Windows 7: Intel 845 video driver

31 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7

I had already used a bios patch and may be that was the reason. \i formatted my PC nad reinstalled windows 7, and used this method. The windows took this driver and diplay improved a bit but I cannot still view display as 1280 x 1024. Movies are also not running properly, they are still cracking.
Anything else I can do?

You should be able to view screen at 1280 x 1024. I have it running at 1280x768 on my 14" laptop. As for the movies I noticed that when using Media player maximizing or minimizing the screen during watching freezes the movie. What you do just maximize the player before hitting play and everything should be fine.

Remember this is 855GM that is not supported by Windows 7 by default.

There is also no Aero theme when using this driver.

Btw, you have not options to choose 1280x1024?

Check Device Manager if there are no exclamation marks on the video driver.

You can also run 'dxdiag' from command prompt and see if the are no conflicts. I see no reason to not be able to run at laptop's native resolution if the driver installed successfully.
