Lost device drivers for Intel Chipset

Q: Lost device drivers for Intel Chipset

I need help locating the device driver for my intel chipset i recently had to format my laptop and when i had re-installed Windows XP Professional back on to the laptop i had lost about 6 drivers for some of my devices i have managed to find all but 2 of these drivers the 2 left to find are "Video Controller" and "Video Controller (VGA Compatible). I have looked on the Intel Support website but can't find the chipset here is the details from a Everest Report

Device Properties
Driver Description: Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
Hardware ID: PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27A2&SUBSYS_ 0F711019&REV_03
PCI Device: Intel 82940GML/943GML Graphics Controller 0 [A-3]

This information is the same on both the drivers needed could anyone help by posting a link for these drivers.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

You say that this is a laptop? I would check the manufacturers website for drivers sometimes they have device drivers for whatever laptop you may have, I looked at the intel site and didnt see your chipset on there. What brand and model is your laptop?

I think my chipset is Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.93GHz and my motherboard is Gigabyte GA-8TRC410M-NF but when using Driver Genius to scan for driver updates it reports back AMD South Bridge Driver (PCI bus) & AMD Chipset Drivers (ATII/O Communications Processor SMBus Controller) need installing/updating ?

Do I need them ? I think I've installed ATI Catalyst before for the SMBus driver but recently uninstalled because I didn't understand what it was for and didn't like the folder/installer

A:AMD Drivers On An Intel Chipset (South Bridge & Chipset Drivers ?)

First thing, check your specs just to be 100% sure of what you have.

Second, Driver Genius and any similar program is not really recommended as they aren't particularly reliable.

Then if you still have drivers for stuff you don't have we can talk about them.

Hi Friends:

Yesterday, I installed my new computer and it has the following:

- Intel DX58SO Extreme Series X58
- Intel Core i7 920 2.66GHz

Their should be ( on the site where you found the update) information as to what issues it specifically addresses.Most of the time it is advisable to update chipset drivers. They control all the way everything your MB does, from the Ethernet to NB to Sb and ram communication. Where as a bios update should only be done if it specifically addresses issues you are experiencing, or new support for your CPU. This is of course my opinion. There'll be others I'm sure.Fabe

Owning a P50 is starting to feel like an R & D group or a beta-test group. Which wouldn't be so bad if we weren't trying to run businesses with these machines!The Intel Chipset update fixes "nothing" and addresses "no" problems. It's just recommended by the Vendor. Bios 1.23 fixes "nothing" and addresses "no" problems.There are readme files with these upgrades so why doesn't Lenovo put an intelligent, brief, explanation of who would want the update and why? It could just be one line added to the comment section of the readme file so it doesn't feel so much like you're just rolling the dice...

Are your system having issues that you are trying to address, or are you just trying to be proactive? Generally I go by the rule that "If it is not broken, don't fix it" when considering applying updates, but if you are experiencing stablity problems with the systems, updating the drivers, especially the core Chipset Drivers would be a good first step.    The readme files for the two updates you cite state the contain the followign fixes.Chipeset <>(N1EH106W) fixes - (New) Improved driver's stability.    (These are fixes from Intel that may fix problems if you are experiencing crashes etc.)BIOS Version 1.23 Problem Fixes - APS does not work on specific configration.    (I hate when they use acronyms, but I believe this referes to the Active Protection System that protects the HD from damage due to shock)

Well; the thing is; usually the drivers intel puts out are just "generic" drivers; as they arent made specifically for any brand. What is the brand of your motherboard?

If it runs on RC, it runs on everything. The only reason they just mention the RC is becuase when the driver was written that is all that was out

Hi all,

I have a Dell workstation (Precision 670) with a single Xeon Irwindale 3.4 GHz and I installed windows 7 x64. I am ok with all of my devices, some drivers are windows 7, my wireless adaptor is a vista driver that works fine, and the rest are Microsoft generic (chipset etc). I tried to intsall the latest intel inf using -OVERWRITE but it didn't update anything from the E7525 related devices. I know this chipset is old but its the first time that a Windows 7 instalation gives me worst benchmarks compared to XP even with generic chipset drivers.

Anyway the thing I would like to ask is if anyone knows in what OS did they stop the support for E7525, so if it is Vista I could try to use the Vista drivers in some way... Intel gives no info, they just have one single file for 5 OS's and 40 chipsets and if it installs it installs.... LAME!

Usually whatever chipset drivers Windows installs works without problems. I used to do a lot of support on the Dell users forum and we didn't see any problems caused by chipset drivers on Dell PC's.

