Thank you very much to Stefan3D for the information posted previously.
In this case the best option will be to try the steps above, once you find the driver that works properly on your laptop, follow the steps on the link provided previously, to disable Windows driver updates.
I looked in our web site, but for this specific model of processor there are no drivers available, as you can confirm on the link below:
So, disabling the Windows driver updates should fix the problem.
Any questions, please let me know.
Glad to see MS is relenting a little on the forced-updates thing.
I did try a driver from Dell that is confusing a slightly higher rev but for Win7-64. The installer says it went in, Device Manager says not. I'll have to try it to see if there's any difference.
There's also an older driver from Intel. Older by date but much higher in rev number. Must be some different series. Something else to try if Windows will let it.
Oddly the Intel driver and rev that Device Manager reports is not available here. Only the older initial release driver.
Looks like I will have to bounce back and forth to the default driver as needed. Works fine, records much better than the newer one, but is so crude it disables the system's ability to sleep.
I realize this is an old processor by now, but is there anyway to give Intel feedback that it's so much less efficient than the default? Odd that it would be.
