Hi,

We have a server running Server 2008 SP2 32 bit with an intel G45 graphics card.  The system keeps freezing from the graphics driver.  Any ideas for a driver replacement?

Thank you.

Are you using the "upgrade driver software" option in device manager, or have you been downloading drivers from the motherboard manufacuturer?

Downloaded drivers from the motherboard manufacture.  Windows update does not offer any updates for the card.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

A lot of the time vista or windows 7 drivers will work with server 2008, is the video driver the only thing missing? Sometimes with integreated hardware the right chipset drivers are also required.