As advised in another thread I have downloaded and installed the Intel Chipset Drivers Update but the nothing happened to the unknown device I see in Device Manager. The installation completes instantly and I see that this indicates the drivers in the update are not needed by my system.

With RAID disabled, and vista installed, I can access both hard drives fine.

How do I even install drivers without installing vista first?

Hi Mooseman,

Welcome to the forums,

Try booting from the dvd in normal mode and deleting both drives and then try your raid again.

Normally you would also have to set up a raid array in the Bios. It is to my knowledge not just a case of selecting raid over sata, but then your laptop could possibly be different

You should normally install the raid drivers, when vista fails to find your harddrives which would be a part of a normal raid install At this point you would be given the option to install 3rd party drivers

I hope this helps Pooch

Hi all,

I just wanted to know if it was possible to use Intel Mobile 4 Series Express Chipset drivers with Windows 8. I've read that you could use the drivers for Windows 7 in Windows 8, but I haven't really proven that to be true.

I keep getting this error:

but I really don't get why I'm getting that message - it's giving me this message like I'm trying to run the software on a computer from the '90s. It really doesn't make sense to me since just about all other software can run on newer operating systems.

All I want to know is if it's possible to install these drivers on my computer, and if not, if there's a patch or a substitute.

Thank you for any answers.

Hey everybody! I'm running Windows 7 on an Emachines t2862, which has an Intel Integrated Chipset (845g, "Itel Extreme Graphic", specifically).
I've tried installing the XP drivers using the installation as well as the tutorial floating around the forums for installing XP graphic drivers. Both caused Windows to crash shortly after booting. I had plenty of time to open a few programs, but about 45 seconds after booting, Windows simply freezes (mouse included).
I had to boot into safemode and roll the driver back to the standard VGA driver to fix it.

Does anybody have any tips? Thanks!

Are there any known compatibility issues between the Intel 865 chipset and nVidia-based video cards?

The reason I ask is that after a year or more of running this system, suddenly no AGP video card I put into this system will work unless it's in plain VGA mode (no drivers). As soon as I load its proper driver, the system won't go back into Windows 98 or Windows 2000 (dual-boot system). It just hangs with a lot of gobbeldegook on the screen.

All the AGP cards I have here are nVidia-based cards so I have no other type card to test with.

At present, I'm using an old S3 PCI video card and at least it gets into Windows; but, I'm stumped.

A:Intel 865 Chipset and nVidia chipset issues?

Alex, I built quite a few systems with Intel D865PERL boards (865PE chipset) and nVidia video cards and never had a problem. My workbench machine right now is running a D865PERL board with a nVidia card with no problems.

Intel released a new chipset driver on 6/04/2007, version which covered the 865 family, eg. 865G, 865GV, 865P and 865PE.!

In the release notes under Issues Resolved, item #4 stated; "Some devices were not updating correctly or at all. Fixed in installer."

You may want to try that update. The only problem I see with the update is since you are dual booting, the latest update is OK with Win2K, however Win98 is not mentioned in All Operating Systems. To get back to an 865 chipset driver that covered both Win2K and Win98SE you had to go back to the release of 12/16/2004, version that covered both Win2K and Win98SE.

Other than updating the chipset driver, I am at a loss to suggest a place to start.

Is Intel HD Graphics Family better than Intel G41 express chipset?

The name is only Intel HD Graphics Family there isnt a number after it in dxdiag

A:Is Intel HD Graphics Family better than Intel G41 express chipset?

Intel G41 express is the very old, Core 2 equivalent on-motherboard-gpu aka Eaglelake. It only supports up to dx10, it has awful and old drivers, and incomplete opengl support (less apps can run on it). It can idle in recent games like Dota 2 with up to 30fps with everything on low. Key word: idle. Don't even think about playing under more than 15-20fps.

Intel HD Graphics Family is on-cpu-die-gpu aka Sandy Bridge, it's still old now, but does have support for dx11 and opengl, and it has a lot more raw power than x4500(g41), depending on the cpu. It even supports overclocking with sizeable improvements.

Really there is no contest between the two families.

The X6800 outclasses the AMD CPUs by a wide margin in virtually every circumstance of performance measurement. The CPU also runs cool in comparison to earlier Intel CPUs and consumes less than 75W. By any standard of measurement the X6800 is an success bringing Intel back on top.

The E6700 which has a rather interesting naming scheme considering its only 266MHz slower than the x6800 while having the same cache and structure is right in there with the x6800 in performance, slower than its bigger brother but faster than the competition.

