Wecome to the Intel® Embedded Community.
If I understand your question, you are developing an embedded computer module but the problem you are experiencing is on a standard desktop or laptop PC ? If that is the case then I would suggest two possibilities:
1. Contact the support team of your PC manufacturer.
2. Check out this Intel site to make sure you have the latest drivers:
In the meantime, let's see if someone in the community can help.
I have a GS45 chipset board under development. Attempting to load on a standard Vista Driver (v18.104.22.1688) . The board is designed under the assumption that the VGA port will be the primary output.
The assumption of the chipset , is that this will be a laptop, so I am guessing that the driver configures itself with the panel output as the primary display.
After installation of the driver under Vista, the system reboots but you get a blank display, because the assumption on the part of the driver is that you have a flatpanel output connected up (because its a laptop , right?). After you get into the Vista main screen you can change it to be VGA monitor only.
I imagine that part of the .inf file that configures the driver contains default registry parameters to pick the output to use and I am looking for guidance on that point.
However I don't know where to ask on this massive site. I started here, but I am figuring after the post that this isn't the proper forum.
Anyways, I appreciate your reply.
Hello again, Tony.
I found another place you might try. It is an Intel forum dedicated to graphics display topics. While there are advanced topics for game developers etc, your problem sounds like a pretty straightforward configuration issue and you might find someone there who knows the answer.
When you get there, note the 2 announcements at the top of the forum board - they give some direction on where to go for support.
