Windows 7: SP1 Intel Graphics Problem

SP1 Intel Graphics Problem

Dell Inspiron 1545 2GB RAM, x64, W7 Home Premium:

I installed SP1 today and everything appears fine except in my programs/features list.

Before the update, it showed 33 programs installed @ 1.78GB. No the list shows, 33 programs installed @ 37.3GB!

Looking at the list, "Intel Media Graphics Accelerator Driver" shows 37.1GB!??

My computer works fine and in the "My Computer" page is says, "OS C-Drive 197GB free of 218GB"

Is this a Dell thing like reporting the wrong program size, or is it real?

What should I do if anything?

Hello there, DBone. it could be an error, nothing to worry about.

But if it's messing around with your head, you could just uninstall the driver and install the latest version from the intel website. or your manufacturer's website

Most likely is a mis-reading. if the used space on the HDD hasn't change (besides from the SP1 files), then everything is alright.

Okay mate, I have a solution to this problem as it was bugging me as well and its incredibly simple.

Obviously you have an intel graphics chip on the motherboard of you laptop so go to intels site: DIRECT LINK TO AUTODETECT

... Run the auto detect (say yes to all download prompts and if nothing happens refresh the page a couple of times)

Next to Graphics Driver it will likely say update available (note that Windows Update does not pick this up).

Click on the update to download the software...

Run it and restart....

Check your 'Uninstall program list'

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver is now 74.2 Megs and makes sense...

Hope this helps everyone else

Thanks for that, but it didn't work. The results showed that I have a custom Dell driver that Intel couldn't update.

Hi DBone, what exactly happened on the Intel site, it can be a bit tricky to get the autodetect to work and it requires quite a few refreshes after allowing the activex control permission

failing that, if its custom drivers from Dell thats an extra pain... the only solution would be to try and update from the dell website, but they may not have updated the driver... worth a punt though

I ended up uninstalling the driver and then Windows Update found, and installed the updated driver and all is well.....Thanks!
