Is there a Vista driver for Intel® 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller (Dell Dimension 2400)?

Yes I know, others have asked about this, but I can't seem to find a straight answer, just lots of indirectness (or maybe I'm just missing the obvious ... again).

Thanks.

You could try the intel graphics detection tool here:

Vista should have driver support for this graphics chip by default, this is why you don't see many drivers available for download for vista.

My resolution was to go buy a PCI (not PCIe or PCI-E) GeForce 8400 GS. Fortunately J&R had them for 65 bucks, and I live in NYC so I just went there and picked it up. Vista's built in driver was fine for this card.

Yes, Kiltboy, I checked Intel already and it gave me the same model number, but the intel site also said that I have to ask the OEM manufacturer for drivers - in this case Dell. However I checked the Dell site before I even came here, and they have no Vista support for this model or anything in/on it. And you're right, Vista does support it, but just barely. I was unable to get greater than 800x600. I can survive without "Aero" but being stuck at low rez was giving me nightmeres of StrongBad singing about "Scrooolll buttonnnns"  Thanks tho.

NoBus, seriously, did you think I'm so pathetically stupid that I wouldn't go to support.dell.com? Thanks for the "Wizzard" caliber advice. ¬_¬
