Display driver - GMA500

Post by irads »

Alternative display driver optimized for GMA500 can be downloaded at http://www.fit-pc2.com/download/xp-driv ... 1_1009.zip

It generally provides better performance than the IEGD display driver.

Depends how are you going to use the computer. GMA has better performance, but IEGD works correctly without monitor attached.

IEGD is an abbreviation for "Intel Embedded Graphic Drivers". It's just a name :)
I suggest that in your specific case you use GMA drivers, and only if they do not work, switch to IEGD drivers.
