    Driver for Graphics Intel 855GME - 82852/82855

    Got an older Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Laptop with Wins 7 Ultimate - serial YSNG013084

    According to the Support website it says it is onboard Intel 82852/82855

    Have downloaded stuff from the Intel website, but it says it is incompatible

    Fujitsu website only have XP drivers

    Any suggestions ?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, the Intel 855GM isn't supported under Windows 7 therefore there is no driver for it. There was however limited support for it in Vista with both Microsoft and Intel supplied XDDM drivers so there's some hope yet.

    I've had some success on Dell Latitude D505's with this graphics chipset - this involves editing the Standard VGA driver (so that windows doesn't see this as a "better" driver than the one I had installed) and installing a Vista driver.

    Here are 2 guides which may (or may not) help you. The first link is the guide I've used which I've had success with. The second guide looks like it might work also but requires a copy of Vista in order to extract the driver.

    If it's as old as a D505 then is it powerful enough to run 7 well??

    We have 2 old 505's at home for the wife and eldest boy, hers runs Ubuntu, his XP.. The ubuntu one goes ok the XP one struggles a bit now.

    Thanks

    I tried the first one

    It said it was unsuccessful and now I have lost the Display line in Device Manager

    I need it back as I have found the Win2000 folder and would like to "update" driver at this location

    Well, in the case of D505's, as long as they have the max 2GB RAM and given a large-ish 5400rpm hd (and you can justify the cost of the upgrades which most peeps won't), they'll run 7 well enough for those users who don't do anything too strenuous on them and extends the life until we can afford to replace them.

    I suppose we should retire & chuck them, but I find it difficult to throw away anything that's still serviceable.

    @leachim

    I'm sorry it didn't work. I've managed to do this several times successfully so I'm not sure what has happened in your case. At this point, it might be worth running System Restore to put the Laptop back to the state it was beforehand and maybe trying again?

    Had the same thing in an old HP the standard vga driver gives a reasonable image at the correct resolution but I wouldn't want to do anything taxing with it.
