How do I get Windows 7 Graphic driver for the Intel 82845G Graphics Controller

    Question

  • Windows does not seem to recognize the Intel adapter as it shows only a VGA Save adapter. I have gone to Intel and they don't show a driver for Windows 7.

  • Try installing the XP driver in compatability mode.  It worked for me.

  • You will need to go buy a new dedicated video card if the XP driver doesn't work...
    There is no Vista or win7 drivers for these Intel controllers (see fav thread link in sig for more).

    Make sure when you insert the new card that the onboard graphics is disabled in the BIOS to prevent gfx card conflicts.

  • Thanks much... I'll give it a shot. No that didn't work. Windows gives it an error code of 43. Anyone know what that is? Can I just go out and buy a new video card? will that fix it?

    Intel has both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 drivers on their website for your video card.

    32-bit @ http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18223&lang=eng

    64-bit @ http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18228&lang=eng

    Take your choice!

    You forgot to look at the supported chipsets and notice the the OP's chipset is not in the supported chipset list.

    Please look at that BEFORE YOU POST.

    You're absolutely 100% right.  I guess I got in a hurry and misread the numbers.  Aplogize for the error!

    I suppose you mean turn on XP compat. mode?
    It's in the same place as its always been, right click driver exe and select properties, click compatibility tab, check 'run this program in compat. mode for' checkbox, select XP in the dropdown box, press OK, and hope that the driver installer works.

  • Microsoft does not publish any drivers for Intel hardware.  You will have to obtain a Win 7 driver from Intel for their hardware.

  • You are Right I tried and it worked howevere if windows some time detect that there is incompatible driver is installed it may crash the system.
    Saturday, May 15, 2010 12:17 AM
  • Please don`t install this driver as it will take you to blank desktop. Try to install same windows XP driver in compatiblity mode and it will work.

    Right click on driver >>> troubleshoot the compatibility and launch the program to install.

  • Compatibility Mode did work with Dell Dimension 2400 w/ 82845G and Win 7 32bit.  No special tricks other than running in Win XP SP2 mode.
    Friday, June 25, 2010 3:36 PM
  • Intel drivers for WinXP worked on Dell Dimension 2400 same as above.  Ran the Compatibility Troubleshooter, took suggested option for Win XP SP2 mode.  Not particularly Stellar performance but it works.

  • You would need to run Windows 7 permanently in XP compatibility mode always.  

    This is a sincere question and not a smart alec comment: Why would you want to run Windows 7 in XP compatibility mode permanently?  

    This is something I'd mess around with as a techie, but can't figure out why anyone would buy Windows 7 only to have it run like XP when native XP performs much better.  Are you just messing around with it and have found it to be true?  But if you are proposing it as a solution, what advantage do you get from Windows 7 in XP compatibility over XP Native?

    Again, I want to be sure I understand, because I've used compatibility mode on other machines and its clunky.  So clunky, that I would not consider it a viable option.  Just an opinion and looking for information.  

    Dell 2400 w/ 82845G investigating and dismissing upgrade as pathological solution.

    You only select the Compatibility mode for installation of the driver.  It has nothing to do with the normal operation of Windows 7.  I have never heard of running Windows 7 OS in the XP compatibility mode.

    Have a look here http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/637-installing-video-driver-intel-855-centrino-chipset.html it worked for my 82855 adapter! uses vista drivers and a driver toolkit that forces the driver onto windows seven! same should work for 845.

     

    Driver zip files and link to software available in thread.
