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.

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.
