Windows 7: PCI/Integrated Graphics Problem

I do appreciate the time you're spending on this!

Attached are the files you asked for. 'PCI' is with Windows running on the HD2400 and 'Internal' is with Windows running on the Internal Graphics.

I have tried the HD2400 in both PCI slots and it makes no difference.

I know there's no official support beyond XP, but I actually got the stock system running Windows 7 really well! The only issue I had at all was that, because I was using an XDDM display driver for the IGP9100, the graphics performance was not great (though perfectly OK for stuff like web browsing and MS Office) and of course there was no Aero.

I thought that adding in a decent(ish) PCI graphics card would fix this problem for very little extra money, but that was where it started to get messy...

Change the view so it shows devices by type. Then post another screenshot of system devices. And another of display adapters.

You're welcome.

Sorry, I thought that that would be the most helpful way of presenting the information you asled for. Here you are again as 'Devices by type'.

At this stage every non-essential device is still disabled in the BIOS.

Cheers,
Ian.

Lets get back to the onboard chip for a sec. Can you for now take the 2400 out? and see if we can get the onboard working? Have you tried the driver form the link in my previous post?

Hi Ba5ik

I have already got the onboard driver working, using the same XDDM driver that you found. It seems stable and, even though I only get 1.0/1.9 on the Windows Experience Index, performs well enough for web browsing, word processing and the like.

For 35/US$58, though, it seemed worthwhile trying a more modern PCI graphics card in the hope of a bit more graphics performance and being able to turn on the Aero eye-candy. That was how ended up where I am!

The BIOS IRQ options are "Assign IRQ to PCI VGA card if card requests it" which is set to 'YES'.

Other than that I can only set IRQs 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 14 and 15 to either 'AVAILABLE' ("To be used by PCI/PnP devices") or 'RESERVED' ("For use by legacy ISA devices". This seems odd because the system doesn't support ISA...). All of these are set to 'AVAILABLE'.

I appreciate the assistance with trying to fix this up but it makes things slightly more difficult and most likely confusing for OP.

-------------------
Ian,

See in your second screenshot the error for pci to pci bridge?

Well that's why this isn't working for you.

Update your chipset drivers from the latest offered by manufacturer of motherboard. Also do a bios update to latest. Don't mess with any settings except to make sure Plug and Play OS is set to yes. Perhaps disable ports not in use like serial, parallel, floppy etc....will be helpful.

You should be good to go after. Install the video driver again if needed here.

Let me know. Post further screenshots if you need.
