I just installed Windows 7. My motherboard is an Intel D865GvHZ. The Realtec Audio Driver which I used for XP is working but the Intel Extreme Graphics Driver is not getting installed. I checked Intel's site and my motherboard is on the discontinued board list, so there are no drivers available for Windows 7.

What should I do?

Can I use any video cards so that I can use Windows 7?

Which other graphics driver may be compatible for this board for Windows 7?

I believe you can't find a Windows 7 driver for this chipset because it doesn't exist. It's too old for them to have bothered making one. –  Shinrai Oct 18 '10 at 21:15

Use 3dPchip, life safer of an application. Just beware that the drivers may not be WHQL certified / tested for compatibility with your chip unlike the drivers provided by Intel on their site.

This does not really answer the authors question –  Ramhound Jun 23 at 10:38
    
If you bother to use 3dpchip before down voting my answer you will see it will search its DB for a compatible driver that matches the host OS. "I checked Intel's site and my motherboard is on the discontinued board list, so there are no drivers available for Windows 7." & "Which other graphics driver may be compatible for this board for Windows 7?" Before anyone is allowed to down vote a answer, perhaps the OP should be given a chance to try the solution and reply back. I will bet money my solution will work....... –  OxygenIT Jun 23 at 10:46
    
Except I didn't downvote your answer. The author submitted this question 5 years ago. Its safe to say the author will never provide the required feedback. If I had downvoted this answer. It would be because you didn't provide a link to 3dPchip. It is far to easy to find the incorrect website of a project. –  Ramhound Jun 23 at 11:42
    
Then please accept my apology Ramhound5, I didnt see that is was so old, will check before posting next time. I understand people can find incorrect / illegitimate links, but lets face it, if you cant use common sense / a legit source like FileHippo, your better off leaving this to someone else :P –  OxygenIT Jun 23 at 17:19
