Try using this if its an Intel chipset.

Intel® Driver Update Utility for graphics drivers

It should find the correct driver if its an Intel chipset.

"This graphics driver cloud not find compatible graphics hardware" That means you don't have a graphics card made by Nvida. You have something different, the drivers have to be exactly right.

Your missing drivers is resulting in poor resolution which is why it looks chunky.

Not sure why you would try a Nvidia or AMD driver for an Intel GPU. Anyway as mentioned above there is not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for that old Intel graphics,

Graphics — Older Intel® graphics controllers and Microsoft Windows 7* operating system

The best you're going to get is to use the last XP driver for it,

It will probably take installing it using compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

You will not get Aero as that GPU is just too old and doesn't have the necessary hardware built into it, but you should at least be able to set the proper resolutions and things look better.

I know what a chipset is but it's being dubbed a graphics chip.

For the older Intel chipsets/graphics, it was almost interchangeable as the graphics was included in most of them. As far as I know that covers anything from Intel with a "G" in the chipset model number.

So will those drivers work?

I've never had or dealt with an intergrated graphics system.

From what I seen, the XP drivers work no problem for those that have used them.
