When a system with the Intel® 810 Chipset family or Intel® 815 Chipset family graphics drivers is upgraded to Windows XP*, the Windows XP Upgrade Advisor displays a message in the Control Panel. If you see Intel® Graphics Technology does not support Windows XP, you should update the graphics driver. The full details report indicates that the user should upgrade this item prior to installing Windows XP. This issue only occurs when upgrading from Windows 98*, Windows 98 SE*, or Windows Me*.
Since graphics drivers are specific to the particular operating system that is currently installed, the graphics drivers cannot be upgraded prior to installing Windows XP.
The message also indicates the Intel Graphics Technology icon in Control Panel disables during the upgrade process, as described by Microsoft* Knowledgebase article ID Q283551*. But, the graphics driver still functions in Windows XP.
You should continue installing Windows XP. Graphics drivers for the Intel 810 and 815 Chipset families are included with Windows XP. To restore the Intel Graphics Technology icon to Control Panel, you can install graphics drivers, version 6.4.1 or later, after the upgrade to Windows XP is complete. The drivers are available at support.intel.com.
An AGP Digital Display (ADD) card is an adapter card that can be inserted into the AGP port of Intel® 845G chipset family-based systems. ADD cards allow configurations for TV-out, LVDS, and TMDS output (for example: TVs and digital displays/flat panels). Combined with an Intel® Extreme Graphics Driver, ADD cards are used to display system output to a television, digital display, or simultaneously to a monitor and digital display.
- ADD cards with DVI support flat panel displays and some High Definition TVs with DVI
- ADD cards with TV-out support standard definition in both NTSC and PAL formats
- ADD cards are compatible only with systems containing the Intel 845G chipset family and an AGP slot. ADD cards fail to load when inserted into other AGP compliant systems (for example, Intel® 815 Chipset).
Unless purchased with an Intel® Desktop Board, direct your technical support questions for ADD card hardware to the original manufacturer of the card. If the issue is with the graphics driver software, Intel offers email Support.
ADD cards are available using one of the following methods:
End users with systems based on the Intel® 845G Chipset family should contact their system manufacturer or local computer reseller for availability of individual ADD cards.
