I finally figured out why my laptop runs graphcs faster in VISTA than in XP. My VISTA install was running 11/2006 drivers, when I updated to the latest VISTA drivers (9/2007) the graphics performance slowed down markedly (28fps to 18 fps) which matches the speed I am getting with XP and the latest driver. Reinstalling the 11/2007 VISTA drivers brought my fps back up. So it looks like I really want last years Intel 845Gm Express XP drivers but I can't find them on the iNtel site of elsewhere on the web. Anyone know of a site with old intel video drivers or have a copy?
