Boot computer and hit F8 key till you get the Advanced Boot Menu and try Last Known Good Configuration. If that doesn't work, then go to Safe Mode once in Windows Safe Mode, then go to Device Manager and Right click the Display Adapter driver and uninstall it. Reboot the computer, Windows will load the Default VGA driver, then you can install the proper driver.

Hi -

I would suggest that you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor -

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

There may be other devices besides the video that you have problems with.

There are some issues you should take a look at before installing Windows 7.
System Requirements
RAM 512.00 MB
Your PC needs at least 1 GB of system memory for optimal performance. Contact your PC manufacturer or retailer to see if a RAM upgrade is available.

You need at least 16 GB of free space on your hard disk to install 32-bit Windows 7. Either make room by removing unwanted files from your hard disk, or contact your PC manufacturer or retailer to see if a hard disk with more capacity is available for your PC.
Windows Aero Not capable Your current graphics adapter won't support the Windows Aero user interface. Contact your PC manufacturer or retailer to see if an upgrade is possible.
CPU speed 2.40 GHz Your CPU meets the 1 GHz minimum requirement.

Hi

I am glad that you ran the Windows 7 upgrade adviser.

I would suggest that you try a system restore - choose a restore point prior to the video driver update -
START | rstrui - choose restore point

I have a feeling that there may not be enough restore points because of the hard drive space issue. One reason that Windows 7 needs so much space is for system restore. It will usually use about 15% of the hard drive, although you can adjust it.

Regards. . .

jcgriff2

this is what im at now.

I can see everything however....

My video driver i dont think is installed so im using this VGA which came with windows 7
I can hibnate but not sleep. and of course I can restart and shutdown

I can not play any games or program that required that hardware acceration as my video driver is not installed.

The only driver i can find is on intel website but thats for xp, and im not doing that again.

i tried using drivermax but it came with this old version that didn't do anything but remove my hibernating option. got rid of that by system restore.

all and all my problem is i need some video driver that works perfect on windows 7 (or vista will do as capible mode might work with that)

thanks.

Hi James. . .

I do understand that you are looking for a video driver. I do not have an answer for you on that.

Did you try system restore per my previous post?

Yes, the video driver you are currently using is vga.sys - the legacy video driver that has been around for decades. All Windows systems have vga.sys. It is the video driver that is loaded prior to yours.

Regards. . .

Hi jcgriff2 i think i foiund the answer:

Source: http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/3...-issues-5.html


A. Turn off Digital Driver Signing Check

1. Create a shortcut on the desktop to cmd.exe (In the location box type cmd /k)
2. Right-click on the shortcut and select Run as administrator
3.When the command window opens, type the following and press ENTER after each:
bcdedit /set nointegritychecks ON
bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
4. Reboot in safe mode (press F8 repeatedly during the BIOS screen).

B. Installing the XDDM Vista Driver posted by Kensiko

1. With computer in safe mode, open the Device Manager
(Start > Computer > System Properties > Device Manager)
2. Initiate driver update for Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor
(Properties > Driver Tab > Update Driver > Update driver -> Browse -> Let me pick -> Display adapters -> Have disk -> give path to "855gm_vista_driver " folder of the extracted driver)
3. Navigate to the folder where the driver is stored then complete the installation.
4. In the Device Manager, initiate a new hardware scan (Action > Scan for Hardware Changes).
5. Reboot. If successful, create a restore point!

Note: Chances are that the above steps did not work first time. Try a few variations & be persistent:
· Re-boot in "Disable driver signing enforcement" mode (a variation of Safe Mode).
· Install the driver against the Video Controller showing an error.
· Try installing the XP driver instead (I ended up doing this only to end up with no Display Driver installed which seemed to help with then installing the Vista driver).

going to try it tonight when i get home
