Intel 4 Series Express Chipset family driver help.
Hello guys, first time poster here
So i'm using a Gateway nv78, its a pretty cheap computer. It uses the above mentioned 4 series chipset integrated video card. Now the problem im having comes to the drivers and how it effects my game playing performance. i recently wiped my hard drive because i was planning on selling the pc, however i dont plan to sell it anymore. Now, my previous display driver had allowed me to turn my graphics settings down really low, thus allowing me to play (starcraft 2) at a playable FPS. now with my computer being essentially reformatted and using the drivers suggested by gateway, i can't adjust these settings to a low enough point to allow me to play these games. I've tried installing what i remember to be the driver i had before, but it is now telling me that said driver is not compatable with my machine, and that i should use the manufacturer's drivers.
now if anyone understood all of that, and can perhaps tell me how to get better drivers, or bypass the error of not letting me download these alternative drivers.
I'm clearly a tech noob, so any information you guys can shed would be MUCH appreciated

Hi! ericw616, welcome to 7F
Do you still have the 7 OS on the system? we'd need to know the model, Starter, basic, Home Home Premium, pro, ultimate?
How serviceable is the notebook? Does it run pretty well?
Did you save back-ups?
If you haven't done too much with it you might be able to recover some files by using a file recovery app like PhotoRec - CGSecurity To get some information back. I wouldn't use those files, but it might give you enough info to jog your memory to where you could remember the right driver, and then you could go back and re-download it to re-install.
The driver page for your NV78:
Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / NV Series / NV78
Intel's site, but there again you would need to know the make of OS to match up the proper drivers:
You could use this to identify your chipset :

Dear ericw 616, what i want to know is ,what version of Windows OS was on your pc,before you upgraded to Win.7. The problem may not be so much with your motherboard as it would be, suppose say you were on Win.XP before and the prob. started after the upgrade to Win.7! I hope you got my drift! I will suggest an easier method of identifying your MotherBoard(M-B)'s make! Kindly download Speccy from : piriform.com/speccy Please see the Toshiba laptop's (which i am using now)M-B's specs. in the snap below: So, what should be typed in the Google search bar should be something like "download compatible VGA driver(s) for ............M-B with windows 7(version)" . I have a desktop whose MB is INTEL"DG35EC" (3 series) and knowing that will help you tremendously!That's where Speccy enters stage left! Regards, Sreedhav
