Systems with integrated graphics often use a third party chip that interacts with the integrated graphics controller to provide TV-out or DVI (Digital Flat Panel connector) functionality. AIM (Add-In Module) drivers for supported chips are included in the standard Intel® Extreme Graphics Driver package and are automatically installed during the main graphics driver installation.
To determine what third party TV-out or DVI chip is used:
See the table below:
- Make sure the Intel® Extreme Graphics Drivers PV 13.x or lower are installed.
- Start Device Manager (Start » Settings » Control Panel » System » Hardware » Device Manager).
- Locate the heading for Intel® AIM 3.0 Codec.
- Expand this heading by clicking the + (plus sign) to the left of Intel AIM 3.0 Codec.
- Abbreviated names for the TV-out and DVI chips are listed here.
||These instructions work with Windows* Vista, Windows* XP or Windows* 2000. Earlier versions of Windows do not display the AIM devices in Device Manager. These instructions do not work with Windows* 7 or newer operating systems.|
||If the "Intel AIM 3.0 Codec" section does not appear in Device Manager and the graphics drivers are installed, then no TV-out or DVI chips have been detected or you are using a driver version higher than PV13.x.|
