i have a dell d610 latittude with a graphic controller intel gma900.I've installed windows 7 and it is working but i don't have video. In fact my computer is asking me for the video drivers. Where can I find the graphics controller drivers for an intel gma900 for windows 7 ultimate(32)?
I was considering putting Windows 7 on my girlfriend's old Dell D610 laptop. I recently put 2 gig of RAM in it total, but it is still running a 1.6GH Pentium M with integrated Intel graphics.
Basically, the only purpose I want for the laptop is to stream Netflix and Media Center onto her TV. I know I wont be able to enable Aero, but I just wanted to make sure that Win 7 and Media Center will run okay on a laptop that old.
I've tried many different beta builds of Windows 7 on my Dell Latitude D610 including and up to build 7229, but they all have the same problem. Everything works great except for the video driver that is downloaded through Windows Update. The video card driver that is downloaded through Windows Udate is the "Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family". Once the driver is installed, and the laptop restarted, everything looks great at the native 1400x1050 resolution until I click on the Start button or fire up IE8. Then the entire screen washes out I can't read anything. It's hard to explain, but basically it looks like the contrast and brightness is turned all the way up and makes the laptop unusuable. I tried downloading the drivers from Dell's website, but they are for WinXP only and I didn't have any luck installing them. I also tried going to Intel's website and looking for a Win7 beta driver for my video chipset but didn't find any.
The Dell I have I bought used off of eBay so I do not have any of the discs. When I turn it on this morning, it has the screen, "windows failed to start....". There was no recent hardware or software change. when I try to run launch start up repair it gives me this message. The system cannot find the path specified. (0x80070003) <clicked ok> start up repair cannot repair this computer automatically either>>>detail, Start up Reapri Offline. To use System Restore, you must specify which windows installation to restore. Windows cannot check for memory problems. When try to just select Start Windows Normally, it begins and when it gets to the glowing Windows 7 Logo, it freezes with the 4 glowing windows boxes. When I hit F12 and try to go into safemode, it shows a huge list of drivers and then just freezes. I was on something else that I now can't remember and it said "no diagnostic utility partition found." Like I said, I don'thave a CD for this computer.
when i turn on the computer the 1st screen i see it the dell screen and i can see the loading bar load. after it completes it load it goes to a blank black screen with the courser flashing in the upper left corner and thats it.
Is there any way I can have Aero on my laptop?? I cannot give you the specs of the video card because it calls it "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" and I have no specific info.. there is also something titles "Video Controller" but it doesn't have the drivers for it.
how will I know whether graphics card drivers are installed on my Dell Inspiron 15R 5520.This laptop comes with Dedicated built-in AMD Radeon 7670M 1GB graphics card.I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed.
