Windows 7 X64 Support For Intel GMA 3650 (or GMA 3600)

I recently purchased an Intel D2700 MUD motherboard and I cannot find drivers for the Win7 x64 integrated graphics (Intel GMA 3650 aka PowerVR sgs545). The accompanying CD contains Win7 x32 version only. When I run it I got an error:

This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing
the software.

I tried to use online utility Intel Driver Update Utility Graphics. I used Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer without success. First, UAC prompt appear, and then endlessly spinning progress-bar with text “Analyzing computer…“. The text in UAC prompt is:

Program file name: System Requirements Lab
Verified publisher: Husdawg, LLC

I downloaded this utility (intel_srldetect_4.5.5.0) and started it from my hard disk. I got an error:

A network error occured while attempting to read from the file:

Standard VGA driver works for this video card but without hardware acceleration:

Hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your
video card driver, which could slow game performance. Make sure you
have the latest video card driver installed and that hardware
acceleration is turned on.

Where I can get appropriate driver?

I installed the beta (GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5) from the @someonewhoknowsstuff‘s answer in safe mode, because in usual mode I’ve got an error:

An error occurred while registering one or more components.

Setup will exit.

After installing OS didn’t start but began crashing on start with BSOD:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.



Technical information:
* * * STOP: 0x000000CE (0xFFFFF88007039C68, 0×0000000000000008,
0xFFFFF88007039C68, 0×0000000000000000)


Thus, I forced to remove this driver

Intel does not support 64-bit with that motherboard’s graphics chipset. That’s the official line.

Judging by version of the existing 32-bit driver (v, you may be able to get away with using the “Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 Driver for Windows 7* 64 bit“, as it reports “This driver package contains version (”.

I’ve dealt with Intel drivers for many years now, and a) they have a duality when it comes to version numbers, and b) they are very good at bundling similar drivers together.

Often the driver ‘version’ is the bundle’s version (v15.12.xxxx), which contains one or more drivers with their own version numbers (ie v8.14.xxxx); or something to that effect, I’ve never hammered it down exactly. :)

Unfortunately, if that one doesn’t work you may be out of luck.

search google for “GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5″. tested on Acer Aspire One D270-26Dkk with Intel atom N2600, 4Gb DDR3 A-data 1333Mhz, under windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

Good luck!


you can force the driver to install editing the .inf file, in this particular case: igdlh64.inf

  1. from device manager (Run -> DevMgmt.msc) right click and copy the Hardware ID of the display adapter
  2. insert it (in my case PCIVEN_8086&DEV_0BE1; you can keep the substring if you want/have it – this is enough to corectly identify the vga onboard) in the [Intel.Mfg.NTamd64] section of the .inf file replacing one, any or even all the existing hardware_IDs, so you will be able to try all the drivers for all the supported boards.
  3. replace the mames that will appear after identification with your own in order to be able to test them one by one in the section
    ; Localizable Strings
  4. manually install the drivers one by one, then restart, and try the next one (this is why you need to give them different names at the end of the .inf file)

if the driver is working with your board, you will see in DevMgmt.msc the message “This device is working properly” otherwise, you will get a 43 code – device was shut down by windows.

good luck trying any driver!

NB: under a 64bit OS, you need x64 drivers for a hardware. you may try to use a virtual machine with win32 installed, but.. what`s the point?

“GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5″. tested on Asus Eee PC 1225С 11.6″(1366×768)LED/N2600 (1.6)/2Gb/320Gb/GMA 3600/Wi-Fi, windows 7 Porfessional 64bit.
It works!

It’s not really an Intel GPU but an integrated/rebadged PowerVR SGX545, so Intel doesn’t seem to have much control over it. They do not make 64-bit drivers for this GPU, and haven’t made any plans to do so public.

I’m in the same boat. I’m using a Shuttle XS36V with that CPU, now as a low-power server. The same GPU (albeit slower clocked) was available in an older Atom, and there are still the same issues today with that 32-bit driver. I don’t expect much here.

Intel recently released a “test” driver for x64 Windows.

Title: Intel® HD Graphics Test Driver for Windows 7 & Windows 8 64 (zip)



Operating Systems:Windows 7 (64-bit), Windows 8, 64-bit


  • 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics 3000/2000
  • 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics 4000/2500


The driver GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5 works for me! I’m using a PC with Intel Atom Dual Core N2600, Chipset Mobile Intel NM10, 2gb memory DDR3, and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits.

Search on Google for GFX_Vista_Win7_64_8.15.8.1050_Beta5 and install normal.

PS: the video driver have a little problem loading screen. It is slow and shows a black screen for +- 3 secs before show the complete screen.
