Intel® Driver Update Utility for graphics drivers - Check for the latest driver

There are numerous reports across the web addressing this issue. You will not be able to run Aero, but you will be able to overcome your current display issue.

Update your chipset driver.

You can get a good video card for this machine for ~ $25

You may need to do a forced install. IF AND ONLY IF the Dell automated driver install fails, from device manager, navigate to C:\Dell\Drivers\xxxxx\ and select the appropriate INF.

The previous posts are basically the same thing in simpler terms. My friends just type faster. Get the drivers. Attempt to install them. Report.

I could not install any of the drivers. I searched around and other people with the same graphic card have similar problems. i could not install the drivers because when it asked for what operating system I wanted there was no Windows 7 or Vista.

Can someone recommend me a good graphics card that can support Aero and is relatively cheap?
