    i have a dell inspiron n4030 core i3
    under the display adapter tab 2 devices are listed

    intel(r)946gz express chipset family (microsoft corporation-wddm1.0)

    intel hd graphics


    the first device (946gz)

    says
    location pci bus 0 device 22 function 0
    windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems
    code 43

    the problem i am experiencing is very slow boot up abut 2 min
    i asked a tech frnd of mine and he says slog boot up is due to some driver error
    and this is the only issue i can find
    VAT IS THIS DEVICE AND WHY IS IT DISABLED
    HOW TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE

    ven i got the system its boot up was less than 30 sec
    it ot infected and i returned it to shop and they installed win 7 again

    i had checked the first installation and their were no issues under device manager than
    i know the support people have installed slightly different drivers coz earlier i didnt get the graphic opyions in task bar and right clicking on desktop

    CHECKED THE INTEL SITE DOWNLOADED UTILITY FOR DETECTING DRIVERS IT GAVE NO RESULTS
    DISPLAY DRIVER DETAILS (FOR OTHER DEVICE HD GRAPHIC WHICH IS WOKING)

    DRIVER DETAILS
    INTEL
    DATE 28-07-2010
    VERSION 8.15.10.2189



    (the system is running fine and i am much satisfied it can play my fav old games and sound , display are fine for me)

    i tried updating drivers by clicking the update driver button and letting
    windows search on net
