    Graphics Driver not installing? (Intel)


    I am having a very very old computer...

    But I done upgrades to it-
    Upgrades are -

    2GB Ram (Before 640 mb)
    A hard drive 1TB (Before 250GB)

    And Nothing.

    So, as CPU does'nt support PAE and NX bit so, I decided to install Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
    Now when I was installing my graphics driver, (Intel 82845G/GL/PE/GV) as it was compatible with Windows 8 and, when I started installing it said "Windows cannot install this driver because this does'nt support this version of windows". I downloaded many driver but nothing was compatible.

    Please help me!Please!

    Welcome to the forum!

    Your computer does not meet the minimum requirements for 8/8.1 so you are spinning your wheels trying to make it work.

    Plus ... the Win8 Consumer Preview EXPIRED in January of 2013, so it's pointless to try to install or use it now.
