Windows 7: Intel - Graphical Aero Glitches

by using vista drivers do you mean going to your computer vendor's website and downloading their drivers?

or is there something you can do in windows 7 to enable vista compatibility or something?

My computer vendor's drivers wouldn't install because they detected Windows 7 and said they weren't compatible. But I went to Intel's site and got the generic drivers and they work fine. It glitches every once in a while but it's very rare now.

Mobile Intel(R) 45 Express Chipset Series Processor to DRAM Controller - 2A40

Sorry for the noob question. Can someone tell me where I can find the generic driver for that? Google and Intel's search engine yields no result.

Hi all,

I'm getting glitches as well - weird lines in the title bar, the task bar flickers, and when it gets really bad, the text goes all blurry until I resize the screen (minimise/maximise). I disable/enable aero and that seems to have helped.

The drivers listed in this thread are no longer available - I've tried intel drivers, and get the same kind of problems.

Any ideas?

It happens randomly, usually when a window is being opened, moved, or maximized, etc. It's fixed by restarting Aero.

I assume it's a graphic driver problem with my Mobile Intel(R) 45 Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.1) card.

Just wondering if anyone else had this happen.

Oh, and it gets worse with time if I don't restart Aero...

I had the same error with build 7100. The intel driver was dated sometime in February 2009, I didn't take note of the version unfortunately.
It helps a little installing the Vista driver. Instead of the glitches, the screen goes black and then on again and I get a message saying that the driver crashed and was restarted. This happends every now and then at random times. I haven't figured out what triggers this.

Question is, isn't there a new driver from intel yet? Maybe some beta-hard-to-get-driver? :-)

The driver just updated from Windows Update. This helped alot, but the problem still exists, for example when a program is "not responding" and I have also tickled Chrome into showing up this way.

I've had the same happen with the WDDM 1.0 driver from Windows Update. I eventually has to download the Vista driver from Intel's website and install it with compatability mode for Vista. Windows will give a message stating that the driver is older than the 1 in use but just click yes, it worked like a charm for me.
