thanks for the quick reply. I kinda had that idea already...guess I'm asking how to go about doing that. That's what I've been trying to find out how to do for the last 5 hours.
Tried downloading and installing previous drivers from the Intel site, but they all give me this fancy thing. Actually, my screenshot shows the earliest version I found.
I realize that this may be more suitable for a different forum altogether, but people have posted similar things in here...and maybe there's a program that I didn't find through googling, that can go in and change what I need manually?
And that 3DAnalyze didn't help. Tried going by the instructions, then tried just checking EVERYTHING off save for disabling textures and rendering obviously. Did that just for the hell of it, and still nothing.
Just FYI, and because perhaps this thread can be useful to the next guy like me who couldn't find one of this like.
