Ok, my radeon 9800 pro died on me, and shows such bad distortion on screen now and freezed all of my games, i had to switch to onboard gfx.
The onboardness is this fellow right here:
Intel 82865G Graphics Controller
Well ok heres the problem:
I have fully uninstalled ALL of my ati drivers, and right now the highest this onboard card is allowing me to go is 8-bit color(256 colors), and 1024*768 resolution. The properties do not identify my onboard video. I guess in order for it to show proper color, I need drivers, well I have both the install cd with the drivers and I also tryed the ones from intel sight, and both FAIL to install the driver.
In the middle of installation, it says an error:
An unknown error has occured during the installation process.
Setup will close now.
Well, this is frustraiting, because i want more fun with onboard lol, and im waiting for my 9800 to be replaced. I tryed many different driver versions for this card and they always fail to install! I even tryed it the windows search way, and it says that the installing the driver is not digital signed to work for the windows start-up screen. Mah! I want my full onboard experience!
EDIT: i was able to play hl1 and thats it, but only under software renderer, and 640 is huighes tit let me go
