Can't get Windows 7 driver for Intel 865G Graphics Chip Accelerated

    Question

  • Hi,
    My Intel 865G Graphics Chip Accelerated won't allow me to get more than a 640/480 screen resolution, and I can't find a driver supported by Windows 7 (32bit). My computer is a Dell Dimension 3000, with an Intel Celeron CPU 2.66 GHz processor.

    Could you please help me ?

    Thanks a lot.

  • Hi,

    I have the same problem with my graphics chip.  Mine is an Intel 910 GL.  When I installed Windows 7, it installed the standard VGA driver.  But when I tried installing my Intel Drivers, it told me it could not install it.  Tried deleting their driver that they installed, but after they delete it, it makes you reboot your PC and once it had rebooted, it reinstalls it again, so no chance in installing the right driver.  But my drivers worked well with windows XP. 

    So because of this, I have reinstalled Windows XP because everything was slow and alot of things would not work with windows 7 because of the graphics accelerator of graphics card is not compatible with windows 7.  Wish it would of, I really liked the new windows.

    Hope someone in the same situation found a way to fix this problem.

    Good luck to you!

  • I turn off aerosnap, else I get freezes.

    I use this unsigned driver:
    http://www.techbirdy.com/files/Intel(R)%2082865G-techbirdy.com.zip

    with this driver,
    I can play solitaire.

    but can't playback MP4s using WMP12.

    WMP12 with Std VGA driver uses 100% CPU.

    use Mplayer for Windows instead; however this is pixellated when using the std VGA driver.

  • Try to use the Vista's drivers. Usually that works. Then, watch when the Win7's drivers are available.

  • There is no Vista or win7 drivers for the 82865G chipset, you must either live with it, rig an XP driver to work, or get a dedicated graphics card. See fav thread link in sig for more

    The normal, safe driver from Intel will do the same thing and maybe even play videos better, I suggest you use Intel's driver and not the one g4qber has listed.

    To make the driver work, you need to open up the device manager in Windows. Go the the "My Computer " icon and right-click it. When the context menu appears, click properties. From there, you should be able to open the Device manager from the left side of the window. If your having trouble finding it, then go to start and search "device manager ". Click on the correct result when it appears. Once you have the device manager open, expand the "display adapters ". Right click on the device and when the context menu appears, press update driver. A window will open to help you through the whole process. It will be easier if you choose to browse to the location that you save this file to. Remember to click on the .ini file because it holds the information needed to intsall this driver. Click next, select your driver again, and your done. It's that easy.

  • There is no windows 7 driver for specific "Intel 865G graphic Chip". But there is a solution. I'm using the same chip set and the resolution is 1280 x 1024 (16bit- high resolution).

    You have to enter bios setup mode (usually use function key F2~F12 to enter setup mode when you boot). And find and change onboard video buffer 1MB to 8MB. Next, save and exit.

    After rebooting, your computer the resolution would not changed. Click mouse right button on the desktop to enter "Screen resolution" menu. And click "Advanced setting", and click "List All Modes" Then you can change your favorite resolution. enjoy your computing...
