TO ANYONE USING WIN10 WITH OLD INTEL ATOM PROCESSORS/ INTEL GRAPHICS MEDIA ACCELERATOR 500
After hours of trying different graphic drivers for an old Acer Aspire One 751h (Atom Z520 1.33/2gb/250gb), where the last version provided on Acer support site (22.214.171.1243) is bugged, and newer ones like 126.96.36.1990 that claims to support Z500 processor Series but isn’t even recognized on win10 as a valid driver to Intel GMA500 adapter, I found a driver version that works without bugs (so far): 188.8.131.520. Thank you: reddit.
So, to anyone trying to install this specific graphic card driver, don’t waste time trying to install the ‘latest’ driver/software, just go with the latest driver release FOR the graphic card. You can find a copy here.
When searching Intel you get nothing, thanks!
When installing, you will have to set the file properties of setup.exe to compatibility mode first so it thinks it’s running on Windows 7.
Honestly, Windows 10 works on an old laptop like this, but is slow as $h*7! I’m going back to Windows 7 on this one, to keep the machine useable.