Problem, after trying to remove a virus/maleware/currupted exe's, i seemed to have lost any information in my Device Manager and all my Network connections (both LAN and WIFI).

Not sure if this would have caused this, When dealing with the exe problems (whether it was virus, maleware or anything) i was in safemode.. I did a msconfig and clicked on boot.ini. I checked safeboot. Apon the next reboot i had no network connections, no device manager. But interesting enough my problem went away and was able to access anything again. I went back into msconfig to renable boot.ini to the original setting and an still have the same problem...
So my problem is i have NO network connections, no LAN or WIFI options.

Only after i enabled Safeboot in Boot.INI in MSCONFIG.

MSCONFIG settings set back to original settings.

System restore was apperntly off.
Any ideas?

I have GTX 460 with 258.96 drivers. I do not have an nVidia chipset. When I went to check the Driver Sweeper files, I found all these chipset files. Why do I have them?

A:Why do I have chipset drivers when I don't use an nvidia chipset?

Why do I have them?

For the same reason I and everyone else does, because 7 installs base drivers for just about everything as a "just in case", regardless of the actual hardware. I have those same files as well as some from Intel, Via, SiS, etc all in the,


Personally I would just leave all that well enough alone as it isn't affecting anything as they never get loaded unless the hardware they are for ever gets installed. That and there is a good chance that by removing them that when SP1 does come out it will fail to install due to missing system files (ask those that had that happen after removing various unused driver files and whatnot with vlite on Vista).

I'm going to get a new motherboard (finally) and have settled on these two options:


Question is (since my budget is so tight) will I notice any real difference by choosing the less expensive SIS chipset board over the Intel chipset board?

A:SIS chipset vs. Intel chipset

Not an answer to your question exactly, just an observation:

I would look for a main board with PCI Express graphics interface instead of AGP.
AGP video cards are still available, but the overwhelming majority of new cards are PCI-X, and they are generally a bit cheaper than their AGP counterparts.

Unless, of course, you want to transfer an AGP card over to the new board.

I have just updated to Intels chip-set and I would like to know if this was the right thing to do.
After installing the new chip-set and restarting my PC I ran the Intel Driver Utility and it was able to see the new chip-set and it said it was valid. Does this mean I did the right thing and should not see any problems?

A:Is the new Intel Chipset right for me?

It ok - generally you gain from any updates relevant to your chipset, and if not they just load previous driver drivers from previous releases - meaning each new release is backward compatible, and each new release covers the new motherboard chipsets as well as the older chipsets.

I have just spent the last hour on the phone to Tiscali Broadband technical support because I am having problems with my modem. They now tell me that my USB chipset (VIA) does not work well with their modem and that I should get an Intel Chipset.

I am not technical and this has confused me, does this mean software of hardware? And if it is software am I able to download it?

Help gratefully received as I am going up the wall every time my connection drops out.

A:Intel Chipset

This indeed would be hardware - going from one chipset to another - it means a new motherboard. However, since VIA is one of the largest chip makers i find this hard to believe. You can download newer chipset drivers for VIA from - its the Via Hyperion 4-in-1 driver you want.

It may also be possible to get a ethernet Modem instead of USB from Tiscali, although you may need an ethernet card, although it would be easier and cheaper then a new motherboard.

hi all,

i built my first rig about 2 years ago and its running great. im starting to get more into gaming and want to replace my old mobo. i want to run a 2 vid. card setup. i'm leaning toward an intrl processor and was wondering...... on the intel chipsets, p31/ p35, q33/q35, x38/x48, can you run an Nvidia SLi configuration or a crossfire config. I have always used amd mobos so im not at all formiliar with intel chipsets.
so can these multi-card configs work on intel chipsets? there are in tel chipset boards with 2 or more pci x16 slots so i think so.
will these run crossfire or sli?
which chipsets will or won't?

thanks a ton!

A:Intel Chipset = SLi???

I have a board [foxconn mars] that runs the p35 chipset AND supports ATI crossfire with both slots running @16X.

My laptop has the Intel 945GM chipset. Installation has always been flawless with Windows 7, even up to build 7077. The only thing is I always have to install the older driver from Intel in order to fully utilize the S-Video out functionality. You will see from the 1st pic (1: the clear edge of the screen) that when using the default installed driver, the output needs zooming (2). This cannot be done from within Windows as far as I can tell.

After installing the drivers from Intel (using Vista compatability) i can fully use the Intel Graphics Media Accellerator Driver as shown in pic 2 to zoom the output to fir the screen.

This is a very strange issue as there is nothing wrong with the drivers shipped with the latest builds of Windows 7.

