Windows 7: Intel Integrated 845g Chipset Drivers

Intel Integrated 845g Chipset Drivers

Hey everybody! I'm running Windows 7 on an Emachines t2862, which has an Intel Integrated Chipset (845g, "Itel Extreme Graphic", specifically).
I've tried installing the XP drivers using the installation as well as the tutorial floating around the forums for installing XP graphic drivers. Both caused Windows to crash shortly after booting. I had plenty of time to open a few programs, but about 45 seconds after booting, Windows simply freezes (mouse included).
I had to boot into safemode and roll the driver back to the standard VGA driver to fix it.

Does anybody have any tips? Thanks!

You should try using Vista Drivers for it if you can find them else you will just be stuck with the default Windows Drivers.

845 Drivers

I went HERE and downloaded the XP drivers from Intel. Failed the first time with a "wrong operating system error" but the installer then offered to try again with adjusted compatibility settings. Second try was successful. I can now use the "full" power of the 82845G integrated video on my Win7 test box. Seems OK so far.

I don't think there is a native Vista or Win7 driver for this chipset.

I've got Windows 7 going on a dell dimension 4600c with intel 82865g integrated graphics, and learned real quick that the XP drivers run fine....IF you run them in xp compatability and administrator mode.

Hmm It had the same problem.
I ran the installer in XP (sp2) compatibility and as administrator. The installer seemed to work fine, and it rebooted, but after booting Windows simply freezes after about 45 seconds.

Something must be different. My PC is a Dell Optiplex GX80. It is not a powerful machine with a Celeron 1.8gHz, 1GB RAM and 40GB HD. Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller is what appears in device manager. Driver version is 6.14.10.4342 dated 6/21/2005. I D/L'ed direct from Intel at the link in my previous post. It could be something different in your hardware. Can you change the size of graphics memory in your bios settings? It might make a difference. Did you install any other drivers? It is a beta so you might consider installing Win7 from scratch and try the driver again.

I just installed Win7 and the driver today but it has not crashed and runs smoothly with the basic stuff I have tried so far.

Thanks for the tips!
The Graphic buffer size is already 8MB, which is the maximum my BIOS will allow.
The machine I'm using is an eMachines T2862 (also not a very powerful machine) with a Celeron 2.66ghz and 768mb of RAM. The default specs are here: eMachines T2862 PC Desktop - Product details and features - DealTime

Hmm I actually just realized I have the 845GV chipset, but Intel is convinced it uses the same driver install. That must be what's different.

I'm using a Dell Latitude D400 - Pentium M 1.4GHz, 1GB RAM and integrated Intel graphics with the 830 adaptor.

There seem to be several people with working methods here but I've not seen this one so here it is...

I downloaded the RAR of the Vista driver from this site.

Installed it manually through Device manager and was left with two adaptors - the Intel one and the standard VGA. I only had basic VGA resolution.

After a reboot I went to the standard VGA device and updated the driver choosing from a list. I chose the same driver so that I had two instances of Intel (R) 8252/8255 GM/GME Graphics Controller (MS Corp - XDDM).

Another reboot later and I have full native resolution. No Aero obviously but it beats VGA mode.

Plus it seems stable so far at 15 minutes in. After a reboot it's also holding the driver.
