Windows 7: Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Driver for Windows 7 -FINAL SOLUTION

12 Jun 2010   #11


[2] Intel(R) Graphics Controller (Windows)(Sleep Mode Fixed)(Thx to pc84)

Download 1 [ << download this one ]

Hello, the driver lins is broken, where i can find this modifyed driver?
I have 82852 Intel graphic card.

With best regards,

Just checked the links in coderiu's original post, and the link in your post, cotkas, and they're both the same (as well they should be) and they're both working. So maybe something on your end is causing a problem. Just so as you know what to expect, the link will take you to a CNET download page for win2k_xp1361.exe

Hope this helps some.

Still no go!!

Hi Coderiu, still no joy but what I have found out is that the changes I make to the vgapnp.sys file don't remain even though it saves fine. No matter what I put in front of the MZ it gets lost. The file saves OK. I had to grant permissions in windows using the security tab and that gets lost too as I could not do it from the command prompt. Very confused

Hey audrinabo,

The first thing you need to make sure of is that you are editing the right file. So, to be certain that you are dealing with the right windows folder (because for different reasons, you might have more than one windows folder), use this generic way to reach exact/right file: %WINDIR%\System32\drivers\vgapnp.sys
So to go to the folder just type: %WINDIR%\System32\drivers\ (You can copy it and paste in the run dialog box for example or through the windows explorer's address bar)

then go to the file vgapnp.sys and do the following (the attach picture shows the steps as well):

1- Make a copy of the file vgapnp.sys in the same folder. So just copy and paste in the same folder. This will save you sometimes later since you do not have to modify it back to its original state.
2- Make another copy -say on the desktop-
3- Right click on the file -the one on the desktop- and open it with the Notepad. Add whatever you want at the beginning - I added xx- then save -> close. (You can open it again to make sure your changes have been saved)
4- Drag it back or copy it and paste it back to the original location (%WINDIR%\System32\drivers\) and select Move and Replace when Windows prompts with options.

Then just do the same steps in my original post and that should work. Then when you are done, go delete (vgapnp.sys) and rename (vgapnp - copy.sys) to the original file name (vgapnp.sys) -- you got the idea.

You can, as well, do the command line way if you want using the path I gave you (%WINDIR%\System32\drivers\vgapnp.sys) instead of (c:\windows\System32\drivers\vgapnp.sys)

Hope that helps .. Share the good news with us :)

Thank you all, this driver works - win2k_xp1361.exe
It can be downloaded from Intel website.
Only thing that i have wide LCD panel but this driver supports only 1024*768 maximum resolution. But i will try to modify driver and this fact that driver works is better than nothing! :)

Hi guys

I'm absolutely over the moon - I have just got it to work. After a day of trying to figure it out, Coderiu and Lexxion's method worked perfectly. Thanks a whole lot!!!!

BTW I found it is crucial to use the 2nd download mentioned above.

Windows 7 Enterprise

In case this is useful for anyone:

My old tablet laptop system-Gateway M275 with Pentium3 2.0 Ghz and 1Gb memory with 82855 etc. Chipset. Installed Windows 7 enterprise 32-bit. Drivers for everything installed except video. I tried many solutions but was not willing to try too many extreme measures. I could only get the standard VGA drive to install. Other attempts always reverted to that after restart. I found the old gateway win2K/XP driver I downloaded it, extracted it but used the manual install method. The Driver stuck and I have snap, shake, Dual output and extended desktop via driver and keyboard and multiple resolutions. No Aero, but I didn't expect that.

Overall I lost tablet button compatability and I cannot rotate screen. Am also running Office 2010 nicely. I was shocked this all worked and I was just testing this out of curiosity. I might keep it as it runs very nicely this way. This is an older driver than noted by others but seems to work well.
