    I'm running a dell inspiron 1545 (vista 32).

    When trying to open the intel graphics driver properties it won't open (no error message)
    When I try to change the display settings I get the error message "the currently selected graphics driver can not be used (written for a older version of windows)
    When I run dixdiag I get the error that direct input isn't responding.
    I tried to download drivers from intel but I got the error message that my machine doesen't meet the system requirements (I'm not entirly sure I picked the right software)

    All the drivers from the dell site appear to do nothing and I've updated from direct 9 to 11.

    Still no fix

    If anyone can help me fix it give me your email and I'll gift you a itunes voucher or something, this problem is causing huge problems for me.

    Much appreciated

    Go to Start - All Programs - Control Panel - Device Manager, then click the + in Display Adapters.

    What's the description listed there?

    Double-click that description to open its properties window, then click Driver(tab).

    What's the driver version and date listed there?

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    The Dell support site for the Dell Inspiron 1545 with Windows Vista(32-bit) has 2 graphics drivers listed:

    ATI M92 - version 8.563 and release date 03/17/2009.

    Intel GM45 - version 7.15.10.1637 and release date 05/21/2009.

    And yes, I entered the service tag and downloaded the driver closest to the bottom of the video tab. No joy I'm afraid.
