    The June deadline has now been changed to August. Clearly those of you who want Win XP drivers for boards equipped with this chipset need to formally report the problem to Intel (and complain about the deadline change while you're at it)  if it's an Intel branded board or the board manufacturer if its another brand. I don't own anything equipped with this graphics chipset but even so I think this is a very poor state of affairs on Intel's part. If the product is advertised as having XP support (which it is), it should have full drivers from the first day it goes on sale IMO. None of this messages in the downloads stuff, advising of moving goalpost delayed drivers.

    Okay... How to create formally report and that's enough this report to help us, if for my device not advertised XP support? I have Acer Aspire One, but this device not supported this OS officially. On Win7 work transformed to most terrible nightmare, if speaking censorship language. On this OS not worked correctly almost all soft, not speak about system resource distribution.

    Given this is an Acer product you have, you'd need to ask Acer to offer Win XP drivers for it and explain your reasons to them why you want/need that. I didn't quite understand the rest of your post but if it wasn't advertised as supporting Win XP when you got it or since, you can only ask to have this added (unlike those who bought the Intel branded boards who should have got it from day 1 IMO). Certainly if your device is having problems with Windows 7 (an approved OS), definitely Acer (or the supplier on the manufacturers behalf) should look to address that for you. Good luck dealing with them.

    i have an intel d2500 board and i can say that on win7 it works , but Intel is doing a ****** job at making the graphic drivers work OK, which blocks much of the work.

     

    Also Win7 is pretty much the same as WinXP with the resources if you have 1GB ram at least there wont be much diference, disable Aero, software wise haven't had problems since about the beginning of the year, if you use corporate software you should have tested it before committing to win7.......

    i have 5 or 6 Atom's 330 running Win7 very well, the problem is obviously drivers or bad hardware, contact Acer.

    Good luck

     

    Also...intel..youre on my black list of hardware until you sort this mess. AMD Fusion is looking very well to me.

    Thanks for your incredibly useful answer! I think, that most part IT ingeneers know about "great" Acer service. Watching and writing in this topic I think, that chips for compare their production Acer not generated from air, and considering their "beautiful" service and marvelous attention to end users, is a logical step - contact the manufacturer.

    Clearly you're annoyed with this situation and I understand that. Please understand that my intentions are to try and help you - not wind you up! What did you want me to say - contact Intel and expect them to fix this for you? Irrespective of what you may think of Acer, they are responsible for your product and may have used a non-reference design in your product so its important they are the ones to deal with this issue. By all means if after contacting them about it, you are still unhappy then (at the least), remember this when you next buy such a product and let your wallet do the voting to tell them what you think! By all means once Intel eventually releases Win XP drivers for this graphics chipset, IF you still find Acer haven't responded with suitable drivers for your product, consider selling it second hand and buying a product which does meet your OS needs at the time of purchase - check it out and do your research first before putting your money on the counter..

    Please excuse me, if touched you in a dispute. This ill-fated device - working computer, so I can't influence the choice in buy moment. In future such moment will be considered. Thank you for try help us! You will wait and hope to successful end in your work.

    I think the only thing that can possibly help the GMA 3600/3650 is new drivers!

     

    But we all need to put pressure on the hardware partners, so that they in turn give more weight to the complaints to Intel.

    I replaced an old d510mo board to a D2500HN in an embedded system running XP.

    I just realized that there are no graphics drivers. In the Download Center it says they will be available in April!

     

    Intel please let us know when they will be available!

    I just bought a Samsung netbook with Intel GMA 3600. I hope Intel releases the drivers for Linux soon!Re: Drivers for graphics Intel GMA 3600/3650 - when?

    Recently bought a Gateway LT40 with an Intel Atom N2600 and a GMA 3600.

     

    This has the worst graphics compared to the early atom netbook.

     

    When will the update for this graphics be release?

    You're asking the wrong people. What do Gateway have to say about any updates? If you're wanting generic Intel updates, you need to specify what they're for precisely as there are many possible things that could be updated if your current setup was old enough and you were keen enough. It's also worth a note that many of them may not be compatible with your OEM PC which may be designed/customised in a non-reference design way. The Intel website mentions their Win XP drivers for the Intel GMA3600 as being due August (2012) - check out their download page note for more info.

    Hello ,

     

    I have same problem ,i have HP MINI 110 4108TU which has embedded intel GMA 3600 ...the crap problem i am having is that i have all drivers installed other than graphics which i now realise is not available till date for Windows XP and going by it ,intel seems not inclined as well ....but its very important for me ,

     

    can anyone point me to any link from intel where they say how they plan to fix the issue ,the above download centre note link redirects to a expired page ,

    Again, you need to contact the OEM (in your case HP) about it. Although Intel have now released a Win XP Graphics Driver for some of their motherboards which are equipped with this GMA 3600 chipset, as I predicted they are very basic and mention no 2D, 3D or Video Acceleration being in place. Let us know what HP says about this.

    Strictly speaking the drivers are already here: They exist in the MeeGo operating system, whose latest version was something like July 12. If you are willing to accept the possibilities and limits of MeeGo, then installing it gives you a solid working Linux supported by Tizen, which is one of Linus's enterprises. Installing it is a matter of doing a series of loop mountings on a working Linux without full graphics support (of course), then copying the final version onto a spare disk parition or live flash pendrive stick. Note: you have to ADD 'video=LVDS-1:d' or it won't boot properly.

     

    You can also take a working Linux partition and add the MeeGo 'adaptation-pc' kernel and modules in place of the native kernel, using the fbdev_drv.so graphics driver (which is cleverly missing in many modern systems, but can be gotten and compiled so far). It turns out that, not only will this hybrid system work, but it can work extremely well, running circles around what you get by copying the powervr graphics driver from MeeGo into your current system.

     

    So, support exists, but it is not quite open source support.

     

    The surprise is that the MeeGo 'adaptation-pc' kernel also works on Sandybridge systems, with the Intel open-source graphics driver seeing the kernel as a valid Intel framebuffer kernel, which uses the i965_drv.so graphics driver to provide direct rendering. Now, the reason that i965_drv.so works on Sandybridge is that the 'adaptation-pc' kernel provides a '/dev/dri/card0' in the '/dev' directory that provides direct rendering to the Sandybridge system using the i965 driver.

     

    So, the question arises as to whether, on a Cedarview Intel board, the open-source Intel driver could be coaxed into recognizing the 'adaptation-pc' kernel and into using the i965 direct rendering driver to give a quick and dirty open source Cedarview with the fbdev_drv.so as the basic open-source code. Or, better, what is needed is an fbdev_drv.so extended to use the i965 in place of swrast on a conventional system with the 'adaptation-pc' kernel. This ought to result in an extremely fast and stable somewhat open-source driver with little extra effort.
