model: Aspire 5741-333G32Mn
BIOS: 1.23 (newest)
OS: Windows 7
It's quite old model but there are drivers for Windows 7 provided, so everything should work properly but it doesn't.
when I install clean Windows 7 OS, everything is fine until I install driver (188.8.131.525) for integrated intel video card. After restarting laptop, Windows doesn't start up properly. It freezes at Windows logo (black screen with logo in the middle) and nothing happens. Logo itself even stops moving.
Same happens if I install driver with Windows Update and generic driver from Intel website.
I have tried Windows 7 (32 bit and 64bit versions), Windows 8 (I can't even install it because OS installs video drivers before finishing install), even tried Ubuntu and Mint. Nothing works.
How to make this problem go away?
