Windows 7 is a Graphic memory eater

When i was running win xp sp3, my internal graphics were..96 MB with 3D acceleration on..( I am on Intel 82865 G Graphic controller )

But after switching to Win 7 internal graphics are shown as 8 bit(dxdiag.exe)
with all accelerations disabled..unable to play any game or do anything with Google earth..

Any solution to this problem, besides adding a new video card ??

If they have one for Vista, you may try that.
Just run it under compatability mode for Vista.

Also, be sure to get the correct version, 32 or 64bit.

Also, you're most probably NOT going to get Aero with that chipset -- no matter WHAT you do.

I believe that the first Intel graphics chipset to actually support Aero was the 945 series.

Even the 915 series does NOT support Aero, so yours, being older, it not goint to either.

Just passing this along to save you the trouble of coming back and asking how to get Aero support for your chipset.
