Using XP drivers with Windows 7

So i installed Windows 7 on my Latitude D410. The install took a short time and went ok, with the exception that it was using a generic driver due to missing the Intel 915GM video driver. The resolution seemed a bit off and wasn’t as crisp as it should have been. Anyway, after performing a Windows Update the system downloaded and installed the intel driver which caused my system to put on a performance of various colors and shades.

It turns out Dell didn’t make any Vista drivers for the D410, however i did some searching and it turns out you can use the XP 915GM Driver for your system by running it in “Compatibilty Mode”. Right click the driver’s .exe file and select “Properties” then click the “Compatibility” Tab and select “Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP”.
