    Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows XP?




      My Toshiba Satellite L305-S5946 laptop contains an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD graphics card (as seen here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=2324048&rpn=PSLB8U&modelFilter=&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663), and I'm wondering if a driver is available for this card on Windows XP? I've noticed after playing Diablo 2, Maplestory, and Runescape that performance is much worse than it could and should be. I'm forced to use the lowest quality display settings on each game just so I can play, and even then I experience a lot of lag. I can't even play Minecraft through the client, and the browser gives me a terrible time. I've checked Intels driver locator service, and it seems they only provide drivers for Windows 7/Vista. I'm not exactly a fan of these operating system, and I would prefer to stick with Windows XP.


      I'm led to believe that a driver exists (http://www.techeta.com/download-intel-gma-x4500-x4500hd-windows-xp-graphics-drivers), however the download link is broken, and I'm not sure I should even trust the content offered.


      If no driver is available...then Intel should probably make one for all the guys and gals like me ! If it comes down to it, I will just partition a copy of Windows 7...I hope it doesn't come to that.


      Thanks for any info provided!
