Hi:

 

You can use this chipset driver...

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=20019&ProdId=816&lang=eng&OSVersion=%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%09%0A%09%09%09%09%09%09%09&DownloadType=

 

The Intel GMA900 graphics adapter is not 100% Vista or W7 capable.  I can give you the magic trick to get it to work so that you can change the screen resolution and have graphics acceleration but you will not have Windows Aero.

 

Here is the workaround...

 

Download and run this driver.  You will probably get an unsupported operating system error.  Close out of any error windows.

 

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdDetails/?sp4ts.oid=447348&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3Didx%253D%257CswItem%253Dob_47264_1%257CswEnvOID%253D2096%257CitemLocale%253D%257CswLang%253D%257Cmode%253D%257Caction%253DdriverDocument&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken

 

Now, go to the device manager, click to expand the Display Adapters category.  Click on the Standard VGA Adapter.

 

Click on the driver tab.  Click on Update Driver.  Select the Browse my computer for driver software method, and browse to the driver folder that was created when you ran the file.

 

That folder will be located in C:\SWSetup\sp34749.  Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked, and the driver should install.

 

After you reboot, the graphics should be fine--just no Aero.

Re: graphic driver for hp pavilion ze2000

Hi, @nello1 :

 

What is the product number of your ze2000?

 

The product number can be found on the same sticker as the serial number.

 

Some have different graphics adapters than the one for which the driver I posted worked on.

 

If your model has the same graphics, that driver should have worked.

Hi:

 

See if this graphics driver works for your ze2290ea.

 

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34468.exe

 

Install it by using the same method I posted above, but browse to C:\SWSetup\sp34468....
