install windows 7 intel graphic driver on windows 8.1
I upgraded my friend's pc from windows xp to windows 7. But the screen usually flash and popup a message on the taskbar. So i tell him to upgrade to windows 8.1 for better experience. So my question is can i install windows 7 graphic driver on windows 8.1 (the pc have onboard graphic intel g41 express chipset), because another friend of mine also upgrade to windows 8.1 but cannot install the windows xp drivers because there is an error while installing. Can i install the latest version of graphic driver and run windows 7 compatibility and install it. i can install windows vista driver on my laptop windows 8.1
orlbuckeye said:Well since the PC came with XP it probably doesn't have a driver for Windows 8 and may not have one for Windows 7.
no. the pc came with windows xp, with a graphic for windows xp, but intel make an update for windows vista, 7 if the driver support wddm. in windows 8.1 i solved the problem by installing it through device manager with folder contains driver files (not setup files). also my friends pc have a very large screen resolution: about 1650x1400, and it is very bright so hardly to see small line like in excel
