That's an old graphics chip. Intel isn't even developing Win 7 video drivers for newer boards using 965G.

You may be forced to buy an add-on video card.

Hello OlegWasHere, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

I am using a Dell D505 Laptop with the 855 chipset. I found a Vista compatable driver at Dell that works just fine, even though it is older than yours. To install it I unzipped the file into a folder on my hard drive, used Device Manager to update the chipset driver, and manually selected the "inf" file in the above mentioned folder. After a reboot, I had to update the video driver from the video card properties.

(If that sounds confusing, step one was for the chipset drivers which included a video driver; step two updated the video driver itself. Took two steps.)

Go to Dell Support and find a Vista compatible chipset driver for your Dell computer. Download it and if you need further help getting it installed, just let us know?

Cheers!
Robert

Sure, I can try!

Please use the Private Messaging and if you are willing (I am very trustworthy) send me the 7 digit service tag number off of your computer (the rest of the world doesn't need to know what that number is). That will make it possible to find the exact driver for your computer?

Hey, no problem. Don't worry about it. There are several ways to get to PM. Try going to my profile (click on my avatar), find the Contact Info tab and send a PM. Let me know if that doesn't work for you?

Oleg:

I haven't found a driver yet and it is getting late for me. I will look more tomorrow.

However, I found a post that said you could enter the BIOS and increase the on-board video memory to 8MB. Please try that (if you haven't already) and let me know if it helps?

Good night!
