Im assuming you are using the on board video so a new video card with its own ram built in will improve system prefomance also.

HP Pavilion a6010n graphic card driver is incompatible with CyberLink Power DVD 10


Your pc has an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 video chip, integrated on the motherboard - it's extremely weak and supported only in XP. Its driver can be found here

But the best solution is to get a new separate video card, one like

How to increase my gaming graphics of aspire L310 desktop


Your computer uses the Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3000, which is built into your motherboard. Unfortunately, there are no additional drivers for your computer so performance can not be upgraded, in that sense.

What you can do though is increase the screen resolution (on the desktop and in game settings). This should allow for a sharper, clearer image and a better overall gaming experience

I need vga driver


Hello,

From as little information as you provide i can only assume that you use Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (that comes as integrated graphics).
Referring to this site http://www.softwaredriverdownload.com/download_intel_gma_950_driver_for_windows_xp.html

you should install http://rs35.rapidshare.com/files/137995187/win2k_xp14311.exe

Please provide feedback

I have compaq presario Model CQ50-130US. I trying to find its drivers but invain. Please help.


(1) SATA DRIVER

"32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility"

filename = f6flpy3286.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2101&DwnldID=17061&lang=eng

Unzip the contents, add one component (iaAHCI.inf) into your nLite (a free slipstreaming program) slipstream build and you will avoid Blue Screen of Death when you try to install WinXP. Note: select Intel(R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller when you add iaAHCI.inf to your slipstream. Or you can just add all the drivers.

After you get XP up and running, you can install the rest of the drivers for the notebook:

(2) CHIPSET

"CHIPSET_INF Update Utility - Primarily for Intel 4, 3, 900 Series Chipsets"

filename = infinst_autol.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=2991&DwnldID=16026&strOSs=44&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Professional&lang=eng

For the executable version (filename = infinst_autol.exe), use this link from Intel:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/16023/a08/infinst_autol.exe&agr=&ProductID=816&DwnldId=16023&strOSs=&OSFullName=&lang=eng


(3) GRAPHICS

"Intelâ® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows* XP (zip)"

filename = win2k_xp14364.zip

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?ProductID=2991&DwnldID=17116&lang=eng

You'll unzip the contents of that zip, and then point your drive update to the folder with those contents to update your graphics.

(4) AUDIO (2-step process)

(a) Conexant Patch (do this first)

"Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver version 1.0a available for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000"

filename = kb888111.exe

http://www.filewatcher.com/m/kb888111.exe.682200.0.0.html

(b) Install audio drivers

"Conexant Audio Driver for Windows XP"

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownloadIndex?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&softwareitem=ob-10516-1&printable=no&encodeUrl=true&

(5) NETWORK ADAPTER (wired)

Realtek RTL8100E/RTL8101E/RTL8102E-GR/RTL8103E(L)/RTL8102E(L) NIC Driver 5.714

filename = PCIE_Install_5714_0216.zip

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/REALTEK/Realtek-RTL8100E-RTL8101E-RTL8102E-GR-RTL8103E-L-RTL8102E-L-NIC-Driver-5714.shtml

(6) NETWORK ADAPTER (wireless)

Atheros AR5007 802.11b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5006 802.11a/b/g WiFi Adapter
Atheros AR5009 802.11a/g/n WiFi Adapter
(version 7.6.0.114)

filename = sp39403.exe

M having lenovo 3000 Y500 776146Q laptop with intel media accelerator. but i cannot play games which require high graphics,so what are your suggestioins....what shold i do?? can i install an additional...


I don't believe it is possible with this particular laptop. I know in the past some of the dell laptops have had a Microagp graphics platform that can be upgraded.

Most laptops have the graphics built into the motherboard which makes them impossible to upgrade.

There used to be some PCMCIA video cars that you could use but they were more for using additional monitors than for high powered graphics. I believe there have been some mention of USB video cards but again I think these are just for adding more desktop real estate than for replacing existing built in graphics.

So to answer your question specifically, no I don't think there is an upgradeable option for your particular needs.

Hope this helps.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver


The file is apart of the Intel graphics driver system. If you uninstall and reinstall the Intel MGA driver it may clear up this message.
You can also try to update the driver using the following method:
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
Select the Check System button to get latest driver
This method will keep your computer up to date.
