drivers - Windows 7 x64 support for Intel GMA 3650 (or GMA 3600)

  • Loom

    I recently purchased an Intel D2700 MUD motherboard and I cannot find drivers for the Win7 x64 integrated graphics (Intel GMA 3650 aka PowerVR sgs545). The accompanying CD contains Win7 x32 version only. When I run it I got an error:

    This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.

    I tried to use online utility Intel Driver Update Utility Graphics. I used Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer without success. First, UAC prompt appear, and then endlessly spinning progress-bar with text "Analyzing computer...". The text in UAC prompt is:

    Program file name: System Requirements Lab
    Verified publisher: Husdawg, LLC

    I downloaded this utility (intel_srldetect_4.5.5.0) and started it from my hard disk. I got an error:

    A network error occured while attempting to read from the file:

    Standard VGA driver works for this video card but without hardware acceleration:

    Hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver, which could slow game performance. Make sure you have the latest video card driver installed and that hardware acceleration is turned on.

    Where I can get appropriate driver?

    I installed the beta (GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5) from the @someonewhoknowsstuff's answer in safe mode, because in usual mode I've got an error:

    An error occurred while registering one or more components.

    Setup will exit.

    After installing OS didn't start but began crashing on start with BSOD:

    A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.



    Technical information:
    * * * STOP: 0x000000CE (0xFFFFF88007039C68, 0x0000000000000008, 0xFFFFF88007039C68, 0x0000000000000000)


    Thus, I forced to remove this driver. (As @tester said, cause of BSOD is my 4GB RAM. So, reducing amount of memory down to 2GB can make the driver work.)

    Intel does not support 64-bit with that motherboard's graphics chipset. That's the official line.

    Judging by version of the existing 32-bit driver (v, you may be able to get away with using the "Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 Driver for Windows 7* 64 bit", as it reports "This driver package contains version (".

    I've dealt with Intel drivers for many years now, and a) they have a duality when it comes to version numbers, and b) they are very good at bundling similar drivers together.

    Often the driver 'version' is the bundle's version (v15.12.xxxx), which contains one or more drivers with their own version numbers (ie v8.14.xxxx); or something to that effect, I've never hammered it down exactly. :)

    Unfortunately, if that one doesn't work you may be out of luck.

    search google for "GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5". tested on Acer Aspire One D270-26Dkk with Intel atom N2600, 4Gb DDR3 A-data 1333Mhz, under windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

    Good luck!


    you can force the driver to install editing the .inf file, in this particular case: igdlh64.inf

    1. from device manager (Run -> DevMgmt.msc) right click and copy the Hardware ID of the display adapter
    2. insert it (in my case PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0BE1; you can keep the substring if you want/have it - this is enough to corectly identify the vga onboard) in the [Intel.Mfg.NTamd64] section of the .inf file replacing one, any or even all the existing hardware_IDs, so you will be able to try all the drivers for all the supported boards.
    3. replace the mames that will appear after identification with your own in order to be able to test them one by one in the section ; ; Localizable Strings ;
    4. manually install the drivers one by one, then restart, and try the next one (this is why you need to give them different names at the end of the .inf file)

    if the driver is working with your board, you will see in DevMgmt.msc the message "This device is working properly" otherwise, you will get a 43 code - device was shut down by windows.

    good luck trying any driver!

    NB: under a 64bit OS, you need x64 drivers for a hardware. you may try to use a virtual machine with win32 installed, but.. what`s the point?

    It's not really an Intel GPU but an integrated/rebadged PowerVR SGX545, so Intel doesn't seem to have much control over it. They do not make 64-bit drivers for this GPU, and haven't made any plans to do so public.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm using a Shuttle XS36V with that CPU, now as a low-power server. The same GPU (albeit slower clocked) was available in an older Atom, and there are still the same issues today with that 32-bit driver. I don't expect much here.

    Intel recently released a "test" driver for x64 Windows.

    Title: Intel® HD Graphics Test Driver for Windows 7 & Windows 8 64 (zip)



    Operating Systems:Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8, 64-bit

    The driver GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5 works for me! I'm using a PC with Intel Atom Dual Core N2600, Chipset Mobile Intel NM10, 2gb memory DDR3, and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits.

    Search on Google for GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5 and install normal.

    PS: the video driver have a little problem loading screen. It is slow and shows a black screen for +- 3 secs before show the complete screen.

  • David works fine with 2GB RAM. 4GB can not be used with this driver (BSOD).

    I have tested it with three different CPU's and two chipsets (ICH10 and NM10), all have the same result.

    Sorry to give you the bad news, folks!

    The so-called "Intel" GMA3600 actually was NOT designed by Intel, but is instead a PowerVR SGV545 licensed from British-based Imagination Technologies (

    While Intel Corporation makes its own graphics programming documentation freely available (, Imagination Technologies considers its own programming documentation "Confidential Information" (a.k.a. military "Top Secret"). Imagination Technologies refuses to provide 64-bit drivers for its PowerVR graphics cores and is jealous of keeping its own documentation strictly under lock and key and of employing the long arm of the law to insist that its documentation remain Top Secret.

    Plain and simple, folks. This is why Intel CANNOT produce drivers for the GMA3600 for ANY 64-bit operating system platform, whether it be Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, open-source Linux, you name it. Period.

    Where do I find a working Windows 7 driver for the Intel 82865G graphics chipset?
  • Nick Kavadias

    I have an old Dell Inspiron 3000 which came with Windows XP. It's still quite decent, 3 GHz P4, 2 GB RAM.

    I've installed Windows 7 RTM (x86) and the best resolution it will do is 640x480 with a generic driver.

    It has an integrated Intel 8265G graphics card, and only PCI slots on the motherboard. I cannot stick another graphics card on it.

    Can I get a working driver for Windows 7? Official Dell website only lists Windows XP drivers

    Am I destined to have the suckiness of Windows XP on this computer forever?

    I am putting this out there in case someone else runs into this issue.

    The Intel chipset is on-board. I discovered the reason for the crappy resolution in Windows 7 was that the memory to share with the video card was set to 1 MB in the BIOS. I changed this to 8 MB (the maximum) and after the PC rebooted I was able to select a higher resolution.

    I was about to suggest to check Intel's site for drivers, but they don't have any Vista or Windows 7 driver neither, the latest driver dates back to 2005.

    Your best bet is to use a graphics card with PCI connection.

    Download the latest Windows XP driver for the intel 865 graphic card. (I used the XP Professional version) download

    1. After extracting the driver (I recommend the .zip file over the .exe), go to "Device Manager" in Vista or Windows 7.

    Easiest way to get there is "Win key + pause/break" -> "Device Manager"... Second easiest way is to click "Start", right click "Computer" -> "Properties" -> "Device Manager" Third way is to fumble around in the control panel until you find it... good luck... 3. Click on the arrow to the left of "Display Adapters" and you should see the "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" drop down.

    1. Right click on the "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" and choose "Update Driver Software"

    2. Choose "Browse my computer for driver software"

    3. Choose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"

    4. Find the "Have Disk" button (lower right corner) and click on it

    5. Browse to the location where you extracted the Intel 865 XP driver zip file and go into the win2000 folder, then choose "Open"

    6. You should see a driver in the main box now, that says it's for the Intel 865 Graphic Adapter. Choose "Next" and it will begin the driver installation.

    7. Once the driver is installed, reboot and you are all done!
