Dont worry bout the others as one is up to date and the other isnt intel i would assume!

You may want to load safemode with networking to D/L the drivers.
That's something i will do when warranty will be ran off.

Looks for coolbyte the intel driver is missing or uninstalled...or not for his machine.

Hi
I've a Packard Bell laptop as well (easynote ST86 T055) and I guess I've the same problem as you had. I just got a new game and after installing when I start it up, I briefly get a black screen and next I'm back on my desktop. I've got te problem that I can't update my graphics driver neither. Because I'm not good with computers I would like to ask if it's possible to give me step by step what I should do because I'm scared to mess up my computer... (one thing don't know if it matters but i'm running vista but ended up here i'm search for answers)

thx

Sorry for the late answer...

Well, very hard to get the switchable graphics up to date without the manufacturer update. The main reason is that the manufacturer customize the drivers for the both graphics cards and you will loose the ability to manualy switch the graphics right clicked on desktop and the ability to let the system do it itself.

That's mean it is possible, but be aware of this, it is one or the other...
In consequences it will not provide the Power Management for those laptops and don't be surprised if your battery runs out faster than usual. As another way, manage your power setting yourself.

BIOS is locked for most of the time on laptops and you will have only the option of "discrete" or "switchable".
For this, you will have to grab somewhere a modified Bios (modded bios) of the actual version installed on your machine to unlock those features, if you want the system to boot as for exemple only on the "Ati Card" or only on the "Intel Card".

I know some would prefer their Ati Card and some would for Intel GMA for their proper way using it.

I'm just learned that my Intel graphics chipset was linked to my motherboard chipset and therefore be aware to update aswell. Looks recommended, it's easy to mess up the all thing without noticed it. That's mean when i'm updating my Ati card (from manufacturer drivers), it looks after the motherboard chipset, if the driver is up to date and writes the files that way.

In conclusion, everything is possible but not without having choosing and being aware of the consequences. I would not recommend a bootable modded bios to someone in anyways as an easy thing to do.

So sorry to sort of hijack this thread after so long but i'm facing a dilemma and i didn't want to create another thread for what might be a dumb question. I currently have a new Compaq Presario CQ35 214tx laptop and i'm installing the drivers for it after a new installation of win 7 (x64).

At the HP website, under the listed graphics drivers for my computer, they show both the nvidia one and the 'mobile intel 4 series express chipset family' driver. My question is 'do i install both or just the nvidia one since under my specifications i apparently have a 512mb dedicated Nvidia Geforce 105m GPU?' Would installing both cause any potential problems?

Sorry for the noob question and thanks in advance!

If they do listed both it is because you might have a Switchable Graphics Card NviDia + Intel GMA.

That's mean when you're wired powered your using the NviDia Card and when you are on battery powered it using the Intel GMA.

Normally, you should only update the NviDia Card because those are customized Drivers by Mfg, including the Intel Drivers inside the package.

Now, as you can see on HP Site:

The Intel drivers are Version:8.15.10.1883. 25. A 32Mb
And the NviDia Drivers are Version:8.15.11.8644. A 176,64Mb (more up to date)

Go on the Nvidia Geforce G105M Graphics Driver and this will update aswell (partially) the Intel GMA.
