Windows 7 is a nice operating system, but it lacks good drivers for legacy/old products like the old Intel onboard VGA card.
Since there is no driver for your Intel VGA card, the generic VGA driver is installed for your Windows 7 operating system. This results in the very low performance index score of 1 and you cannot use any 3D functionality at all. For instance: Most of your screensavers will tell you that there is no Direct3D compatible video card installed
After some experimenting i have found out that the HP Compaq dc7700 Windows XP drivers can be installed in Windows 7 with little problems.
You will get errors/notifications and you might get the compatibility warning, just install it as if it were a Windows XP application. For more help see the Windows 7 documentation.
Your performance index score may still be 1, because it’s still a crappy vga card and probably will not be able to use Aero. But your generic vga driver is gone and you [B]will be able to use some 3d[/B] in Windows 7.

I also have been doing that since I got Windows 7 on my dell B130 that doesn’t have drivers for W7. I had to download the driver from Dell site and then unzip the file into a folder and then change the .exe to run in compatibility mode in run windows 7 in xp sp3 compatibility mode and was able to install and run the driver along with those errors not as much but those errors reporting back but it did work as well.
