Intel 965 Graphics on my laptop

by zstar5000 / September 6, 2008 2:45 PM PDT

My Acer has Intel's 965 chipset (unfortunately), and I recently installed Age of Empires 2 for old time's sake. Problem was that some of the colors are all wrong (the game was still playable), and when I tried to play the game in 1280x800 resolution, which is the native for my laptop, it crashed.

So I thought that updating the drivers would help. Now, of course, the color problems has gotten so bad that the game is unplayable, and it still crashes on 1280x800.

Any tips/tricks, or can I just chalk this up to another round of horrible Intel drivers and try to roll them back to a previous version?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
