Our group has created possibly the first WDDM Video Driver (.exe) for Intel Mobile 915- sorry no 910. Works only on Windows 7, major bugs in Windows Vista. Please Email me if you want it. Bugs once in a while (please email if you find any). This is still in its infancy, but in about a year if intel signs it, I can had it out freely (hopefully). I reserve all rights.
Intel did not devote their resources so it was up to us to produce the media accelerator. In any case almost any board supports Windows (R) Areo, my assumption that, like our driver, it makes the processor really bogged down.
The Driver that I have produced allows Areo and DVD Maker. The program changes Intel (R) GMA 915 to Intel (R) 945, thus tricking most applications. We have also established a Scheduler and many more features. So please Email me for a copy of the updated Intel (R) 915 .EXE driver.
Hello I have an acer laptop with this graphics card, Intel 915. He is with vista home premium without aero glass. I put the Windows 7 once but no aero glass in order better to stay even, for that visual basic matte blue sickens too fast. At some time I have been looking for a solution, because the driver that Acer says is designed not to handle aircraft in any way. I tried to find the vista beta 2 for download, but without success. Do not think more easily. I tried to find a driver (Lakeport) for the beta version of Vista, but also without success.
After much searching, here, today I find the link to these post of yours stating that managed to create the first WDDM driver for that video card. I was very pleased to know.
Ever thought of getting rid me of this notebook is good, runs everything I need, but as I've got used to the aero glass (on my desktop gets pretty thing in the glass windows 7) the visual basic windows "lost grace" .
Please excuse my English. I'm Brazilian.
Just updating the information. I went back to the notebook in Windows 7. Windows 7 Home Premium runs much better on my notebook than vista home premium.
I would love to send me the driver that supports WDDM and allows me to use the aero glass.
I got a lot of progress down- now to finalize it.
The task bar still needs a little work, as I said, however the driver does appear to hold. (It is extremely slow) I am currently in the process of switching to another project, but I think that I can get this done in time before Fall. I see that I am gathering a lot of attention here! Thank you guys for all of your support!
I'll try to get a download link for you by my next post thank you!
By the way, this driver works on all platforms. I have tested it on the mobile 915GL and am currently using it as I type this post. You can always email me at "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com" if you have any questions or concerns regarding the official release if the driver. As for the legality, you can also email me as well. The version that will be downloadable will be ver. 18.104.22.168. I am testing the drivers and will continue to until Fall of 2011, untill then please hang tight. Thank you all for your support!

i appreciate that still somebody cares about that problem. Where can I download the betas? Would it be much work for you to make it compatible with 4:3 screens. My notebook is an HP nc4200 and it maches with all your requirements but the screen-resolution. Will I never get aero to work?
You will most likely is all that I can say. The driver was made for a dell with this current screen resolution that I had provided on my last post. I am unsure if it will work. The truth is that if you have an 915GMA chipset and 128MB of VIDEO RAM, then of course it will work.
The real problem is that since I have modified Windows, that puts me in a hot spot for all sorts of 'legal soup', mostly comming from Microsoft but also from Intel. Which as you can see, I can't tell you where my website is until it has been cleared up, see here- http://www.microsoft.com/About/Legal/EN/US/IntellectualProperty/UseTerms/Default.aspx http://www.microsoft.com/About/Legal/EN/US/IntellectualProperty/UseTerms/Default.aspx . I also can't sell it or 'mass distrubute' it.
However, I can give you the source code that I used if it interests anybody.
The source code would be interesting, what do you compile it with?
Would it be possible to release your modification as a patch file for the original Dell Driver thus sidestepping any legal issues to do with distributing the driver itself?
I do scripting with Perl and have absolutely loved programming in UNIX systems, however I had compiled these unoffiicial drivers using my copy of Microsoft's Visual Basic 2008. Initially, the .EXE that I used to do the very first installation back in 2009 was a piece of cake on one of my friend's Dell laptop. All that he had to do was run the application in Safe Mode then reboot- Instant aero and access to a heapload of other apps. Unfortunately even if I put in in as a patch then Dell would run after me for making an 'UNOFFICIAL PATCH/ UPDATE TO THE SYSTEM'. Therefore, if you are looking for the sourcecode, I will slowly but surely be updating this website continously over the next few days. I really am hurting to give out these beta drivers but it seems that I am held back by all these restrictions out there.
Also, update on Beta 4.1- for those who have found my website or have recieved my emails-
Beta 915GMA now supports a FEW Open GL drivers so that you will be able to play popular apps like Minecraft or other Java dependable games.
- Improved speed with '915Blaster v6'
- Now supports WDM 1.1 with the execption of Halo 2, Call of Duty 4, and Crysis- all of which are too heavy to be played on a 915 chipset anyways.
I want intel Fraphics Media Accelerater driver for 910/915GM which can support windows 7 Ultimate x86.
In erly days of windows it was downloading it automatically with windows update.
But now it dont. Not everyone is rich enough to purchase new pc each time.
I cant play games without video drivers .Please help me.
I am Awaiting .... Thanks.
