I have a gForce 7300 that works ok for me :)

Windows 7.64 Ult.

I have found a solution for this problem. I have a Dell Dimension (with a few upgrades, CPU, RAM) Got the xp graphics driver to run and it is working very well in Win7.32 for me. You should try this before going to buy a card. The built in 845 g will probably clock out better then the expansion card because of the PCI limitation. If you are still having this problem let me know and i can walk you through the driver install.

No Areo but video plays very well. note: Don't expect to play games with one of these machines today. But it make a great rig for some basic web stuff, word processing.

I used the win2k_xp14103 file. You should be able to get it here.〈=eng
If the link does not work just punch "Intel 845 driver" into google. This was the latest xp driver that Intel had.

Download the file and unzip. Extract the file to desktop. Right click on it and select Properties. Go to the compatibility tab and select to run in"XP Service Pack 2" compatibility mode, then check the run as Admin box at the bottom and click ok. Now right click the icon again and select Run as Admin(just to make sure) and let the driver install. You should be good to go after the Reboot. note... make sure to use XP SP2 and NOT SP3.

This worked for me on a Win7 32 bit install. Hope it helps you too.
