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.

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

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.

It says "The system does not meet the minimum requirements"

I upload driver (64bit version) on my Dropbox and here is link: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/33615683/Win7Vista_64_1517171.exe
Unpack it using Total Commander. Right click on Setup.exe and choose Properties. Click on Compatibility tab and check "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and choose Windows 7. Also check "Run this program as an administrator" at the bottom of the same tab. Click OK and run setup. I did not change anything, this is original Intel driver I download and saved on my external hard drive in 2011 year.
PS. sorry for my bad English

Thanks for trying to explain every thing so clearly. However, mine is 32 Bit Windows and Intel 4 Series Express as opposed to you 64 Bit Mobile Series.
Here's a gift for your trouble
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/53728111/Fences_v1.01.exe
I saw that you have worked to organize your desktop neatly. This makes it easier. Its called Fences(by Startdock)
v1.01 was free but now they pulled it down as they released the premium Fences 2.0. It's a little difficult to find the earlier version. Just try it you'll love it.
