I really need to resolve this problem somehow...
The GM965 chipset graphics drivers are only available on the Windows 8 installation DVD. I am not sure where you got the drivers you mention "One set came from intel and the other one from dell." Intel will not be providing graphics drivers for the GM965 chipset for Windows 8.
I would recommend you use the "Roll Back Drivers" option in Device Manager to revert to the drivers supplied on the installation DVD.
I downloaded Windows 7 drivers and used them in compatibility mode.
When the OS was first installed, all I had by default was an unknown device named "Video Controller"
I would recomend using the drivers provided on the install DVD.
I'm not sure if you're referring to a second dvd or something else but no drivers were included with my installation dvd...
The Windows 8 installation DVD. It has the drivers for your chipset. You may need to run the "Roll Back Drivers" function from Device Manager.
I actually reinstalled the OS since it was a fresh install anyways.
I was able to port to my TV using fn+f8 on the boot menu.
Now the last issue I have before I can make this 100% usable is that my TV's native resolution isn't showing in the resolution options. (1366x768)
Is there any way to enable that resolution?
I'll be all set.
Thanks for the support by the way Robert_U.
