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.
First off, your minimum specs should be adiqute for the Windows 8 BBD driver. I am guessing that you are using the Driver that I provided and not Windows 8. If you are using my driver, then there is little hope that it would run because of your specs. Of course, if it did run, it would slow down your PC to the piont were any apps that you are running would be 10x slower. That is the difference in speed becuase the driver is STAI and not WDDM or BBD. STAI drivers don't have any 'fake video' ram. This means that the processes have to be worked through only the Intel 915 '128MB' GPU, instead of the aid from the CPU. WDDM are hardware based without any other help and can perform these processes natively. Windows BBD drivers are software based 'liar' drivers which fake the entire system's ram and capacity to 64MB and get instructions from the CPU. Everything about Aero and BBD is virtual. Then again Windows is.
If you really want to run aero- you WILL regret it. Have a drive partioned or a spare drive and install the driver. The only way to bypass it is to change the registry settings, but it might screw up some of your apps. This is only a project, so its hard to tell what might happen.
I just finished loading up a full release copy of Windows 8 on my Asus Eee 1000HD, only to find the 915GM isn't supported by anyone (except you). The most recent link to your driver appears to be dead. I'd love to get my hands on a copy to test with the release version of Windows 8!
Again another person that looking for a 915GM driver for Windows 8! I am using VAIO-VGNFS315B, Windows is running just fine except graphic card.. I am using Basic Display and Windows seems fine and working flawless, except video playback (I assume that the lack of drivers are responsible)..
Can I get a copy for the drivers to try too? Make something about us pls, we are so many people looking for that..
Same here i have a Eee PC 1000HD and Windows 8 is working fine, except the Video Driver, is not working.
I am suprised Windows 8 is working so well on this 900 Mhz Netbook...
Hi, I to have a portege r200 on windows 8 hampered only by video playback. If anyone could kindly point me to the windows 8 bbd driver or email it to me I would be extremely grateful. Thanks to all with the knowledge dedication and kindness for finding these solutions.
Hi there, I am so grateful for the effort you have put into helping people with this driver issue. I hope you have the patience to help one more person.. I've tried all the links you have given in the past and they are all dead.
I would love to get the drivers to suit:
Windows 7 Home 32 bit
Intel 915 graphics
Or if anyone else has a copy they can send, that would be great too. If I get some myself I can pass them on..
