Windows 7: Which driver for Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express graphics contro

Which driver for Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express graphics contro

I have installed Windows 7 (32-bit) on a Samsung X20 laptop computer with a Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express graphics controller. Obviously there is no Windows 7 driver for this controller, so the standard VGA driver is installed instead.

The Windows XP driver for the graphic card first installs under Windows 7 without any error messages, but when restart the machine the system tells me that it can't install the graphics driver.

What is the best way of using the 915GM/GMS,910GML graphics controller under Windows 7 - stick with the standard VGA driver?

Did you install the driver with compatibility mode? did you try this one http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...=1862&lang=eng


to do compatibility install right click the installer>properties>compatibility>check XP (SP3)>install it.


You may have to do it in safe mode

... worked ;-)

I had to run the installation program in XP (SP3) compatibility mode, and then it was no problem at all. Thanks a lot.

Pls Explain

Hi i have the same samsung X20 laptop..
have upgraded the hard drive and ram alone..
i tried installing windows 7 on the machine..

all the drivers were perfect except for the display/graphics driver..
i was not able to get the transparency effect on it..
is it possible to get that and aero working by the compatiblity installation of the same??

Did you try running Windows Update first? Many common drivers like that are available.

even if you get the driver it does not support aero. so i dont think there is a way to get aero on such old graphics chip.
oldest intel chip to support aero is GMA950 (945G)
