Hi bunny, welcome to the forums.

You could try here - Download Locations - once downloaded, run the exe file with compatability mode for XP and see what happens.

Hope this helps

That's ok, not a problem give what i've said a try and see what happens. It should also give you better control over your graphics capabilities as well. If you get the annoying message about the driver being older just accept & click yes. I've done the same with my 945 chipset.

Hopefully Windows Update may even recognise a new driver after the install.

Once downloaded if you right-click the exe file and choose the 'Compatability' tab you can choose to allow the program to run as if you were running Windows XP. This is handy if you are having any sort of driver issue with older hardware.

i believe if you can get to the setup.exe then you can also choose compatability mode for that
