Default New GMA 500 driver 2011 - 11-23-2011, 01:13 PM

Hello to everyone again

As many dell 1010 owners, I am in a desperate seek for right GMA 500 drivers. Recently I came across this thread

DriverX by Yushatak (Custom GMA500 Driver) - Pocketables Forum

and installed these custom made drivers. I could finally load and play my favorite Heroes III on my dell but in my case (my monitor is the standard definition) the desktop was cut down on the start menu bar. In addition I could not use the HDMI to use my desktop monitor, which I use a lot. The intel graphics menu is not availiable.

These drivers obviously were made for suporting GMA 500 in general and they seem to be the best so far as do not limit Open GL functions and stuff...

Can somebody with the right knowledge use them to create the right ones for dell mini 1010.

I think that there are many owners who would desperately want that.

sorry for my english
