New GMA 500 Video Driver (126.96.36.1995 Vista/Win 7) - 05-31-2009, 09:41 PM
I just manually installed this driver on my Mini 10 w/ Windows 7 RC (32 bit) without an issue so far. Might be the answer to some of the video issues in Windows 7. Updated XP drivers are also on the same site.
Here is the quote from Intel GMA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As of May 2009, available driver revisions are: 188.8.131.525 Windows Vista / Windows Seven RC. These are the first to allow Full HD video hardware decompression. 184.108.40.2066 Windows XP"

New Driver for GMA 500 - 06-09-2009, 01:23 AM
I installed the new driver in Mini 10 with Vista basic, Don't really see any difference in video, still choppy, tried a few videos from MSN and Hulu still crappy. Guess the only thing to do is opt for a 10V.

I downloaded the driver revisions 220.127.116.115, it seemed to help a little with MP4's on i-tunes but when I tried to stream an episode on Hulu it was still choppy and had to turn the quality down to 'low' so the biffer could take it. I hope Dell recognize that there is a need for a netbook that is designed for multimedia use, to work with multimedia!!!!!!

In Vista have you checked the power options that your Mini is currently using? I'm dual booting Xp and Windows 7 and I noticed that Win7 sets the performance plan to balanced by default even when plugged in to external power. I'm wondering if that could also be the case in Vista and that is hurting the video performance.
