    HP Pavilion dv4000 - Video Controller

    Hello, can anyone help me to find a driver for my video controller? I've just upgraded to windows 7 from xp, and HP doesnt seem to make drivers for my old laptop anymore, though windows 7 is running pretty smoothly! I've been able to find all of the missing drivers, like the one for my soundcard, and install them either in vista or xp compatibility mode, but I can't seem to find this last one. I read in another thread that the hardware IDs might be helpful. Well, here are the hardware ids listed for my video controller (I'm still not even sure what the video controller does):

    If anyone could help me with this, I would certainly appreciate it.

    Oh, one other thing, while I'm posting here, my track pad works to click and move the pointer around the screen, but the scrolling functionality has gone. Anyone have any suggestions on this one? Thanks.

    You might just be out of luck I'm afraid, unless someone else can suggest something...

    Those are the same IDs as on my tablet PC and it's running an Intel 915GM chipset, which means (1) NO aero, period, and (2) get the video drivers from Microsoft Update Catalog.

    The driver I have installed is, dated 1/13/07 and, as far as I know, that's the most current available.

    Hey lr1101, I seem to recall downloading a ton of different drivers, but I don't think I ever did get a proper video controller driver. Everything works properly on my laptop now except for transferring the video from the laptop screen to an external screen, like my TV via the S-Video port. This is a shame, because I found that really useful. oh well... I'm watching a lot of DVDs on my laptop screen these days. If you do come across a driver that works, pease post a link to it here. Also, does anyone else with this laptop have it overheat and shut down a lot? Mine has started doing this a lot in the past six months. I suppose it's starting to show its age.

    It might not hurt to get a can of canned air and blow out the fans and exhaust ports as I'm sure it has collected its share of bust bunnies over the years.Also a laptop cooling pad may not be a bad idea at this time to help extend it's life span.
    If ussing it on a flat surface I've found propering it up on even a couple of paint stir sticks helps with the air flow and keeps mine cooler. Hope some of these ideas might help. Fabe

    thanks for the quick responses. After a couple hours of looking for a driver I finally found one that worked, here's a link: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
    Just extract and run the install.bat. Hope it works for you too.

    Thanks for the suggestions thefabe, I think I'll try the compressed air. The laptop still works fine otherwise. I think it's crazy to get a new laptop every 4 or 5 years, when your old one just needs a little TLC. Also, thank you very much for the link lr1101, I'll try this out when I get home tonight.
