XP Drivers on Windows 7?

I noticed that my laptop has XP drivers for Windows 7. Well at least for the interegated video drivers. Because once there was a notification that said "Display driver stopped responding and was recovered" and it said it is a XP Intel Graphics driver. Well dont worry about that but the thing is that I thought XP drivers dont work on Windows 7 64-bit.

I did not do that. The repair guy downloaded these drivers for me. I just want a simple answer to my question.

It's probably set in "Compatability" to XP.

I had to do the same in this program:

I dont think so because it is Windows 7 compatible.

That's what I was responding to.

Sorry if it doesn't answer your question.

Wait what let me get this straight. I do not have XP drivers and it is just running on XP compatibility? It does not change into Windows 7 Basic color scheme.
