The driver version you mention , 126.96.36.1998, is not the graphics driver. Please try this driver and report back. http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3231&DwnldID=18521&lang=eng
That is the version that Windows reports under the Device Manager. The link you provided is to the Vista/Windows 7 driver, but I am running XP as I stated earlier. I checked the download center for the driver I am using, and Intel calls it version 3.3.0 on their download site. It is the latest Windows XP 32 bit driver they provide. Here is the link http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3180&DwnldID=18472&lang=eng
same thing over here sept intel GMA985 on Vista 32....really sad intel i cant even dump your junk software for something better and more reliable....
fully up-to-date drivers, and can reproduce the problem on ANY computer using Intel software for color correction, WHY????
sure some dummies never touch these options but if you know ANYTHING about these settings you know its based on where YOU use the screen, not how it looked all super bright at the factory......
EPIC FAIL INTEL - or fix it SOON
or just remember everytime someone uses my computer and asks why the color/contrast look like **** i fix it by opening the control panel and clicking APPLY, then explain how much Intel software sucks....
