    Windows 7 RC Magnifier and GM965 driver fail


      I'm using Windows 7 Release Candidate on my tablet PC Fujitsu T4220, which uses Mobile Intel® GM965 Express Chipset.


      It is said here that it supports the highest level of Windows Aero experience on windows vista, so I supposed it's the same for windows 7, and indeed Aero seems to work fine when I use it.


      Except that when I launch the new Magnifier tool (which needs Aero to work properly), I get an error "Desktop Windows Manager stopped working and was closed", which basically means that Aero just quitted, and then the Magnifier doesn't work properly (only docked view is available, no lens, no full screen).


      Researching about this leads to the conclusion that its a problem with the graphic card driver, but I use the latest windows 7 RC driver for the GM965, so that means we can consider this post as a bug report for this driver? does anyone experience the same problem?


      I repeat that other features from the Aero experience (transparency, Aero peek etc..) seems to be working fine, just the Magnifier fails.

          Same problem here with Windows 7 RTM (Ultimate 64 Bit) on my Lenovo Thinkpad X61t. I tried the graphics driver that comes with Windows Update and just installed the latest driver from the Intel website (version of October 2nd, Didn't find much at Google on this topic. Would really appriciate to have a solution to this problem. The windows event log says:

            Just received a new graphics driver via Windows Update, but still no change. Any ideas?
