Windows 7 with Intel 852/855 GM Graphics Driver
Installation of Windows 7 into Fujitsu FMV-820NAL
Problems caused by some drivers not being installed
Fujitsu FMV-820NAL is a Windows XP based PC which was released in 2004. If you try to install Windows 7 (32Bit) into it, two drivers will be not installed, the first is a vender's endemic FUJ02B1 driver and the second is i852/855gm (Intel 82852/82855GM/GME) graphics driver. Therefore, [sleep] item in the shut down menu of the Start Menu will become inoperative, and the output from VGA port on the back will be inoperative too. (The correct displaying will be also not supported, if FMV-820NAL is equipped with a laterally long LCD.) In the first half of the heyday of XP, i852/855gm was a de facto standard graphic device in a PC equipped with Intel CPU.
On the other hand, a sound driver and other drivers will be installed by Windows Update.
Windows 7 operates using a graphic driver which accords to a specification called WDDM(=Windows Display Diriver Model). The WDDM driver of i852/855gm which FMV-820NAL requires is not provided. In place of it, 'Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor' whose functions are limited is installed.
You can install the XDDM(=XP Display Driver Model) driver of the old specifications for Windows XP into 32Bit Windows 7, if you force OS not to require the signature.
But practically, if you try to update by normal way, the installation will be refused with the notification of "It is the newest". Furthermore, if you try to delete 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' with your administrator rights, it will be reinstalled after the restart of PC. Because, it is owned by TrustedInstaller service.
Installation of FUJ02B1 driver
Download IndicatorUtility named E1005486.exe and execute it. Install it by the INF file in the folder named U300 appearing after defrosting, then it is OK. If you run Setup.exe, you will be able to incorporate the indicator itself.

Installation of i852/855gm driver
If you try to install XDDM driver, in some cases, you may encounter troubles such as; it is uneffective even if you get the notification of "Ready to use.", or the status of device that should have been changed is not displayed to device manager. In these cases, if you scan the hardware change in Device Manager, changes will be displayed after reinstalling. Therefore, if you confirm the changes and reboot your PC, after each installation or uninstallation, you will be able to prevent troubles. If you install in a procedure including some mistakes, you may fail the installation of driver, or you may let the installed driver work not correctly.
- Obtain a driver used in XP/2000. Defrost the version 184.108.40.20632 of Intel which you can get from the following site, and store it in the suitable location. This version also installs two drivers involved with the hardware, and the output to an external monitor is enabled.

