I have a Dell Dimension E510 that i've tried bith the 32-bit and 64-bit
It has the 945G chipset and I'm using the integrated graphics. Now here's
where it gets weird.
Vista 64 by default on installation, loads an Intel LDDM graphics driver,
and glass works just fine. However the video card is shown in device manager
as an unknown device. Running Windows update does not find an appropriate
However, the graphics, including Glass works just fine.
I then decided to try Vista 32.
Again, upon initial installation, Vista loaded an Intel LDDM driver and
Glass and everything else worked just fine. Again, the video card was marked
in device manager as an unknown.
Upon choosing that device in device manager and telling the system to update
the driver, it found a graphics driver for the 945G chipset. That got rid of
the exclamation mark in device manager, but Glass is no longer an option!.
also, the 945g driver does not indicate it's a LDDM or WDDM driver.
