Windows 7: Windows 7 keeps installing its own driver restart

Windows 7 keeps installing its own driver restart

Hey guys, I've read a bunch of posts of this happening to people too but it doesn't seem like there was a permanent solution to any of them. I just installed windows 7 on a dell dimension 3000 and im using the onboard video. Everytime i reboot it wants to automatically install the "Standard VGA Display Driver" even though I uninstall it and install the Intel Display Driver that works much better and actually plays movies. I even moved the display.inf out of the windows folder but now when i restart it still trys to install another driver over the one i have and just says that it cant find the driver for the device. And since I cant install the drivers then plug the device in, i'm kind of stuck in a rut right now. Any suggestions? I really appreciate it.

Hi cland410 and welcome to the forums. Download this driver and see if it installs without any issues. Download Link: http://download.cnet.com/Video-Intel-845-G-GL-Integrated-Video-Driver-Version-A01/3000-2108_4-106223.html

That is a bigger problem with the older Win7 builds. The newer builds do not have this problem anymore. Moving to one of the newer builds after 7200 will fix it.

Win7 should be seeing your Intel drivers and not attempting to install the VGA's, but like I mentioned earlier it's a bigger problem with the older Win7 builds.
