Acer Travelmate 5742 - Intel VGA Driver
Right, I have an Acer TravelMate 5742 that I'm trying to set up, but the graphics driver just doesn't want to play.
I check in the device manager and it says:
ARGH .. I've tried many different things (different driver versions, chipset updates, etc, but still get the same thing).
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on the this system.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

I'm guessing you've downloaded drivers from here?
To be honest though, your problem isn't driver related. It appears there's a hardware conflict. I would try resetting the BIOS to default and make sure (if available) that Windows itself manages hardware devices and not the BIOS. Any modern OS (XP or later) should be left to manage all hardware by itself.

Yup, downloaded the drivers from there, just trying using a drivers disk created on an OOTB Travelmate seeing if that makes any difference.

Meh .. looks like it could be a 64bit W7 vs 32bit W7 issue (as in my licenses are all 32bit and the machines came with 64bit .. meh)
I have tried downloading the 32bit drivers, but it doesn't seem to like me. I'll see how I get on!

I had this same problem, always with Intel graphics chips when deploying Windows 7 via MDT 2010. That is, until today!! After a long time searching the Internet I found the solution.
You need to delete the driver for the 'AMD pci express (3GIO) filter driver' from the MDT driver database. Something about it screws things up. In MDT you need to look for the 'Advanced Micro Devices Inc System Atipcie.inf' file - there may be multiple ones so delete them all.
If you want to sort out a machine that already has the problem, go to Device Manager, under system devices you should see the 'AMD pci express (3GIO) filter driver'. Right click it and uninstall it. Tick the box to delete the actual driver files. Reboot the system and you should see loads of new devices suddenly discover
Hope this helps people
