Hi:

 

As was posted above, the Intel GMA-900 video adapter is not completely Windows 7 capable.

 

However, here is a litle secret I will share with you...you should be able to use this notebook driver to work without doing much of anything special.

 

Unfortunately, it only works for 32 bit operating systems. I know the drivers says 64 bit too but it doesn't work.

 

So, if you installed W7 Enterprise 32 bit, here is what you need to do...

 

Download this file:

Run the file and it will give you an error--Operating System Not Supported, I believe.

 

Close out of that, and click on your standard VGA adapter in the device manager. Click on the driver tab. Click on Update Driver. Select the "Browse my computer for software" method, and browse to C:\SWSetup\sp34749.

 

Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked, and the driver should install.

 

Now you should be able to change your screen resolution and you should have graphics acceleration.

Aero will never be available as the GMA-900 does not meet all the specs for Aero.

Check the last answer here:

your pc's specs:

so you have a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900
