Tips for Entering Problem Descriptions

When entering your problem description, it's best to be clear and concise. The e-mail auto-response system will give better search results when the description does NOT include extraneous or unimportant facts. Here are some examples of GOOD problem descriptions.

If you have a question, ask it directly:

  • Does the Intel® 810 chipset support Linux*?
  • What video modes does the Intel 815E chipset support?
  • Where can I find the latest graphics drivers?
If you are getting an error, include the entire error message, as in these examples:

  • I get the error "Error 7217" when I start a game.
  • I get the error "Direct 3D device driver does not accurately report texture memory usage" when starting Thief.
If you have a symptom (but no error messages), make a statement about the problem, like this:

  • I can't install the Linux drivers.
  • I am limited to 640 x 480 and 16 colors.
  • Missing textures on walls in Vampire The Masquerade

This applies to:

Intel® 82810 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)
Intel® 82815 Graphics Controller
Intel® 82845G Graphics Controller
Intel® 82865G Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)
