    Intel GMA 4500 Driver (Win 8 - Core 2 Duo)


    I bought a mercury motherboard(PIG41L) featuring Intel G41 Express Chipset and on board GMA 4500.

    I have installed the Intel Graphic Media Accelerator Driver(Win 7 32-Bit) But The display is still kind of blurry or shaky.
    The default resolution is 1024 * 768 but the optimum resolution is 1280 * 1024. When I try to change the resolution, I have a huge number of choices which wasn't there earlier.

    Where can I find the drivers for Win 8 RTM.

    Intel doesn't support those drivers in 8, Windows might (essentially, Intel has decided they are too old to support anymore).

    Clean 7 install? What about Windows Update drivers?

    Completely clean.. I had Win 8 RTM. Formatted the system drive and installed Win 7 Ultimate.
    Windows says that my drivers are up to date
    Click image for larger version
    As you can see.. this is what happens when I install the latest drivers from intel.
    No screen flashing, no resolution changing, no aero activation...There is not detail describing the installation of Graphic driver.

    Use the Vista drivers.

    My Acer AS5735 laptop (a Core 2 Duo) has the 4500 graphics
    chip, and I ended up using the Vista driver that came with the
    laptop originally.

    Later Intel drivers don't work properly on Win 8 CP, and the generic
    Windows driver is pathetic at best.
