Intel I915 Driver Download Install Update
Windows 7 Hardware Compatibility https: Sign in to vote. I've a dell GX Currently i'm using windows vista on it. The problem is that i can't manage to install driver for my graphics in windows 7 whereas windows vista auto install the graphics driver though i still can't enable aero on vista.
Video playback is crappy and i can't set a refresh rate higher than 60mhz. I'm stuck with standard vga adapter drivers from microsoft.

Faysel, The Dell website should absolutely have video drivers for your model of notebook, and you should be able to download and install them manually. If there are no Windows 7 drivers available, the Windows Vista drivers should work fine. But as to your question. And as for Dell having your drivers. Dell will only offer drivers that were build for that system. So vista probablly isnt available for it.

Graphics Drivers for Intel® 82915G/82910GL Express Chipset Family
This excludes a set of SoC platforms with an SGX rendering unit, those have basic support through the gma drm driver. This section covers core driver infrastructure used by both the display and the GEM parts of the driver. The i driver supports dynamic enabling and disabling of entire hardware blocks at runtime. This is especially important on the display side where software is supposed to control many power gates manually on recent hardware, since on the GT side a lot of the power management is done by the hardware. But even there some manual control at the device level is required. This file provides generic functions to the driver for grabbing and releasing references for abstract power domains. It then maps those to the actual power wells present for a given platform. This function can be used to check the hw power domain state. It is mostly used in hardware state readout functions.
Intel® 915G Graphics and Memory Controller
Recently Intel started including their graphics drivers into the mainline Linux kernel. This is great except when it stops working. There was no real pattern to this happening nor was I able to get any log file information or journal information about the issue as it completely froze. No network, no ping, nothing. I recall this also happened on my previous Lenovo x though less frequently. I am sure at some point this will be permanently fixed and disseminate down to all the major Linux distributions. It instead uses the xorg-xdrv-intel driver which means the testing below is not relevant currently thanks to Venemo in the comments. I doing more testing now against the stock 4. I am now testing the latest drm-tip against the Fedora Rawhide 4. So far things have been stable for 4 days on 4. For giggles I tested trying to trigger this in the BIOS and was able to get screen artifacts by jerking the laptop around and also by squeezing a normal amount the palm rest area of the laptop. I received my laptop back from repair and the motherboard and SATA cables were replaced.
