However, you might want to consider the instructions below, as many people have had the same issue you're having with getting those drivers to work with Windows 7:

Restarts computer in loop at 5-8 minutes of boot


Please try install XP SP3 in safe mode. Then check whether you have the latest Graphics Card Driver. It seems like some driver issue as it reboots only in Normal mode. Since safe mode runs on minimalset of hardware drivers.
Secondly, there may be a corrupt file that caused reboot. Spend a night and schedule bad sector check - Right click on system drive, Tools tab, Error Checking -> Check Now, tick both boxes then Start. It will schedule scan on next reboot. Then reboot to confirm it starts checking HD.

Click -START - Control Panel - INTEL GMA Driver
On the driver control screen click on - Information -
Select the - Support - tab
Click on the Graphics Driver downloads Link
Select - Graphics - and follow the prompts
You may be asked to download the update utility, do so

XP Service pack 3 will not boot with NVidia Geoforce 6600 drivers


There's a chance that your screen resolution is set higher than your monitor can handle. Try booting into safe mode and see if you can resolve the problem. You may also have to configure the BIOS to use the expansion slot that your using for the primary video, and turn the integrated (on-board) one off. (If you haven't already done so)

Problem installing Microsoft XP Service Pack 3


Have you installed any recent software in this computer?

Acer Aspire 5630


Seems like your VISTA upgrade didn't sucessfully upgrade itself from XP to VISTA. Seems like M$ update program detects your OS as XP and tries to install the SP3 for XP. VISTA only has SP1 released. Its currently stuck in a loop that it doesn't know what to do. Restart your laptop into safe mode by pressing F8 before the VISTA loading page comes up and go to Safe mode and backup your data and use the ACER RESTORE CD OR ACER RESTORE METHOD to help you reload your system back to factory defaults then upgrade back to vista without install any updates or connecting it to the internet.

This is my best solution to get you out of this weird and unusual situation.

Graphic driver problem


The Intel 852/855, 865G, and 945G video chipsets are integrated with numerous desktop, laptop, and server motherboards. Older versions of the drivers for these chipsets, often installed at the OEM factory, may conflict with patches or other drivers on each of Windows XP Home, XP Pro, and 2003 Server. Blue-screen-of-death and memory dump errors will result from running old versions of this driver. The text of these messages includes:
  • “DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL”
  • Driver conflict error: “ialmnt5.sys
  • DLL communication error: “ialmdev5.dll”
The error often occurs following Windows Service Pack upgrades, Windows Update installs, and the running of new video games. After the error appears it is usually possible to boot into safe-mode (restart and press F8 at the BIOS screen to start in safe-mode) to install the newest version of the driver. Download and install newest driver version from: http://support.intel.com/support/graphics/

I think your best bet will be to update every driver on your system and to try disabling advanced video features.

Or purchase a separate video card to install in your Windows 2003 server’s PCI or AGP slot and which already has drivers built for Windows 2003. Install that video card in the system and then disable the video Intel video chipset that is on your motherboard. (You can find closeout and refurbished video cards that might work well on sites like eBay or geeks.comno-web-bugs.gif)
