    Compaq Presario SR2180NX, Vista Home Premium 32-bit, Intel Pentium D, Intel
    945G Express Chipset, using an X2gen 19" LCD. Bought new Feb, 2007. (Problem
    with Nortons on old Gateway with ME)

    Ran PC check at PC Pitstop. Graphics not up to par. Suggested look for new
    Graphics Driver.

    When I tried to download and install the new drivers for the 945G Express
    Chipset Family from Intel, I got the message:
    The driver is not validated for this computer. Contact your manufacturer for
    correct drivers.

    HP has only my current drivers listed. Have submitted question to HP about
    validation and newer drivers, but have not gotten an answer yet.

    Does anyone know if MS is working with theses new drivers?

    Gateway MX8711, Vista Home Premium 32 Bit, Dual Core 1.6, 945GM express
    chipset, 2 gigs RAM, 17 inch LCD. I ran into the same problem with the same
    drivers for my Gateway laptop with the same video chipset. Gateway offered
    the updated driver at their website specifically touting it for Windows
    Vista. I got the same error message. Gateway support suggested going to the
    Intel site and looking for an updated driver. I found the Intel driver
    specifically for my chipset and Windows Vista. When I tried installing that
    driver I got the same message again - that the driver was not validated for
    my system. I cannot find help from anyone about how to install a driver that
    is supposedly made for the chipset/Windows Vista combination without getting
    the validation error message. Ready to give up!

    Try this:
    1) delete all of your temp files
    2) temporarily turn off UAC/launch, then
    reboot then try again to install the driver.

    Frank - thank you. I did exactly like you said and the driver installed in
    minutes with no issues. Now why couldn't tech support at Gateway just tell
    me the same thing? WOuld have saved me hours of headache.
