Windows 7: Installing video driver for Intel 855 Centrino Chipset

16 Feb 2010   #171

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Dual monitors

Thanks Lexxion! I have everything working on my dell d505, with one exception

I have my laptop on a dock and hooked into a secondary monitor via vga. Any suggestions? It is displaying dual display, and when trying to enable the secondary monitor and extend to it the screen refreshes but it keeps going back to dual display instead of extended.

thanks again!

I know I posted here before, but that was build 7100. Naturally had to upgrade versions later down the line. Anyway, the method I used for 7100 didn't work sadly.

Used Lexxion's, and got the same thing as Jcrisp. Works with one monitor, but not a second. I'm guessing it has to be cause of the modified driver, it needs another. I applied another driver to the VGA controller, but having issues with it. Haven't been able to get any long term fix.

To Lexxion: please update your guide with the following.

Even if permission has been grant I am not able to save vgapnp.sys once edited. You must be in "safe mode" to be able to edit and save it. (Windows 7 RTM + updates)

To the other I have a question: I have been able to install the drivers on my Tablet Acer C302XMi which uses the intel 855GME chipset. I am not able to rotate the screen. Have you any solution for me ?

Edit: I have followed this thread and applied the istruction and screen rotation worked.

Only one last thing is missing: the special buttons of the keyboard like "enable wireless" "rotate the screen" are not working.

edit : I've just fixed the problem :

For those who have sleep problem (black screen after resume, for exemple on my Vaio the backlight of the screen stay off) after installing the xp drivers, here is the solution :
Just install the instead ! And the sleep will work properly ! (I have tried other drivers and more recents too but they always failed)

Your guide was the only one which worked on my Portege M300. I have tried many different drivers and guides, but your one worked fine for me.

Any of your guys having problems to adjust the brightness on your laptop?

I installed the toshiba tools but I am still not able to change the brightness of my screen.
