Windows 7: Intel 4 Chipset not working...Does not support my version of windows.

Intel 4 Chipset not working...Does not support my version of windows.

Hello Everyone. I'm new here, and I've been trying at this "Graphics" stuff for about a week now, reading forum after forum, and visiting link after link. I wanted to play a game, but the OpenGL was only version 1.4, and required 2.0 . After tons of research, I realized that I needed to update my drivers. I tried using NVidia, and after tons and tons of errors, that didn't work...After more research, I figured out that my Display Adapters is Intel G33/G31 Express Chipset Family.... so I tried downloading an Intel Media Accelerator, which would give me OpenGL 2.0, but when I tried to use Setup.exe, I would get "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software", so after MORE research, I tried to use Device Manager>Display adapters>Upgrade Driver Software>Install Manually>Let Me pick>Have Disk> and then i used the ".inf folder". But then it says, "The driver selected for this device does not support this version of windows"......So, needless to say...I'm stuck....My computer is Windows 7 Home Premium x64. My Vendor I.D. is 0x8086 and my Device I.D. is 0x29C2....what can I do to make this work? Is there something I have to buy? I hope someone can help because I've been at this for a while.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

According to this page...
Desktop graphics controllers — OpenGL* compatibility

It might not support OpenGL 2.0... I'm not really sure, the wording is weird.
You might also try to run in Vista SP2 compatibility mode. Because, as I see, this chipset is pretty old (2007) and the last drivers for the G31/G33 were for Vista. Vista drivers works with Windows 7. (oh and, try compatibility mode with the .exe)

Try it like that. And give us feedback


Duuuuuuurp. The driver does exist for Windows 7. Just be sure to pick the right version for your oprating system. What you are probably trying to do is that you are trying to install the 32-bit driver for 64-bit Windows.
