AurthurDent,Ok, another discovery - and a very interesting one at that!
Apparently you can export the 855GM intel driver from a working version of Vista using DriverMax and then import it to Windows 7. Neat eh?
I just created a restore point and imported the 855GM driver using DriverMax and now have a fully functional 855GM driver with no errors reported in Device Manager:
Link Removed due to 404 Error
More info on the link below (including a link to d/l DriverMax), and see the comments on the same page for the zipped Vista driver:

Have fun peeps!
As far as I can tell, it is working fine. I havent noticed any abnormal amounts of heat. I have been running the laptop non-stop too.....I will let you know if things change.You're welcome! Enjoy!
Is you Intel SpeedStep working?
My D400 was getting quite hot, and had to install RMClock to get the cpu to clock back to 600Mhz when not under load. Without RMClock my cpu clocks at 1.7Ghz all the time, generating a fair amount of heat from the vents the right hand side of the laptop.
I am running A08 as well. So I am not sure what the difference may be. I installed Windows 7 Beta Build 7000. I do not have the latest build according to what I am reading....not sure if that makes a difference.Interesting.
Do you happen to know which bios version you've got installed? I've got A08 here.
