Fujitsu Vista Video Drivers

I just upgraded my Fujitsu Lifebook T4020 to Vista Ultimate.  However, I cannot get the image to appear on the monitor while in the docking station.  I am assuming it is a video driver, but cannot find any updated Fujitsu drivers that take care of the issue.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

What kind of Video card?  It sounds like an nVidia.

It's an intel 910GM chipset.

It doesn't appear there is a Vista driver out for this yet beyond what MS is providing out of the box.

Just wanted to clarify, it should have Intel 915GM chipset, not 910GM.

There are no drivers available for Vista yet, but I've installed many XP-drivers to Vista with compatibility mode.

So when you have the setup-file, right click on it, choose Properties
Then Combatibility-tab
Tick boxes:
Run this compatibility mode, WinXP SP2
And also run as administrator
OK

I wouldn't install XP video drivers in compat mode - the entire display subsystem on Vista has been re-written from the ground up and supports features in drivers much differently than XP did.

This is why the vendors are way behind - they need to pretty-much rewrite the drivers completely to play nice in Vista.