Hi there,

I found a solution for this. It's the "Aspect Ratio" setting in the Intel driver. Unfortunately, in Windows 7 the Intel Graphics Settings tool is missing, so you cannot choose between "Maintain Aspect Ratio", "Center Desktop", "Stretch to Full Screen"...

The default seems to center the desktop. I now found the registry setting for this.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\{CLSID-here-you-have-to-find-the-right-one}\0000\

In this key, you find many entries, beginning with ~3DMark03.exe and several other game executables.

Now search for the DWORD ForceBorderForMAR. Set it to 1. This worked for me and stretches non-native resolutions to full screen.

Hope this helps...

Hi, There are several ways to ID your motherboard. Try this first:

You want the Free Download link there. Download Belarc Advisor to desktop, run it to install. Shows many motherboards, video, sound, chipset, and software.
Your motherboard may be shown under "System or MainBoard"
then, Audio for sound device. Best to get drivers for sound from company that made the it a name brand like Gateway? Do you have any CDs that came with the system?
You can also look inside the computer....if that is not an option for you, try Belarc.
Somewhere on the board itself is a label, either a paper one or printed directly on the board, in bigger print than the rest, an ID number....perhaps like this: MB6137 or SD-11
MS6168 GA7VX
There might also be an FCC ID number.

If he is buying an Ivy bridge, he will have to go Z68 Gen 3 or z77. The board itself does not have graphics on it, the CPU does. But, there really is no such thing as future proofing.

The chipset driver that I can download from the Asus website only installs when I force it to install by using compatibility mode. Wondering if I should do this or just leave it as it is after a clean install as it seems to be recognised anyway.


A:Intel Z77 chipset support.

Welcome to Eight Forums OD.

I would just leave it as it is now.

Chipset drivers are better to get from the OEM or motherboard sites.
Asus will have new Win8 drivers anytime from now until the release.

The only drivers I D/L from Intel are the RST (for all computers) and Graphics drivers for my laptop.
Most of the rest are from OEM or motherboard site, all graphics cards from manufactures site.

For any pre-release OS I check if any drivers are needed after the clean install, if none are needed I just go with it.
These beta releases can be picky about drivers, usually after RTM the drivers are better and the OS handles them better.

Hey all,
About a month ago, I bought a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4014. Not knowing all that much about computers, I didn't realize that this actual computer is built for business use, rather than gaming. Much to my dismay, I found that Call of Duty 2 does not work on my computer. I meet all of the minimum requirements (1.83 GHz duo processor, 1 gb ram, 120 gb hard drive), but the problem in running the game is in the fact that the chip, the 945 GM (Calistoga), is not 100% directx 9.0 compatible. I think this means that only some games work on directx 9.0, while others do not. That being the case, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this chip and can offer any advice as to what I should do/ what games I could play, etc. Thank you.

A:Intel 945GM Chipset help

Only a very few high end laptops are capable of real gaming, the prime purpose of a laptop is business/office work and that is what they are mostly all made for.

Alienware/Dell do make gaming capable laptops, but you realise that when you see the price of them....

It may be better to get this shifted to the Games forum, where someone may have tried out some games on the chipset.

This is my next rig...
Corsair TX 750w v2
Core i5 2500k
RipJaws F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM
Samsung Spinpoint 1tb

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 or ASUS P8Z68-V

Graphics: Stock intel for now(yeah, already broke).......hoping to crossfire 6870s soon though!

Any sugestions of a better setup for around 1000$ budget plus which mobo is better Asus or Gigabyte......i seem to think they're almost identical, (goin for the cheaper option)

A:Intel Z68 chipset + 2500k -- best mobo?

Probably not a lot of difference between the two boards. It comes doen to what your priorities are. I would base the choice on what is likely important to you:

The Asus board has the better GbLAN (Intel) and the UEFI interface (BIOS)
The Gigabyte board has some better connectivity (the full four SATA 6Gb ports) and a slightly better audio codec (889).

Apart from that, overall performance should be very similar since most of the features are reliant upon the CPU. Layout on both boards is pretty good, and expansion slot availability once you get your CFX graphics up and running would be identical (all P67/Z68 boards that feature a PCIe x4 or x16 @ 4 lanes will default automatically to x1 operation once you plug anything into a USB3.0 port or plug in a PCIe x1 card (i.e. sound card, tuner card etc.)

The new Skylake-S CPUs use a new microarchitecture which means that the socket on the CPU and motherboard are physically different from the previous generation. To accomodate this change, Intel has also launched the Z170 chipset to go along with...

A:Intel Z170 vs. Z97 chipset: What is the difference?

