So i recently built my own computer and I do not have a discreet graphics card for reasons known to me. Apparently the Intel 3570k on-board graphics are not compatible with vista or at least I hope thayt is not the case so I can play a few light games. I would like to install the graphics driver for my p[processor to run Intel graphics on vista but I do not know what to download. I have the asrock extreme4 motherboard by the way.

Please don't give me grief about not upgrading, I know vista sucks.

I tried it and let it sit over night and still said analyzing when I woke up. Not sure how long this is supposed to take, but 8 hours seems ridiculous. Are there any other options for doing this? I'm on Google chrome by the way.Here is my Minecraft crash report if it tells you anything. Keep in mind I am not using a video card.



Bad video card drivers!
-----------------------

Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

Is there a model number for your motherboard?

I would consider 10 minutes long enough.

Have you already tried to update any relevant drivers through Device Manager.

As per Queen-Evie, identify the motherboard and search for relevant drivers.

Some here may be appropriate:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=Z77%20Extreme4&o=All

As you have specifically referred to Minecraft, looking at the system requirements,
it may also be something to do with Java.

The Extreme4 model number I found is Z77.

I was thinking more along the lines of downloading the User Manual and asking did you follow the instructions in the manual?

The specific section on graphics is 2.7.2 (at least that is where it is for the American version)

Vista is mentioned on page 26 of the guide.

I may be barking up the wrong tree with this and if I am someone please let me know. I'm willing to admit this kind of stuff is out of my league and every once in a while I come up with something that turns out to be lame.

The download for Z77 Extreme4 user manual is here http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme4/?cat=Manual

You should also have a manual which came with the motherboard.

I checked it out, but from what I read, they were talking about dedicated graphics cards. However I did read something about VGA drivers. I will try installing those and see where that gets me.

Hey guys I fixed it! It was the VGA drivers that i forgot to install. Now to help anybody out, if you are using on-board video, you must install your motherboard's VGA drivers.
