Windows 7: Intel Integrated 845g Chipset Drivers

06 Feb 2009   #11

Intel Extreme Graphics 855m

I finally got my video driver to work with 1024 x 768. You have to go to the one that windows creates by default in device manager and manually add the driver, click on have disk or (let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer), then you will tell it where the inf file is. I can't believe how fast win7 is over vista on this old machine! (Dell Latitude D500 1.3ghz w/ Intel Extreme Graphics 855m)

XP and Win7 RC

sorry for reviving a old thread, but the same problem applies to this desktop (eMachines T2385).
After a minute or 2, the computer just freezes, and the only thing I can do is a hard rest..... a bad thing to do......)

To everybody on here using the intel 82865g chipset

I found the solution to the intel 82865g chipset driver issue. I have the file that you need. If you need it send me your email address and I can send it to you. when you get it, youll have to run it in windows xp service pack 3 compatability mode in order for it to work. ive tested it on 29 different machines in my computer shop and it has worked on all of them. my email is [email protected]

I don't think there is a native Vista or Win7 driver for this chipset.
I have a Dell Dimension 2350 which has an Intel 845GL chipset according to the Dell documentation.

After a bit of a struggle with the actaul installation I was disappointed to find myself in a low resolution VGA situation. I could tell the |OS was operating well with everything else.

msterlings advice has really delivered the goods - thanks.

I installed the XP chipset package to an SD card then booted to Win7 navigated to the download and right -clicked . I chose properties and clicked both Windows XP SP2 and run as administrator. I then ran it - I did not get the error message that msterling experienced. I clicked the various boxes as the install took place.

I rebooted into a lovely looking 1024x900 resolution. It seems to be holding up nicely. Once I got the BSOD - I had just set up a new user and then went to my SD card and used Windows Live Photo gallery to run a slide show of the images on the card and it went BSOD. I haven't duplicated that exactly but near duplication haven't caused any problems Windows MoLive Movie Maker told me I didn't meet the minum hardware requirements so that one is out of the picture (sorry!).

It will be mainly for viewing Flash and browsing- I am watching the Wimbledon Men's Final as I type.

It will be more than adequate for most of our normal computing needs.

I am not sure why Service Pack 2 should be the compatibilty option I was just following what mrdek had tried.

It is working so well albeit in "Windows Basic" - a lot nippier than my other desktop that runs Aero ok. Though I thinks that's down to the better processor on the Dell 2350.

Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel(R) 82845G resolution problems

Intel(R) 82845G runing 7 Ultimate
My comp wont allow me to adust monitor settings. I have tried updating the drivers a thousand different ways.

Display Adapter just shows a standard VGA. I tried to download the drivers for vista but i get the message that my resolution is not high enough to run the setup. (Really, thats the problem im trying to fix)

Do I really need to go buy a graphics card or am I just missing something?
Any advice would be great
