Correct Integrated Graphics Driver Win 7

  KanedAndUnable 18:05 22 Feb 2013


Can anyone please help me find the correct drivers for my integrated graphics card. I've recently upgraded Win XP to Win 7 (something I have been meaning to do for a while). The upgrade appears to have gone fine however there is an annoying 'lag' or 'judder' when scrolling a webpage or moving through pages of a folder for example. I suspect it's due to an outdated driver. My motherboard and CPU details are below:

Manufacturer Winfast Model K8M890-8237 Version
Serial Number WY9V62907006

Bridge North Bridge VIA K8M890CE Revision 00 South Bridge VIA VT8237 Revision 00

CPU Name AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+ Cpu Socket Socket AM2 (940) Max CPU Speed 3000MHz

Thanks in advance for any help,

Approach with caution, but - does this help?

You may also have some joy with - I think WinFast is a Foxconn brand.

Ian in Northampton , surprised you would give such a link. My first thought was to use device manager to search the web for driver. If that failed then using S.I.W. portable to define the GPU chip and then find the driver on the manufacturers site.

A quick Google search brought this up Click Here it is for Win7 64bit.

rdave13: well, I did say 'approach with caution'. And just because it's a Polish site doesn't necessarily mean it's bad. Using sites like that, though, is a function of how desperate you are... Or do you know for sure it's a bad site?

Ian in Northampton and chub_tor . We get the details of the mobo and CPU. If a bespoke machine then running SIW or Belarc will give clues to each component. If the machine is manufactured by the popular manufacturers then the drivers will be found there free of charge and will work. Up to KanedAndUnable now to reply to give details of the manufacturer of the PC.

Thanks guys, the 2 links suggested were dead ends. just links to 3rd party driver updater software which i don't want to install.

It's a bespoke machine. I will install Belarc. Which information do you need from the report?

SIW portable will be better. Look for gpu graphics card or monitor. SIW not compatible with 8 so can't help with the left hand tree.

Hands up. Can't find 8 compatible either. Typical of S3. Have a look here, might be worth your time.