- Confirm status of the graphic, as a preliminary step.
- Check the list of shutdown menu in Start Menu. When there are an uneffective 'Sleep' item and an effective 'Hibernate' item in it, it is OK.
- Check Device Manager. It is OK, when a driver is installed for 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' belonging to 'Display adapters' and when a driver is not installed for 'Video Controller' belonging to 'Other devices'.
- Start by Safe Mode. (Push [F8] just after Windows starts.)
- Because you must choose specific INF file directly, update a driver by manual operation as described below
- Update the driver of 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' from Device Manager.
- Browse your computer.
- Pick from a list.
If you select to search it in the location, you may fail in the correct installation. Because there are various INF files in this folder.
- Push 'Have Disk' button.
- Choose ialmnt5.inf file in the folder which you prepared. The folder name is "…\2000".
Then, reconfirm the location on the disk only for forms.
And then, reconfirm the hardware model only for forms.
- Installation begins. Ignore verifying of the publisher, and install anyway. The installation will continue.
- You will be required to reboot your PC.
- If reboot is not demanded, scan for hardware changes.
After the installation, confirm that two 'Intel(R) 82525/82555 GM/GME Graphics Adapter' appear in Device Manager.
- Reboot your PC by Safe Mode, because there may be incongruousness between device and driver.
- Driver will be installed again, and two 'Intel(R) 852/855 GM/GME Graphics Controller' appear.
- At this step, perform normal reboot, with the environment that is available to Windows Update.
- Four drivers will be installed automatically.
- They will be checked at first in Windows Update and then will be searched next in a folder being constructed beforehand.Then 'Intel(R) 852/855 GM/GME Graphics Controller' will be installed for 'Video controller (VGA compatibility)', and 'Intel(R) 852/855 GM/GME Graphics Controller' will be installed for 'Video controller'.
There will be a notification of the preparations completion after these two installation. But, you must not close the dialog. Wait(Important!).
You must be careful about subsequent installation.
- You will be left waiting, for considerable long time (10 minutes or more in some cases ). However, installation will begin after all. 'Intel(R) Graphic Chipset (KCH) Driver' and 'Intel(R) Graphic Platform (Soft BIOS) Driver' will be installed for two Undefined Devices.
- Reboot is necessary, but you will not receive any notification. Reboot your PC by your self.
- After reboot, two items of 'Graphics Options' and 'Display Modes' will be added to the context menu of the desktop.
How to use context menu is a bit difficult. So it is described here.
- When you connect a monitor to VGA Dsub 15 connector on the back of PC, there will appear two monitor icons in the 'Change the appearance of your display' window (you can open it up by selecting 'Screen Resolution' from the context menu of the desktop).
- When you try to [Identify], you can confirm a number assigned to each monitor. If you select clone output mode, two are same number.
- Clone output mode
- To switch to the clone output mode from the extend display mode, select one (usually, outer monitor) among two monitor on the "Change the appearance your displays" windows first, and turn off the display next. Then 'Output to' item appears in the context menu on the working desktop. Choose 'Monitor + Notebook' in 'Intel(R) Dual Display Clone'.
- You can switch the output destination between "Monitor", "Notebook" and "Monitor + Notebook" by pushing [Fn]+[F10] keys. They toggle. In addition, you can do it by using 'Graphics Properties' too.
- Extend display mode
- To change to the extend display mode from the clone output mode, choose 'Extend Display' in the context menu of desktop. It switches and set the external monitor to the main display. If you want to set the LCD to the main display and to use external monitor to the expand display, select the LCD display icon and set it to the main display. You can use Taskbar on the main display.

Return to 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'
The XDDM graphic driver is not supported at all. It seems to be difficult and mysterious for users to understand the behavior while the driver is installed. It seems that the driver is installed as 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' covers up ’Video Controller (VGA Compatible)' or i852/855gm also covers up ’Video Controller (VGA Compatible)'. So, confused incongruousness seems to have occurred somewhere when you failed in the installation. When you failed in the installation, it is a good idea that you put it back to 'Standard VGA Adapter' working normally and try to install again.
This seems to be the normal state after the recovery.
- Delete all drivers of i852/855gm by Property of i852/855gm of Device Manager, by Normal Mode.
- Delete another i852/855gm. (device itself)
- Restart by Normal Mode. Confirm the existence of 'Hibernate' being explained in upper 2.i. Ordinarily it does not appear. If it appears, it already succeeded.
- Restart once more by Normal Mode, when the item of 'Hibernate' does not appear. And confirm once more. When it is OK, it succeeded. If the resolution was reset to 800 by 600, set it to previous resolution.
- If the item of 'Hibernate' did not appear yet, there seems to be a problem that the driver was not installed although the device information was right. Designate the driver directly and install it again as follows...
- Reboot by Safe Mode. And update the driver of 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' from Device Manager, as next...
- Browse your computer, and choose 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' from the list of Compatible Hardware. Install the driver, and reboot by Safe Mode again.
- Reboot by Nomal Mode. When the item of 'Hibernate' appears, it is OK. The resolution will be reset to 800 by 600.
- After these procedures, if 'Video Controller (VGA compatible)' appeared as 'Other Device' without driver, the incongruousness seems to exist in the information of the device type. Designate the information of the type, and install the driver again as follows...
- Start by Safe Mode. Delete two devices, and reboot by Safe Mode again to delete any incongruousness. 'Video Controller (VGA Compatible)' and 'Video Controller' as 'Other Devices' without drivers appear.
- Carry out the update of the driver for 'Video Controller (VGA Compatible)'. When the type of the device was asked, designate 'Display Adapter'. Browse your computer, and choose 'Standard VGA Graphics Adapter' from the list of Compatible Hardware. Install the driver, and reboot by Safe Mode again.
- Reboot by Nomal Mode. When the item of 'Hibernate' appears, it is OK.
