  • Hey Fidelis Andryanus,

     

    Try visiting your computer/motherboard manufacturer's website to find instructions and a download for the latest BIOS update for your computer's motherboard.

     

    Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) or Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS/UEFI settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

     

    Look forward to hearing back from you.

  • Are you using the default driver Windows Developer Preview installs, or did you download the driver from the manufacturer's website?  Post the driver and specifications of the chipset you are using and we will escalate the info for further review.

  • I was able to install Windows 7 drivers. Using original Asus Eee PC T91MT (Intel gma 950) drivers. Just had to force the installer to be in Windows 7 compatibility mode.

     

    Now I'm able to run resolutions above 800x600 and smoother UI.

  • Sorry, can't give you any further help.

    Just want to know if it's just a "Device Manager error" or do you have any actual Problems regarding this message?
