In addition, any video editing software quits with an error that graphics hardware is not up to par (e.g. Roxio and even Windows live movie maker beta).
I decided to download the Vista 64 bit drivers
from Intel (version 15.8.3 - 184.108.40.2064) and installed them (ignoring the error message that I have newer drivers installed already - Pre-release WDDM 1.1). It actually works, I get the Intel graphics system icon as well. I have no problems with the drivers and video playback and all of the video editing software packages work as well.
Of course, now I am getting an optional driver update on MS update for the video card.
anybody else has this problem with the gma950 drivers and is there a solution that works with the WDDM 1.1 Intel pre-release drivers for Windows 7? Hope to see a fix from Intel for this soon. Just doesn't feel right to run this with an outdated driver for a different OS
Hi Der Ausgewanderte I use Nvidia drivers, the drivers installed by 7 are also faulty and I get the newest from Nvidia.
Point is, just like the drivers you have installed, they work
you are not alone and I am sure that Microsoft will fix this for the RTM
