    Win7 on P4  with poor coloration,  XP Pro worked fine.


      Issue :  Attempting to upgrade to Win7 from XP Pro

                   All seems ok except extreme screen  coloration  problems at 800x600

                   which is the only display setting allowed.

                   Under XP Pro SP3, on a different HDD,  there were no screen issues

                   and the Monitor ( HP vx74 )  performed as expected.

      A screen capture is shown at  http://n2006b.com/Res/

      Monitor  HP vx74 using

          Microsoft Driver 6.1.7600.16385  which Win7 says is up to date


      I know the MB and monitor are capable of  good color at 800x600,

      but don't know how to proceed.


      Tried win32_152824 but it says computer does not meet minimum requirements.

      Tried win32_153633.4578 but it says computer does not meet minimum requirements.

      Of course it is an Intel P4 MB

      Still running MSFT 6.1.7600.16385 with poor coloration and MSFT says that driver is up to date.

      Other ideas ?

      Any ideas are appreciated.

          Hello srfpala,

          Thank you for contacting the Intel community.

          After reviewing this motherboard information and compatible operating system, I find out that this motherboard does not support Windows® 7, this is an old motherboard and at that time it was made to work with Windows® XP and other operating systems before Windows® Xp.

          At this point, the only option is to try to update Windows and check if that helps if not you will need to go back to Windows® XP.

          I’m sorry this is not what you wanted to hear but this is the reality with motherboard and since you have Windows® 7 installed now there is no driver available to solve this issue.
