I had Windows XP which installed the video drivers for my Intel (R) 865G graphics chip accelerated VGA BIOS drivers.

Now however I have Windows 7 installed but it doesn't install the video card. The video card is built-in but I can't use it since it's not installed.

How can I get the driver to install?

There are no official Windows 7 drivers for that chip, so I guess it's just picking it up as "Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor"

This thread post covers an alternative solution, which seems to involve a tweaked version of the Vista drivers but it's definitely a buyer-beware situation. With Windows 7-compatible graphics cards available for as little as £20 it's not a solution I'd personally risk.
