i have a pc running windows xp. i run windows 8 upgrade assistant tell that my pc can run windows 8. After i make a clean install. windows 8 remove the graphic driver (i saw in device manger that the graphic driver is microsoft basic driver, not intel driver). When i download and install the correct graphic driver,run compatibility mode windows xp, when installing, it popup an error (unknown error occured), click ok, the installation cancelled. before that, i install windows 7, it worked perfectly, no lag, driver installed, aero enable. but windows 8 i cant install xp graphic driver. Mine is intel express chipset family g33/g31 with 256 mb graphic memory

  1. XP drivers don't work on newer OSes. You should try and install the driver through Windows Update.

    It's not with the driver, it's on your Integrated Graphic Card. It can't support Windows 8 and checking it, having 256MB is very low. Much better you buy a cheap video card. Since Windows 8 can support your machine, but I doubt you feel some lag. Much better to upgrade than to stick with your machine.
