Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family

    Question

  • Got Windows 7 Beta and Now I would like to upgrade my Chipset to the latest Vista drivers.  Tried doing that and I got a BSOD while doing that.  Had to do a restore to get the system back before I installed the driver?  I was wondering if there was a work around for that driver?

    Chipset drivers or graphics drivers? If it is just the chipset drivers, Windows 7 should pick them up by default because those definitions are built-in. As for graphics drivers, I'm not sure.

    Graphic Drives and it's a Mobile Integrated Graphics Card,  I have a really old version of that chipset on Windows 7 but I would like to upgrade it to the newest to help with screen resolutions.



    Ahh ok - there are a collection of various versions of the Vista drivers from Intel available on the site mentioned here. Sometimes, they are newer than the versions posted even on Intel's download site, typically from OEMs. I would give those a shot. I don't personally have a 945 graphics motherboard to test it on to help out more than that. :(
