Your laptop has intel 915gm graphics, and intel hasn't released a driver for it since XP and has stated they won't be making any more because of it's age, so you're out of luck unfortunately.

If thats the case what a bummer. Its and old laptop I got on Ebay but it serves its purpose for where and how I use it. So its not the end of the world if no one else comes up with any other ideas.
So thanks !!

Just install XP on it and go from there. You really don't need Win 8 for Netflix.

I guess I forgot to mention I just installed Windows 8 on the machine, hence the error message.
