    I have a Dell Inspiron 700m which has Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (Integrated) and I went to the Intel site to download the driver for it, but it was only available for XP, so I ran that in XP Compatibility Mode. Now when it asks me to restart to finish the installation, I do, and when it starts up again the screen goes blank once it says "Installing Drivers" Can anybody help me? I want to get the video controller device driver to work...

    Your chipset is the 855GME.

    Apparently the XP drivers are of no use under Win7. Vista drivers may work, but the only Vista drivers I've read of are built-in to Vista. They aren't available for download. The above thread gives a hack for extracting the drivers, but that is of interest if you have access to a running version of Vista on a similar notebook PC.

    Maybe Microsoft will include a driver in the final version of Win7.
