We just began to upgrade some older computers (2.4 Ghz, 80 Gb, 2 Gb RAM). Although they are single core processor computers, they are perfect for the educational purpose they serve. All of the drivers were easy to install except the video driver. Although the driver is not available for Windows 7, you have two options:
- Download the Intel XP driver and run the setup in Compatibility Mode from the Intel site. (Aero is NOT available) (Here)
Download the Vista driver from Here (yes it works) Extract it, go to the Device Manager and Update the driver by selecting the unzipped files. When you manually attempt to install the driver press “browse my computer for driver software”, then press “let me pick from a list of devices on my computer”. If a list comes up, select Display Adapters from the list, then find a button that says “Have Disk”. If you don’t have a list pop up, just find the “Have Disk” button. Press it, then browse to your documents folder and find the file called “ialmn5″. Select it.
The strike out above indicates the driver is no longer hosted there. You can download the driver from here
With Kelly, Jeremy and Tasha working on these computers for the last couple of days (they have went through a true discovery mode), their discoveries have made older computers run like new and saved tax payer dollars.
