    I’m trying to resurrect an old tablet PC (Motion M1400, 1.1 GHz Proc, 1.5Gb RAM – vintage 2004) with Windows 7 and am hitting problems with drivers for the Intel 855GM chipset, specifically the video driver.

    I know Intel have said they are not releasing Win7 drivers for this set (bad decision, IMHO) and I have found an apparent solution using a grabbed copy of Vista drivers:

    Unfortunately I dont have a Vista installation to start from, so ideally I need a workaround which uses the downloadable driver

    btw, I need the proper driver to allow screen rotation (vital on a tablet) and hibernation (ditto) which are not supported by the default VGA driver

    All suggestions gratefully received!
