Intel® 82865G/82845G Windows 7 Drivers




Intel stated that Intel® 82865G Graphics Controller drivers for Windows 7 is not available and discontinue the support for newer driver to be use with windows 7. However you can install it in Windows 7. Please note that the installation for the drivers varies depends on your model. I cannot tell which will work but you can try each method and see which worked for you.

1. Method 1 : Install Using Compatibility Mode.
2. Method 2 : Manual Installation.
3. Method 3 : Installing by Adding Legacy Drivers.
4. Method 4 : Installing by taking the computer system Privileges. 

For this tutorial I use Winrar software to extract the driver file.
