Aero and Intel 82865G Chipset

    Question

  •  

    I am using Windows Vista Home Premium. My chipset is an Intel 82865G for which there is no graphic driver support from Intel. Will I get the Aero effect if I buy and fit an AGP card (256 MB)? Or can anyone tell me what's the alternative that I have to do to get the Aero effect. Windows Vista just works fantastically for me in my PC, except for the Aero, Flip3D and the inability to play certain games. Any help would be highly appreciated.

     

     

     

    The following is my system spec as collected by dxdiag.

    If Intel no longer provides driver support for that integrated chipset, you can purchase a separate video card.

     

    Your computer seems to meet the minimum requirements.

     

    When you purchase a video card, it will usually state whether or not it supports the Vista Aero feature. Just for reference, here is the list of minimum requirements for the video card that you can check prior to the purchase.

      
    It must have a minimum of 128 megabytes (MB) of graphics memory. (More is better)

    It must support a Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) driver.
    It must have a DirectX 9-class graphics processor unit (GPU) that supports Pixel Shader 2.0.
    It must support 32 bits per pixel.

     

    The computer's display settings must be set to 32-bit color.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • i already have xp and also have a partition ready for vista ultimate trial to be put on to try.
    my graphics card is an Intel(R) 82865G.
    the upgrade advisor said that this would not support Areo user experience
    is it worth getting an upgraded driver for this

  • Weird. I'm running "Pac-Man: Adventures in Time" well, but it's saying that my current graphics integrated module may be able to do Aero IF I can get a Windows Display Driver Module for my Intel 82865G. Can anyone tell me how to obtain this without having to blow 500 bucks on an expansion?

  • i have the similar problem only in windows 7 32 bit. i have looked for to purchase an after market  graphics card to replace my original installed  card, but i haven't found any place that has a compatible card for your above specs to work in my IBM think centre 8189 UNU M50 desktop. i bought 1 they said would run windows 7 and vista but turned out to barely run windows xp sp3. so if you know of any company that may have a compatible video card to fit and work in this think centre please let me know so i can get it. my system is running fine with the intel 82865G XDDM  driver but without media center function . i don't care so much about whether Aero works or not as the ability to operate media center as i use it and have for years for all video and audio functions. thanks !