One of the things I look forward to doing is to start using M.2 SSDs on desktop builds, especially for SFF builds. Of course as of this post the only motherboard I know of that has included one is ASRock's X99 ITX board (which was reviewed here), though both EVGA and ASRock have put out a couple X99 mATX boards too. With my first impressions via the review here and other places, I'm hesitant to go to skylake for my next build, but at the same time I hope that with Skylake more (affordable) boards will come equipped is M.2.

Pretty tired of having outdated graphics cards that can run only basic specs of old games etc, so wondering if it's possible to upgrade or replace an Intel G33/G31 Chipset graphics card?

Running a..
Zoostorm Intel Celeron E3500 2.7Ghz CPU
Intel G33/G31 Express Chipset Family
64bit System

And not entirely sure about the PSU... Haven't mustered up the stones to open it up and take a peak under the hood yet... I'm not very tech savy with the hardware unless it's relatively basic...

Any help would be really appreciated! And if anyones had any experience with this model at all that would be a big help as well as I've found it suprisingly hard to find a good detailed description about this exact model.

A:Upgrading Intel G33/G31 Chipset Family

I had one of those some years ago ... Got it from Argos it did not have any expansion slots .. Your Model could be different the only way to find out is open it up .. Take some pics and Post them ... Your PSU should be 300w ..

I have just bought a Dell GX280 bare bones pc. I need to buy a processor , memory, cd-rw-dvd reader etc.. Can anyone confirm that the 915G Express chipset comes in 478 or 775 pin form, or either.

The other query is: originally the pc had a WD400 hard disk in it. I would like at least a 80Gig drive, but am unsure whether the 80 Gig drive has the same
dimensions. Any other make is also good, but as I say, due to the pc being the small form factor type size is important.

If anyone can make any reccommendations for drives etc.. It would be very helpfull.

When I tried the same mouse on other computers, it worked just fine. When I tried another mouse on this computer, it failed to install as well.

I heard that this could have been a problem because of my intel chipset, so I went to the site, and found the appropriate chipset install/update/whatever, and ran it. Upon running, it would go part way, notify through a hardware update wizard window that it installed something,"windows has finished installing the software for: PCI Standard ISA bridge." It then tells me it wont work till I restart, it resumes the chipset installation, then says "An unknown error occurred. Setup will now exit." and the chipset install shuts down. I'm at a loss for getting this to work; i've tried in safe mode and whatever I could turn off I did, and it still did that. Can someone help me please?

Welcome to seven forums: Looks like an overheating problem. I would first try some canned compressed air and blow out the exhaust and intakes. Of course after the system has been shut down to cool down. But as bad as it is it could be a bad card,make sure yo have all the latest drivers. But since this appears after a couple of hours i would hedge a bet it is overheating, which may have caused your card to go bad as well. My opinion. fabe

There is no such thing as CHIPSET upgrade on any machine any vendor.
You cant put a core I3 I5 I7 chip into a 780.
Minecraft requires JAVA and a GPU  Radeon HD5450 is minimum requirement.
Minecraft on a 780 with linux or windows 7 or 8 or 10 works fine when you have a radeon 5450 minimum.
Radeon HD5xxx series is legacy so it requires legacy amd driver,

This is weird. I have an HP Pavilion with Intel 915 Express Graphics Chipset and 128 MB Video Ram.
When I launch a program window that has opacity less than 100% (partially transparent) if I see the window client area fill with Black, then paint, when I move that window it will "stutter" instead of being dragged smoothly with the mouse. If the window opens normally, I can drag it with the mouse smoothly.
I have the latest Intel graphics drivers installed direct from the Intel support download page.

It's really strange because there's no way to predict when it will happen. If my video was unable to handle the graphics it would do it all the time. Also there's no correlation to system load. It can do it with only a few programs running or move smoothly with lots of programs running.

Really baffling!!

I'm running XP Professional 32 bit SP 2.

A:intel 915 express graphics chipset "stutter"

If the system is unable to handle the load, it would do it all the time. But, if it's just a matter of load from running programs - then the problem would surface when the combination of running programs caused an issue with the video display.

For example, if another program is occupying your memory - then there won't be enough RAM to continually refresh the view. This would force the refresh onto your pagefile, and the lag from the disk would cause this particular issue.

To prove/refute this, open a whole bunch of stuff and get it working - then try the window movement.
It should stutter for you then.
Then close all the open stuff (to include the stuff in the System Tray by the time) and try the window movement again.
The stutter should stop (or be reduced).

You can view some of this in the Task Manager...Performance tab
