Due to the fact that there are at least 25 different types and variants of the Intel 'Anti- Aero' schemes, It would be nice if there was more than four people working on it at the same time. So, my point to you is if you are unsatisfied with the driver, then HELP US COMPILE, WRITE, AND DISTRUBUTE THE DRIVERS. I will email anyone the source code if you want to participate.
HI,the driver won't install on my inspiron 1300 , w7 ultimate, centrino1.6 ,2gb ram ,not meeting minimum requirements...do you have other versions that will install?
plus the site , put some ads and manage the forum i'm shure we will be on it discusing,testing etc thanks
ps this driver is a really big deal to a lot off people
could you post a download link for the driver only, maybe working or something
the bdd driver where to download ? or where to find it inside w8 setup?
is there a version that installs on mobile 915GM/GMS,910GML, i have driver 188.8.131.5264 latest and this modded driver wont work
The BDD only comes with Windows 8 because it was modded as an extra into the OS. The WDDM 1.2 in Windows 8 only supports the WDDM 1.2 driver and nothing else. You can't install the native XPDDM onto Windows 8 because it was removed.
Also botelucian, please post the specifications of your laptop to the forum or email them to me so that I can make a laptop/ destktop specific driver. The moddded driver only works on a Dell B130 with 2.1GHZ and 2GB of ram. Please remember that these drivers don't have full support behind them other than our dev. team. Intel doesn't accept their existence and Microsoft doesn't want to sign them.
thats what i have a dell b130/insprion 1300 same thing pentium 4 1.6 ghz overlocked with pinmod to 2.1 with 2 gb ram ,ps no offence but screw intel they are not helping in any way
so my full specs intel pentium m725 buss speed 133 mhz, rated buss speed 532 mhz core speed 2128 mhz (oc from 1600 mhz), 2 gb ram
video Mobile Intel(R) 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family -Driver version 184.108.40.20664 ,motherboard dell 0GD366 Southbridge Model 82801FBM (ICH6-M) Chipset Model i915GMS/i910GML
can i manualy force the drivers ? unpack it from the exe , an go via device manager update driver , ....let me pick a list of device drivers from my computer ? forcing the driver on ?
nope not working tried a few from the list 945 , 965, amd 82945 not working on my lapie witch one should i pic ? can you make a driver and delete the ones that dont work,or underline the right one
First, thank you for the great work on providing the GMA driver!
I also have an issue with the minimum specs. My company notebooks are the ultraportable Toshiba Portege/Dynabook R200, which have the ultra low voltage 1.2GHz Pentium M CPU and only 1.2GB RAM and there is no way to upgrade beyond that. We have upgraded the pathetic 1.8" HDD to an SSD. The machine is powerful enough to run anything besides modern games and I have been using it with Win7 for almost a year. Here is the detailed spec: http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/product/pdf_files/detailed_specs/portege_R205-S209.pdf
Is there a way to bypass the hardware check of the installer? I am sure the machine is powerful enough, but most ultra low voltage CPUs are not clocked at 1.7GHz... And so much RAM is only required for cache which is not very important with the SSD we have...
Please post some instructions on how to bypass the hardware check and install the driver.
Thank you so much!
First off, your minimum specs should be adiqute for the Windows 8 BBD driver. I am guessing that you are using the Driver that I provided and not Windows 8. If you are using my driver, then there is little hope that it would run because of your specs. Of course, if it did run, it would slow down your PC to the piont were any apps that you are running would be 10x slower. That is the difference in speed becuase the driver is STAI and not WDDM or BBD. STAI drivers don't have any 'fake video' ram. This means that the processes have to be worked through only the Intel 915 '128MB' GPU, instead of the aid from the CPU. WDDM are hardware based without any other help and can perform these processes natively. Windows BBD drivers are software based 'liar' drivers which fake the entire system's ram and capacity to 64MB and get instructions from the CPU. Everything about Aero and BBD is virtual. Then again Windows is.
If you really want to run aero- you WILL regret it. Have a drive partioned or a spare drive and install the driver. The only way to bypass it is to change the registry settings, but it might screw up some of your apps. This is only a project, so its hard to tell what might happen.
I just finished loading up a full release copy of Windows 8 on my Asus Eee 1000HD, only to find the 915GM isn't supported by anyone (except you). The most recent link to your driver appears to be dead. I'd love to get my hands on a copy to test with the release version of Windows 8!
Again another person that looking for a 915GM driver for Windows 8! I am using VAIO-VGNFS315B, Windows is running just fine except graphic card.. I am using Basic Display and Windows seems fine and working flawless, except video playback (I assume that the lack of drivers are responsible)..
Can I get a copy for the drivers to try too? Make something about us pls, we are so many people looking for that..
If anyone succeed to install 915GM drivers on Windows 8, pls send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
