Windows 7: Windows 7 unable to boot after installing Intel graphics driver

If you reinstalled why don't your Restore points work now? These are necessary to fall back on for situations exactly like this. Turn on System Protection and apportion more space if possible: System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage

You have the driver back to default placeholder given during install Standard VGA. Now the next step which apparently has been overlooked is to see what driver Windows 7 wants by enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then running all Important and Optional Updates except Bing. There may be patches needed as well as drivers to make your hardware run right.

Only after all Updates have been installed with requested restarts, and you go back to Check for Updates and there are no more offered, should any drivers missing in Device Manager or Standard VGA display be imported or updated from the Dell Support Downloads webpage for your tag number. I'm sorry but I don't see where that was done. If there isn't a Win7 driver then try Vista.

maxie/marsmimar,
I've give the clean reinstall a try and revert with the results.

Hi Gregrocker,
After reinstall, i only have the restore points specific to the latest installation. So, not sure if reverting to one of them will help. Also, another point to add is that, after a reinstall, before installing the dell drivers, i had tried updating the system via windows automatic update. The updates list did show the Intel HD graphics driver update, but installing those updates didnt help as i hit the same issue again.

Sorry for the delayed response. I dont have an original copy of Windows 7. I've been installing a Win 7 ISO followed by using RemoveWat software. For this case, would the clean install mentioned in : Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 work?

After you do the Clean Install following the steps in the Tutorial .. If you still have problems with the Graphics that should confirm that it is faulty ..
