Windows 7: Intel GMA Graphics Processor with Windows 7 Ultimate

Intel GMA Graphics Processor with Windows 7 Ultimate

I have an old HP laptop (dv4000) with an Intel GMA 900 graphics processor, running Windows 7 Ultimate. When I try to run a windows game, like Solitaire, I get an alert that there is no driver for the graphics processor. I have heard that driver support for these old processors is limited. I looked at the Intel website, but for the GMA 900 they only have drivers for Windows XP. Any ideas? Thanks

Chad welcome to the Seven Forums.

That XP driver is the one you need, as there will never be a Windows 7 driver for it as Intel has dropped all support for it a long time ago. Not sure if it will install as normal or not. If it doesn't run it in compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

and then it should install no problem.
