    Intel mobile (r) 910/915 drivers for windows 8


    Hi, I recently installed windows 8 release preview on a dell inspiron b130 and everything works fine, except when I press windows + p or go to screen resolutions to hookup my tv. It says to reinstall or check my video card driver. This driver ( for intel mobile (r) 910/915 express chipset series) has not been update since 07, and I can't find any downloads for windows 8 online. Please help me get an updated driver or a workaround to get my monitor projecting onto my tv.

    I don't know whether it'll be possible.

    The latest drivers from Intel for those graphics are for XP (XDDM). Windows 7 could use XDDM drivers, but without Aero Glass support. Win8 requires WDDM drivers (1.0 is Vista, 1.1 Win7, 1.2 Win8). They don't exist for those graphics. They probably will never exist.

    Unless there's some way to get the generic VGA drivers to give you the features you need, you may be out of luck.

    One of the drawbacks to the Release Preview is that it doesn't include the compatibility check that you get with the Upgrade Assistant from the RTM (final) version. I suggest that you download and run that. Bad news is expected.

    Sorry, but there aren't any Intel 915GM drivers for Win8 -- and it's likely that there won't be.

    Intel didn't write new ones for Win7, but allowed the XPDM drivers to be used.

    MS removed XPDM compatibility from Win8 -- so, those drivers simply will not work.

    I used to have an old (XP-era) Fujitsu tablet PC with that chipset and tried every way possible to get the "Win7" drivers to work -- and failed.

    is there any possible way to alter the XP drivers to support windows 8, or vice versa. or is there any sort of workaround to get vga to work (like a usb to vga adapter)
