    Aspire One (AOA150) win7 32bit VGA driver confusion

    triplehelix

      hello.  i'm working on my brother in laws netbook.  an acer aspire one model AOA150.  "Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express Chipset
      Mobile Intel® 82801GBM Chipset" wi th"Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950". acer product spec page:

       

      http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/netbook/0000/Acer/AspireOneAOA150/AspireOneAOA150sp2.shtml

       

      he's running a stripped down version of windows 7 ultimate (tiny) x86.

       

      windows update installs a "generic pnp monitor on standard vga graphics adaptor", and the only resolution available is 800x600.

       

      i believe i've identified the issue as a graphics driver needing to be installed, but the OEM does not offer drivers for this hardware on any OS besides xp.

       

      the intell hardware/driver detector says it doesn't support the monitor and go to the OEM site, which is no help.

       

      i've searched manually, but i'm having some trouble identifying the download i need to install the correct VGA driver for win7 32 bit.

       

      thanks in advance for any assistance.
