I've installed a new hard drive (5 year old Dell Inspiron 580 Intel Core 5i, 750 @ 2.67Ghz, 8 GB Ram, Windows 7 64-bit)had detected errors - "back up now and replace" errors). Bought the recommended hard drive from Dell. I've reinstalled windows 7 (first) and then the drivers (had the disc from Dell). However, the video drivers (Intel ClarkDale \integrated Graphics Rev:A00) will not install, insisting my system doesn't meet the necessary requirements. As I'm out of warranty, Dell is rather like 'too bad, so sad' and my on-line support contract expired last September. I've gone to the Dell website and loaded drivers from there (as per my service tag requirements) - still same dratted message about not meeting system requirements. It also reads my whiz-bang 24" flat screen monitor as a generic monitor. I've tried every way to load drivers for this (disc and Dell website), but still no change. I don't know if the monitor is related to the issue, but I cannot progress with my reinstall from here without the video card drivers working. Any ideas?
