Video Adapter Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family (128 MB) Video Adapter Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family (128 MB) 3D Accelerator Intel GMA 900 Monitor Generic PnP Monitor [NoDB] More details about my computer Component Details Subscore Base score Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.60GHz 3.0 1.0 Determined by lowest subscore Memory (RAM) 1.50 GB 4.1 Graphics 1.9 Gaming graphics Not detected 1.0 Primary hard disk 11GB Free (56GB Total) 3.8 Windows 7 Home Basic

    Tried that with multiple scanners, they did not pick up the issue :(

  • Reece Cleall Apr 25, 2013

    Right ok with the next thing i would do is to check the service packs. Make sure they are up to date and let me know

  • Hugh Thole Apr 25, 2013

    Ok I have SP1 installed and all updates. Also this is what Intel says :

  • Reece Cleall Apr 25, 2013

    Ok, we've got to the problem! download and install service pack 2. Go to windows... well the main menu you click and click updates install eveything and restrate a few times and recheck available downloads do these atleast two time preferably three. Again let me know after :)

  • Reece Cleall Apr 25, 2013

    *restart a few times checking updates before every restart

  • Hugh Thole Apr 25, 2013

    Ok have downloaded everything in Update. Please see following links re SP2

  • Reece Cleall Apr 25, 2013

    Make sure all updates are installed then check drivers again with the driver easy, there may be another pack that need installing not from windows but for your computer. should be all good after this

  • Hugh Thole Apr 25, 2013

    Done but no change :( Did you mange to read the links I sent I think the case is useless and will have to revert to XP?

No video after boot up


Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

The device in question is the graphics chipset.

The Operating System is now Windows 7 64-bit.

You were running Windows XP -> 32bit

(Have you got audio? Sound)

This is why I repeatedly try to tell people;

before trying to upgrade to frickin Windows 7!

Yes sir; sure are.

+ VGA (3)
Suggest use the oldest version -
AMD VGA driver V8 631.0.0

The reason Windows XP blue screened is because the Integrated Graphics of the Asus M4A785TD-V motherboard couldn\'t handle the game.

You need a graphics card. A PCI Express graphics card inserted into the BLUE PCI Express x16 expansion slot, on the motherboard.

(Remember; Install the software F-I-R-S-T, then unplug from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions; and THEN physically install the graphics card.
Software; The Installation Disk for the graphics card.
Has the Drivers, and user interface.
User Interface: Catalyst Control Center for ATI graphics cards;
Nvidia Control Center for Nvidia graphics cards)

Hi there, That graphics card is not supported by Windows 7 - it does not have enough VRAM to run Windows Aero. If you want to use Windows 7 to it's full graphics potential, you will need to upgrade your video card. Alex

How to uppdate from Windows Xp into Windows7 I

Well, it depends on your computer specification because every operating system has it own hardware requirements. Before upgrading to windows 7 make it sure your motherboard support the windows 7 operating system. In your case your motherboard supported by the windows 7 so when upgrading rather formatting your computer you must have the windows 7 installer. Then follow this video tutorial on how to setup your computer to windows 7. Before formatting you must have to back up all your data or files saved on your hard drive. Have a nice day

The error message is correct. Windows 7 is not backwards compatible with certain graphics adapters requiring DirectX support higher than 8.0.
You should attempt first to install the proper driver for your graphics adapter from the manufacturer, and if that does not fix the issue, you should either install a new graphics adapter, or revert back to Windows XP.

How i intall my Graphic driver for windows 7 because i do not have the driver for windows 7 in my mother board cd.


It doesn't seem that there are Windows 7 drivers for your motherboard (I'm assuming you're talking about your onboard graphics) - See here.

The best option you have is trying to install the VGA drivers for Windows 2000/XP and hope that works. Otherwise you're going to have to revert to Windows XP for your grapics to function correctly.

Another option you have is installing a 3dcard on the motherboard. Click here for a complete list of graphics cards supported.

Good Luck,

Windows 7 problem with video card (Intel 852-855)

I've search about that chip video card of your motherboard, I don't it has a software driver for windows 7, maybe it's not supported yet to run for windows 7.
I have a link here but for only Intel 852/855GM/865G/845G/910G/915G Graphics Driver 14.9 Windows 2000/XP.
And supposed to be for the windows.
All you have to do is buy a new VGA that support for windows 7, at least now many kind of VGA card available. Hope this might give you some ideas.
