    How can I get graphic drivers for vista Intel 845 GVAD2 mother board?
    Intel I think is not going to offer any drivers for vista for this mother
    board.
    I really cantgo for a new pc right now. :(

    Is there a way around.

    Thanks

  2. Drivers are the responsibility of the hardware manufacturer so Intel is your
    only option. You might try using the XP drivers. Failing that, you could
    return your setup to XP and wait until you are ready to move to a new
    computer before using Vista.

  3. Another possibility I overlooked is you could get a third party graphics
    card that has Vista compatible drivers. Since nVidia seems to still be
    having quite a bit of trouble with their drivers, you might want to check
    out ATI cards that might be in your price range, check various online
    retailers, do a Google search. Once you find a suitable card, check the ATI
    site to be sure there are Vista compatible drivers for the card.

    I would need a PCI card and not an AGP card as my mother board does not have
    an AGP slot.
    WHich one would you recommend?

    My other pc specs are
    HDD 160GB x1
    80gb x 1
    TFT syncmaster 740n
    Pinnacle PCTV
    WIFI
    Wireless keyboard n mouse
    1gb ram
    P4 2.6ghz

    Hope this system will support vista fine if I get a ATI graphic card.

    Thanks friend, this had naver occured to me that I could upgrade my graphic
    card.
    :)

  9. What issues are nVidia drivers having? I have no problem with my nVidia
    drivers. and I use SLI.

  11. Yeah, I'm sure your right. Funny how some people never get issues when
    others do. Feburary the drivers were pretty bad, and SLI wasn't available.
    But the WHQL drivers have been quite stable IMO.
