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 Windows 7 builds. The newer builds do not have this problem anymore. Moving to one of the newer builds after 7200 will fix it.

Windows 7 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 Windows 7 builds.
