but some friends says to me that frequently graphic cards work the same; someone use this card with windows 7?

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

You haven't supplied enough details to identify your onboard graphics, but I suppose that there are no drivers newert than XP for it.

However, you may be able to use those under Windows 7. They won't support Aero Glass effects, but you can live without those.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I had a computer with this video chipset. It worked under Windows Vista and 7 32-bit using the XP Drivers available for it. I can't vouch for 64-bit editions of Vista and 7 as I never tried them with this card.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
via s3g unichrome pro igp

So I have an Abit ip-95 MB with this same card integrated. When I installed Win 7 Ultimate 32bit, it worked fine. I never noticed it put in a standard VGA driver though. About a week ago I installed something that required direct x and it [dxdiag.exe] said my graphics card didn't support it so I looked into it. I saw the standard VGA driver and decided to get the driver from abit. I installed an outdated driver from abit which works fine until I try play a video. It then hoses up everything and makes the system run choppy after that. Dxdiag.exe says its running and the card is recognized correctly though. So I rolled back to the standard vga. I'm thinking to go by any decent video card at this point, unless someone has any ideas. The adapter version on abit's site says VIA P4M890 and the driver says its good up to Vista. Any help would be appreciated!

Win 7 Ultimate x64

ittek, welcome to the Seven Forums.

There is a slightly newer version of the driver for it here,

VIA Drivers Download - VIA Technologies, Inc.

From the dropdowns select,

Microsoft Windows
Windows XP
Integrated Graphics
P4M890 UniChrome Pro

XP drivers are it as there are no Vista or Windows 7 drivers for that integrated video, as Via dropped support for it and never made them.
