Having latest versions of drivers for all installed hardware not only improves the overall system performance but also helps you keep your PC from going through blue screens of death (BSOD). So, it’s always important to have compatible drivers and keep installed drivers up-to-date. Users who don’t have patience to check driver updates can scan their PCs online for drivers.
Back When Windows Vista was released there were a lot of driver issues. But with Windows 7, nothing can go wrong. Though many Vista compatible drivers work perfectly in Windows 7 as well, it’s always advisable to install only Windows 7 certified drives to avoid issues. Most of the hardware manufacturers have already released the drivers. Intel also released Windows 7 compatible Graphics Media Accelerator driver (v188.8.131.525) recently and is now ready for download.
You can download this version for the following Intel desktop motherboards:
DG31GL, DG31PR, DG33BU, DG33FB, DG33TL, DG35EC, DG965MQ, DG965MS, DG965OT, DG965PZ, DG965RY, DG965SS, DG965WH, DQ33HS, DQ35JO, DQ35MP, DQ963FX, DQ963GS, DQ965CO, DQ965GF, and DQ965WC.
Users who would like to keep their Intel motherboard drivers up-to-date can download the official Intel Driver Update utility to easily scan your for outdated drivers and automatically download new drivers. The Driver Update Utility is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 as well.
