Asus Eee PC 1001P Intel 3150 Graphics BSOD

I've got an EE PC 1001P in for repair but no matter what I do I can't get the graphics drivers to work. I've tried downloading from the Asus website and also from Intel. I just get a BSOD every time I install the driver with a top code of 0x00000007F

Running windows 7 starter.

I've ran all Windows Updates
Updated the BIOS (1202)
Installed all ASUS provided drivers for all other hardware.

Can you confirm you are downloading the driver from...

You can also download the driver direct from Intel...

Are the Chipset drivers also up to date?

Hi Andrew,

Yes I can confirm that I've downloaded the drivers from both the locations above and that the chipset drivers are up to date.

Just to confirm I've downloaded and installed all of the available updates from the Windows 7 section of the ASUS site.

Many Thanks

It may be worth going back and testing previous versions of the driver...

I've dual installed Ubuntu and everything works great. I'm tempted to do a complete re-install of Windows 7 Starter but the customer doesn't have the install, and the recover partition on the machine has been removed.

Thanks for your help so far guys, keep you comments coming.
