Hello, i recently upgraded to windows 8 pro from win 7, and i am trying to install the graphics drivers for the "Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family", but it won't install and displays a message that, "An unknown error has occured". I had no problems in installing the driver in Windows 7, but now in Windows 8, it refuses to install.

Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

If you search a bit on the Web, you'll find that Intel made no drivers newer than XP for those graphics. Windows 7 can use XP drivers (with no Aero Glass effects), but Win8 only permits WDDM 1.0 (Vista) drivers or newer. I know of no hacks to circumvent that.

The only option that I can suggest is adding a discrete graphics card that has supported drivers, if you have a desktop system.

Sorry that I can't be more encouraging.
